A Christian couple in Cincinnati, US who already have five children have welcomed conjoined twins after refusing advice to abort.

Jason and Heather Kroeger welcomed their twin sons Isaac and Elijah in early September.

Doctors initially told them that they were expecting one child. However, subsequent scans in the first trimester revealed that they were two and that they were conjoined.

Doctors then advised them that it was possible to abort. However, the parents rejected this advice.

Jason said: "To us it wasn't an option. These children are our children; they were given to us for a purpose... to protect them. Abortion was never an option."
