Question for the prolifers- sorry deleted the other one by mistake

Question for the prolifers
So we all know Octomom chose to have 6 embryos implanted even though she already had 6 kids because she thought of those "leftover" embryos as her kids and wouldn't let them be destroyed. Do you think she made the right choice? I know that most of us would not have let so many embryos be made in the first place so please refrain from giving that as your answer. I am pro choice but I really am not asking so I can start drama or anything, I was just thinking about what a mess the whols situation is and started wondering about that aspect of it.

  • If I couldnt have children and had embryos I would do what my heart lead me to do. I would never destroy them, but I probably would have donated them to a couple who couldnt have kids.

  • I did not realize they could be donated. Interesting.

  • You don't decide how many embryos are made. I could be mistaken because I only did IUI's and not IVF but I had no choice in how many follicles I made. I had a couple months with 8.

    Anyway, this is a great question. It'll be interesting to see how many of those who are pro life are against having to pay for her babies with taxpayer money.

  • i think she should have donated them. i would have only had 3 implanted in me

  • hypothetically, donation
    realistically, I would've adopted instead

  • She could have put them up for adoption. So no, I dont think she made the right choice.

  • I think she should have placed the embryos for adoption but then she wouldn't have had high order multiples like, I believe, she wanted all along.

  • I say that because she started all this in 1999 right about the same time as there was a rash of high order multiples from using fertility drugs. I know correlation does not neccesarily indicate causation but that's still what I think.

  • I need to say something because I am so sick of her and her junk!

    She said her self that she was an athiest until she had the 8 kids because all these christians came out to help her. I, eith my own two ears heard her say that on Dr.Phil.

    So the whole prolife, and embroyo thing is more manipultation on her behalf. She's full of it.

    And I am prolife, I think every child has a purpose if u let him/her live what would be of our country if Obama had been aborted like his mom had thought of doing?

    I had a forced abortion at age 15 (don't say how could it be forced U weren't there), and I miss my baby 10yrs later every single day. As a matter of fact March28th makes 10 yrs.
