Conjoined twins die after one month

It wasn't long ago that I wrote about the conjoined twins born to a UK couple who caused a stir for choosing to keep their babies un-ironically named Hope and Faith, in spite of the fact that they were only given a 20% chance to live:


Well, there are lots of people saying I told you so because tragically, the babies have died one month after being born, unable to survive separation surgery.

"When Hope was in the operating theatre and we got rushed down to see them and they were trying to keep her alive, I just thought it was time for her to go because it wasn't fair on her.

"Her lungs weren't big enough to take the oxygen in so everybody had done what they could.

"With Faith, she had been through so much in four weeks, we just didn't expect her little body to go through that. The time we spent with her was the most precious to all of us."

The parents say they don't regret their decision to have the babies. Would you?
