Give Me a Break! Seriously?

I am sure everyone has heard about the mom who recently gave birth to 8 babies. If you haven't, you must live beneath a rock. While giving birth is probably the most joyous things on earth, you have to wonder about this mother. Sorry if I offend anyone, but this is my site and I have a right to vent. So no hate mail please. ;-) First of all, this is a single mom. Don't get me wrong, I admire single moms. However, most single moms are not not doing it alone by choice just circumstance. This woman is unemployed, has 6 children already, living with her parents, and was artificially inseminated! Seriously. I saw a snippet of her mother's interview. Grandma is upset with her and exhausted from helping her raise her 6 other grandchildren. Here is what I wonder. Who paid for this procedure? The woman is on government assistance, lives with her parents, has no job, and "supporting" 6 kids already? This is simply amazing - and I don't mean in a good way. There are so many couples who would give their right arm to have one baby! I just don't get this! I feel so bad for the precious, innocent babies. Every baby deserves better than this.

Here Here!!! I told the DH that this was a scam from the start. I think the doctor and the mom (I use both terms loosly) are in on it together to get a big pay day! I wonder how much these news media outlets have paid for her interviews? I think of people like my bloggy friend Yaya or Megan at Inferitle Myrtle who are trying so hard to have a baby and this woman choose to endanger her children by inplanting so many embrios it's just beyond belief!

Okay I'm done ranting (for now), I'm stopping by to welcome you to my minions.. um I mean followers.. So Welcome to The Nuggets of Wisdom, you seem like my kind of people!

Oh, I thought she was going to sell off her litter on craigslist.

Join my support group: No More Puppy Mills!

Her veterinarian should be put down.

People should spay and neuter their pets.

The whole thing was so wrong.

I swear I was going to post something about this on Overly Opinionated because this is insane!

Whomever decided that it was a good idea to impregnate her with all of those embryos needs not be a doctor (if he was ever one if the first place...and i have a hard time believing that a "real" doctor would do this) it makes my head spin to think about the life that these kids will have...it's not fair to the ones she had before and it's damn sure not fair to the 8 little innocent babies she just brought into the world!

She needs Dr. Phil...or Oprah...hell she needs both and a whole lot more!

UGH ... it makes me sick the rest of us are barely making it. Some of even working 2 jobs and here is someone who could careless and look now she'll get probably taken care of! It just makes me sick! Someone else that "needs" a bailout ... yeah right! Ok stepping down!

Just passing through. Great blog!

~The cost of raising 14 children through age 17 ranges from $1.3 million to $2.7 million, I suppose she figures tax payers will foot the bill.
