Some woman in the USA has given birth to octuplets. That's 8 babies, if anyone wasn't sure. And apparently they are all doing fine.
However, this 33 year old single woman already has 6 other children under 7 years old. All via IVF and all from the same sperm donor. So we know the father's a wanker if nothing else.
Now, with our ludicrous benefits system I could understand the motivation here, but I don't think it works quite like that in the States. Apparently her 60 year old father is going to have to go back to Iraq to try and help pay for everything. Nice safe place, but it'll save him changing nappies.
Who on earth approved more infertility treatment for a lone parent of six children, and then shoved 8 fertilised embryos into her? Hardly a safe procedure for mother or babies, look at the stupid cow who lost them all over here the other year or five ago.
And from my sprog giving birth to twins, I know that it is not going to be easy from here on in either.
