Quote
A woman in India has given birth to conjoined twin girls – who appear to have two heads and one shared body, the Independent reported.

The infants were born via cesarean section at Cygnus J.K. Hindu Hospital in Sonipat, Haryana.  They suffer from dicephalic parapagus, meaning they have separate spinal cords, necks and heads, but they share all major limbs and vital organs.  Conjoined twins with this condition typically cannot be separated.

According to the Independent, the babies’ parents could not afford an ultrasound, which would have picked up on their condition in utero.

I've always heard two heads are better than one. :thud:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

That's not a "two-headed baby."  It's two babies sharing one body.

I hope someone in India has a lot of capacity to love, because even single born baby girls are tossed away in that culture.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Wonder if they'll go classical and call them Janus, or more hip and call them Zaphod.

This is so sad. What a hard life these babies will have.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if they end up in the Ganges.

Some still do that kind of thing to baby girls in India.

They - or at least their parents - will end up rather well off.

Freak shows are still big in India.
