James Elgin Gill (born on 20 May 1987 in Ottawa, Canada) was the earliest premature baby in the world. He was 128 days premature (21 weeks and 5 days gestation) and weighed 1 lb. 6 oz. (624 g). He survived and is quite healthy. Amillia Taylor is also often cited as the most-premature baby. She was born on 24 October 2006 in Miami, Florida, at 21 weeks and 6 days gestation. At birth she was 9 inches (23 cm) long and weighed 10 ounces (283 grams). She suffered digestive and respiratory problems, together with a brain hemorrhage. She was discharged from the Baptist Children's Hospital on 20 February 2007. The record for the smallest premature baby to survive was held for some time by Madeline Mann, who was born at 26 weeks weighing 9.9 oz (280 g) and 9.5 inches (24 cm) long. This record was broken in September 2004 by Rumaisa Rahman, who was born in the same hospital at 25 weeks gestation. At birth she was eight inches (20 cm) long and weighed 244 grams (8.6 ounces). Her twin sister was also a small baby, weighing 563 grams (1 pound 4 ounces) at birth. During pregnancy their mother had suffered from pre-eclampsia, which causes dangerously high blood pressure putting the baby into distress and leading to birth by caesarean section. The larger twin left the hospital at the end of December, while the smaller remained there until 10 February 2005 by which time her weight had increased to 1.18 kg (2 pounds 10 ounces). Generally healthy, the twins had to undergo laser eye surgery to correct visual problems, a common occurrence among premature babies. Historical figures who were born prematurely include Johannes Kepler (born in 1571 at 7 months gestation), Isaac Newton (born in 1643, small enough to fit into a quart mug, according to his mother), Winston Churchill (born in 1874 at 7 months gestation), and Anna Pavlova (born in 1885 at 7 months gestation)."

All legalizing abortion did was take the abortionist out of the back alley and put him into a 'respectable' office where he could be protected by 'law'. While Kermit Gosnell was the most henious of abortionists i find it hard to beleive there aren't more abortionists out there like him. While they may not be as henious and cold blooded as Gosnell they can't be much better. The truth is if it had not been for the death of the one woman at this abortionist building Gosnell may never have been investigated let alone come to trial. Consider all the babies who had been murdered over years without an investigation at all. Maybe now we will have to face what abortion is and it won't be out of sight,out of mind. In a country that has in its foundation a respect for life abortion is shameful. It has made many cold,indifferent and callous.It is no wonder we see so much violence in the news-so cold and cruel- it's hard to imagine regardless of whether you're pro abortion or pro life.We've become barbaric. I don't see that this will change until we respect the life of a human from conception to death.I even read posts on Facebook where people call the fetus a a parasite now.I had no idea these people thought they themselves were parasites. The science is wrong. If you begin as a parasite,you develop as a parasite and you die a parasite. We begin life as human beings and our lives end as human beings.However, that people would even begin to justify abortion by calling a human being a parasite shows how low we are sinking into the culture of death. It is a good thing that the natural conclusion of the culture of death IS death and that the culture of life has as its fruit-LIFE. I hope this verdict opens a HONEST debate re abortion. We have not had an honest debate regarding this since Roe V Wade and 53 million,a WHOLE GENERATION, has been destroyed. GENOCIDE. Tomorrow we'll talk about Fatima.

Kermit Gosnell Verdict
As a Catholic it was not lost on me that the Kermit Gosnell verdict came on the anniversary of the First Apparition of Fatima. Why is this significant? It is because Our Lady is Our Mother. It is also because of all people she would desire most the protection of the unborn. It is also true that she said in the end her Immaculate Heart would triumph. As Catholics we have that hope and we accept those words with faith. It was also the anniversary of the day Blessed John Paul II was shot,underwent 5 hr of surgery and was very close to death.He attributed the miracle of his survival to Our Lady of Fatima.The bullet was placed in the crown of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima by Blessed John Paul himself. The Culture of Death has only one outcome. Death leads to death. It is the natural conclusion. If Mary's Immaculate Heart is to triumph then life triumphs. If nothing else the verdict of guilty will change the debate re abortion. Abortion has been hidden. Nobody wants to see. They have couched the word abortion in the word choice. The debate is about ABORTION,not choice. What difference does it make if the child is murdered outside the womb or inside the womb? Advances in science and medicine has made viability even more possible.
