I'm extremely angry with "Octomom" Nadya Suleman right now. Not that she cares... she's apparently willing to give up her dignity for a paycheck. Have you heard about her campaign with Peta? Octomom is willing to put a sign in her yard that says this:
What in the world is this woman thinking? To me, she's selling out. She's telling people it's OK to refer to higher order multiples as "litters." It's offensive... at least to me.
I know Octomom is a controversial topic. As I've said before, I don't agree with the doctor who allowed her to transfer eight embryos, nor can I imagine myself with six children and trying to have one more, let alone eight. But I'm not going to go down that road in this blog again. What I will say is I feel this woman just slapped every mother of multiples in the face by agreeing to do this... all for $5,000 and a month's supply of veggie burgers.
Look, I am all for spaying and neutering your pets. All of my cats, much to their dismay, are neutered. I've volunteered in animal shelters and have seen first hand what happens to unwanted pets. But to compare a litter of animals to higher order multiples? My blood is boiling.
Just when I thought I would never write another blog about Octomom... here she is, making headlines again.
