A child reaches from the womb
to take her doctor’s hand

Human Events, by John Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/4/2013 9:49:02 PM

A remarkable photograph of a baby reaching out from the womb to grip the finger of the doctor working to deliver her by C-section has drawn a huge amount of attention on the Internet: The baby is named Nevaeh (it’s “Heaven” spelled backward) and her mother, Alicia Atkins, is a professional photographer. She didn’t take this particular photo, since she was rather preoccupied at the time, so the shutterbug duties fell to her husband Randy. A report at Life News notes that such events are not unknown to hospital staff,

Comments:
What an incredibly moving photo! This should be blown up to poster size and put in the lobby of every Planned Parenthood office.

Fetuses aren´t living things? Let´s see a rock do that.

Note how the Salon lefty tries to pass it off as just a mindless reflex. Sorry, that still means alive.

I have a similar picture that was taken many years ago only it´s in color and a better angle too I believe.

The story behind it was that they had to perform surgery on the mother I believe and the baby wasn´t yet to full term.

When the surgeon was inside the mother the baby reached out and grabbed his thumb. The surgeon pulled his hand just enough so that everyone could see and the picture was taken.

It is an awesome picture.

#5, that picture is the one Matt Drudge quit Fox News over. He wanted to show the photo, but Fox said no, and he walked just prior to his show that day, IIRC. What I loved was that Brit Hume showed the photo the following Monday night on the 60 news show while discussing the controversy.

The baby is from the county south of me; he had spina bifida, and they did surgery at Vanderbilt prior to his birth. I´ve read that the surgeon says the baby didn´t reach out, but rather the hand flopped out as he was closing the incision, and he gently put it back inside. But either which way, it´s precious. As this photo.

I had to come back and visit this photo. Seeing that tiny hand grasping the finger helps to make the horrible news of the day go way, if only for a few moments. Mom and Dad must keep falling in love with their little girl over and over again. How kind of them to share this with us.

Does America need a king?

No way. Install a king and before you know it he’ll be issuing royal edicts changing the law willy nilly to suit his daily whims. What would be left of America then? In parliamentary systems around the globe, the head of state is separate from the head of government. In some countries, like Russia and France, the president (as head of state) is more powerful than the prime minister (who is head of government). In others, like Israel, the president serves simply as a symbol of the nation, while the prime minister runs the country. Europe’s constitutional monarchies limit their heads of

Krauthammer: Obama Ended
The War In Iraq In A Way

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Here is why the history is crucial. The reason that al-Maliki does not listen to Obama -- no matter what he says about reconciling with the Sunnis -- is because America has no leverage. America evacuated. Obama decided we were going to liquidate our presence. We were supposed to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement and to leave a residual element in Iraq that would train the air force, that would train the army, that would also have special forces on the ground that would go on operations, and that perhaps most important, would mediate between the Sunnis

Tone Deaf? Musician claims feds

Everyone´s a critic. A Canadian musician claims that U.S. Customs officials seized and destroyed 11 rare flutes as he passed through New York´s John F. Kennedy International Airport last week. The reason? Concerns they were an ecological threat. The charge from Boujemaa Razgui, who is based in the U.S., has drawn widespread attention -- in the U.S., in Canada, and particularly in the music community. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, though, is disputing the claim that the agency destroyed instruments. Rather, a spokesman told FoxNews.com they only destroyed a handful of fresh bamboo stalks, "per USDA regulations," out of concern that they could

President Obama on Tuesday will meet with Americans who lost unemployment benefits at the start of the year, as the White House ramps up pressure on Republicans to extend the federal aid for three months. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez announced the White House gathering during a conference call with reporters, the latest attempt by the Obama administration to highlight the 1.3 million Americans no longer receiving federal unemployment insurance. “This was not only the right thing to do; it was the smart thing to do,” Perez said of the economic repercussions of halting the jobless benefits. “These programs don’t get

Israeli-Palestinian peace talks:

Secretary of State John Kerry is proposing to offer up US troops to help secure the borders of the new state of Palestine, according to some unconfirmed news reports coming out of Israel. How plausible is the possibility? And would it be a good idea, or, as some military analysts argue, would the White House would be “nuts” to consider it? The US troops would be tasked with helping to prevent anti-Israel forces from coming out of Jordan and reaching Israel, according to Debkafile, an Israeli intelligence and security news service. Palestinian officials are demanding that Israel move its forces from

It’s a new year and you know what that means — new regulations. The Obama administration has wasted no time in writing them. The website Regulations.gov lists 141 regulations that have been posted by federal agencies in the last three days alone. Of these regulations, 119 are “rulemaking,” meaning they establish a new rule. Twenty-three are “non-rulemaking,” meaning the regulations does not establish a new rule. The largest group of regulations have to do with energy and environmental issues, many of them issued by the Environmental Protection Agency. One new EPA regulation is an amendment to a rule on hazardous

