Worth1000Words: Fetal Hand Grasp

Shhh…you’ll wake the baby…                                                      2009052021

This incredible photograph was taken on August 19, 1999 by a man named Michael Clancy during a surgery to correct spina bifida. The “Fetal Hand Grasp” photo appeared for the first time on September 7, 1999 in U.S.A. Today.  The amazing little boy, Samuel Armas, was born on December 2, 1999.  His somewhat unusual first baby picture has become the most popular photograph in the greatest human rights movement of our age, the Pro-Life movement.

“When I see that picture, the first thing I think of is how special and lucky I am to have God use me that way,” Samuel told FOXNews.com. during a recent interview, almost ten years after that picture was taken.
