A schoolgirl in the Philippines is currently living in dilemma as an extra arm reported to be her ‘twin’ is growing out of her chest and abdomen, but will soon undergo surgery to have it removed.

According to The Irish Mirror, Veronica Cominguez, 14, has lived with the undeveloped twin for her entire life. When she and the twin were in utero, their mother, Flora Cominguez, even had names for both of them. .

Unfortunately, the twin didn’t fully develop. And because the family lacked access to medical care, the twin was essentially absorbed into Veronica’s body.

Veronica was born with the twin’s foot, arm, and leg protruding from her own abdomen. As Veronica has grown, so has the twin; Veronica says she even trims its nails.

Unfortunately, the twin – besides being unsightly – has led to other problems for the young lady. “It’s heavy, it limits my movement. It keeps swinging. My dress often gets wet.”

In fact, the twin causes secretions to leak out of Veronica’s navel. Oftentimes it looks like blood. Her mother says that the goo that seeps out often smells like human waste.

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of her neighbors, who raised money for an operation, Veronica will soon be flown to neighboring Thailand, according to a government spokesperson.

Don't mind me.

an "Incomplete siamese twins" seems a little tautological

Once a set of twins is not separated, ie joined, they are incomplete.

This I'm seeing looks like fetus in fetu.

WHAT KIND OF UNJUST GOD BLESSES SOME WITH HEALTH AND CROWNS MANY MORE WITH ILLNESSES?

WHAT KIND OF UNJUST GOD CONTINUALLY FAVOURS THE RICH WHILE THE POOR KEEPS GETTING POORER, DIE FROM HUNGER AND CURABLE DISEASES BECAUSE THEY CAN'T AFFORD TREATMENT LIKE THE RICH?

WHAT KIND OF GOD BLESSES UNGODLY DEVELOPED NATIONS, BUT CONTINUES TO NEGLECT PRAYERFUL POOR AFRICA?

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE AND WORSHIP THAT KIND OF GOD.
