Mother Has Litter Of 8 Children

Isn’t that just precious? Another mother trying to get her own TV show on Lifetime (Or whatever channel does all of the “big brood” shows). Although they have not announced it, bet your bottom dollar that this was a fertility drug induced “miracle”. So, before you go all “Praise the Lord” on me, you need to be praising Merck, GlaxoSmithKline or whoever came up with the drug. There is nothing about this that is remotely “natural”.

Dr. Richard Paulson, director of the fertility program at the USC, says that the litter could suffer serious health issues such as neurological damage and breathing issues. He goes on to say that having 8 children at once is very risky and would not recommend it under any circumstances.

But, as we all know, none of this is about the children…it is about the parents. They want what they want and to hell with the implications and risks. Yet another selfish couple that show absolutely no restraint. If you have read my previous posts on this type of subject, you will know that I am sick of this type of behavior.

Of course I hope that the children are healthy. I also hope that the parents are able to financially and emotionally support the 8 kids. Not because I care about the parents, because I don’t. But I do care about the kids who had no say in this matter.

And I have a question. Who exactly is paying for the 46 hospital staff and 4 delivery rooms that were used to accomplish this miracle of science? I am sure it is some nameless, faceless insurance company. Said another way, you and I will pay. Insurance companies never take a loss on such things. We will also foot the bill for the minimum 2 month stay that each child will have in the hospital.

And how many wannabe mothers are going to hear this story and hope that they too can have an instant Quiverfull? Between celebrity babies, TV shows with large broods and now this, women are probably dropping eggs at a record pace. “Ooh…I want one too!!!”

This leads me to a bigger overall point. Ladies, a baby is not a pet or something that you are owed. It is a privilege. For once in your life, consider the needs of the child first. What would be best for him or her? Are you ready to commit everything you have to protect the interests of that child? Is there a financial and emotional support system in place to take care of this child?

Every day, committed parents have children and all is right with the world. On the same day, some babies are being dumped into a trash can or cooked in a microwave because the “plan”, that never really existed, collapses. Do the right thing. The movie Juno was funny…but not really.

    I really admire the women who can give babies up for adoption, it takes a tremendous amount of courage and self sacrifice and provides a tremendous gift unselfishly to unfortunate parents who yearn for the joy children can bring.

    I agree that beyond a certain number of children, regardless of financial capacity, I don’t see how a quality of emotional capacity would be possible. Though at the same time there are parents with few children doing a terrible job in this respect, so I am only speaking in ideals.

    Also I liked the use of the term “quiverfull”.

      Michael – Haven’t you heard? The “Quiverfull” is all the rage. It is a religious quest to populate the world with more Christians. It is odd because I heard an interview with a Palestinian woman who said the same thing. She said that they were trying to have as many babies as possible to fight future wars and outnumber the enemy. Isn’t that precious?

      Imagine that. Having babies just to build your own personal army in the name of God. Really, you couldn’t make this crap up.

    Wow! I hadn’t heard of that, I was hoping just to rely on guile…

    I thought it interesting that the babies were born in the same hospital (different location) as the nutjob that lost his job and killed his family (and himself of course).

    Nature has a way of replenishing itself….

    • tannerleah says:

      Really? Isn’t that interesting? Funny how they left that bit out of the news release.

      And where have you been sd? I was starting to worry about you. (Not enough to call or anything…but still).

    8 children at one time is absolutely not natural! True indeed that a faceless insurance company probably paid for the whole thing and that the insurance company will be not be losing money. Of course neither will the insurance company lose money on the more than 4000 abortions done daily. The same faceless insurance company will pay for the mental drugs needed to help the woman victims who suffer depression as a result of their murder. Those woman who abort also have much higher rates of AIDS, cancer and other disease which are being paid for by those who play insurance games. Women who wait to have babies until after 35 have much higher breast and uterine cancer which insurance pays for too. On the otherhand women having babies naturally and often are usually in excellent heath. Concerning wars and babies – true indeed that Muslims are reproducing with their religious agendas of wars. Do not worry about “Christians” doing the same. In America we are “waiting” and killing off our young before they ever have a chance to breath. Why do you think Obama got elected? Because minorities are populating while Caucasions are “waiting” not for the babies sake but we as a society have become so totally absorbed with ourselves. We also suscribe to the ridiculous notion that we need great amounts of money to raise stable children.

      Anon – You covered a ton of ground in your response but I must say, for the most part, I think you hit the nail on the head. I agree that our greed and selfish motives drive a great deal of today’s problems.

    PEOPLE PLEASE ! STOP BEING SO DARN MEAN. OFFER HELP INSTEAD. IF I COULD AFFORD TO FLY TO HER HOME, I’D VOLUNTEER TO HELP WITH THE CHILDREN. THEY ARE HERE NOW AND THEY ARE HERS. SO LET US THANK GOD THEY ARE ALL WELL AND DO SOMETHING TO HELP HER WITH THEM. IF I AM FORWARDED A MAILING ADDRESS, I’LL SEND WHAT I CAN TOWARDS THEIR WELL BEING. IT’S ONLY MONEY FOLKS. IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD SO LET’S TRY TO HELP HER INSTEAD OF CASTING ILL THOUGHTS. OH AND JUST FOR THE RECORD, THERE ARE MANY WHITE FAMILIES IN AMERICA WITH MORE THAN 14 CHILDREN ! LET US EMBRACE THIS FAMILY WITH LOVE SUPPORT AND FINANCES.

    • tannerleah says:

      PJ – I don’t think any of us have a problem with the children. It is their nut wing mother that is the issue. I have seen enough of her to realize that there are very few scenarios where these kids come out ok. She is collecting them like pets and it is pitiful. Hell, send me a couple of them and I will raise them (ok, not really).
