    Grandma: Octuplets mom obsessed with having kids

    Grandma: Octuplets mom obsessed with having kids - Yahoo! News

    LOS ANGELES – The woman who gave birth to octuplets this week conceived all 14 of her children through in vitro fertilization, is not married and has been obsessed with having children since she was a teenager, her mother said.

    "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."

    Others worried that she would be overwhelmed trying to raise so many children and would end up relying on public support.
    What the hell is wrong with some people. Seriously how the hell can you raise 14 children alone?

    This really sounds unethical to me. A doctor willing to do this for a woman who already has 6 children is disturbing.

    There is no doubt in my mind that this woman will eventually, if she already isn't, use government money to live her life.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    The most irritating part about this is that it pretty much guarantees another ****ing terrible reality tv show where she'll be talking about how Jesus really wanted her to **** out all these little critters.

    I can't wait to not watch it!

    The fawning over these stupid people is getting old. It is not a great thing to have an ass ton of children you can't realistically give individual attention to.

    I, on the other hand am curious as to how she or her family were able to afford the Fertility treatment, this type of treatment does not come cheap.

    With reference to the Government paying for these children, yes this is what will happen.
    However I somehow doubt that beyond the odd tut tut from anyone in the Obama administration, nothing much will happen.
    I also wonder if various advertisers will be beating a path to her door with various offers.

    I am not aware if this happened when 7 children were born in Houston a number of years ago?

    I think the article implied that she was paid for the fertility treatments.

    Its ridiculous that someone can have no real plan for success taking care of their children and she can pop them out like rabbits.

    I really doubt tv shows are going to want to put a single mother of 14 on TV. Especially the channel that broadcasts the more or less wholesome John & Kate +8.
