The Octomom is all over the news, and true to form the right-wing nutjobs are all behind her. "The government paid for her in-vitro," they say. "Oh, the goverment will pay for anyone's. You don't need a job or anything."
Yeah, right. Anybody out there who's struggled to find a way to pay for in-vitro won't know whether to laugh or cry over that.
Octomom got 160K from worker's comp, which paid for her in-vitro AND all her plastic surgery. She showed up on awfulplasticsurgery.com, where her own family members offered the before and after shots. The woman is obsessed with Anglina Jolie, and has had her nose shaved and lips plumped to attempt to look like her.
Why all the babies? Well, the "religious" right would have you believe that she thinks like they do, that every fertilized egg has a soul, and she didn't want her "babies" thrown away. Bullshit. If she really thought that, she'd have made her babies the old-fashioned way, or gotten artificial insemination.
Now the important part: the babies, who didn't ask to be born to this lunatic. There is no earthly way one woman can even begin to parent fourteen children under the age of 8, eight of them babies, by herself. She wants a four-bedroom house, and to get a million dollars for an interview, and thinks everything will be just fine. Good God. My cousin had triplets, and they had to hire an au paire until the kids hit school. And that's with two homebody parents! These kids, in a best-case scenario, will have to be raised by a half a dozen nannies. That's not going to fit in a 4-bedroom house, and her million is going to dissolve fast - if she gets it at all - paying salaries of nannies and medical bills for her litter. One of the older ones already has major health problems. Just wait till they sort out the younger eight. I'll bet each of them will need his/her own specialist. Not to mention psycho-analysts.
