It seems to me that everyone here is missing the bigger picture.
she had 6 embryos implanted for each of her pregnancies. in this case, two of the embryos split, resulting in octuplets. twin pregnancies are considered high risk, let alone higher order multiple pregnancies. premature birth is a near certainty, and risks include disorders of virtually every bodily system.
she and her doctor deliberately put herself and her children at risk.
it seems sick to me that people are more concerned with whether or not a financially insecure woman has the right to bear children, than they are with the health of the children they do have.
