12 WEEK OLD BABY WALKS IN THE WOMB!
The BBC. Pip Pip Cheerio! ^

Posted on 06/28/2004 1:31:10 PM PDT by ConservativeMan55

Scans uncover secrets of the womb

Baby 'walking' in the womb A new type of ultrasound scan has produced the vivid pictures of a 12 week-old foetus "walking" in the womb. The new images also show foetuses apparently yawning and rubbing its eyes.

The scans, pioneered by Professor Stuart Campbell at London's Create Health Clinic, are much more detailed than conventional ultrasound.

Professor Campbell has previously released images of unborn babies appearing to smile.

He has compiled a book of the images called Watch Me Grow.

Conventional ultrasound, usually offered to mothers at 12 and 20 weeks, produces 2D images of the developing foetus.

These are very useful for helping doctors to measure and assess the growth of the foetus, but convey very little information about behaviour.

Complex behaviour

More pictures of developing foetuses Professor Campbell has perfected a technique which not only produces detailed 3D images, but records foetal movement in real time.

He says his work has been able to show for the first time that the unborn baby engages in complex behaviour from an early stage of its development.

Professor Campbell told the BBC: "This is a new science for understanding and mapping out the behaviour of the baby.

"Maybe in the future it will help us understand and diagnose genetic disease, maybe even conditions like cerebral palsy which puzzles the medical profession as to why it occurs."

The images have shown:

From 12 weeks, unborn babies can stretch, kick and leap around the womb - well before the mother can feel movement

From 18 weeks, they can open their eyes although most doctors thought eyelids were fused until 26 weeks

From 26 weeks, they appear to exhibit a whole range of typical baby behaviour and moods, including scratching, smiling, crying, hiccoughing, and sucking. Until recently it was thought that smiling did not start until six weeks after birth.

An hour long session using the new technology, which is not yet available on the NHS, costs £275.

He made the comments to a reporter that it was hurtful to nurses to see babies moving after they had performed an abortion on them. He was advocating to make sure that they had stuck a needle in the child to ensure it was dead before they sucked the little life out of the womb.

Soon we'll be able to see more and more!

Pardon me for saying something disgusting, but using this type of technology, one could record the facial expressions of a fetus as it undergoes an abortion. Not that one would want to, but if one did, one could, and if one did, then such a recording might be a powerful tool to show that the fetus does, indeed, feel pain.

Isn't that the truth!

And you know, these pictures are WHY abortion is wrong. It completely invalidates the liberals arguments.

I was sharing these with a co-worker, we just kept oohing and awwing...."Look at those adorable little faces and the teeny tiny toes".

While newborns do not smile until 4-6 weeks after birth, babies in the uterus do. Maybe because the uterus is warm, comfortable, and shielded from loud noise and bright light.

Really birth has to be traumatic. No wonder the kid comes out cross.

These are absolutely astounding images. Really wonderful. Hopefully this technology will be key in helping to unmask the ghastly reality of abortion.

That said, I think we need to be very careful about how we present the information. It's possible that some of the behavior may be little more than wishful thinking on the part of the captioner and/or the doctor.

Just because it looks like "walking" doesn't mean it's really walking, and some telegenic pro-abort is sure to make a glib and believable statement to that effect. Any statements about "smiling," or "grasping," or whatever, need to be handled with clinical precision.
