What is WRONG with people??? Single mother of 6 has octuplets and lives with her parents..... BIG. SIGH.


Ok, this is completely absurd.
Apparently a 33-year old single mother of SIX, who lives with her parents and declared bankruptcy last year, just gave birth to EIGHT more. Octuplets. Yup.

So now guess who will be paying for their upkeep for the next 18 years? Uh-huh. You and me.

There's something wrong with a person who takes fertility treatments when she already has 6 kids and can't support them! And the doctors are not blameless either here! They should have refused to do this! It's outrageously irresponsible. They implanted 8 embryos by IVF. That alone is considered dangerous. Knowing the number of children this woman already has, and her financial situation, I hope these doctors have a moment or two of difficulty sleeping at night. This is really unethical in my book. How well can these kids possibly be brought up in that kind of situation?
Who wants to bet E! or TLC or Bravo will swoop in with a reality show deal for them? Sure, let's reward the irresponsbility! They'll be on air within a couple of months.

And here I am, worried about the cost of day care for one child. I guess I'll manage.
