no, not really.
I am guessing that they are limited to how much they can eat? Or do they have two stomachs?
I am guessing they would only need the nitrients required for one person not two? Or would they need a little more than that needed for one?
TomSFox, you`re not understanding the perspective through which I am speaking. At the time period when an abortion is considered optional (obviously we cannot choose to abort them now), we wouldn`t have any knowledge of what they are like now. Therefore, their personalities (or the way they turned out) bear no effect on the decision to abort them. Do you understand that?
What you`re describing is murder, not abortion.
C`mon, who`s with me?You`re all discussing about the "Eww!" but not about the abortion thing?Talking about it, I didn`t think they are "Eww!"And I don`t see, what`s "sad" about that, kmuggee!I think they`re great, and they are cheery!I would love to meet them!And I had another thought: In cinemas they would have to pay for only one seat!
That would be one HELL of a BJ!
Dont lie you were ALL thinking it!!
Not trying to be mean honestly Im just thinking of the possibilities here..... I mean its like damn thats more attention than any normal girl could give a guy.
Sure, but it`s not human nature if one must seek to justify such reactions, or oneself attributes such reactions to human nature, because that implies some ulterior motive. Capisce?
Finding something that`s `not common` weird or revolting, is in fact very much human nature.
But I wonder how they`re built in the skeletal way; ribcases? spines? And about the 2 heads, 2 breasts: they have only one reproductive system, so that means only 2 breasts.
Because the parents would be equipped with the knowledge that their children share a body, a great adversity to overcome, and not with the knowledge of their personalities, coping strategies, and so forth. Not knowing how they would turn out, I would abort them as well. I`m glad they turned out well, but if it were me, given the limited information, I would have sought an abortion.
"But I`m going to say it, because you were all thinking it, and I`m not ashamed. It`s human nature. Ahem, `eww!`"
It`s not human nature if you seek to justify your reaction by claiming it`s human nature.
No, actually, I wasn`t thinking that, and I doubt many other people were, either. It`s only your self-centered view of the world that makes you think it`s "human nature" to react that way, and it takes a special kind of narrow-minded bigotry to react to anything strange and different with "eww!"
Well, maybe they would feel the same way about you!
In school, each holds a pen and works separately. They are treated as two people.
Also, since they share so many areas of the body (mainly the lower half) that if one dies, I`m quite certain the other would die too.
yeah, i wondered that too. i saw them taking a picture of themselves, hah.
Being born different doesn`t mean you should be killed off. Have a heart people. If you were conjoined to someone or had some kind of "freak of nature" birth, would you want to be killed for it?
Actually, LKJSlain, you are being mean. As one of the girls said several years ago, "I don`t have two heads!"
It`s one body with two heads. Not each girl has two heads... just one shared body.
Britty and Abby are very cute and inspirational 16 year olds. There are two vids of them on youtube about them currently and information about their condition is on wikipedia.
You`ve really got to admire how well they`ve handled what life has given them.
You do page 1+2, I do page 3+4 :O
What about discussing answers?
Lots of questions XD
I really admire them.
not normal at all.
Of course, that`s one positive point amongst a world of negative factors. I respect them, and if I were conjoined, I would honestly not be able to get that far.
"add us as a freind, as long as you dont look creppy, we will add you."
I`m sure many people here would find this highly ironic. Hmm...there`s this too:
"I hate it when people take pictures of me and my sister, me and Brittany arent that diffrent from everyone eles."
Yeah, because everyone has two heads.
Not that I don`t like them or anything, I just find these statements kinda funny. They`re coping really well with it though, considering just how awkward that must be.
(And if one were gay and the other straight, it`d be hell for them.)

It would somehow be cool to have a twin on your side, one could study, the other can copy off of the tests!Wish I had friends cool like that.
but i mean u gotta give it to them. they seem to be living life to the fullest and best, their making the best out of what could have been a really awqaurd situation.
but to answer gummywurmz question
theyv been doin it all their life, i doubt either one of them has a problem with goin to the loo together
No, each has their own brain and their own heart.It was in a newspaper last week. They have a brain each, two hearts, four kidneys two sets of lungs conjoined, one stomach, two arms, 1 vagina, two legs.
Marriage?Bodily Control?Death? (Excusing things like cardiovascular shock. If one goes braindead, will the other?)Thoughts and feelings? Can they literally know what the other is thinking? Lets say that one twins brain emits(sp?) a certain chemical, dopomine or whatnot. Will both feel the affects?
Still, this is pretty amazing how they have lead a normal life. Its going to be hard finding a husband for them. xD
