Stunning fetal surgery images offer amazing glimpse of baby in the womb

Posted in Fetal Development with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2017 by saynsumthn

Fetal surgery is becoming more and more common, saving lives and improving the conditions of preborn children. Like many other medical advances, open fetal surgery (as displayed in the images below) offers an amazing look at the developing person inside the womb.

Images and videos below are of surgical procedures and may be disturbing for some viewers.

It is amazing the extent to which members of the medical profession will go to save preborn children growing inside their mother’s wombs. Tragically, there is an inhuman side of “medicine” as well, which believes that ending the lives of other preborn child in an abortion is the better solution.

We long for the day when abortion in unthinkable. Until then, these tiny persons in the womb testify of their humanity.

GOP tax plan recognizes baby in the womb as a human being

Posted in Republican with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 20, 2017 by saynsumthn

| (From Live Action News)

The co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus has labeled a 529 college savings plan for an “unborn child” in the GOP tax plan a “back-door attempt to establish personhood from the moment of conception.” Congresswoman Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) criticized the wording in a November 2 press release, issued shortly after the plan was released by the House. The move follows a change by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to define human life as ‘beginning at conception.’

According to Politico, the GOP tax bill “would allow expectant parents to start putting away money for college and private school tuition, wading into the battle over when human life begins.”

The proposal defines the ‘child in utero’ as, “a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development” and reads:

UNBORN CHILDREN ALLOWED AS ACCOUNT BENEFICIARIES.—Section 529(e) is amended by adding at the end the following new paragraph:
‘‘(6) TREATMENT OF UNBORN CHILDREN.—
‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—Nothing shall prevent an unborn child from being treated as a designated beneficiary or an individual under this section.
‘‘(B) UNBORN CHILD.—For purposes of this paragraph—
‘‘(i) IN GENERAL.—The term ‘unborn child’ means a child in utero.
‘‘(ii) CHILD IN UTERO.—The term ‘child in utero’ means a member of the species homo sapiens, at any stage of development, who is carried in the womb.’’

NBC pointed out that the bill’s terminology “mirrors a section of the 2004 Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which was enacted after the murder of Laci Peterson, who was pregnant.”

In response to the news, Paul McLeod, BuzzFeed reporter for Capitol Hill, tweeted, “I’m reading this as anti-abortion wedge. If an unborn child can be a beneficiary, that makes them a legal person, so how can they be killed?”

Paul McLeod Tweet on GOP Tax Bill Tweet

Following release of the bill, abortion advocates went ballistic.

Their fear is that if it can be established that the preborn child in the womb is a person, it could lead to overturning the infamous Roe v. Wade decision, which forced abortion on the nation.

NARAL on GOP Tax Bill Tweet

“On its own, I find it a despicable play to lay the groundwork for “personhood” bills and ending abortion rights,” Calla Hales, manager of A Preferred Woman abortion clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina told Bustle.

“Naturally, you’d expect me to say that as an abortion provider. As a tax paying citizen, I’ll frame it this way: Frankly, it’s fraud. A potential life cannot have assets. It cannot work, earn money, or open a bank account (or have one opened for it). … I find it logically impossible and incredibly unethical to fiscally account for a fetus,” Hales added.

Planned Parenthood, which gets over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, expressed its opposition to the move as well, telling CNN that defining a preborn child in the tax code would end up restricting access to abortion.

“It is absurd that House Republican leaders would use a tax bill to try to advance their agenda to undermine access to safe, legal abortion,” Dana Singiser, Vice President for Public Policy and Government Affairs at Planned Parenthood Action Fund told CNN.

Planned Parenthood, whose CEO was hired for her political organizing skills (not her health care experience, because she had none), has a record of Medicaid fraud, covering for child sexual predators, selling aborted baby parts, and chose Halloween to tweet an outrageous and eugenics-style message to the Black community that abortion is safer for women of color than childbirth. (Incidentally, Planned Parenthood’s founder was a known eugenicist who once gave a speech before the Ku Klux Klan.)

 

“Even in the tax reform debate, Republicans could not resist including offensive provisions to appease an extremist minority, ” Rep. DeGette wrote, “The tax code is no place to define what constitutes an ‘unborn child.’ What’s next, giving a Social Security number to a zygote?”

But Mallory Quigley, communications director for the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, disagreed, telling NBC News that the measure is “a small increment in the momentum that we’re building to ensure that one day every child is welcomed and protected under the law. We hope that it stays in the House bill and that it stays in anything the Senate puts out.”

Abortion supporting Hillary Clinton insists she is a “real person” while unborn babies are not

Posted in Hillary clinton with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2015 by saynsumthn

Imagine that, a pro-abortion politician having to convince others that she is a “real person?” Such was the case of Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton this weekend on “Face the Nation.”

