And suddenly, the fetus fetishists go quiet ...


Awwwwwwwwkward (all emphasis leg-humpingly added):

Octuplets' Mom "Obsessed" With Having Kids

(CBS/AP) The woman who gave birth to octuplets this week conceived all 14 of her children through in-vitro fertilization, is not married, and has been obsessed with having children since she was a teenager, her mother said.

Angela Suleman told The Associated Press she was not supportive when her daughter, Nadya Suleman, decided to have more embryos implanted last year.

"It can't go on any longer," she said in a phone interview Friday. "She's got six children and no husband. I was brought up the traditional way. I firmly believe in marriage. But she didn't want to get married."

A single mom? Oh, wait ... it gets so much better:

The Sulemans moved to Whittier, about 15 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, after they declared bankruptcy and abandoned a home elsewhere, Kauffman has reported.

Normally, at this point, you'd hear the right-wing Idiotsphere yammering on about how, if you can't afford to have children, stop having them so the taxpayers don't have to support your sorry ass.

Curiously, though, they're suddenly big fans of single, indigent moms having 14 kids. Isn't that the darndest thing?

The "quality" of rightwingnutz support is measured by the perceived mileage they think can get by yammering on and on about how no "chidren" were purportedly murdered

The story relates a more substantive point, though: What medical professional would even agree to do this?

An American medical professional.

Cronenberg couldn't do fiction these days that would rival the reality freak-shows that the mainstream media broadcasts.

Interesting isn't it?

When I read fern hill's comment, I read nothing in it about taking away the woman's choice to have kids, only clear questions of her motivation for the choice...something fern confirms later on.

When SUZANNE reads it, she reads in telling the woman not to have kids, restricting her her from IVF and deciding for her if she can have kids.

The post reveals more about the authoritarian mindset of SUZANNE, where disagreeing with a choice automatically means trying to take that choice away. It never even occurs to her that someone could disagree with the choice made, but still be in favour of having the choice.
