Heartbeat Heard on Image of Guadalupe?

From The Catholic Advocate:

Doctor Margaret Pasakas placed her stethoscope on the heart of the copy of the Missionary Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe at St. Joseph Hospital in Reading, Pennsylvania. To her utter astonishment she heard a human heartbeat and knelt down in tearful veneration. More than 200 people have felt the heartbeat of an unborn child in the Image. Dan Lynch, Guardian of the Image says, “It is a sign that life begins at conception and is not a 'choice' for the mother because God, the Author of Life, has already chosen the child for life.”
