  • I think it is selfish and wrong! IF those babies survive to full term--they'll be around a pound each, will spend MONTHS in NICU, and likely have a number of developmental issues--growth, organ development, eyesight, brain development issues, etc.

    WHY she couldn't selectively reduce to even 4-6 children --giving them a BETTER chance at survival is mind boggling.

  • This is what happens when Scientists/doctors tamper with nature. The most multiple births I ever heard of was eight (ie; the infamous "octamom").

    I am sorry how is she selfish? She suffered numerous miscarriages and got fertility treatments.
    _____________
    Now the question. I don't know I pray her and the babies have a safe journey. I can't even imagine being pregnant with 12 babies! That is crazy. I couldn't even come up with 12 names lol!

  • I doubt they will all survive and they will not be healthy. They will be very, very premature and there's not enough room to grow properly so they won't be "normal." Stupid, stupid people...trying to compete for how can have the most.

    How could anyone select which ones to abort and not. I know I personally wouldn't be able to.

  • I'm sorry. The first things that I thought of was that dogs, pigs, cats and the such have 12. That's why they have so many teets. I can't imagine her body carrying that many babies.

  • Fertility treatments or not, it's wrong to implant that many embryos. There is a HUGE chance she will lose them all, most women who have 4 or more in their womb miscarry the whole bunch. You don't read about them in People magazine, though.

    She is risking the lives and welfare of TWELVE babies. That is just sick.
