Here’s some amazing news from the Cleveland Clinic, which is pretty timely, considering that birth defects like spina bifida have been invoked so often recently to defend late-term abortions, or even denying basic medical care to a child that was delivered despite an attempt to abort it.

The Cleveland Clinic reports in a press release:
Cleveland Clinic has successfully performed its first in utero fetal surgery to repair a spina bifida birth defect in a nearly 23-week-old fetus.
A multispecialty team of clinicians performed the surgery in February, and the baby, a girl, was later delivered by caesarean section near full term June 3, making it northern Ohio’s first surgery of its kind. Mother and daughter are doing well.
Spina bifida is a birth defect that is most often discovered during the routine anatomy scan typically performed when a fetus is around 18 weeks old.
Crazy how so many people would argue that the baby girl wasn’t a human being since she hadn’t been delivered yet; then again, there are more than a few “feminists” who consider a fetus nothing more than a parasite feeding off its host.
Screw them: this is awesome news.

On a 23 week old fetus no less. How incredible. God bless the doctors, the mother and the little baby.

It's great that this mother determined her child's life had value.

Beautiful, amazing wonderful news! Especially in the midst of so many in the media who want to forget that a fetus is a life.

If preborn children are patients, they are also people worthy of our nation's protection.

So glad this showed up in my timeline thanks to @MarthaByrne10! I was born with spina bifida. At 35 years-old, I’m grateful for the dedicated research and progress that has been made by multiple top medical facilities.?
