Read the Wiki article (NSFW) before posting.

Well, this is it. This is probably the most fucked up, most depressing thing I have ever seen.

http://babyfaithhope.blogspot.com/

The videos are disturbing.

Faith is a baby. A baby who was born without a brain.

She's alive, but technically doesn't exist.

Faith simply looks like a baby. She has no thoughts, no emotions and no consciousness.

I have nothing more to say. This is just bizarre and sad.

Meet Faith: The brainless baby.

How can she be living when she doesn't have a brain?

Did I miss something in science?

Why keep a baby alive that is technically dead? SHE HAS NO BRAIN. It is the same as keeping you dead grandfather in your house, without the smell. Its not like one day, she will miraculously grow a brain and go on Oprah to talk about her life.

According to Wikipedia most of the brain is absent; not all.

When I first saw the title, I was inches away from cracking some joke about how she was named "Faith" and had no brain. Then I realized how horrifyingly inappropriate and mean-spirited such a joke would be and how much of an absolute douchebag I'd be if I actually told that joke. I feel like a dick for even thinking about that in the first place.

It's incredibly sad how the mother has managed to delude herself like this, sure it's a baby now but it will grow physicly but sadly not mentally as it has no brain
either it will die soon or become a tragic burden upon that woman

I don't think she's completely brainless. She's just missing the parts that let her think. She still has the brains that let her breath and stuff.

Dude when you're a father or a mother you just can't let it go, no matter her condition you would love her and want her to live, she isn't suffering because she basically can't suffer, she would never feel suffering, so a parent would just refuse to kill her and prefer to have sometime with her before she dies naturally.

This is horribly sad.

For those wondering, this is how she's still alive.

The brain stem is still intact, which means the baby can still breathe and twitch her arms, etc, but that's it.

I'm not very excited about human rights and what they deserve, but...

That is just a fucking cruel thing to do to a living human being, keeping them in that state.

"The baby's mother was apparently aware of her condition prior to her birth, but chose to carry the child to term because of "a firm Christian faith that all life should be protected".[2] She believed that God alone should decide how long the baby would live.[3] The hospital's viewpoint was that care provided to the baby would be futile.[4]"

Hahaha oh wow

I understand how hard it would be for a parent to let go and my above post was a little over-critical, but how long could a child like that live? I could be a week, a month, or years. For the Parents, just watching your shell of a child grow in a inescapable coma would be a horribly saddening experience.

HOAX!!!

Certain reflexive moves survive in the brain stem, such as blinking, vocalizing, breathing and swallowing. Kittens with anencephaly still cry, which makes some believe that they are suffering; but the ability to process pain and distress is one of the "Higher" functions of the brain, thank god.

But do not be too quick to right this child off. There's a little girl (I'll have to research her on google to get her name, current age and location) who survived without any brain; only the stem and cerebellum exist. She's keeping up well with other kids and is in normal classes; she just gets some special tutoring and physical therapy. Babies and children are extremely resilient; they can adapt with brain injuries and deformities that would turn an adult into Terry Shiavo.

Maternal instinct clouds your judgement it seems, this is the same case with Juliana Wetmore. I think deep down the parents of these unfortunate children know what they're doing is cruel and they use thier faith in God to justify thier selfish actions. But thats just my opinion

Well now I don't feel bad for the mother at all.

That's pretty sad, especially considering her mom knew about it prior to the birth but went through it anyways because of her religious values.

Oh well, the only thing to do now is to post offensive pictures relating to her misfortune.
