Embarazada obligada a abortar, se niega y da a luz a gemelas sanas

twin

Respeto la opinión de los médicos porque estudiaron arduamente su especialización y son expertos en el tema. Pero a veces los instintos de los pacientes, las ganas de vivir y la energía positiva son suficientes para anular cualquier concepto profesional. Cuando Carmelle Hartgrove descubrió que estaba esperando gemelos, ella y su esposo estaban felices, pero desafortunadamente la felicidad fue corta. A las 10 semanas de gestación una ecografía reveló que los fetos eran mono-amnióticos y mono-coriales es decir, compartían la misma bolsa de fluído amniótico y placenta. Aunque los médicos recomendaron abortar uno para salvar al otro, Carmelle los ignoró y dio a luz a dos hermosas recién nacidas.

Illegal Immigrant "Barbie" is the most offensive toy ever

Illegal

I'd like to think I have a good sense of humor about things, but I'm not amused by fools who like to poke fun of people who are often subjected to systemic discrimination. Comedy and humor website Points in Case recently published images on how they feel Barbie should be updated for the 21st century and one of them includes "Illegal Immigrant" Barbie. Can you believe this crap? It's disgusting how offensive this doll is--it's not funny AT ALL!

La  famosa periodista, Mara Schiavocampo del programa 'Good Morning America', ha querido compartir su historia con su numeroso y cautivo público.

10 Reasons we should ALL worry about the NAACP bombing

holding

I'm so pissed and disgusted at mainstream news media right now for letting down the entire nation with their lack of coverage of the NAACP bombing that happened in Colorado on January 6. I was online ALL DAY that day combing headlines, because that's what I do, and it wasn't until right before I went to bed and decided to look on Twitter that I found out. I saw the hashtag #NAACPBombing literally blowing up (I swear I'm not trying to be funny here, there is nothing funny about this at all), so I had to look into it.

mom

New Year's Eve was a somber day for this Utah family who made headlines back in September. Kathy Taylor, the woman who refused cancer treatment while pregnant with her sixth child, lost her battle with terminal cancer. The 34-year-old mother was diagnosed with melanoma six months into her pregnancy and did everything she could to make sure her unborn son was given a chance to live. It's so heartbreaking that baby Luke couldn't make it. He was born two weeks premature and passed away from an infection two weeks later on September 27. I don't know how this family is able to survive in the face of so much tragedy. Taylor's husband, Nathan, opened up about her death and his words will make you cry.

Baby born with three arms survives life-changing surgery

baby

Any surgery involving the removal of a limb is considered life-changing. However, few are as life-changing as the procedure performed on a baby boy who was born with three arms. Diamond worker Ramesh Makwana's infant son was born with his right arm where it ought to be, but two arms on the left side. Thoroughly shocked and sufficiently worried, Makwana and his wife decided to allow doctors to remove their son's extra limb. And it's a good thing they did! During a pre-op CT scan, doctors discovered the baby born with an extra limb was actually missing quite a few organs. Que the what?