The Justice Department on Friday urged Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor to stop blocking the Obamacare mandate forcing organizations to provide insurance plans that include contraceptives, arguing that a religious group contesting the law did not have a complaint. Just before Jan. 1, Sotomayor issued an injunction on behalf of Catholic nuns in Colorado who objected to the birth control mandate in the Affordable Care Act, claiming it violates their religious beliefs. Her decision at least temporarily exempts the Colorado group from the mandate in lieu of a more far-reaching Supreme Court decision on the contraception rules. The Justice Department,

Poll says Michelle Obama more

First lady Michelle Obama´s approval ratings continue to soar far above her husband´s, but a new poll finds that she is far more of an “activist” White House spouse than voters want. Although there is a slight (44 percent to 43 percent) edge in voters who prefer a more traditional than activist first lady, a new Rasmussen Reports poll finds that 54 percent view the popular first lady as an “activist.” Just 32 percent said that she plays “a traditional role.” It´s a role she has tried to straddle. She is not as involved in policy as former first lady Hillary Clinton

When the president has an important meeting behind closed doors, the White House sometimes issues a readout — general summary of what was discussed, with administration spin. After President Obama golfed for five hours with New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, the White House tried to dress it up as a meeting of sorts by releasing a readout: Today, President Obama invited Prime Minister John Key to play a round of golf in Hawaii. The two leaders have long discussed their shared interest in the sport, and they enjoyed the opportunity to spend several hours together on the golf course.

"We will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan. Period." (Barack Obama, June 15, 2009, with variants repeated many times since). Today, any American who isn´t willfully blind knows this "promise" is a very big lie. A lie which was deliberately told by fundamentally-dishonest pushers of Obamacare, because if the truth were widely known at that time the Affordable Care Act would never have become law. It´s a lie that is so egregious,

Eleven GOP attorneys general say the Obama administration is breaking the law by repeatedly making changes to ObamaCare without going through Congress. The attorneys general specifically criticize President Obama´s executive action that allowed insurance companies to keep offering health plans that had been canceled for not meeting ObamaCare´s more rigorous standards. “We support allowing citizens to keep their health insurance coverage, but the only way to fix this problem-ridden law is to enact changes lawfully: through Congressional action,” the attorneys general wrote in a letter to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. “The illegal actions by this administration

According to a detailed report, Kim Jong Un fed his Uncle Jang Song Thaek to a pack of hungry dogs, a deviation from the traditional method of execution by firing squad. "Jang was stripped naked and thrown into a cage, along with his five closest aides. Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is called "quan jue", or execution by dogs." The report, appearing in a Chinese controlled newspaper, stated that the "execution" lasted for one hour and was supervised by Kim Jong Un and "300 senior officials."

Bitter cold. Below-zero. Blizzard conditions. Sorry, Northeast. But those are phrases you´ll be using a lot Friday amid a monster storm. And not just the Northeast, forecasters said. About one-third of the nation -- approximately 100 million people in 22 states -- is in the path this storm. But the Northeast will be hardest-hit, the National Weather Service said. "Heaviest snow will fall from central New York to the Massachusetts coast. Blizzard conditions are possible for eastern Long Island and the Massachusetts coast. Bitter cold will move into the Midwest and East following the storm," the Weather Service said. The

The author of the widely disputed New York Times article on Benghazi repeatedly posed naked as a Princeton student. Far from the moderate journalist pose he strikes now, David D. Kirkpatrick was a prominent campus progressive and activist. Kirkpatrick was arrested for lewd conduct, advocated for classes on pornography, and even posed for Playgirl. “Kinky” Kirkpatrick had a “rather unusual habit of disrobing for photographers in public places,” reported The Daily Princetonian in January 22, 1990. “I’ve never been afraid to drop trou when it seemed like the right thing to do,” Kirkpatrick said of a Playgirl photo shoot he

MSNBC´s Chris Hayes is tired of conservatives snarking about global warming every time it gets cold. During his show Thursday evening, Hayes complained of the "strange bizarre underworld of climate trolls" that came to life when Matt Drudge ironically linked an article on the Drudge Report about cold weather. "Of course, no one ever said that climate change meant it wouldn´t ever be cold," Hayes said defensively, calling the annual tradition "willful stupidity" of conservatives "who delight being on the wrong side of history." Hayes admitted, however, that Drudge had been successful in creating a culture of global warming skepticism. "I mean, Drudge has

WASHINGTON — In the year since he stepped down from Congress, Steven C. LaTourette, a Republican from Ohio, has emerged as one of the top generals in the establishment Republicans’ war against the Tea Party. It is a role that has benefited the Main Street Partnership, a corporate-backed advocacy group he runs, and its effort to raise millions of dollars to protect centrist Republicans from Tea Party challengers. It has also helped draw clients to a separate lobbying office Mr. LaTourette and his wife have set up across the street from the Capitol. But this blitz of activity has led to complaints
