Doesn't This Hurt?

Originally, I had no interest in this story, but, as more details came out, I have to ask:

Does anybody else find it a tad creepy that a woman, who has already given birth to six children through in-vitro, just had another eight?

This woman is unmarried, and incapable of having children the "old fashioned" way. Now she has FOURTEEN children, via in-vitro, done by the same doctors.

How in the hell is this woman going to care for, nurture, educate and pay for these children. Her mother, Angela Suleman, who is currently taking care of her daughter's six children, has already said that she is through helping with raising the kids.

Good for her.

The daughter is nuts.

Maggie Mama:

Excuuuuuuuse me! But if she is unmarried, already has six, exactly what kind of doctor imbeds an additional "eggs" into said welfare candidate?


Seems to me that the whole friggin world is out of control and I just can't seem to understand the mindset of the people ruling my life. Or should I say "ruining" my life?

Damn Sam, life is sucking big time on my side of the street. I really seem to be out of step with the rest of the world.

She didn't have sextuplets. She had six other kids, ages 2-7, two of them twins. All of them conceived via IVF. Yes it's creepy.

Thanks for the correction.

Hard to keep track of all these kids!

Don't worry...all of us will take care of them...just like we do the rest of the lowlife on this planet. Let's spread the wealth!

"The daughter is nuts," as is her Momma and Papa (who's incidentally headed to Iraq as a contractor) as enablers of this.

Maybe she thinks she'll get a show on TLC. Having kids is a sport now. It can be very lucrative.

Medical malpractice indeed.... (Below threshold)

Medical malpractice indeed. We told everyone a long, long time ago that there would be severe negative societal impact from the "War on Poverty" and we were right. A married couple gives up the right to hundreds of thousands of dollars of aid that is available to unmarried women. We have allowed Nancy Pelosi's "Culture of Corruption" to corrupt the American people.

Hmm...and I thought raising two was challenging enough. If the movie Parenthood was right and a complicated life is just like riding a roller coaster, then this woman has serious thrill issues.

Mac Lorry:

As usual the sentiment is that there's got to be some man to blame this on. Some think it's the fertility doctor, some think it's the grandpa for being an enabler, and some say it's the sperm donor. However, when it comes to having kids the law is moot on who can have them and how many; relying on biology alone to set limits. Yes, she loves children, but that's not yet a crime.

The mother is well educated with a bachelor's degree in child development and she's working on her masters. Maybe she can get a deal writing a book and money for interviews. With money she can contact Al Gore and purchase absolution for her extravagant lifestyle of having 14 kids (what's the carbon offset for having a kid?) I wouldn't judge her too harshly just yet.

Simple answer, she's going to stick those of us who create wealth with the bill. Ditto the Doctors. Thanks suckers.

Bill OReilly featured this story on his show last week, including an interview with an ob-gyn, who raised questions about the ethics of the doctor who implanted the embryos. This woman and her 14 children live in a small home, and it's hard to see how anyone, even with the help of her parents, could adequately care for this many small children at one time. Most large families are acquired gradually, so the older children can help with the younger ones. I don't recall anything being reported on her economic status or how she financed the cost of fertility treatment, which is quite expensive, but like some other posters, i am concerned that her medical bills and the cost of raising her brood will be borne by the taxpayers.

Mac, I understand your will... (Below threshold)

Mac, I understand your willingness to withhold judgment on this woman, but....

As soon as I heard of this, I started looking for information so as not to be so judgmental myself. Nadya does have a bachelor's degree and did begin to work toward her master's, but stopped attending school last spring. She hasn't worked either. She's been living with her parents. I'd be interested too in knowing who is paying for her education, who is paying this enormous doctor and hospital bill and who is going to feed and care for 14 children from this day forward.

Now she's looking for quite the tidy sum to give interviews. Yet, it's been reiterated in several articles that she didn't do it for fame or riches.

Her body, her choice.... (Below threshold)
Baron Von Ottomatic:

Her body, her choice.

And thanks to creeping socialism we're all on the hook financially for her indiscretion.

Not to worry, I'm sure additional aid for single mothers who choose in-vitro pregnancy is buried in the so-called stimulus bill somewhere...

Baron Von Ottomatic <... (Below threshold)

Baron Von Ottomatic

Have to agree. Everything about this is creepy. However who would care if the specter of Public assistance were not involved. I worry soon there will be the China policy of x number of children and then force abortions. Her body, her eggs if we would allow people to live with the consequences of their decisions maybe they would make better ones.

The other thing that I do not like are doctors who are willing to make diagnose and offer comments on people with out even one real interview. There hacks and do more damage than good. Of course the press has to use them because if they did talk with her it would violate the ethics.

I hope her children grow up OK.

Baron, I agree with you almost all the time, but it may be her body, but the doctor had to do something to it. He is complicit. ww

We have reached six billion people doing it the old fashioned way. I'm not judging her for the number of kids. I'm the fourth of nine and we had a family in our neighborhood with 14. The method is another matter. I feel sorry for folks who can not conceive normally. However, that doesn't mean we need to do weird stuff to make babies.
