AS the octuplets born to a California woman turn one week old, the coos and praise that surrounded their successful delivery are giving way to cries of anger from fertility experts and the public.

To put this many embryos back in a woman who is so young and had proven fertility is completely irresponsible.''

"A number of commentators are saying a woman with six kids should not be allowed medical treatment to have additional ones, and I think, at a common sense level, that makes good sense,'' Mr Tipton said.

Six children - and eight implanted embryos.

Criminal foolishness.

Perhaps she was hoping for a "Family Job" like Jon and Kate + 8. Apparently she had that in mind. She needs all the help she can get, Jon and Kate didn't get any sleep for years. And the FATHER of these babies is????

I was reading a blog and the comments. Some of the folks were obviously unaware she already has/had SIX children.

One of the quotes: "Wow. My dog has had litters with less offspring.
Difference is, she was capable of taking care of them."

Said she plans on breastfeeding all eight of them when they are a bit older. That will be quite an accomplishment. No word about the Father, I Googled, nada.

Her mom said she was obsessed with having kids since she was a kid. She had best hope sponsors step in to help with the TONS of needs those kids will have. None of my tax dollar please. Perhaps some of the cost should go to the doctors who were so careless is practicing their 'craft'.....

She's already asking for a $2million book deal for "her story" ... I hope she won't be exploiting these kids for "movie rights" and "tv rights" etc.

Well it is obvious she is Blue. Was that her plan all along? Maybe they can travel with a circus and 'earn' their way. This is poor planning and already showing poor parenting skills. Someone suggest a cork for this woman. IMHO.
