Doctors give unborn boy zero chance of survival before he gives them a ‘true miracle’.

Doctors reminded the couple that any child with Down syndrome and severe heart defects would not survive. Because Amy and Aaron were against abortion, a doctor offered another option – inducing early labor at 28 weeks when the baby would be too young to survive.  But Amy knew that was the same thing as abortion.

The Vawters soon found themselves switching to a Catholic hospital in Spokane, WA because it was closer to family and their support network. The doctors there didn’t once pressure Amy to abort and she says she was very happy with their attitude towards her and her baby.

Editor’s note: Somebody should send this article to the ACLU – which recently filed a law suit against Catholic hospitals because they do not do abortions – although I doubt they would care to read it.

The antithesis of “Tiller the Killer” and pro-aborts everywhere

A picture should be ‘The Picture of the Year,’ or perhaps, ‘Picture of the Decade.’  It won’t be. In fact,unless you obtained a copy of the U.S.  paper which published it, you probably would never have seen it.

The picture is that of a 21-week-old unborn baby named Samuel Alexander Armas, who is being operated on by surgeon named Joseph Bruner.

The baby was diagnosed with spina bifida and would not survive if removed from his mother’s womb. Little Samuel’s mother, Julie Armas, is an obstetrics nurse in Atlanta. She knew of Dr. Bruner’s remarkable surgical procedure. Practicing at Vanderbilt University Medical   Center in Nashville, he performs these special operations while the baby is still in the womb.

During the procedure, the doctor removes the uterus via C-section and makes a small incision to operate on the baby. As Dr.Bruner completed the surgery on Samuel, the little guy reached his tiny, but fully developed hand through the incision and firmly grasped the surgeon’s finger. Dr. Bruner was reported as saying that when his finger was grasped, it was the most emotional moment of his life, and that for an instant during the procedure he was just frozen, totally immobile.

The photograph captures this amazing event with perfect clarity. The editors titled the picture, ‘Hand of Hope.’  The text explaining the picture begins, ‘The tiny hand of 21-week-old fetus Samuel Alexander Armas emerges from the mother’s uterus to grasp the finger of Dr. Joseph Bruner as if thanking the doctor for the gift of life.’   
   
Little Samuel’s mother said they ‘wept for days’ when they saw the picture. She said, ‘The photo reminds us pregnancy isn’t about disability or an illness, it’s about a little person.’Samuel was born in perfect health, the operation 100 percent successful. 

(Editor’s note: The modern C-section medical procedure employed here also invalidates virtually every claim the pro-aborts make regarding the need for induced abortion to preserve the health of the mother.)

The picture is awesome … incredible! Please pass it on. The world needs to see it!

Fr. Corapi To Have Surgery Soon

Fr. Corapi To Have Surgery Soon

 

According to details revealed in last week’s internet teaching segment, Father Corapi has a parathyroid tumor and will be going back to the Mayo Clinic next week, for surgery. 

 

It’s a very rare tumor (6 men out of a million get it) which is NOT cancerous, about 98% of the time.

 

The good new is that they ruled out lymphoma, which is what they originally thought he had.  He also said for the past 7 months he was too sick to get out bed 70% of the time; intense exhaustion with flu like symptoms (a result of the excess calcium this type of tumor causes) in addition to osteoporosis.

 

Surgery is the only cure.

 

He talked in fairly great detail about his week of tests; including the anxiety for his family, about maybe “checking out”, i.e., having cancer, etc.

 

His favorite prayer is the Memorare, which is what he asked be prayed for him when he was first admitted to the Mayo Clinic.
