Posted on 01/30/2009 1:13:03 PM PST by Zakeet
Reports are circulating that cast an unflattering light on the miracle mom who gave birth to octuplets in California Monday.
CBS News reported Friday that the mother of eight newborns, who already had six children, filed for bankruptcy and abandoned her home less than two years ago. She hasn't been identified publicly yet, though CBS News described her as a woman in her 30s who lives with her parents.
Britain's Sun newspaper reported that the mother works in a fertility clinic. The grandmother said she had multiple embryos implanted last year and declined to abort any of them.

Who cares. She has nothing to do with anything.
Err, there’s a pretty good chance you and me and the rest of the country are going to end up supporting those 14 kids.
There is also the issue of the doctor or hospital that administered the fertility drugs when the woman already had six children.
There are many other questions as well. This is a legit news story.
Yahoo was running a story today along the lines of “scientists say human body is not designed for a ‘litter’ of children.
I wonder what kind of report about what the body is not designed for will be run during Gay Pride week? (sarcasm)
I think it said the woman’s father returned to Iraq.
“children’s father took off for Iraq “to earn money for his growing family.”
Probably went back to get another wife, for another 14 kids!
Always use the right tool for the job.
There are virtually no reliable facts coming out about this. It is apparently the grandfather, not the father, who is planning to work as a contractor in Iraq (per all reports except a summary line in the heading of one Fox article, the text of which was unclear as to whose husband was reportedly planning to work in Iraq). Only a few sources are repeating the claim that he is a native of Iraq. At least one source quotes him talking to a reporter in fluent-sounding English (at least as it comes across in print) and identifying himself as “Ed” — not exactly a typical Iraqi name.
We really don’t know much of anything about this woman or her family situation. Even reports that she is single seem to be based only on a random neighbor or two saying they’ve never seen her with anyone who looked like a husband or boyfriend. Maybe her husband/boyfriend/whatever is working in Iraq, either with our armed services or as a contractor. That’s as likely an explanation for the lack of a visible husband/father, as “she’s single”. It’s a little hard to picture a single woman undertaking any kind of fertility treatments to add to an existing brood of 6.
There’s got to be a LOT more to this story than we’re hearing.
Not the children’s father, the woman’s father.
That would be the babies grandfather is returning to his native Iraq.
And this story quotes a report from a British paper that the woman worked in a fertility clinic. This clinic has some questions to answer.
There is a definite anti-life slant at play in this article.
Or fled, upon learning that his brood of 6 was about to become 14. But most reports are saying that it’s the grandfather who is going to work in Iraq.
OK.....I almost spit diet coke all over my monitor.....lol!!!
Who knows? Perhaps the real story is that she was stealing fertility drugs from the clinic, and using them without the clinic's knowledge.
Ann Coulter should send the mother an autographed copy of “Guilty.”
Why is this woman having embryos implanted when she already has six children she cannot afford to raise? Why is a doctor agreeing to do it? This makes no sense.
***Also in the article: Unmarried 33 year old Iraqi — children’s father took off for Iraq “to earn money for his growing family.”***
Rewrite - this is what I read:
*****CBS News reported that the woman’s father is Iraqi and is heading back to his native country to earn money for the growing family.*****
Of course,the FOX caption asked: “Happy Home or BABY FACTORY?”
I was expecting to read that this female employee and the fertility clinic were producing babies for sale to women whose fertility treatment was unsuccessful.