In her first Sunday show appearance in four years, CBS News’ John Dickerson asked Hillary for three words that describe Hillary Clinton.

Hillary I AM a real person

Unable to answer the question in three words, Clinton said she had been in public life so long people forget that she is just a regular person that goes shopping emphasizing, “I am a real person.”

Clinton, once thought to be the sure-win for the Democrat presidential nomination is treading water in the polls as opposition Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders gains support among liberal voters.

But a recent CNN/ORC Poll shows Hillary is leading the socialist libertarian Sanders by 42% of Democratic primary voters nationally, compared to 24% for Sanders, 22% for Biden and 1% for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

But, Clinton’s insistence that she is a “real person” does beg the question:

    Exactly what IS a real person?

In the same Face the Nation interview when Hillary Clinton was asked if she supported a federal limit on abortion at any stage in pregnancy, she gave this heartless response:

“This is one of those really painful questions that people raise and obviously it’s really emotional. I think that the kind of late term abortions that take place are because of medical necessity and therefore I would hate to see the government interfering with that decision. I think that uh, again, this gets back to whether you respect a woman’s right to choose or not. And I think that’s what this whole argument, once again, is about.”

In addition to supporting late term abortions generally, as Senator, Clinton defended gruesome partial birth abortions where the baby is delivered up to the shoulders with the head remaining in the birth canal. Rather than allowing the child to simply be born, Clinton supported allowing the abortionist to then suck out the child’s brain in order to deliver a dead baby.

Hillary Partial Birth abortion

During that The March 12, 2003 debate, Senator Rick Santorum pointed out to Clinton that out of the 182 partial birth abortions reported in one year in the state of Kansas, none were done for medical reasons.

Hillary Clinton still repeated that lie despite the fact that years earlier, pro-choice spokesperson, Ron Fitzsimmons who headed the of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers (NCAP) acknowledged to Nightline that, “The majority of these procedures are performed in the late second trimester on healthy women and healthy fetuses.” He estimated the abortion lobby was performing 3000 to 5000 of these procedures annually.

Ron Fitzsommons Lie partial birth abortion

Then in 2013, late term abortionist Susan Robinson admitted many women are not coming to her for late term abortions because of health reasons.

In an interview she admitted the following:

    “I’ve had women that only got a positive on their third test. And either way they think they just got pregnant. They have no idea they’re in their 24th week. So they make an appointment for an abortion, and it takes a few weeks, and they have their ultrasound and find out that they’re at 27 weeks, which is too far for an abortion anywhere. So then what happens? They either give up or have a baby, or they go on the Internet and they find us.”

Hillary Planned Parenthood

Hillary Clinton, is a long time supporter of abortion and Planned Parenthood and once praised their racist founder, Margaret Sanger. She remains an ardent defender of Planned Parenthood despite under cover videos from the Center for Medical Progress exposing their baby harvesting operations.

Hillary Clinton once said she wanted abortion to be “safe, legal and rare” claiming for political motivations at the time, it was a moral issue that should not be diminished as a moral issue.

Today, Hillary Clinton is much more hardened and refuses to restrict child killing in the womb at all. By consistently mouthing the line that abortion is a woman’s right to choose, Clinton denies that unborn babies are “real persons” worthy of protection under the Constitution. So, it is ironic that now the America public is refusing to see Hillary as a real person as well.

Planned Parenthood doc: pro-lifers should focus on late term abortion

Posted in Late term abortion, Planned Parenthood late term abortions with tags , , , , , , on March 1, 2015 by saynsumthn

If the right-to-lifers are at all smart they will focus right in on the 39 week-old fetus.”

Those are the words of a former Planned Parenthood abortion doctor.

He was the medical director of Planned Parenthood and in 1990 he resigned over a dispute with the abortion giant regarding late term abortions.

Planned Parenthood doctor, Stanton Goldstein performed abortions, and for over five years he oversaw administration at two of Planned Parenthood’s Massachusetts abortion clinics.

I’m against this referendum as it legalizes abortion up to delivery,” Goldstein told the Boston Globe, “I cannot think of a single reason for aborting a healthy baby,” he said.

Planned Parenthood late teram abortion Stanton GOldstein 325222682697564607_n

The Planned Parenthood abortionist told the Globe that members of the medical community also objected to the proposed amendment which would have allowed late term abortion for reasons of rape or incest.

Goldstein told the AP that he left his job at Planned Parenthood because he could not join the group in backing abortion rights ”at any time in cases of rape or incest or to protect the life and health of the mother.”

