      Another nail in the coffin of the pro-abortionist view that a foetus is not
      a human being (not surprisingly, this story has not been picked up by the
      mainstream US media):

      SMILING FROM THE WOMB

      Pioneering scanning techniques have produced astonishing images from inside
      the womb which show babies apparently smiling and crying.

      Experts believe the breakthrough could lead to advances in baby health for
      a whole range of conditions, including Down's Syndrome.

      The pictures offer a new insight into foetal behaviour.

      The ultra-sound scanning techniques capture images which show the foetuses
      yawn, blink, suck their fingers and seem to cry and smile.

      Up to now, doctors did not think infants made such expressions until after
      birth and believed they learned to smile by copying their mother.

      The procedure has been pioneered by London obstetrician Professor Stuart
      Campbell at the Create Health Centre for Reproduction and Advanced Technology.

      His pictures reveal foetuses moving their limbs at just eight weeks.

      The new techniques, known as 3D and 4D scanning, allow for far more
      detailed examination of the foetus.

      "There are many questions that can now be investigated," said Prof Campbell.
      "Do babies with genetic problems such as Downs Syndrome have the same
      pattern of activity as normal babies?

      "Does the foetus smile because it is happy, or cry because it has been
      disturbed by some event in the womb?

      "Why does a foetus blink when we assume it's dark inside the uterus?"
