WOH with 14 kids?

Fri, 02-06-2009 - 5:11pm

Octuplet mother of 14 kids under the age of 8 is planning on financially caring for her children without any welfare assistance.

What kinds of challenges do you all think she will face? Do you think it's possible to be semi-famous in this way and even land a job in the first place?

<Just like a dr. can not MAKE you go on birth control, he can't MAKE you not get IVF if that is what you want.>

But who is HE to judge that she should not have anymore children?


exactly.


he's a FERTILITY doctor,his business is making babies...it would be like telling a plastic surgeon to turn away a patient he thinks really doesn't need a face lift.

I know a dr. can refuse a tubal under a certain age, I think it is 25 but didn't know they could do so because THEY think the situation is wrong. I guess they could but there is always someone out there that will take the money and do the procedure.

And it is MONEY. That is why they do it, to make money, especially in this economy.

Um, if you aren't going to a doctor to well....ask for his judgement, than why go to a doctor?

If this dr. did not do it for her, another one might have anyway.
