  4. I get that separating conjoined twins is complicated, but a cleft palate surgery is routine and straight forward. Why didn't they fix the kid's palate when he was still a baby, and save him so much trouble feeding and learning to talk?

  5. It is so fair, you know, when science and technology achievements of humanity are used to cure, unlike, for example, nuclear bomb or weapons
