Guest Blogger I'm Just Sayin':
I am no fan of Nadya Suleman. In fact, mentally, I think she is "one taco short of a combination plate" if you know what I mean ... but do I think her "case" should be cause for government to be allowed to dictate to women how many children they can have? Hell no!
I realize the bills pending in Georgia and Missouri are designed to address the number of fertilized embryos a woman could create and implant through in-vitro treatments. I also understand the concern that women like Nadya Suleman will turn to public assistance to support their families -- but isn't this going too far? How is it really any different than families that don't use birth control and have eight children? If Jon and Kate were poor, would they be featured on TLC or would they be the subject of legislation?
Is Nadya Suleman fit to be the mother of 14 children? I doubt it, but if hospitals across the country did as much to review the fitness of parents that left the hospital with one baby as they are with Octomom perhaps there would be a lot less child abuse and unnecessary child fatalities caused by negligence.
