    Default Hard decision

    What would you do with conjoined twins? Would you separate them at a young age or would you let them grow up and make the decision on their own? I was watching the show Side Order of LIfe and the main focus of the story was about conjoined twin sisters in there 20's wanting to get the operation but being very scared that one of them would die. After thinking for awhile they decided to do it and one of them died. It was incredibly sad. So I thought about what I'd do as a parent and I can see why a parent would do either trying to separate them when they were young or letting them make the decision.

    What would you do?

    I'd have them pose for an album cover first, then have them separated.

    id sell em to a traveling sideshow.
    JUST KIDDING! i would try to have them separated at a young age so they can enjoy as normal of a life as possible. if they werent able to be separated due to shared organs, id still love em they way i would any other kid.

    Should be done soon after birth, like maybe two or three months afterwards. That way there's plenty of time to let bones and connective tissues to heal and/or grow in a healthy direction.

    You gotta cut them apart...unless you're thinking you can parlay that freakshow into personal celebrity and wealth. With all the cable channels now there are plenty of shows centering around just this sort of thing...who knows, a little youtube exposure and the next thing you know they could have their very own reality show.
