An Australian mother of seven has given birth to a rare set of conjoined twins who have two faces, two brains, and share one body. Despite doctors advice to terminate the pregnancy, Renee Young and partner Simon Howie, proud parents of the Aussie fighters, Faith and Hope, welcomed the girls last Thursday after Young went into labor six weeks early via emergency C-section.
The girls were born with the rare condition diprosopus, where the embryo fails to completely split and twins share one body. The two girls are now in stable condition and breathing without any assistance.

There’s a freeper that believes these sorts of things and babies’ illnesses are a result of the parents sins. I would like to hear from him about this.
We had a calf born a couple of years ago with 2 faces on one body. It was dead when we found it soon after birth, may have been born dead or died soon after.
Very sad for this family in Australia.

Prayers to the family. The mom did something Liberals would hate, She kept the girls.
