Smallest survivor of heart surgery

A child, named Jerrick De Leon, born 13 weeks premature recently became the world's smallest infant to survive heart surgery. The surgery was done when Jerrick was a week old and weighed around 24 ounces (two cans of pop).

It's amazing how some doctors can operate on a heart "the size of a grape" to save the life of a child while others can use different tools to kill unborn children who are the same size as Jerrick.
