    I don’t suppose a reality show is on the wish list as well. Who paid for the fertility shots for this couple who work (worked) at Walmart? Is there no conscience amongst the doctors or the insurance company, if one paid for these treatments?

    The show Jon and Kate Plus 8 has shown desperate families that having a litter apparently pays off with trips, freebies, larger homes, free cars and baby supplies.

    Multiple births are becoming common so manufacturers are developing consciences. They no longer feel that it is to society’s benefit to shower families of multiples with freebies.

    Octomom was seen on tv as saying that she was the first mother of multiples not to get free diapers, baby food, etc.

    Only when people and companies DENY FREEBIES to these irresponsible parents will this crazy race to see who can have the biggest litter stop.

    Sorry, but not only will the parents lose and be saddled with a number of children with special needs, but taxpayers are the BIGGEST LOSERS. These babies will cost $100,000 A DAY in the NICU for up to two months or more — PAID FOR MY MEDICAID/AKA TAXPAYER MONEY.

    DO NOT DONATE TO THIS FAMILY OR ANY OTHER MULTIPLE BIRTH FAMILY. IT IS TIME TO STOP THIS SCAM OF GREEDY, GRIFTER PARENTS WHO ARE SEEKING FREEBIES AND FAME!

    I could not agree more, dessertgirl. They deny using IUI or IVF as if it’s relevant. They used Ovidrel, which stimulates follicles. After the injection and ovulation, a sonogram was conducted to see how many follicles matured, and these jerks went ahead and conceived ANYWAY!
    Now, not only are the tax payers spending millions of dollars on their selfish decision, but 5 humans are subjected to a life of pain and disability. And the attention and handouts are what they want, this shouldn’t be allowed!!
