Octuplet Mom Needs Help

Thanks to my mom for finding this article. As it turns out, the mother of the octuplets needs some major psychiatric help. (And apparently, so does her doctor.) I honestly can't believe it. Here's the article: CLICK ME

All I can think is how she is making the rest of us look bad. Good $#@!%%! For the love of !@(**&^!

Those poor children.

I read that article yesterday in the newspaper. I just hope those kids are taken care of well. I find it hard to believe that they will since there's 14 of them now.

Oh Elana, did you read the statement that the mother was studying to become a counsellor herself!

What the ####! How is she going to feed, clothe and educate 14 children of which atleast one is special? Why God Why?

"Angela Suleman told reporters Friday that doctors implanted far fewer than eight embryos, but they multiplied. Experts said this could be possible since Nadya Suleman's system has likely been hyperstimulated for years with fertilization treatments and drugs."

First off - we all know how "IMPLANTED" is the wrong term.

I know how ICSI can increase the aspect of identical twins due to the needle hole used to inject the sperm weakens the egg wall, making it more likely for it to split, but why would experts say it was more likely because of "Suleman's system has likely been hyperstimulated for years with fertilization treatments and drugs"? That's got nothing to do with the embryos splitting.

So many inaccuracies. So many.

I have tried hard not to read about her or anything because it takes me out of my happy place.

I know, this just infuriates me. Just when I thought insurance companies might see the sense in covering IVF because it causes far fewer multiple births and complications, and then this happens. Also, what does this mean:
"She told me that all of her kids were through in vitro, and I said 'Gosh, how can you afford that and go to school at the same time?'" she added. "And she said it's because she got paid for it."
Sign me up...I didn't know you could get paid to do IVF!! Give me a break.

Oh, and if she didn't want to destroy her frozen embryos how about donating them to another couple?
