News (that will be denied) supporting the humanity of the fetus

The Washington Times and other sources are reporting that studies have revealed/proven that a fetus (READ: "unborn child") has memory from an early state of development. This should have immense implications in the ongoing pro-life versus pro-abortion debate. We'll have to wait a few days to see how the main stream media handles this news.

Do read the whole article but feast your eyes at the following paragraphs about mid-way through the report:

"It seems like every day we find out marvelous new things about the development of unborn children. We hope that this latest information helps people realize more clearly that the unborn are members of the human family with amazing capabilities and capacities like these built in from the moment of conception," said Randall K. O'Bannon, director of education and research for the National Right to Life Educational Trust Fund.

A call to NARAL Pro-Choice America for comment on the implications of the research were not returned.

Sometimes it is amazing how science actually proves what most people would otherwise rationally consider to be commonly sensible.

Some years ago there was an article in the Catholic Homiletic
Review a very western Catholic Orthodox magazine. The article was by a convert a professor at Leeds University in the UK. He measured a heartbeat in a foetus at about four days. That was never discussed in the mainstream
