About Those Octuplets ...

More

Heather Mac Donald launches a broadside:

...the backlash against Nadya Suleman, the mother of six artificially-conceived children who gave birth to another eight two weeks ago continues.   The nine-week premature octoplet’s delivery required 46 doctors, nurses, and assistants; in twelve days, their care has likely cost at least $300,000 and counting.   Here’s a possible rule of thumb: If you are a radical pro-lifer and believe that every artificially-conceived embryo must be brought to term, no fertility treatments for you unless you are prepared to bankroll all the resulting medical costs yourself.  Either accept your God-given condition of infertility or accept a human condition on the man-made science for overcoming that infertility: use within reason.
