Baby Human Watch

April the Giraffe highlights a disconnect about 

which new lives we choose to save and celebrate

Life is beautiful, and no doubt we were all given a wonderful glimpse into God’s incredible creation as we watched April the Giraffe finally give birth via live stream from the Harpursville, New York, zoo. That much-anticipated event finally occurred on Easter weekend; a time when new beginnings and rebirth are most recognized by Christians around the globe. April’s labor actually broke online viewing records, according to YouTube. The story has also been in the media spotlight for months, and the birth on April 15 sparked even more coverage, as well as a number of baby-naming contests.
