OFF TOPIC: Mother of 8 new babies has 6 already at home, is this irresponsible?

Now, I am not against having families even large ones but this story just doesn't add up.

From this article, she has six other kids at home with her parents, where SHE LIVES. There is no mention of a husband, boyfriend, significant other plus she was taking fertility medication and had the embryos implanted.

The woman is very young and has kids at home who are 7, 6, 5, 3 and 2 year old twins. Now what is up with this picture?

Again, folks do what they want, but many people who have 7, 8 babies do expect the public to just shower them with freebies, sorry that has been the habit in the past. In this case, a very young, possibly unmarried mother with 6 kids already and then purposely have multiple more? There is just too much more to this story. Especially from the response of her father:

Within hours, media had camped out at the family's home in Whittier, where the babies' grandfather pulled up in a minivan in the evening and briefly spoke to The Associated Press. Beside him were two children — a 7-year-old and 6-year-old — who said they were excited to have eight new siblings.

But the grandfather warned that media may have a tougher time finding the family after the babies are released from the hospital.

"We have a huge house, not here," said the man, who would only identify himself as Ed. "You are never going to know where it is."

Again, everyone can make their own conclusions, but for me, MORE TO THE STORY.

Confirmed. Mother unmarried and obsessed with having children. All of her kids were through in-vitro.
Angela Suleman told The Associated Press she was not supportive when her daughter, Nadya Suleman, decided to have more embryos implanted last year.

"It can't go on any longer," she said in a phone interview Friday. "She's got six children and no husband. I was brought up the traditional way. I firmly believe in marriage. But she didn't want to get married."

Nadya Suleman, 33, gave birth Monday in nearby Bellflower. She was expected to remain in the hospital for at least a few more days, and her newborns for at least a month.

A spokeswoman at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center said the babies were doing well and seven were breathing unassisted.

While her daughter recovers, Angela Suleman is taking care of the other six children, ages 2 through 7, at the family home in Whittier, about 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

She said she warned her daughter that when she gets home from the hospital, "I'm going to be gone."
