The Scourge of Motherhood

Have you surfed Yahoo! lately and noticed the furor over Nadya Suleman, the mom who recently  gave birth to octuplets? At first glance you may think what the big deal is all about. Giving birth to octuplets do happen, and it’s no  sin as  to punish the mother who harbored eight babies in her womb. Think again. If you bothered to open the links and read the news in its entirety, you can be really flabbergasted. Like I was. And millions of Americans were.

She already has 6 kids ranging in ages from 2 to 7 years old. Proficient baby maker this woman is all right. Word that the 33-year-old single, unemployed mother is receiving public assistance to care for the 14 children she conceived through in vitro fertilization has stoked furor among many people. She says that having many children is a result of the loneliness she felt as an only child. Yeah right, tell that to your children when they grow up hungry and poor. And to add insult to injury, she refuses to marry the father of her children, saying she wants to care for all the children herself. And she doesn’t even have a house. She’s a squatter in her parents’ house. Poor kids.

Suleman has been supporting her six other children with $490 a month in food stamps and receives Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters that could total $2,379 a month.

She has estimated her in vitro fertilization procedures have cost $100,000.

Suleman has said she saved for the treatments by working double shifts and also used money from a disability award exceeding $165,000 that she received after an on-the-job back injury.

The benefits were discontinued last year.

The Suleman octuplets’ medical costs have not been disclosed, but in 2006, the average cost for a premature baby‘s hospital stay in California was $164,273, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Eight times that equals $1.3 million.

For a single mother, the cost of raising 14 children through age 17 ranges from $1.3 million to $2.7 million, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

And if you’re wondering who gets to pay for the octuplets, here’s what the most recent Yahoo! article has to say: Taxpayers may wind up shouldering most of the burden of raising Nadya Suleman’s kids. So the taxpayers are forced to pay the $1.3 million to $2.7 million since the irresponsible mom is unemployed.

No wonder the authorities are currently protecting her since she received lots of death threats.

I’d threaten her too for taking my well-earned money to pay for her babies while she sits around doing nothing. She even made a site thanking everyone for their “support” and then proceeds to ask for more money and donations. Someone please kill her for me.

And then the last straw:

Nadya Suleman, the mother of those eight tiny in vitro-created babies, is waiting for the right price for her interview. And yes, we’re talking millions.

The mother of 14 kids is asking for $2 million for her octuplets story.

Oh, and she would also like a TV career as a child-care expert.

This woman is the epitome of greed. She is now hiding from the general public for fear of being lynched. I hope someone manages to maim, shoot, disable, injure (I am really evil now) this fool so her hapless children can grow up without having such a stupid mother. I bet that a year from now she’ll give birth to even more babies, and promptly let the taxpayers do the honors of paying the bill.
