I'll just make two simple comments"
Military bullets are FMJ (Full Metal Jacketed).
By the Geneva Convention, they must be.
Those bullets are entirely more humane(?) than typical bullets made for hunting and non-military-grade bullets which are designed to "mushroom" and expand to do more damage.

As we all know (grin) a 50 cal is to be used solely as an anti-materiel weapon. You are enjoined against its use against enemy personnel. Snipers that use 50 cals are merely decommissioning enemy uniforms and headgear.
How would you know where the fetal head IS in order to make such a shot?
Now, I will grant you, there are ways to use a rifle in a target rich environment that will definitely optimize your count. They are awful to the casual civilian and decorum prohibits me from going into detail here.
however, along those lines, if you were an insurgent sniper not bound by LOAC or ROE, you might use pregnant ladies for bait. A US sniper or SF doing sniper work would not.
TDawg is right, there is no entry wound, no wound channel and no deformation of the bullet.
This is not real.
What you see is a piece of photoshop work to make the Assad regime appear evil when it's really the opposite is far closer to the truth.
Syrian soldiers don't target civilians, that's who they're fighting to protect.
The FSA are mainly foreign born jihadist mercenaries who don't give a rat's ass who they shoot.
More propaganda to fuel hatred unjustly against Assad.
Eta: I know you mean well and have a good heart Cheesy. You only posted because of your concern for the innocent - nothing wrong with that my friend. Many here are experienced not only as hunters and shooters but some possibly as xray techs or medical personell. When frauds are exposed it gives us all a chance to see the methods they use and how they try to gain our sympathy for their causes. This is the modus operandi of propaganda - something we've all fallen for in some form or another.
Just don't be too quick to judge things as they appear, ATS has taught me that.
This should go over big with the liberal crowd who know nothing about ballistics though.
