All of FBLA Readers Think the Octuplets Story is Pretty Weird

We asked yesterday, what was the weirdest part of the woman from Whittier giving birth to octuplets. Was it that a single mother underwent fertility treatment? Was it that a mother of six underwent fertility treatment? Was it that a 33 year old underwent fertility treatment? Is it the fact that she’s bankrupt and a mother of 14?

One reader commented that the weirdest thing was ‘that the media now calls her a bitch and a whore’. We’d like to see those links. Show your work, please.

Otherwise, this news story reads like an allegory. It seems like either propaganda for the science phobic or it should be being covered by the Brothers Grimm.

UPDATE: Ann Curry got the first interview with the mother according to the LAT.
