An unborn baby got pregnant while still inside the womb.
This unbelievable message was widely shared on internet, especially via social networking sites. It says that an unborn baby became pregnant while still inside the womb. As bizarre as it sounds, the story is not a fact.
The claim originated from an article on EmpireNews.net that was published on 23 June 2014 with the same title. According to the story, Mary Lambert is 8 months pregnant woman in Portland, Oregon, who was admitted to Silverstein Memorial Hospital with extreme stomach pains. It seems the doctors were shocked at what they discovered. Dr. Joseph Goldsmith, who is said to be a pediatric surgeon at Silverstein has supposedly said, “This is the first time that an unborn baby has become impregnated. It’s so far beyond rare that we didn’t know it was possible.”
The claims apart, our online search indicates there is no Silverstein Memorial Hospital in Portland. The truth of the matter can be understood from the disclaimer information of Empire News website; it is a satirical and entertainment platform that mostly uses invented names. Empire News publishes many fictional, hoax stories, like for example, the infamous killer in American prison system, Charles Manson was granted parole.
So, to say it again, do not believe in everything you read online, and check for authenticity before you start sharing something.
