"Inside the Womb"

The two-hour 2006 National Geographic documentary "Inside the Womb" is now available on You Tube. It's in nine parts but very much worth watching. Stunning stuff even for committed pro-lifers who might think they already have this stuff down.

The revolutionary ultrasound imaging techniques of recent years allow the viewer to "see into" the womb like never before. You'll follow the journey of a growing embryo from conception to the beginning of brain activity to the first heartbeat to the development of senses and on to the grand entrance of the baby onto the world's stage. It's really incredible.

Home school parents? Make it part of your curricula soon. And the rest of us? Let's take it for extra credit, huh?
