Amazing Conjoined Twins

Last night I watched a program on TV about the strangest conjoined twins alive! it was about the 16 year old American twins, Abigail & Brittney Hensel, what is so amazing about these 2 girls is that they share one body with 2 heads and 2 different personalities, Abigail has control of one half of the body while Brittney controls the other half, inside their body they do share some organs, other organs are separate.
It was really incredible to watch them drive a car and even type an Email with both hands at the same time since each hand is controlled by a different brain, even walking, it is so amazing how they coordinate their movements.

The one hour documentary featured their parents who said separating them was never an issue as in their case separation surgery is probably impossible plus it would mean a life time of surgeries and pain and having to have half a body, instead, Abigail & Brittney lead an active, healthy and happy life. This brought memories to me of the poor Iranian twins that died during their separation surgery few years ago, Ladan & Laleh, May Allah bless their souls.


I have found a short video on YouTube about Abigail & Brittney, prepare to be amazed by these 2 very brave young women:

All I can say is Subhan Allah - سبحان الله

Thank you for sharing this with us. Sometimes you see or listen to something and really the only thing that you can say is Subhan Allah. How science and logic and everything that the people discovered is proven to be nothing in front of Allahs power, it is always a reminder - when life is getting fast and busy - i think, stop a while and remember why and how long do we live.

Thanks Anglo,
wow .. what video? Sub7ana allah
What struck me most is the fact that the 2 girls behave and feel nearly ‘normal’. Though the clip is short I didn’t see anything to indicate that they have a ‘problem’ … as a matter of fact they seem emotionally fitter and healthier than some people with 100 % physical health

A lot of work involved; preparation that may have started before their birth, parental support, money, science, research … you name it
And the nicest thing each girl has her own personality – as if they were completely separate, just like you and me … really wow

We see so much about conjoined twins these days. Abigail and Brittney are very special girls. Do you think that we hear so much about conjoined twin these days because there isn't a shame attached any more or is it because there are more and if so why?
I also wonder why we hear about more girls than boys. Chang Bunker and Eng Bunker (May 11, 1811–January 17, 1874) were men but besides them has anyone hear of other boys.

cofman said...

Thanks for the link, Chatalaine ( off-topic, and on reading: that’s why I don’t read fiction. The daily life of some ordinary people is full with incredible and unbelievable stuff ). The twin brothers Chatalaine spoke about got married and between them had 22 children.

Imagine living an entire life with someone else clinched to the back or the side!
How do they marry?
What if they are angry with each other?

There is a famous film about such twins. One of them kills her husband with a gun, and she is put in court where she is to receive the death sentence or prison for life for the felony. But how can they kill her or put her in prison as long as she is conjoined with her sister?

What do you think?
How should society deal with such a problem?

I´m probably a freak, but I really like to ponder on such questions.

thank you curious for this good message.

cofman, the documentary I watched about these girls was really amazing and shows them in a positive way which is as it should be. I am glad life's cycle is back and well now.

chatalaine, I think we see more about them becuase so many are having surgeries to seperate them and thats still makes headline news, I think the shame has gone thanks to documentaries like the one about Abigail & Brittney, people can now see that you can have a normal happy life even if you are somehow diffrent, TV & internet are changing people's views and that can only be good.

Safia I have heard of the film, now I want to watch it.
this problem you mentioned, I hope is rare within conjoined twins :o)
I do not know what to do?? you cant imprison one but not the other, trust you to come with something so complicated!!
I know that some get married and have kids although in this case both girls have one body, they were asked this quetion but their answer was that they are still young and are not yet thinking about htis issue.

Delete ya Anglo, the last comment doesn’t sound right, or relevant
I was in deep thought; comparing what the americans are doing in order to make the lives of the twin girls very ‘normal’, and what saudi arabia is doing in order to make the lives of its women abnormal

Subhanallah. It must be so difficult for such people lasgeen fee ba3dhum to live a normal life. For 2 people with totally different personalities to share one body is so weird. Who controls? I mean, they have two brains so which brain makes decisions??

I would hate it if someone was lasig feeya all the time.

AngloLibyan said...

no problem cofman :o)

lebeeya, you are back!! thank God :o)
yes its amazing how they control and coordinate their two brains.
