Some of these I've never even heard of!

Birth defects are unfortunate. Many children and adults with them can lead somewhat normal and productive lives. However, children are cruel and adults gawk at that which is different and unusual. Some birth defects are so severe that the child doesn’t last through birth.

Birth defects can range from minor to extreme. Once relegated to sideshows for people to pay to stare, those afflicted with them have become more accepted by society as actual people with feelings.

Every four and a half minutes, a baby is born with a birth defect in the United States. That means nearly 120,000 babies are affected by birth defects each year, according to the CDC.
