Jokester: Hey, did you hear that Ihop has created a new breakfast special honoring Nadya Suleman?
Unsuspecting Friend: No, I didn't. What is it?
Jokester: 14 eggs. No sausage. And the next guy pays for it.
Unsuspecting Friend: ha ha ha ha THAT IS THE BEST JOKE THAT I HAVE EVER HEARD!
Once you stop laughing hysterically, I have a question for you (and please post your thoughts in the comment section): What are your thoughts / opinions on the Octumom Phenomenon (trying saying that 10 times fast)?
Surprisingly, I have an opinion about it. It was wrong. For many reasons.
1. I don't care what type of surgery you want to do or have done to yourself until it affects other people. Those poor children and doomed to have developmental problems. And how can any half-way normal person (which she isn't) care for, and raise, a family of 14?
Also, don't do selfish things like this and then rely on the taxpayers to pay for your poor choices. Criteria for NOT having 14 children: living in a 3 bedroom house THAT YOUR PARENTS OWN, not being married (to have a second person to help out), and NOT HAVING A JOB.
2. The doctor needs to be reprimanded in some form or fashion. Maybe a good spanking.
While Dennis and I were visiting with our high risk specialist the other day, I just HAD to ask her opinion on all of this nonsense. Her reply was simple. "When you become a doctor, you take an oath to do no harm. The doctor that did this violated that oath."
I couldn't agree more. I am obviously a fan of the medical technology that has been developed allowing people to use tools like IVF to have a family but this is not how it is supposed to be used. Our doctor went on to say that she never understands why a physician implants more than 1 or 2 embryos at a time. The risk to the baby and the mother are too high when you do that.
Please share your thoughts and opinions. I am excited to hear what everyone thinks.
