OCTUPLETS MOM SHOULD BE ASHAMED
Saturday, January 31, 2009
OUTRAGE OF THE WEEK
We all thought it was remarkable when we heard a California woman had eight babies earlier this week. She wanted to remain anonymous and now we know why.
Turns out, Nadya Suleman already had six kids. Now, she has a grand total of 14. Oh yeah, she is 33 years old, single and lives with her mother. I'll take, "recipe for disaster," for $200, Alex.
Suleman's mother is speaking out in disapproval. She says her daughter has been obsessed about having kids since she was a teenager. Clearly.
The octuplets were born well in advance and are expected to be in the hospital for a month. Since it was a high-risk pregnancy and they were born premature, the babies will likely have an uphill battle. They could have serious medical issues. So glad that Suleman and her crack team of doctors thought this over.
The question is: who are these doctors who allowed her to have in-vitro fertilization. She already had six kids. Why is there a need to have more? These doctors should be held accountable. Take away their rights to practice medicine.
When Suleman finally brings her army of children back home, how is she going to support them? Oh, that's right, us taxpayers will probably take care of that.
This story is every bit as sad as it is shocking. These kids aren't even going to have a fighting chance because of the situation they're in. And to think, there are so many loving couples who try over and over and over again with fertility drugs and still can't have a baby.
Nadya Suleman, shame on you.
