Octomom Admits IVF Was a Mistake

Dolls and real kids? Are DIFFERENT.

Nadya Suleman, the infamous Octomom, was on Dateline Friday night telling Tamron Hall that having her octuplets on top of the 6 children she already had was a “mistake”.

“Was it a mistake to go back and have IVF after having six children already?” NBC News Dateline correspondent Tamron Hall asked in an interview that aired Friday night.

“Yes,” Suleman said. “Absolutely. Was I in my lucid state of mind? I don’t know at that point. I could rationalize myself away and I’m good at rationalizing.”


I try my best not to get all judgy-judgy about other people’s parenting choices. I mean, it’s not up to me how many kids people have or what they feed them or what tv they let them watch or if they co-sleep or blah blah blah. That’s all part of my uber-life-philosophy and what makes me pro-choice: I’m pro-ALL-choices. Except abuse or neglect, of course. But this Octo-lady makes me angry and so does her doctor (who also said he shouldn’t have treated her – too little, too late buddy!). This woman has some serious pathology going on here, what with the plastic surgeries, the oodles of kids and the resorting to posing nude and doing fetish videos to keep the wolf from the door.

There’s something so fundamentally irresponsible about the way she went about collecting children the way that couple on My Crazy Obsession collected Cabbage Patch Kids. Only these are real children! With real needs! That Octomom is not capable of meeting!

The only thing sadder than her thinking her choice to have all these kids was a mistake is the fact that she said so on national tv. I hope those kids never see that broadcast.
