How come you don't see Siamese twins anymore? Aren't they being born these days?

Joseph Thomas Jacob

Dear JTJ,

Of course they're still being born. But they're being divided. Some are joined at the top of the head, or the abdomen, the chest, and they often share organs or limbs. Most of them are born dead or they die shortly afterward. These days, the doctors always opt for trying to save one of them. You might want to check your pals for telltale scars. At one time there may have been two.
