    Re: Octuplet's mom on food stamps, publicist says

    How does one pay for fertility treatments "on their own" if they are unemployed and their only source of income seems to be government assistance? Or does her husband work, and they keep seperate bank accounts for earned money, and stolen money?

    1) Using it to get her own place for the kids,
    2) Using it for school for her children,
    3) Using it to get off of public assistance, or
    4) Using it to get special treatment for her disabled kids

    Instead used it to have 8 more kids.
    Her welfare eligibility and rights to her children need to be evaluated then. She obviously is not fiscally or mentally responsible enough to care for 14 children.

    If people choose to get money from the government, and thus the tax payers, then their spending of that money should be restricted and monitored.

    It's ridiculous that people living in a $600k+ house and driving a $50k new car are able to pay for anything with a welfare check.

    From what I read, she was injured at work and has been out on worker's comp for the past several years, during which time she had her first six kids. This past year, the state finally sued her, alleging that she was not truly disabled. The state won, forcing her to go back to work. A few months later, she got pregnant with these 8 kids.

    And there's no husband.

    I heard on the radio this morning that the dad wants to get married but she said no because she wants to raise the children as an independent single mother.

    I'll try to find a link..hopefully it's not on TMZ.com.

    Jesus Christ...people like this almost make me want to say we need some kind of ****ing test for the ability to have kids or a limit on amount of children based off pay scale or some ****ing thing.

    (almost)

    The father of all 14 kids is a sperm donor who she said was just a friend. the guy she was married to didn't father any of the kids.

    Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't be surprised if the sperm donor was thinking about marrying her now.

    Who is the luckiest man walking on the face of the Earth? Her ex-husband who got out before she had 14 kids.
