The twin who refused to die

Though the doctor tried his best to make it happen. A woman who was pregnant with twin boys was advised to terminate one of the babies because he was underweight and his heart was enlarged. The doctors believed he would die in the womb and that would threaten the life of the other baby. The doctors tried to cut the umbilical cord but it was too thick, so they separated the babies and were shocked to discover a heart beat the next day. The baby probably thrived because of the separation. I hope the doctors remember this the next time they advise a mom to terminate her pregnancy.

Go check out the picture of the babies, they are so cute!
