Medical → Abigail and Brittany Hensel... dicephalic conjoined twins
Meet Abigail and Brittany Hensel, dicephalic conjoined twins. Their spines are fused at their waistline, and they share three lungs, two hearts, and two stomachs. Each controls one leg and one arm - so the fact that they can walk, run, and play volleyball without trouble probably qualifies as a minor medical miracle.

Abigail "Abby" Loraine Hensel and Brittany "Britty" Lee Hensel (born 7 March 1990, Carver County, Minnesota, United States), are dicephalic conjoined twins. They have two spines which join at the pelvis. They have two stomachs, four lungs (two partially conjoined pairs), and two arms. (A third, underdeveloped and unusable arm between their heads was amputated in infancy.)
When the twins were born, their parents chose not to have them separated. As they share many bodily functions, the operation would have been risky and left them in wheelchairs. They do not regret their decision; the twins have themselves stated that they don't wish to be separated.
Thank you for visiting CharonBoat.com! Take time to appreciate life!
|of course these two are nightmares - they should have been drowned at birth - it is always bad to allow monsters of the species to exist - it frigs up the genetic chain - don't be so squeamish - use what you can for organ transplants and put the rest on the compost heap - c'mon, you know it makes sense - and for those that wanna cry and howl at humanity I say to you Get A Friggin Grip You Wuss.|
|What wonderful human beings.|
Most of the negative comments below make me hate humanity all the more. I hope these two have long, prosperous lives.
|they arent freaks, they are beautiful young women|
|God never creates freaks, because He is incapable of mistakes and miscalculations.|
It is only Man that creates "freaks" out of God's creations, partly out of ignorance and partly out of perversion.
|this is fcuking WEIRD - Weird I tell ya.|
Anyone who thinks otherwise is pretty crocked too.
