A video of a newborn baby refusing to let go of its mother has gone viral, and it's no wonder why.
The video captures a phenomenally powerful moment. I cannot imagine anyone not being moved by it.
Immediately after watching this video, one of the first people that came to my mind was Wendy Davis, who filibustered for 11 hours to protect late-term abortion, to protect the act of killing a baby just like the one in this video.
We've seen the photos of Gosnell's victims, we know the reality of the horror of late-term abortion.
But we know that morally speaking, late-term abortion is no worse than first-trimester abortion. There is something about this clip of a newborn baby, mere minutes outside of the womb, so dependent upon its mother, so attached to its mother that it simply cannot and will not let go of her face, that we see the evidence. We see that the unmatched bond between mother and child is something that doesn't begin at the moment of birth. It begins much, much earlier, and simply continues to grow in intensity until the moment of birth.
I am astonished, and I believe you will be too.
