Along with the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh, there has been much conversation about one of the most controversial Supreme Court rulings in the past half century… Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Since then, millions have been needlessly killed in the name of “healthcare.”
Proponents of abortion argue that the pre-born baby is not a human being, but simply a “potential” human being. In their defense of Roe vs. Wade, they rarely mention the baby at all, usually completely ignoring the reality of another human life involved, instead focusing on terms and phrases like “a woman’s right over her own body” and “a woman’s right to choose” and “a woman’s right to healthcare.” In over 99% of the cases, abortion is not about a woman’s health… it’s about an unwanted baby.

Back in 1999 a photographer was on hand for an amazing medical surgery… as a surgeon operated on a preborn baby in utero (at 21 weeks). What the photographer captured that day speaks a million words against the shallow arguments for abortion. In this amazing photo, the baby Samuel’s hand is reaching out and grasping the surgeon’s finger.
Here is wonderful two-year-old story of what happened to that little baby, who was raised in suburban Atlanta:
The Bible says…
“For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.”
“You shall not murder.”
