    but remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

    Wow! Very interesting!

    I had to look this one up and found that the official term for it is "superfetation".


    • Superfecundation and superfetation are rare and obscure phenomena with no clear clinical significance but with legal and moral-social meanings. These obstetric rarities are known since the times of the ancient Greeks. There are several physiological explanations that account for superfecundation but not for superfetation, yet, both have been described. In this era of assisted reproductive techniques it is reasonable to assume that the prevalence of superfecundation increases, which may also apply to superfetation. Today, there are several reliable diagnostic techniques to verify heteropaternity in multifetal pregnancies, hence superfecundation. Nevertheless, our knowledge regarding these amazing phenomena remains limited due to both ethical and medico-legal barriers that prevent their implementation.
