Via Pandagon, who got it from Eve's Apple, who got it off a Pro-Life mailing list. Copied below is the actual text of the email that Eve's Apple received on Monday. Man, the things that people come up with... First off, I'm going to be nit-picky and point out that at six weeks, it's not a fetus, it's an embryo. Yeesh. Second, I'm willing to grant that, yes, it does bear a resemblance to an embryo. However, where is their proof that it is a human embryo, eh? Let's play a little game that a biology professor once demonstrated to my class called Spot The Human.
One of these is a human embryo. The others are a tortoise, chicken, pig, cow, and rabbit. Can you tell which is which?
If it makes you feel any better, I can't tell without the answer key, either. Incidentally, this is one of those annoying little facts that help prove that, yes, evolution does happen. It's called Comparative Embryology, or something like that. Similar embryo forms indicate a common ancestor. But I digress, as usual. I don't know about you, but I think hurricane Katrina bears far more resemblance to a chicken embryo than a human. This means that we're really being punished by the Chicken God! Egads! Repent, America, for your foul behavior towards our fowl brethren! (In all seriousness, though, my heart goes out to those caught in the path of destruction. I'll being going in soon to donate blood and money. For those of you who can spare the cash, donations to the Red Cross can be made here.)

Satellite picture of Hurricane Katrina at NOAA.com looks like a 6-week unborn human child as it comes ashore the Gulf Coast, vicinity states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida at 12:32 PM, Monday, August 29, 2005
Hurricane "Katrina" (reportedly means "Pure" in Russian) - satellite image - Monday, 29 Aug 05, 12:32 PM (EDT) - coming ashore Gulf Coast - satellite image looks like 6-week fetus

The image of the hurricane above with its eye already ashore at 12:32 PM Monday, August 29 looks like a fetus (unborn human baby) facing to the left (west) in the womb, in the early weeks of gestation (approx. 6 weeks). Even the orange color of the image is reminiscent of a commonly used pro-life picture of early prenatal development (see sign with picture of 8-week pre-born human child below). In this picture, and in another picture in today's on-line edition of USA Today*, this hurricane looks like an unborn human child.

Baby-murder state # 3 - Florida (73 abortion centers) - Hurricanes Bonnie, Charley, Frances, Ivan, Jeanne in 2004; and now, Hurricane Katrina in 2005
