A Beautiful Baby Girl

Amillia Sonja Taylor was only 9 1/2 inches long and weighed less than 10 ounces when she was born October 24, 2007, just 21 weeks and six days after conception.

Now between 25 and 26 inches long and weighing 4 1/2 pounds, Amillia is set to be released soon from the hospital.

One of the arguments I've heard over the years from the pro-abortion crowd is that a fetus is not a baby until it can live outside the womb. My response has always been that if that is true, then the only thing that determines when the fetus becomes a baby is the advance of medical technology. As the first baby known to survive after being born at less than 23 weeks gestation, little Amillia proves once again that as medical technology advances, a baby can live outside the womb at an ever-increasingly early age. Does that mean that fetuses are becoming babies at an earlier age, or is it possible that they have always been babies and that the abortion industry has simply chosen to deny that fact? Is it also possible that fetuses much younger than 21 weeks and six days are already babies?

One more note: When I look at the picture above, I don't see just a blob of tissue or just a part of the mother's body for her to do with what she chooses. I see a pair of remarkably small human feet.

The article said she was born a day earlier than 22 weeks. Amazing!

How big a spread (and on what page) do you think the New York Times or the LA Times gave this story?

I saw this in BBC which is more liberal than any american mainstream newspaper.

It's great that the BBC has reported this. Hopefully, as more and more cases like this become known, more people will begin to see the fetus for what it is: a human life.
