A new type of ultrasound scan has produced vivid pictures of a 12 week-old foetus "walking" in the womb.

You gotta see these images to believe it. Go to the page and check it out.
The new images also show foetuses apparently yawning and rubbing its eyes.
Remember, people, this is at TWELVE pre-partem weeks.
The scans, pioneered by Professor Stuart Campbell at London's Create Health Clinic, are much more detailed than conventional ultrasound.
Professor Campbell has previously released images of unborn babies appearing to smile.
He has compiled a book of the images called Watch Me Grow. ...
Now, since even this revealing technology will probably be insufficient to warm the conscience of many pro-abortion folks, we'll need to ask Prof. Campbell to compile a companion volume, Watch Me Be Poisoned, Dismembered and Aborted.
He says his work has been able to show for the first time that the unborn baby engages in complex behaviour from an early stage of its development.
Professor Campbell told the BBC: "This is a new science for understanding and mapping out the behaviour of the baby.["] ...
ERROR: Don't say the "baby", Professor, say the "uteran growth." Also, avoid saying "behavior"; we prefer the more clinically precise term "progression."
The images have shown:
From 12 weeks, unborn babies can stretch, kick and leap around the womb - well before the mother can feel movement
From 18 weeks, they can open their eyes although most doctors thought eyelids were fused until 26 weeks
From 26 weeks, they appear to exhibit a whole range of typical baby behaviour and moods, including scratching, smiling, crying, hiccuping, and sucking.
