    So yesterday I was flipping channels and see octo-lady on Dr.Phil, like the lat 10 minutes. It said it was a 2 day deal with more today....yeah, I stooped and watched it.

    This lady is fucking nuts. Her mother knows she's fucking nuts. The world knows that she is fucking nuts.

    Now the hospital is refusing to release the kids to her until she meets some guidelines for their care...of course one being the facilities to house them all.

    Maybe I'm crass, but this chick is living in a fantasy world, hell, she even admitted it...I wish everyone would keep their money in their pockets or donate it to someone who is not a fruit loop and these kids be adopted into normal homes.

    I've tried to stay away from this story because I knew it would piss me off....to late.

    You haven't heard about the chick that had 6 kids, living on government assistance with her mom and got invitro (SP?) and gave birth to 8 more kids? Where the hell have you been :th_lol_hitting: She's plastered herself all over the media for weeks!

    yeah.. she pisses the hell outta me... she didn't want to destroy the eggs because she felt that she would be killing babies...... :th_black_and_white: :th_blue_wtf: :th_black_and_white: I read somewhere that the state of California is footing the bill for the hospital care for the babies..

    I'm with you, BUC.

    I have purposefully NOT watched this stupid bitch, due to the fact that I would get pissed. What I would like to know is, who's going to hold the dumb-fuck doctor that did the procedure, accountable? There are so many things wrong with this story, on SO many levels.

    Those poor babies. As much as I hate to see mothers and babies separated, they need to be taken away from her and placed for adoption, to loving couples who would thank the Lord for just 1 healthy child. Not a selfish, self-serving, look-at-what-I-did skanky bitch. She's not thinking about the kids AT ALL!!! Only what SHE can get out of it. She doesn't deserve ANY of them.

    I wonder how she paid for the in-vitro fertilization and implantation if she's already on state aid? If the state paid then something major is wrong with the system.

    At first I thought you were talking about the Rodge Moore-James Bond movie......no such luck.....

    That doctor should be disbarred, or at least sanctioned....and the mom should undergo a psychiatric evaluation....and that is MY medical opinion...........another case of American Excess to the Extreme..........I can barely handle my one child.........and yes, my BIL came from a family of 11 children, but the these 11 kids were over 22 YEARS.....so the older ones helped care for the younger ones........yep-2 doctors, 4 RNs, 3 nuns, and one priest, along with my BIL-the house husband......

    Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar would be a good home for those babies ...heck, they already have 18 children and are self-sufficient without government aid....just let them have the 8 to save her womb from having any more kids.

    See I have a lot of problems with all the controversy over this.

    I think it is stupid that she did it. But the day I agree that someone besides me should decide what I am going to birth is the day you might as well shoot me. Blaming the doc is ridiculous. There is no law against it. There are not even clear ethical standards-there should be, but evidently there is not a universal agreement among docs who specialize in this--I asked two different ones about it and they agreed on that point.

    I may have my info wrong, but I have read these things about it. She paid for the in-vitros herself from a worker comp settlement. She had many many procedures, and never had this kind of result. The most she ever had was 2 at a time--the others were single births. Her dad said on Oprah that she previously had 5 embryos implanted on two separate occasions and got nothing for it.so there really was not a reason for her to think this was going to happen.

    Since she had to write a check for the in-vitro, and it is not a procedure that many po-folks get to do, how would the doc have known of her personal circumstances?

    And of course, California is paying for the babies. I bet most of you do not know that almost every single state picks up the tab for premature babies needs, and it is not usually based on financial need of the parents. This is no different than if you or I had a premature baby, the state would likely pick up the tab--

    This is a stupid situation, she is obviously crazy---but it should not really be all that controversial. After all, do we believe in a woman's right to procreate or do we not?

    If we are going to start requiring people to prove they are worthy to have children, I can find a lot worse cases than this chic to deal with.

    and bottom line--what now? 14 kids are here. And even the harshest of us cannot blame them for what happened, can we?

    I have no problems with these people for the most part. Sure I don't agree with everything they are doing but that's life. They do it on their own.

    She's had 2 psych evaluations.

    CNN did a deal the other night that I only listened to out of the corner of my ear but it was about how all these fertilization clinics are breaking standards to get the best numbers so they get more business.

    It's truly sick.

    If you can afford it great.

    She used up that settlement money ages ago. She's single, lives with her mom and could not afford to even have one more child, let alone 8, so why even hope to have one more? The clinic did know her financial situation. Her mother went to the clinic and begged them not to keep doing this. From what I've read since she had frozen eggs, state aid was footing the bill for these procedures. She was also using school loans to finance this fiasco, straight from her mouth today. She said several times how immature she was.

    The 6 kids are already killing her mother.

    She said if she didn't use all her eggs it would be like murdering them and she'd never even consider releasing them for someone else to use (again straight from her mouth).

    I certainly don't blame the kids -- after all, you don't get to pick who your parents are -- but damn this is some crazy ass shit. If what BUC said is correct, and the state did pick up the tab for the fertilization, well, I've got a problem with that. I don't think the state should pick up the tab to fertilize a woman who already has kids that she recieves state aid for. Heck, here in IL a woman on state aid who gives birth gets a statement from them stating they'll pick up the tab for a tube tieing procedure. Her choice if she gets it or not, but they'll pick up the tab.

    I fell sorry for her parents, but they too are making a decision. They dont HAVE to help her. They are not obligated to do anything. They are CHOOSING to. If it is killing them, they can stop it

    Maybe if she had to raise her own children, she would not have wanted more. What do I know?

    She lied to her mom about having the procedure done. She didn't even tell her she was preggo. With the last kid she told her mom she had a tumor. Her mom does refuse to watch the kids at times (Phil interviewed her too). She said her daughter and the kids need OUT of her house. While you're right, she could throw them on the street, I did admire her for not playing the victim along with her daughter. She is clearly not happy with her at all.

    I could be wrong, but I heard on Dr. Phil about 1-2 weeks ago, she was pregnant every year with the first 5 births, last birth providing her with twins.
    She's also mentioned on an interview that the father/ sperm donor of these new 8 babies is the same father of the other 6, and she hopes he'll now particapate in helping raise the children.

    edit in: I have been interested in hearing more about her >:D Kind of like watching a soap opera...what's going to come out in the open next? :mad:

    Someone tell me why she went to look at a million dollar home that is for sale? Why was Dr. Phil with her? Kind of a weird place to get an personal interview, imo.

    10 more minutes for another show with Dr. Phil

    I saw a little of the interview and he asked her if she thought she was addicted to being pregnant and she said she hates being pregnant. So WTF get pregnant consistently she needs alot of help(mental) and it is the children I feel sorry for since they are the ones who are going to suffer.

    Oh with the million dollar home bit -- I think she's figuring her litter birthing abilities will land her a tv show, or something like that and she'll live happily ever after. I heard in the news she's been offered a job in a porn movie, and they were going to pay her pretty well. ::)

    As for her parents kicking her out -- I could definitely see why they need to, but it would be hard doing that to the kids, especially with a mom like that.
    She's had serial pregnancies, but doesn't like being pregnant. She's had plastic surgery to do whatever to herself, but doesn't seem to be too interested in much self help beyond that; she's had all these kids, by one guy, who isn't around, and thinks having more would get him interested....I don't know if I'd want to see my grandkids out from under my charge if I had a kid like that.
