This picture is from a 4-D ultrasound, Wired News has the story. What struck me was how much humanity the picture reveals. We face a constant bombardment of dehumanizing messages about the preborn. An example was last night on The National there was a sound bite from Joanna Manning asking people who are considering returning to the Catholic Church, "What happens when you daughter needs an abortion?" Joanna Manning defines the issue, in that one line, in terms of only one person. If technology like 4-D ultrasound can help animate that there is more than one person involved, that's a good thing.
