Recently, a baby boy was born prematurely, at 23 weeks, in a Mexican hospital, with no vital signs. The doctor pronounced him dead and sent baby’s body to a refrigerator in the hospital morgue. 

But when funeral workers arrived in the morgue six hours later to retrieve the body, they found that he was moving and crying. 

They immediately sent for the father and the doctor and the moment was captured in a moving video. The father speaks to his son, ‘Here I am. Carry on fighting, little one, resist, my love. ‘Please God, accompany this little one, stay with him because he’s still alive.’” 

And, incredibly, the baby is alive and well. Even more incredible is that here in Colorado, it would be perfectly legal to kill this baby in utero. And, in Massachusetts, lawmakers are debating whether doctors should be required to care for a baby like this out of the womb. 

This baby’s humanity is obvious, even if we have lost ours.
