From Parent Society, March 22:
A Greek doctor posted this incredible picture on his Facebook page of a baby he delivered. And as you can see it was no ordinary delivery.
The baby was delivered via c-section, but was still inside the amniotic sac after being removed from the mothers body. In fact, according to Dr. Aris Tsigris, the OB/GYN in charge of this delivery, the baby does not even know that it has been born yet.
Most sacs break on their own or are broken by the doctor when a woman is ready to give birth. This is known as a womans water breaking. It is extremely rare for a baby to be born with the sac still completely intact.
However, although it is rare, it is not dangerous. Dr. Tsigris informs us that the baby will not drown inside the bag because it is feeding off the placenta. The baby will automatically start to breathe on its own once the bag is broken. The doctor admits however that he was left breathless by the site of this baby .
The baby thinks its still in the womb and is therefore living as peacefully as when it was in its mothers uterus.
This baby was still connected to his or her mother by the umbilical cord to the placenta. The baby had not drawn a breath.
Would abortion proponents say it was still ethically/legally acceptable to kill this baby? There are certainly some pro-abortion activists who would argue yes. Had her pregnancy officially terminated? I think they would argue no.
After all, Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow argued during a Florida legislative hearing last week that born babies who were showing signs of life could still be killed according to the whim of the mother. And the baby in the photo above wasnt technically yet born.
There is also what is called a hysterotomy abortion, wherein an incision is made into the uterus, such as in a c-section, but either the amniotic fluid is ruptured and the baby is drowned before removal, or the cord is cut and the baby bleeds to death before removal, or the baby is removed alive and discarded or killed outright.
I am sure there are abortion proponents who would argue this baby was still hysterotomy abortion candidate.
LifeNews.com Note: Jill Stanek fought to stop live birth abortions after witnessing one as an RN at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. That led to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act legislation, signed by President Bush, that would ensure that proper medical care be given to unborn children who survive botched abortion attempts.
This happens, but rarely.
It is said that such a baby born this way is destined for greatness.
Churchill is an example.
Hard to understand why killing babies is so important to the extremists. There’s no “pro choice,” at least for the baby. Only the mother gets the choice. The baby has none. As President Obama said, “If we could only save one child.”
Wow, what a beautiful picture! I’ve never seen this before.
Born with a caul.
It all goes back to Genesis 3.
The woman desires the role of the man,
in this case, the “freedom” from childbearing.
I saw this yesterday on FB. It is an absolutely stunning picture. God Bless this child.
The little guy just wanted to stay in paradise a little longer...
Churchill was born with bag intact? Interesting!

So was Liberace!
That is incredible. Some liberal monsters would be totally okay with cutting open that precious baby’s head and scrambling his brains with a blender. No other terminology for it but premeditated murder.
I guess it would happen more often if doctors didn’t puncture the sac. My OB did this with my two... and for those who haven’t witnessed it... it’s no big deal at all. Some sort of medical “knitting needle” device is used. I think it hastens labor/and therefore delivery as well. Pretty cool pictures though....
At that point it’s not “abortion.”
“Would abortion proponents say it was still ethically/legally acceptable to kill this baby?”
Of course they would. They would say it was ethically/legally acceptable to stomp the baby to death with hobnailed boots. Or tossing it in a Moloch shaped incinerator.
