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

    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.

    Are you asking this question...seriously?

    What the f@$% do we expect given we just elected Obama and handed Congress to the Democrats? Do you believe that these voters are asking themselves why the public should be paying for these services after they just spent an entire presidential campaign promising to pay for such welfare and health services?

    Seriously, screw your head back on. This is the direction we're going in...and the American voter seems abasolutely content with it.

    This has nothing to do with Obama, thanks.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot we live in a world where we can unilaterally define things to mean what we want them to mean.





    That's just fantastic. So, in addition to the $1.5 - $3 million that the public will be paying for these kids to be born, we're also on the hook for food stamps and SSI for the original three. And given that half of the first six were disabled, what do you think the odds are that a bunch of the next eight are as well?

    At this point, I truly am praying that she gets corporate sponsorships, because the rest of us should not be paying for this ****.
    I completely agree. She got about 2% of what that other welfare mother, who was the CEO of Countrywide Mortgage, got. Shame on her. Shame on him too.

    Seriously, you are bringing your hyperpartisan whining into this?

    Of course it's Obama's fault. I'm sure he donated the sperm.

    The fertility doctor who was so irresponsible as to implant these into her should be paying ALL of these bills. The taxpayer shouldn't have to foot one red cent for any of this.
