Womb With a View
The following was posted by The Wall Street Journal's James Taranto, who is actually pro-abortion but who frequently points out the holes in the "clump of tissue" argument. The link has some fascinating pictures:

London's Daily Mail offers proof that human beings are not animals:

An unborn elephant, tiny but perfect in every way. A dolphin swimming in the womb, just as it will have to swim in the ocean the moment it is born. An unborn dog panting. Each one amazing and now, thanks to these remarkable pictures, they can be seen for the first time.

Using an array of technology, the images reveal what until now has been a secret--exactly how animals develop in the womb.

The unborn elephant, shown at the link, is quite something to see. By contrast, as we all know from reading the newspapers, there is no such thing as an unborn human being. We develop by a little-understood process in which a clump of cells, similar to a tumor or a fingernail, miraculously becomes a baby at the moment the entire clump is exposed to air.

That humans and animals come into the world in such radically different ways pretty much demolishes the notion that we are the product of Darwinian evolution, doesn't it?

Yes, and all of the "movements" expecting mothers feel is really just gas bubbles in her digestive system...

actually, the film makers also made another special for national geopgraphic that tracks the development of human babies usign the same techniques.

it's really quite good. there are a few references to evolution but it is utterly amazing to watch. i gave Stephanie the dvd for christmas.
