A baby's birth is the culmination of nature's most complex, mysterious, and seemingly miraculous process. Renowned Swedish photographer Lennart Nilsson presents the incredible voyage of a new life with his stunning look at the microscopic world of the human body. Magnification of up to half a million times actual size shows just what happens at the moment of conception, and how a single new cell forms first an embryo, then a fetus.

A Real Eye-Opener

By Thankful this film exists

from Dayton, Ohhio

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Miracle of Life DVD:

I saw this program years ago and it completely changed my perspective and attitude on a very important topic - when human life begins. Until that time, I didn't know enough to question the rationale of so-called pro-choice advocates who tried to justify abortion with discussions about "viable mass" and "survivability outside the womb" and such. It all sounded reasonable and acceptable until I saw this film. The information it contains shows without a doubt that from the time the egg splits, the resulting entity is a unique human being and only a human being - nothing more and nothing less; and, logically, any action that destroys this entity destroys a living human being, no matter at what point the destruction occurs. The photography is breathtaking in its completeness and detail and takes the viewer through every step of human reproduction from before the initial male/female attraction to the celebration of the newborn's entrance into the outside world. It's also easy to see that a close study of the developing fetus, as shown in this film, could lead the open-minded to significant questions and conclusions on the subject of evolution as well. This is not about religion as much as it is about scientific discovery and logic for those who care about the truth and who value human life.

Most amazing!

By Doc

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Miracle of Life DVD:

This video was one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen. I was actually watching the reproductive process from fertilization until birth. To know that the reproductive process is complex is one thing, but to actually view the entire process is another thing entirely. Though not addressed in the video, this video helped to inform my views on abortion and stem cell research.

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS NOVA: The Miracle of Life DVD:

This is a spectacular view of a process through which we all experience in our early life. It is only after we become mature that our minds have developed sufficiently to begin to comprehend the events that were the beginning of our journy to become human and part of socieity at large. This is a DVD that you will want to retuen to again and again.
