    Default Very Touching Picture. ADVISORY - contains pic of open surgery on unborn baby.

    I don't know when this actually happened, but seeing it for the first time is quite heart warming.




    The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by 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. As Dr.Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon's finger. Dr.Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

    The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, '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 pregnancy isn't about disability or an illness, it's about a little person.'Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful.

    The reason I posted it was because people can still have abortions at 24 weeks yet at 21 weeks old this wee fella reached out and grasped the hand of this surgeon. IMO it shouldn't be removed, but obviously if it upsets people so be it

    A title change to make people aware of whats contained would be sufficient, then people have a choice to look.

    This picture should change a few MP's views on reducing the allowed time for abortions. 24 weeks is FAR too late in my opinion.

    Not that i personally agree with abortion anyway unless on serious health grounds.

    i agree, this is a vectra car website not a pro/ anti abortion website.

    abortion is about choice, its the mothers choice, just because a women chooses to go down this route, dont imagine its an easy option.

    they didnt have unprotected sex for the fun just to get rid, come on get a grip.

    thread should be removed...............

    HOW HAS THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE, THE MOTHER, THE CHURCH OR THE GOVERMENT............WHERE DO I SIGN

    PATHETIC...............
