The Telegraph reports today of an Indian family who have a two year old girl Lakshmi who was born with four arms and four legs. To be precise, she has a 'parasitic' twin that has fused with her. The twin is headless and undeveloped.
The poor wee mite.
Despite her mother believing that Lakshimi is "a miracle, a reincarnation", she said "but she is my daughter and she cannot live a normal life like this."
Lakshimi will endure extensive surgery to enable her to live a normal life. Her surgeon expects it to be successful.
Now this is an example of reason winning over faith to protect human well being.
I wish them all well.
