Met Samuel Armas last night

Shaking the doctor's hand

Great time at the Georgia Right to Life (GRTL) REACH fundraising dinner last night in Atlanta.  I’m in Georgia this week laying the groundwork for our Pro Life Training Academy (PLTA) and Pro Life on Campus (GAP) events at the University of Georgia and Kennesaw State University in November.  GRTL is partnering with CBR on all of this work.  GRTL President Dan Becker featured our cooperative efforts in his remarks last night.

Also in attendance was Samuel Armas and his family.  You may remember when Samuel exploded on the national scene back in 1999, when he reached out of his mother’s womb and grabbed the finger of his surgeon.  The photo became an instant sensation.

Now Samuel is 10 years old.  He and his parents were in attendance last night, and I was thrilled to shake Samuel’s hand.  (Wouldn’t you know it, I shook the wrong hand—the un-famous one—but what the heck.)  Fox News recently ran a story on Samuel, who is now 10 years old!

    Great photo, Fletcher! I also enjoyed reading the Fox News story link. Samuel seems like a fine young boy who will continue to inspire people to recognize that preborn babies have the right to be born.
