A 19-year-old female referenced as Haley insisted on the Dr. Phil show Thursday that her pregnancy is a miraculous one because she believes Jesus himself is in her womb. Although six medical tests revealed the teen is not pregnant, Haley believes her growing tummy is a sign of the growing divine child in her. She says the medical test results are all false, and claims her 22-pound weight gain in the past year is proof of her pregnancy.
Haley even claims she has felt the child kick, move and punch in her stomach.
To prove to everyone she is pregnant, Haley asked the Dr. Phil show to administer an ultrasound. When Haley learns the results and sees the image showing there is no baby in her abdomen, she responds stating, "I am pregnant. I'm not going to deny my baby ... I feel him kick all the time."
Dr. Travis Stork, ER physician and host of the Emmy Award-winning show The Doctors, who revealed the ultrasound results to Haley, explained what she may be feeling when she says she feels the baby kicking.
"The one thing the ultrasound stenographer noticed when she was putting the probe on your belly, you have dilated loops of bowel," Dr. Stork said. "What that means is there is some air in your intestines, and when she was moving the probe, those little loops move around. When you have felt down there and you have felt something moving, that was just your bowel moving."
"I'm sorry, Dr. Stork, but you can't lie to Jesus," Haley said. "You can stick me with all the Depo shots that you want to, but he is not going to die. And you can stick that little ultrasound [expletive]."
Other tests suggest the teen is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Her own mother expressed her disgust over her daughter's statements, and called her a "compulsive liar" and "delusional." Hailey also claimed she donated one of her kidneys to her older brother, and that her father is famous hip-hop artist Eminem.
This Dr. Phil segment has attracted more than 2,400 from Facebook users, some of whom are validating it as a "false or hysterical pregnancy," while others are asking why the teenager was given the attention she obviously is craving. Others recommended the teen be checked for conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. Yet others stated they wondered if it was all a ploy to boost the show's ratings.
As for Haley, she is adamant she will hold on to her child. She is aware her church, family and community do not believe her. But she truly believes that when she gives birth, everyone will accept her child as the savior.
