I know all the information isn't out yet and I have been suspicious that so little information has been released and then only acknowledged when the media discovers it first.
So far, what I've heard is this new mother of octuplets is a single mom, with 6 other children ranging in ages from 2 to 7. She lives with her parents in a 3 bedroom home. She was taking fertility drugs and had invitro fertilization to get pregnant. Am I missing something here?
If you're a single parent and already have 6 kids, why would you want more? Obviously you've gotten pregnant successfully before, why would you need fertility drugs? If you can't afford to support your first 6 kids and that's why you live with your mom and dad, why would you try to get pregnant again?
If you can't afford to support your 6 kids, where did you get the money for the fertility drugs and the invitro fertilization? That last one is super expensive. Who is the doctor that enabled this woman to get pregnant with 8 more kids? Are there no ethics in the medical field?
Am I missing a part of this story? So much of it doesn't make sense and I can't believe nobody put the breaks on this months, if not years ago. Lastly, are these the actions of a sane mind? Should this woman be trusted to care for and raise 14 children? Who's going to pay for that? Who's already been paying for their support and the creation of these last 8?
