« The Strangeness of Normalcy: Meditations on 34 Years Since Roe v. Wade. | Main | The Sweeter World We Abandon »

January 22, 2007

Pictures Worth 1,000 Words

Inthewomb_2Today's BreakPoint, "A Visual Apologetic for Life," highlights a new DVD and accompanying book from National Geographic, called In the Womb. New medical technology has enabled us to have a glimpse into human development in the womb that 34 years ago, when Roe v. Wade, was being argued, was unimaginable:

Now, 3-D and 4-D scans—scans that literally piece together images to show a baby in motion in the womb—have brought the miracle of life into new focus. In the Womb author, Peter Tallack, calls this new technology the medical equivalent of the Hubble Space Telescope. And the images it zooms in on during the odyssey of pregnancy may change the minds of women contemplating abortion and ordinary men and women who have not reflected deeply on abortion’s horrors.

Read or listen to the full BreakPoint here, and consider purchasing a copy of In the Womb for your local crisis pregnancy center.

Praise God for such a valuable movie! Gestation and birth are wonderful miracles. Let's pray that this movie is used by God to change hearts about the unborn.

My husband and I lost a baby at 6 weeks past gestation. Though many at the hospital tried to convince me that my baby didn't resemble a baby yet, and therefore, wasn't worth my tears, we still felt the impact of that loss. When a few weeks later, I checked out the book, "Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Questions" (by Randy Alcorn), I saw what my 6 week-old fetus looked like on the day he died. A very beautiful but tiny baby (only about the size of a grain of rice). Babies like mine are killed without any thought by the "simple" act of taking the "morning after" pill. After a year of mourning, I feel even more strongly about the value of life. Pray for Roe vs. Wade to be overturned and for our nation to become a nation of life instead of death.
