12 Babies? Did we learn nothing from Octomom Nadya Suleman

The Sun reported this week that a teacher in Tunisia is pregnant with 6 boys and 6 girls and she has vowed to carry them all to term. Did we learn nothing from the tragedy that is Octomom Nadya Suleman?

Those babies will be lucky if they make it 30 weeks — and survive. Even if they all survive, most likely some if not all of those babies will have multiple health problems that may last a lifetime. While fertility treatments of some kind were used, at this point no one knows if in vitro fertilization (IVF) or artificial insemination (IUI) was the procedure used.

As in the case of Nadya Suleman, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the doctor involved. He or she is the one controlling the treatment; however, it is unlikely that he or she will ever have to take any responsibility, either financial or emotional, for the outcome.

What say you?

    Don’t worry ladies, supposedly this story is false. The woman isn’t even really pregnant. They say she lied and is obviouly having mental issues…

    why is it these woman have so many babies at once when there are some many woman who can’t even have one child. If she can afford to care for 12 babies at once then great but look at the future all of us who can’t have babies will be paying for these multiple births in the long run. Obviously these woman don’t care about the well-being of these children or long term effect, just the fame and time on tv, people writing about them and and everyone knowing who they are, do they really need that much attention that their willing to risk the lifes of the 12 miracles that didn’t ask for all this attention. They don’t get a say in whom they are born to, they have no idea what’s instore for them and really the mom’s don’t care they just want all eyes on them and lets be honest the papers and tv episodes are feeding right in to it. just wait the next mom is going to up this one and when these babies suffer who’s gonna take the blame. when is the public gonna stop feeding their craving. good for them if thats what they want, but if they can’t afford to take care of them why do they get to sit home and get it all handed to them but a single mom with 2 kids get hers taken away because she is down with this economy struggle too? whats the limit gonna be?
