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:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

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.
