California woman makes history with healthy octuplets - Yahoo! News
read that earlier.
answer me this...with all of the technology today, why do they still take a "shotgun approach" to fertilization? i mean, seriously, why do they give you so many fertilized eggs? it only takes 1 bb to kill a quail. not the whole blast.
second, why don't they do a little "selective health reductions"? i mean, pull out 5 or 6 of the bottom feeders so the others are healthy. she took a HUGE risk trying to give birth to 8 babies.
Because I'm lazy.
13:02:50 <%optix> "we prayed and prayed and prayed"
13:02:56 <%optix> "and god didn't give us a baby"
13:03:05 <%optix> "so we and the church got together the money"
13:03:15 <%optix> "to do invitro, but controling the births is wrong"
13:03:15 <%optix> "and now we're going to have all 7 babies."
13:03:23 <%optix> How do they not see the irony of this?
and they will probably all have names beginning with the letter "h" or something weird.
My wife was watching that show about Jim Bob and his clan of 10000 in Arkansas the other night. Anyhow, one of the boys was getting married on this particular episode, he'd only known the girl for 3 months or whatever, which is fine, but they'd never even kissed. Their first kiss was after they said their vows. Part of the vows was about allowing "God" to decide when they got pregnant and how many kids they have.
The reception of course was at the church, and entailed no drinking or dancing. No dancing? I felt like I was watching Footloose.
And their kids names all begin with a "J"
See, what gets me is the couples like your example, who say "we're going to let god decide whether or not to bless us with child" but then go and get invitro. Then when it comes time to "thin the herd" they scream "NO THAT'S UNETHICAL AND IT'S MURDER!" When asked about their children, they reply "We thank god for every one of our blessings."
great 8 more kids i have to support.....
Ironically for the time being they named them Babies a, b, c, d, e, f, g, and h.
They didn't expect to have the 8th, the doctors had only counted 7 in the womb. Baby h was the accident.
From what I heard they're all doing healthy, with only the smallest of them (baby e) being the more closely watched one.
oh what the fuck?!?!
its NOT mine
If it was yours, it would have been born holding a stuffed penguin.
She had a whole litter!
The best of this,
Are the smiling anchor women. "congratulations on the birth of" "A very lucky couple" "The happy family"...
The kids were born between 1.5 pounds and 3.3 pounds. "They are healthy, and 3 of them are still on breathing machines"
These people had a DISASTER.
But the good news, the mother says she will breastfeed all of them. This means that they will be getting 1cc of breastmilk until the herd thins.
Also, Brian, your money doesn't go to any of these people. They have jobs and insurance. You have a real anger issue.
NBC for those of you outside of the East time zone - "The babies are breathing normally, with the help of oxygen"
This is the media. Behold.
There is NO WAY they will be able to afford these kids.
even if they were both working and making decent salaries prior to the births....
one of them (probably mom) has to quit and stay home.
instant salary cut for the house hold by 40-60% depending on who made what.
just ONE kid puts a burden on a single-income household. now multiply that by 8!
There's just no way, unless the father makes like 150k+ a year and their house is paid for that they will be able to pay for this with out government support of some sort.
Yeah even if they had high paying jobs it still would be incredible hard for them to do it with no help
They will get retardedly huge donations from all over the place. They won't have to worry about money for the first few years.
They will probably have a show on TV, too. People will flood them with stuff from everywhere, and the media will continue to cover everything for a long time to come.
thank goodness for that darn oxygen helping babies to breath!
That is not fucking news, that's stating the obivious. Everyone breaths normaly with the help of oxygen. Just like no one breaths at all with out the help of oxygen.
Separate names with a comma.
