(Posted 08/28/09 www.RemnantNewspaper.com) They weigh less than 3 pounds, usually, and are perhaps 15 inches long. But they can remember, reports Jennifer Harper of The Washington Times (July 16, 2009):
The unborn have memories, according to medical researchers who used sound and vibration stimulation, combined with sonography, to reveal that the human fetus displays short-term memory from at least 30 weeks gestation or about two months before they are born.
"In addition, results indicated that 34-week-old fetuses are able to store information and retrieve it four weeks later," said the research, which was released Wednesday.
These findings were obtained by scientists from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Maastricht University Medical Centre and the University Medical Centre at St. Radboud, both in the Netherlands, after a study employing gentle but precise sensory stimulation was made of 100 healthy pregnant women and their fetuses:
On five occasions during the last eight weeks of their pregnancies, the women received a series of one-second buzzes on their bellies with a "fetal vibroacoustic stimulator," a hand-held diagnostic device used to gauge an unborn baby's heart rate and general well-being.
The baby's responses primarily eye, mouth and body movements were closely monitored over the weeks with ultrasound imaging to gauge "fetal learning" patterns. The researchers found that the babies acclimated themselves to the sounds and vibrations to the point that they no longer bothered to respond a process known as "habituation." "The stimulus is then accepted as 'safe' " by the babies, the study said.

Science Catches Up with Religion
Researchers prove fetuses have memories, know mothers voices, and have sense of taste, touch and smell
now they will have to change the name "abortion" to "state sanctioned murder".
These are the babies whom the Democrats, including the late Ted Kennedy, consider sub-human and abortionists’ fodder. Our country is being judged for this because God will not overlook such cruelty, even though the Roman Catholic Church does.
I doubt any science will change the minds of the baby killers.
Ps 139:13,14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Oh, come on. What mother did not already know this?
This study is supported by many or our personal experiences.

Woops. Was watching Obama, Bubba and Hilary at the Funeral.
Yup. We sang a Welsh lullaby to our children in the womb so it would have a more calming effect on them when we sang it to them after they were born. This helped a great deal when we wanted them to sleep. This has long been a tradition in my family - my father got it from his mother, and passed it on to me, and his mother got it from hers.
Thanks, that was one of the verses I was searching for; the others are:
“And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found favour with God. And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His Name JESUS.” (Luke 1:30-31)
Two times in bibical history there were orders by those in authority that ordered the death of the new born: After the birth of Moses, and after the birth of Jesus!
Pro-lifers need to disavow the cold, clinical, and dehumanizing term ‘fetus’ and use ‘baby’ or ‘infant’ exclusively.
"Ps 139:13,14 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. "
These are some good verses too, I think:
Lk 1:42 "blessed is the fruit of thy womb."
Lk 1:44: "the infant in my womb leaped for joy."
Gn:25:22: "But the children struggled in her womb, and she said: If it were to be so with me, what need was there to conceive? And she went to consult the Lord."
Jb:31:15: "Did not he that made me in the womb make him also: and did not one and the same form me in the womb? "
Is:49:1: "Give ear, ye islands, and hearken, ye people from afar. The Lord hath called me from the womb, from the bowels of my mother he hath been mindful of my name."
Very Good !!!!Science will never catch, especially false science!
1. The person awakens at night in his bedroom.Another interesting tidbit is that, at least at the time I read it several year ago, among supposed abductees there were none that were born by Caesarian. All were vaginal deliveries. My explanation for alien abduction stories is that they are a combination of two things:
2. He is paralyzed.
3. He is borne along paralyzed somewhere in the night.
4. When he arrives it is to a brightly lighted room filled with strange objects and weird-looking genderless bald creatures that appear to be mostly big eyes.
5. They do medical things to him, painful things, that he is powerless to resist, often involving sharp pains to the abdomen and/or to the genitals.
6. He is eventually returned to his bed.
1. the mind awakening while the body is still in the paralyzed state characteristic of certain parts of the sleep cycle, andThe experience was, for some, so striking that memories were formed, but merely as sensory images with virtually no intellectual context since the infant had not yet developed a sophisticated means of explaining his world to himself, and accompanied by feelings of pain (which is hardwired) and fear (which depends only on a sudden unexpected change of environment especially when accompanied by pain, such as being expelled from the womb) which are known to be effective agents for imprinting sensory memory. The processing comes in later when the sensory memory for some reason returns. And perhaps it is this trauma bridging the two locations of pre and post birth that serves to result in a lasting neural imprint of the sensory input. It would be interesting to see if there is a greater number of 'abductees' who were born to mothers undergoing 'natural' childbirth without drugs for pain and in hospital than to those who were heavily sedated (which can affect the unborn infant as well).
2. a heavily-processed memory of one's earliest traumatic experience--being born.
