Baby in womb reacts to bright lights

Professor William Brennan recalls the following story about how a preborn baby reacts to bright lights:

“A dramatic example of how early the unborn baby responds to painful stimulus was revealed in the television special The Miracle Months, which features films of fetal development taken inside the womb. One particular sequence shows an unborn child of only 9 weeks gestation trying to shield himself from the camera lights by placing his hands over his eyes.”
