Nadya Suleman had six kids. Through in vitro fertilization she had eight more.
She was already on welfare, but there are lots of families on welfare.
Fourteen kids - a lot for one family, but there are hundreds of thousands of kids conceived every year by parents who are already on public assistance. We used to have an employee at our prototype shop who fathered four before he left High School, then spawned another six shortly afterwards. (He was a fellow ex-Mississippian, BTW. An extremely fertile one.)
Why has there been such an outrage over Octomom?
