Show Notes


Michael Clancy

Tim Staples

Michael Clancy is a photo-journalist turned speaker.  He is the one who took the photograph of an unborn child undergoing fetal surgery to correct Spina bifida. Michael Clancy talks about how his photograph, called the Hand of Hope, changed him from a pro-choice photographer to a pro-life Christian and speaker whose photo has already saved babies from abortion.

"What began as a regular assignment turned into a life changing event when i captured the reaction of an unborn child to the touch of his surgeon during in utero surgery.  I've told my story at over 60 eventss in the past two years and will continue until the world knows the true story of the little boy that reached from the womb and changed the world."
