The power of a smile...

The smile of this unborn baby disarmed the mother, and she could no longer consider aborting her child.  This story speaks to the power of an ultrasound image and 3D imaging to turn the hearts of all mothers back to their children.  Likewise, it speaks to us of the cries of all the disabled - unborn and born.
A mother was unable to abort her severely disabled son despite doctors' warnings after seeing her baby's smile in a 3D scan picture.

Katyia Rowe was told her baby's brain had not formed properly and that he would never walk or talk and would need 24-hour care.

But after seeing real-time moving scans of him smiling, blowing bubbles, kicking and waving his arms she made the heartbreaking decision to go through with the birth.

Tragically Lucian, as she named him, died nine hours after he was born. -finish reading here.
Thinking of this story last night, I couldn't help but wonder what happens to the remains of aborted babies?  Are they discarded like kitchen waste?  I shuddered to think that.  I prayed, and I also begged forgiveness for my sins - especially my sin of looking the other way, of not thinking about "stuff like that".

Many of us worry so much about our self defense, yet we neglect to defend the most defenseless amongst us, the unborn child, the disabled and mentally ill, and the "ne’er-do-wells"...


  1. A nun who regularly counsels in front of abortion clinics told me that the remains of the babies are hauled away like medical waste in a truck.

    Hitler had nothing on us.

  2. Like bio-hazard waste - I was afraid of that. Heart rending.

  3. Ultrasound by ultrasound, the tide will continue to turn away from this horror and toward life and allowing God's will to be done.

  4. I think some of the remains are actually used for vaccines and other medical products. Extremely disgusting.
