BabySteps DVD Goes International. Reveals Unborn Children's Activities in the Womb
WASHINGTON, D.C., JULY 29, 2008 (Zenit.org).- The American Life League's widely distributed DVD "BabySteps" is now available in eight languages.
The DVD features ultrasound images that give detailed pictures of unborn babies from eight to 34 weeks of development as they roll, yawn, blink, smile and suck their thumbs. The images were taken at Doctor Stuart Campbell's Create Health Clinic in London, England.
Campbell pioneered ultrasound technology in 3D that gives much more detailed images than conventional ultrasound and shows the baby's movements in real time.
In addition to English, the narration of these images on "BabySteps" is now available in Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, German, Mandarin and Cantonese.
The DVD was originally released in 2006 and distributed to over 2,000 pregnancy resource centers around the United States. Human Life International and Priests for Life Canada have also availed of the resource, as have other pro-life groups.
"While the ultrasound footage in this production is really the heart and the focus, having the narration translated into seven foreign languages allows pro-life counselors to better assist those who do not speak English as their primary language," said Leslie Tignor, director of American Life League's Associate Program and project manager of "BabySteps."
She added that "with these new translations, we're determined to get this DVD into the hands of every woman considering an abortion."
