Has everybody seen this new story?
In case the link doesn’t work:
A baby was born with a “parasitic” cojoined twin, manifested as an extra head. The extra head (they’re joined at the top of their heads) never developed a body below the collar bone or so. This head “blinks and smiles” (like Terry Schiavo, I guess) and is “incapable of life on its own” (again, like Terry Schiavo.)
Anyway, at this point, the surgery to separate them/remove extra head has been successful.
While the article did say that the head smiles and blinks, no other details were given… did they parents name it (her?)
Isn’t this a person? Is it OK to separate them, even if it means certain death for one?
I’m very weirded out and disturbed by this!
