Americans recently were introduced to a baby who easily could have been a candidate for partial- birth abortion. When Samuel Armas was just a 14-week- old fetus, he was diagnosed with spina bifida. Doctors operated on Samuel while he was in the womb at just 21 weeks gestation.
Then, as the surgeon was closing the womb, the miracle happened. Baby Samuel pushed his hand out of the womb and grabbed the surgeon's finger. Photographer Michael Clancy caught this astonishing act on film. And in that instant, Clancy went from being pro-choice to being pro-life.
As he put it, "I was totally in shock for two hours after the surgery . . . I know abortion is wrong now -- it's absolutely wrong."
