    Stunning: Pictures of animals growing inside their mother's wombs

    Simply amazing, a baby elephant in it's mother's womb:

    "The elephant foetus at 12 months, when it is 18 inches long and weighs approximately 26 lbs."

    The UK Daily Mail:

    Using new technology, these images, published in UK's Daily Mail, reveal what until now has been a secret - exactly how animals develop in the womb. They were created by the same team who in 2004 showed how human embryos "walk in the womb".

    Using a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and tiny cameras, the team were able to show the entire process from conception to birth.

    "These kind of images from inside animals have never been seen before," Jeremy Dear of Pioneer Productions, who made the film, told The Daily Mail.

    Even more stunning? A baby dolphin "swimming" in utero:

    I've never asked myself this before, but I wonder: are passionate animal-rights activists pro-life in respect to animal foetuses? How can a female mammal not want it's child? In that regard, every animal-rights activist would have to respect the presumed right of the animal mother to give birth to it's offspring.

    Goodness, what cloudy thinking and paradox-strewn conclusions this raises.

    Let's just take a step back and marvel at the clarity of theses images. Let's hope they sink in.
