Octuplets’ mom seeks $2 million from media
An unemployed single mother, living with her parents, received in vitro fertilization and gave birth to octuplets last week.
The 33 year-old California woman, Nadya Suleman, already had 6 children.
How can a single woman with no job raise 14 children you ask? She is reportedly seeking $2 million from Oprah and various other media outlets.
So far she has been living off education grants and parental money. The family recently filed for bankruptcy, and her mother is concerned that Nadya may have an “obsession with children” according to the Times of London.
Nadya apparently broke up with her boyfriend before the birth of her first child seven years ago. The identity of her octuplets’ father is unknown.
Not only does the American Society for Reproductive Medicine frown upon implanting multiple embryos at a time, Nadya was actually advised to terminate some of the embryos to avoid health risks to herself and the babies.
What do you think about her decision, and the doctors who implanted multiple embryos in her?
