Death threats against octuplet mom.

Why would anyone think it's OK to threaten that mother of 14 kids if you agree with what she did or not? How is that going to solve or fix anything? It really makes me ill that folks would threaten someone with death. She may have made a poor choice but doesn't deserve that or anyone for that matter.

  • I also think that it is crazy to threaten someones life just because you don't agree with the choices that they made. It does not solve the problem, and in fact causes many more problems.
    Hopefully no one was serious, it would be terrible for these kids to grow up with out a mother.

  • Although I do not condone it, I can understand it. A woman with a recently lost job, loses her home, is a churchgoer, does well for people and has 2 small kids. Is out on the street with only her smarts to get her by, and hears the story of a headcase living off the government and has a website for donations, and up until this time has had all the family help she could get, and a large disability settlement with the state and addtitional payments from the state to help her. Yeah, I can see perfectly well why someone on the edge would want to kill her.

  • Agree. Though I think this wacko octomom needs immediate mental health intervention, she certainly doesn't deserve a death threat!!!!!!! If this is true, if it isn't just one of her lies for attention.....????? Death threats issue aside and duly noted as horrible......Honestly though, what did she think we all would think?

  • But can't we just not condone it? Do we have to threaten her life?

  • I agree. It's totally assenine. "Let's kill someone because she had too many kids." DUH!

    I guess they think we should go to all these third world countries where they continuously pop out babies that starve to death and kill all those women too? No wait. I forgot, we are going to send them money for abortions!

  • I saw this yesterday and wasn't surprised. I'm not saying it's right, but people in Cali are mad that she chose to do what she did and now they have to pay for it. If the babies would have been conceived naturally and it was just a freak happening then there wouldn't so much anger. It doesn't make it right, but I do get why people are upset.
