The picture below is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by a surgeon named Joseph Bruner.
The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would
not survive if removed from his mother's womb. Little Samuel's mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics
nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner's remarkable surgical procedure.
Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.
During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. During the surgery on little Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed, hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger.
The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity.
The editors titled the picture, "The Hand of Hope"
The text explaining the picture begins, "The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother's uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life."
Little Samuel's mother said they "wept for days" when
they saw the picture.
She said, "The photo reminds us my pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person." "The Hand" of the fetus. You can see the actual picture, and it is awesome...incredible.
And hey, pass it on. The world, especially Americans, needs to see this one.
This child, little Samuel, was one of the fortunate little human beings! But since 1973 there were almost 60,000,000 other little human beings who weren't as fortunate here in America!
When will we stop ending the lives of little children,
prior to their birth?
Here in America where the 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision making abortion legal in the United States remains, with our country approaching 60 million aborted (murdered) babies. Our nation hasn't merely 'SLOUCHED TOWARDS GOMORRAH" it has nearly passed it!
Some day we will all stand before God and try to explain our actions!
It is best you get down on your knees and ask our Lord, Jesus for forgiveness.
