"If you put a soother in one mouth, then they both stop crying," McKay said.

There will be a lot of hand-holding over the next few months as doctors, ethicists and the babies' families look at what kind of life these girls can hope to have.

"Is there a chance that these two babies could live a life conjoined?" Dr. Jeff Blackmer, executive director of the office of ethics for the Canadian Medical Association, asked rhetorically. "Or, given those facts, then sometimes people have to start making the decision: do we separate the conjoined twins and if we do what are the possible outcomes?"[/b]

I'm glad to hear they're doing well.

Deciding what to do would be such an incredibly hard decision!

Isn't it incredible? I'm so torn on what I think should be done, I'm anxious to follow this story and see the progress of these little miracles.[/b]
I think they will have to be seperated.. With all the twins being seperated, I wonder if there area new technologies to help with their risks/survival? I'm sure it will be done, just when?

Hmmm, debate?

Should I put it up?[/b]
Why not?
