What is a twin?

When we see a pair of twins, are we looking at a pair of womb twin survivors? This may be the case more often than not, but no one is interested in doing any research into this!

(The old story : "How can it possibly matter what happens so  early in life?" Well, we know better.)

Here are twins in the making.......

The two survivors of  a triplet pregnancy where one fetus dies will be always considered as twins, but they are in fact triplets.

And it doesn't take surgery to reduce a multiple pregnancy to twins, any more than to reduce a twin pregnancy to one sole survivor. It happens quite naturally, as we know. They call it "natural wastage".

Any pair of twins may be the pair that lived, but how many died?

We must take a closer look at twin pairs and notice how many were once part of a multiple set.

And speak out against so-called "pregnancy reduction" wherever we have the chance...
