First off, you didn't hyperlink the page so clicking will do nothing. Secondly, I can only think this was posted for the shock value more than for the story behind the images. If not, explaining what someone is about to view would have been a better approach as the pictures are graphic in nature.

The story is about Samuel. At the time of these photos, he is still in utero and 21 weeks into the pregnancy. He is undergoing surgery (while in utero) for spinal bifida - a condition where the spinal vertebrae have not developed completely and the spinal cord is not protected. It was once known as an "open spine". The first image is very graphic. It is a touching story and so is the image but be prepared for a photo of a surgical procedure. During the procedure, Samuel grasps the surgeon's finger. This is not lunchtime viewing material for several members.

I felt a "heads-up" was only fair.

It was little bit scary for me. :(