In contrast, a Brookline Planned Parenthood abortionist and board member, Dr. James Koch, told the Globe he was okay with the idea of late term abortions but said, “I would perhaps he happier if there were less latitude beyond 24 weeks, with better spelling out of the circumstances under which a termination could take place at that time,” he said.

But then Koch added, the Planned Parenthood board voted unanimously for the amendment of abortions at any time in the pregnancy.

Nicki Nichols Gamble, executive director of the state office of Planned Parenthood, said she agreed with the amendment, while Planned Parenthood’s associate director at that time, Susan Newman, told the Boston Globe, she was also okay with the measure.

Everybody’s got their own ambivalence,” she said. “Abortion is such a personal thing that people set personal criteria. The one thing we’re united on is it should be a woman’s decision and not the governments.”

Newman, then told the AP that the language, “is not the first choice for a lot of people. But she said the number of abortions performed after the second trimester was ”tiny.”

Newman’s flippant answer appeared to annoy Goldstein, who pointed out to the AP, “If the number of abortions performed after the second trimester is so ‘tiny’ then why are we legislating for it? Is it so ‘tiny’ because it has not been legal up till now?”

As hard as it is to comprehend, some abortionists find killing babies days before birth repulsive. That said, Planned Parenthood doesn’t.

As Goldstein explained to the Associated Press, “I was in an administrative role in an organization that stood for something politically that I could not agree with.”

“It goes too far for me,” he said. “I as a physician believe that a destructive procedure in the third trimester is either unethical or immoral …” he said.

Sadly, Planned Parenthood’s acceptance of late term abortion has never waned.

Cool 3D robotic embryo and fetal models

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on February 17, 2015 by saynsumthn

TurboSquid brags on their website that they are the world’s source for professional 3D models. As best as I can tell, the company makes 3D models for presentations, games, and other visual marketing needs.

But a few of their 3D models caught my attention, like these Robotic Embryo models.

KRobotic Embryo

Robotic Embryo

The company says online that, “TurboSquid models are used by game developers, news agencies, architects, visual effects studios, advertisers, and creative professionals around the world. Whether you’re a 3D artist or not, you’ve probably seen TurboSquid models hundreds of times and didn’t know it – which is fine with us!

TurbioSquid Search

“Our goal is to save artists the time of making a great model, and instead let them add their own personality to their creations. Our customers tell us they save 27 hours per model purchased, which can be a lifesaver in a time crunch.”

The company develops 3D Models used in sports, animals, medicine and now, even film.

But…if you search under the term – ABORTION this is what will appear:

The company makes a 3D Model for unborn human fetuses in the early stages of development – here is one at 8 weeks:

3D Human Embroy 8 weeks

In addition, they offer late term unborn children 3D Models as well:

This fetus model is a part of their Embryo development collection. :

The group also has a wider selection under their fetal model page:

The models range in price from approximately $30.00 well into the hundreds of dollars.

At TurboSquid’s start in 2000, letting anyone upload and publish something for sale instantly was revolutionary – people wondered what kinds of craziness could happen. We’ve come a long way since then, and more than 2.5 million people have joined TurboSquid, with over 25,000 artists in our community working to satisfy the modeling needs of artist-customers worldwide,” the company writes on their website.

Comments spark change in story title on twin babies

Posted in Media Bias with tags , , , , , , on February 10, 2015 by saynsumthn

A story published by The San Francisco Globe was originally titled, “Doctor X-Rayed her pregnant belly. What they saw Inside was a bit upsetting.

Twins

The article featured the way twin babies interact in the womb and the “upsetting” portion of the title sparked outrage by readers.

After a few comments were posted asking what exactly the SF Globe saw that was so upsetting, the title of the article changed to, “Twin Babies Interact In The Womb

SF Globe Twin Babies

Given the bias the media continues to show against unborn children because of abortion- it is great to see how push back, even in this story, caused a change.

In the comments, Lisa Hansen, wrote, “I have 5 children – 3 single births and a set of twins, and I can tell you they all moved the same (kicking, punching, rolling around, etc.) They’re not hitting or kicking each other – they’re just moving about like normal babies … it’s just that with twins they don’t have as much room to move. I see nothing “upsetting” about this, and I think people are trying too hard to see something that isn’t there.

And Karen Shoaff, also commented, “I agree with Lisa Hansen. There is nothing ‘upsetting’ about this MRI. These twins are just moving within their space as any normal baby. You people at SFG really need to learn how to write copy. You have some of the worse headlines I’ve ever read and I’ve been an art director/writer in advertising, marketing and PR for over 30 years..”

Others write, “You people at SFG really need to learn how to write copy. You have some of the worse headlines I’ve ever read.”
