Unborn babies “sing and dance” to music, proving that “learning begins in the womb”
By Dave Andrusko October 8,2015
How much drier can the headline to a study in the journal “Ultrasound“ be? “Fetal facial expression in response to intravaginal music emission”
But then, having glanced at the study, you zip back toThe Inquisitr story that alerted you to its existence and what do you see (and hear)?
Unborn babies singing and dancing in response to music piped into their mother’s womb. Alright, technically, the 3D images taken at the Institut Marqués in Barcelona, Spain, show that the babies have “responded to the music by moving their mouths and their tongues as if they wanted to speak or sing,” according to the study’s authors.
But watching the video it’s hard not to conclude these kids are moving to the groovin’ (as us oldster used to say).
Reporting for The Inquisitr, Anne Sewell explains that the scientists had concluded from previous research that the auditory system in a unborn baby “does not start working until at least the 26th week of pregnancy. By testing using the new system, however, they have discovered that the fetuses can hear from week 16 and using the new system, the sound reaches them effectively and distortion-free.”
The “new system” is called a Babypod and is inserted directly into the mother’s womb. The advantage over playing the music externally is that while “reportedly a fetus can hear his or her mother talking, hear her heartbeat and even the sound of her heels clicking as she walks on the floor…, those sounds are only heard as a murmur, distorted by the stomach wall,” Sewell reports.
In addition to potentially providing the baby with an early musical education, “Our study suggests that music induces a response that activates brain circuits, stimulating language and communication,” a statement on the institute’s website says. “
“It proves that learning begins in the womb.”
The results of the study will also help to improve ultrasound scans, due to the movement of the fetus brought on by hearing the music in the womb. It also helps the fetus respond to the sound of music with movements of vocalization – a prelude to singing and speaking.

The Cost of Abortion & Contraception Deception click below:
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

CIA: The Rockefeller Foundation – Actively Undermining the Catholic Church click below:
We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.

Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
