Octuplets' Grandma: Daughter, Already Mother of 6, Had 8 Embryos Implanted Last Year.


While the now-famous California octuplets (http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Parenting/story?id=6739651&page=1) cry from time to time in their hospital beds, a host of medical and ethical experts are raising questions over the extraordinary births.



The octuplets' grandmother Angela Suleman told The Los Angeles Times (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-octuplets30-2009jan30,0,5460225.story) that her daughter had a fertility treatment last year in which the eight embryos were implanted, touching off a firestorm over the extreme treatment and its implications both for the mother and the children "Anyone who transfers eight embryos should be arrested for malpractice," University of Pennsylvania bioethicist Arthur Caplan told ABC News.

This puts a strain on the taxpayer. She lives at home with her parents and has 14 kids. 14! It's pure insanity.

I've heard from friends in LA that this woman is going for 25. Not a joke.

While thats true in most cases, overpopuation is a problem, a major one. 14 kids by an unemployed women might be the most retarded thing I've ever heard of....

Take away her kids and give her the choice of jail or having her tubes tied. We castrate men who are dangerous to children, but she is harming children and society. The fact that she wants 11 more children makes one suspect she could be mentally ill.

I don't understand this. We allow a womans right to "kill" her babies, and now that this woman has a whole bunch of them, we want to stop her from having more.

Kinda hypocritical dontcha think?

My only question is if she can care for all those babies? I have one, and a wife that takes care of her most of the time(due to my odd working hours), and even that gets rough sometimes. She should be watched carefully, and those kids should be put in capable hands at the first sign of negligence.

I think we've already seen the first sign of negligence.

USA. Court ordered castration or offers of castration are often used against pedophiles and other abusers of children, why should female abusers be any different? Because they're women? Abuse is abuse and it doesn't matter what gender the perp is.

She should be sterilized.

She should be evaluated and treated. And any Doctor who helps her get pregnant again should also be evaluated and treated.

I'd definitely check her out mentally. It sounds to me like she may have some sort of a condition, and may not be all the way there. As such, they could rule her incompetent to make any more decisions regarding her future.

I don't know if its that she isn't all the way there, but thats certainly a possibility. She may just have some sort of attachment issue with kids. 50 bucks says there is some sort of sexual abuse history with her when she was a kid....

I heard somewhere she got over 165K in disablity...

Too disabled to work but not too disabled to conceive and carry eight babies? This is so wrong on so many levels, I donít even have the strength to talk about it. :crazy:

Nadya Suleman's octuplets are thriving, but anger is growing about how much it will cost to care for them. Taxpayers could have to pay for some of her hospital costs, which could run up to $1 million.

"We're doing a bailout and I think it's just outrageous," said Sherrie Rodriguez.
