Yahll have to check this out, I don't know if this is real or not...but...
That don't even look real. It looks more like a mask on a doll.
lol!! It do look fake.. Why did they put this on their news?
Anencephaly - born without a skull
Otocephaly - ears displaced under chin
it is this combo of these diseases that creates this babies look.
Neither disease it that unusual, although most babies die in the womb.
Used to be people went to 'Freak Shows' to marvel at the sights now one just has to cruise youtube. smh.
****, that's weird but nonetheless he's "God's child" and that makes him beautiful.
Several years ago I assisted in the research of Anencephaly in rural hospitals in Southern Africa. If anything, I felt for the mothers who had no idea that their baby suffers from this condition until birth. I imagine this would apply to most countries as in the West babies are aborted, often at the first sign of any 'abnormality' - easily picked up by blood tests, scans etc. which are not readily avaiable to the majority. The video above isnt showing us something 'new', but with the advent of the internet it is new to 'some' who have been previously unexposed.
peoples misfortunes are being exploited for some temporary sensationalism - if they got a penny for every 'ooh' and 'aah', these places could have the medication and equipment to significantly reduce these personal tragedies. If they got a penny for every tear shed in compassion, they wouldnt be able to buy a lollipop.
Do The Babies Live
very long? I think the exploitation and the sci-fi music are insult to injury. I had never heard of this, what happens to most of these babies?
Now I understand why the doctors here perform neural tube tests during pregnancy. This is very severe malformation.
Maybe some of that Sorority money could go to buying ultrasound equipment that measures the neural folds/ tube. This is very tragic since it seems that the disease would be caught very early in the pregnancy, and there might be a link to folic acid deficiency - which means it's entirely preventable.
I didn't know it was like that, I've never seen something like this. At first when I looked I thought it was fake. But I think this was first shown on the news in some country.
No, about 97% die in the womb, most that survive live only a few hours.
That was a news clip from southern Europe, Turkey.
1 of every 1000 (recorded) pregnancies in the euro world (USA, EU, AU) suffer this condition. It is detected as early as the 10th week, thus aborted.
This particular case was of interest because of the rarity of the combination of 'defects'.
