Let me guess: Developing country, fear of modern medicine, and a calcified fetus?

Woo! So what do I win?

I have no idea why, but this made me think of Schrodinger's cat experiment.

"My Dumb Luck" Scrubs 07x09

A 19-year old girl came in with severe abdominal pain. I thought it was appendicitis. Turns out she was pregnant and didn't know it. It was ectopic, and she was bleeding internally. I should have checked for that. By the time I realized my mistake, it was too late. Sometimes I look at this old hospital and see the faces of all the patients I've lost... I do see them.

This kind of coddling is clearly Obama's fault.

Congratulations! You've got the body of a woman half your age!

....Growing inside your womb.

i wonder if they let her keep it afterwards so she could hang it on the wall?  Cmon, calcified baby ornament is totally the next big interior decoration fad.

Dear India,

Stop bathing in and drinking from corpse-infested water.

IANAL but I am pretty sure that abortion during the 117th trimester is illegal.
 
2014-08-21 07:55:36 AM
Reminds me of that 'In Living Color' sketch where Jim Carrey played that adult still living inside his mom with the umbilical cord still attached. Heh.

Rick Santorum approves of this message.

Man, imagine if she got pregnant while that was still in the womb. The new kid would look over and be like, "Holy shiat, I'm in a death trap!"

I cannot believe there are no cutting the umbilical cord jokes.

Well...that's a weird kinda ick.

This woman, while having a rather horrific condition, is still extremely lucky.   Most ectopic pregnancies kill or severely injure the woman due to hemorrhaging.  It's one of the conditions for which abortion is explicitly called for, even in the case of Catholic ethics.

"unborn baby that had been inside a woman for 38 years."  "
In 1978, 24-year-old Jyoti Kumar from central India became pregnant. "

umm,..  2014 - 1978 = 36 years, not 38.

Technically, the skeleton in that woman is Generation X.

Shah added that the woman, knowing that her baby had died and scared at the prospect of surgery, "went away to her village without undergoing the operation."

See, that's where you farked up.

TFA quotes MailOnline as a source.  Stopped reading.  I'm sure there's something in there that's true, there's just no telling what.
 
2014-08-21 04:27:23 PM
Couldn't get through most of the article, because my browser (or probably the company firewall proxy) was acting up....
