When it comes to the abortion debate one of the biggest heartbreakers is just the fact that abortion so frequently targets babies who are disabled. For example the percentage of babies who have Down syndrome who are destroyed in abortions is astonishingly high.
Abortions also happen when babies are found to have some sort of physical deformity by ultrasound scans prior to birth. Statistics on babies who have cleft palates and who are killed in abortions are equally upsetting.
That’s what makes the story about little Joseph Tidd so heartwarming. Read the story and enjoy the picture that just might be the best picture of the week:
One-year-old Joseph Tidd and Orlando Pride player Carson Pickett have a lot in common: They both love soccer. They’re both athletic. And they both have partially formed left arms, which they tapped together last month in a photo that’s flying across the Internet.

The arm bump happened when Pickett, 25, jogged over to Joseph’s family after hearing them cheer at a home game. She repeatedly tapped her arm against his as he shrieked with glee, said Joseph’s mother, Colleen Tidd, who scrambled to take pictures as her husband held Joseph, decked out in a purple Pride T-shirt.
“In those situations, I want to be in the moment,” Tidd said in an interview Tuesday about the photo that’s gotten a lot of attention. “But then I realized, ‘Well, this is adorable.’ ”
Joseph spent the whole car ride home from the stadium looking at his arm and giggling, Tidd said, because he knew he had a friend.
