1. Her mother claims that ever since he was young she wanted many children and that she is happy to have them.
2. Legislators want to introduce laws to prevent this kind of thing. Seems like they want to get like China.
3. The grandfather is a contractor in Iraq and claims that they are financially able to take care of all the children although he did admit there would be challenges.
Good for her then. It's absolutely scary about the legislation. I know this lady is being heavily criticized for her decision of having these babies but people need to understand that even though it seems far fetched for some to believe, there are people who love large families. She seems to have two parents who love her and support her so I personally wish her all the best.
Here's the truth of the matter, she wants to be famous as a "child care expert" on TV:
|Octuplets" mother wants Oprah to turn her into a $2m TV star|
John Harlow, Los Angeles
THE single mother of octuplets born in California last week is seeking $2m (Â£1.37m) from media interviews and commercial sponsorship to help pay the cost of raising the children.
Nadya Suleman, 33, plans a career as a television childcare expert after it emerged last week that she already had six children before giving birth on Monday. She now has 14 below the age of eight.
Although still confined to an LA hospital bed, she intends to talk to two influential television hosts this week - media mogul Oprah Winfrey, and Diane Sawyer, who presents Good Morning America.
Her family has told agents she needs cash from deals such as nappy sponsorship - she will get through 250 a week in the next few months - and the agents will gauge public reaction to her story.
Her earning power, though, could be diminished by a growing ethical and medical controversy. Experts believe that the unnamed fertility specialists who gave her in vitro fertilisation (IVF) should not have implanted so many embryos, and in choosing to carry all eight to term, Suleman ignored guidelines, risking both their health and her own.

I read that the mother of these babies worked at some point in a fertility clinic. Her mother is not happy about what she describes as "an obsession" of having more and more children, she was not in agreement with the decision of doing in vitro after her daughter had 6 children. Who payed for the treatment then if she is unemployed?
She is also divorced and has a bachelor of science in child and adolescent development.
She is being called "Delusional" by some now. She is seeking to work on television as a child care specialist adviser and she has not even left hospital. She has already hired a publicist while in hospital. According to her publicist she has dozens of deals already set up for books, interviews, TV shows, etc. She is supposed to be the most sought after mother in the world, again according to the publicist. By the way, the doctor who performed the delivery said that neither he, nor the hospital where she had the babies performed the fertility treatments.
the more and more I hear about this woman the more I think she was not totaly sane. Why would she bring eight more kids to this world when she clearly can not support them. If she was looking to get married you can bet she threw that prospect away too.
I read also the mother told her she will leave because she does not want to help her with the kids (she was not in agreement with the fertility treatments). If she went through in-vitro probably did it at the same fertility clinic she worked for and may know someone who was willing to put 8 embryos on her since it is NOT, I repeat NOT a present procedure anymore. They put 2 maximum. Maybe she used a fertility drug? And even if she did, the chances of octuplets are extremely thin, most people get one baby and few twins.
Well this is where the ethics comes in for the law makers who want to be able to hold those who do the fertilization procedure accountable. Really, the only one truly accountable is the mother. This seems to be more about money than about being a mother.
