Q&A: Octuplet birth raises questions

Wow, I have no idea what to make of this. Comments? There is also the two families with a bazillion kids who have their own reality shows. At what point does something like this become "excessive fertility"?

From USA today:
Initial reports about a California woman who delivered octuplets last week evoked wonderment over the fact that all seemed to be doing well.

But as more details about the woman dribbled out, wonderment turned into disbelief for many. The Associated Press has reported that the mother is a single 33-year-old named Nadya Suleman who already had six children at home, and that all 14 of her children were conceived via in vitro fertilization, or IVF.

Putting my personal opinions about large families aside (which is that it's really none of my business how many kids anyone chooses to have), what scares me about this situation are the fact that any fertility physician would implant so many embryos and that no one seemed to be cautioning this woman about her plan. Although she and her family are all saying everything's fine, it seems like the collision of a bad decision and downright malpractice to me.

I think in France they only let you do 2 at a time (?) Even twin births put you in the high risk category. I'm patiently waiting to hear what fertility clinic ok'd this.

I'm also not clear on why she needed IVF at all and not insemination, but who knows.

Thanks for commenting!
