Default two headed baby

What if the same thing happened to you? If it were me, God forbid,
there'd be no cameras in the nursery, that's for sure. It's not a
freak show.

I have been horrified that this is all over the news -- exactly like a
freak show

what can parents be thinking of to expose their child to this --

Well, if the same thing happened to me, I'd feel sad that my baby had to
go through surgery, but glad that it wasn't worse, I guess. That sure is a
disturbing image conjured up by the last line of the story. I'm sure I'd
still take pictures of my child, though!!

The parents got medical treatment for their child, and it looks like the
publicity just sort of happened.

pictures of a two headed baby can only be released by a hospital if the
parents agree to it --- it doesn't 'just sort of happen'

full names....

They say that they will use a bone from another part of her body to close
off her skull. I wonder why they don't use the skull from the head they're
taking off. It looks like it should have bone, at least from the photo.

I don't know what I'd really do in her parents' shoes. I do know I didn't
immediately feel a bond with DS when he was born. I hear that's normal. If
my child had two heads, it might freak me out too much and take me much
longer to develop a bond. The second head moving its mouth while I was
nursing would really bother me.

USA's site has a photo:

http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/...ion-usat_x.htm

To me this is an issue of the medical profession publicizing a rare and
difficult medical procedure, to which the parents agreed since they are
getting the treatment for their child for free.
