The first remarkable close-up pictures of animals in the womb
An unborn elephant, tiny but perfect in every way. A dolphin swimming in the womb, just as it will have to swim in the ocean the moment it is born. An unborn dog panting.
Each one amazing and now, thanks to these remarkable pictures, they can be seen for the first time.
Using an array of technology, the images reveal what until now has been a secret - exactly how animals develop in the womb. They were created by the same team who in 2004 showed how human embryos "walk in the womb".
I wonder if they already have, or if they plan to do the same with human fetuses inside the mother's womb. It seems to me that it would be a much more convincing argument against the killing of unborn babies than simply showing the fetuses of various animals. Perhaps they don't want to enter into that difficult debate. If they published pictures such as that it would certainly create a stir; at least it should. But there would probably be many who could see those undeniable images and still kill that precious life in the womb.
A man or woman may have eyes to see, but have no heart to feel compassion. Without a heart he or she may as well be blind.
Isn't it amazing how God keeps the collective human ego in check by allowing/enabling us to see more of his creation, and the greatness thereof as our own capacity to perceive it increases...and yet the human heart continues to harden in light of the revelation of each new glorious discovery? It's wonderful, AND it's sad.
