The New York Times Magazine recently did a piece on Nadya Suleman to tie in with the upcoming British documentary Octo-Mom: Me & My Fourteen Kids. Suleman explains that this type of media coverage of her family is the only way she can support them:
"I made these choices out of the midst of being in survivor mode. I think 99 percent of people would have made the same decision."
Yes, but you willfully had FOURTEEN children when you knew you couldn't afford them. Nadya however doesn't see it that way:
"You don't understand. If you have these frozen embryos that are there, and they were writing you letters saying, We are charging you this much, and it's going up and up and up every month that they are stored — you can either use them or destroy them. You're like, O.K., I have six already. What's another? And maybe it won't even work. So, I just decided to take the chance because I didn't want to destroy the embryos. That was the main focus — not like: 'Oh, gosh! I really want eight!' People were thinking, 'Oh, she wanted so, so many.' No!"
But there was always the CHANCE you could have eight and you did!
Also…what's ANOTHER? It's SEVEN children instead of SIX! You just sound stoopid!
Now you have to subject the world to view your socially irresponsible decision firsthand so you can support them?
CRAZY like smart thinking to us!
