This couple decide they want to have a child. They go forth and begin multiplying. She goes to the doctor and finds out she is pregnant with twins. They are overjoyed and thank God for blessing them with this miracle. All is well for a few months.
They go to the doctor and find that the twins are co-joined or Siamese twins. They are joined at the head. This news devastates the couple. The doctor talks to them about aborting the pregnancy. The doctor doesn't think the twins will ever have a normal life.
The couple is a Christian couple and doesn't believe in abortion. Like most people they don't believe in things until it happens to them. They hate abortion but they start weighing the pro's and the con's about co-joined twins. They start rationalizing why an abortion in this particular case would be ok. In the end it is a split decision. One thinks they should abort and one thinks they should deliver. I'll let you guess who wanted what.
They decided to deliver the babies against their doctors advice. She has a successful delivery and the babies are perfectly healthy and normal other than being connected at the head. The twins are absolutely beautiful. It looked as if God himself blessed these little girls with a beauty that was second to none. They were adorable!
The couple consults with several surgeons to see about separating the girls. Every surgeon they talk to tells them that there is a 100% guarantee that if they try to separate the girls, one of them will die. They go to Germany and consult with surgeons there. They all agree that one of the girls will die if they go through with the surgery. The only difference is they find a surgeon who will do the surgery. They ask if the surgery will be fatal for one of the girls and he says yes, but that doesn't bother him. He believes that it is worth it to sacrifice one of the girls to give the other one a normal life.
Should the couple have the surgery?
