Move over, Apu. Nadya Suleman has supplanted you as the most notable parent of octuplets the nation has seen.
The Los Angeles woman/nutjob – already parent of six children – recently had in vitro fertilization so that she could give birth to eight more kids.
A woman like this – a single woman who’s set to raise 14 children ages 7 and younger alone – should have her tubes yanked out, and the doctors who green-lighted the fertilization should have their licenses revoked for the inadequate care the kids will receive (and inevitable therapy they’ll need).
What’s her punishment? Book deals and TV shows, according to an Associated Press report. Suleman’s spokeswoman (yes, she had to hire a rep) said Suleman is weighing her options, which allegedly are pouring in.
This 33-year-old woman is an abomination to everything that’s good about parenthood. Her obsession with being a mom made her put her selfish need for pregnancy above the practicality of raising 14 kids. (Remember how challenging things were in the Brady house? Double that and add two.) How will they receive adequate attention and space, not to mention there being money for the necessities of life?
And what person would reward such irresponsibility by paying Suleman to recant her idiotic tales? The entire situation is disgraceful. Receiving scientific fertility treatment is not an occurence worthy of an entire book, TV show or even Bazooka Joe comic.
Lady, you represent everything that’s wrong with the disappointing, celebrity-obsessed portion of this nation’s population.
