Just a heads up: There’s a decent chance that the following polémique petite will come across as narrow-minded and/or judgmental, but in my defense, that’s only because I’m passing judgment on someone I don’t know and whose side of the story I don’t care about.
Anyway, according to MSNBC, it has just been revealed that the woman who gave birth to octuplets the other day already has six other children.
Now let me point out that almost no one has multiple babies at the same time by accident. Twins? Sure, occasionally. Triplets? Rarely. But any more than that and there’s a 99.9% chance that fertility treatment was involved. And in case you didn’t know, IVF ain’t cheap. We’re talking in the thousands here, people. And yet here’s a lady who has squeezed out six smelly ankle biters already dropping mad Benjamins at the beginning of the worst recession in memory to have even more.
At this point, all you can say is: Really? REALLY?? This actually struck you as a good idea, spending who knows how much money to bring more people into the world when you already have a half dozen to your name? And FYI, sista still lives with her parents! I mean, yikes.
Like I said though, I’m not here to pass judgment.
–No, wait, that’s not right. I am here to pass judgment, and I judge that this lady needs to close her legs and open her wallet to some other cause. Preferably one that doesn’t result in more mouths to feed.
Bloody well done!
