Absolutely correct! I was thinking of not returning
to this thread if people want to be foolish and
disrespectful to life.

The medical staff.....how bloody cruel they are.
This baby obviously suffered from a severe abnormality of craniosynostosis or craniopharyngioma.
The baby should had been aborted in the earlier stages of gestation or euthanased immediately upon birth.

the second one, the baby is holding its own head up. That makes me think it may be a hoax? New born babies can not hold up their heads.edit on 13-4-2011 by amatrine because: (no reason given)
Harlequin-type ichthyosis, a skin disease, is the most severe form of congenital ichthyosis, characterized by a thickening of the keratin layer in fetal human skin. In sufferers of the disease, the skin contains massive, diamond-shaped scales, and tends to have a reddish color. In addition, the eyes, ears, penis, and the appendages may be abnormally contracted. The scaly keratin greatly limits the child's movement. Because the skin is cracked where normal skin would fold, it is easily pregnable by bacteria and other contaminants, resulting in serious risk of fatal infection.
The harlequin-type designation comes from both the baby's apparent facial expression and the diamond-shape of the scales (resembling the costume of Arlecchino), which are caused by severe hyperkeratosis. The disease can be diagnosed in the uterus by way of fetal skin biopsy or by morphologic analysis of amniotic fluid cells obtained by amniocentesis. In addition, doctors can now usually recognize common features of the disease through ultrasound, and follow up with 3D ultrasound to diagnose the condition.
I agree with some of the earlier posts. A quick death would be preferable.edit on 13/4/11 by felonius because: (no reason given)

There's a whole host of images on the internet of babies born with deformaties like this from Iraq due to the use of depleted uranium. My guess is that this is where this video has originated from.
Anencephaly and other physical and mental deformities have also been blamed on a high exposure to such toxins as lead, chromium, mercury, and nickel. Source
