Prenatal Surgery Gives Breathtaking Results

Medical breakthroughs provide ever-increasing windows to the womb, displaying the beauty and humanity of the unborn baby.  Dr. Tara Sander Lee, an associate scholar of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, points to major research showing breathtaking results of surgery on unborn babies to treat spina bifida.  This condition results when the spinal column doesn’t fully close during development.  The research also shows the baby fares better when surgical intervention is done earlier in pregnancy, before twenty-six weeks.  Sadly, half of all babies diagnosed with spina bifida are aborted.  We must educate more parents and medical professionals to this modern-day reality.  Tomorrow you’ll hear how medical intervention is saving more and more preemies.
