FBLA Editor Self-Pimps LA Weekly Piece

Your humble FBLA editor wrote a story about the Octomom for LA Weekly about how both prolifers and prochoicers hate her:

Nadya Suleman is our local, single, unemployed, plastic surgery-enhanced welfare mother of 14, many of them “special-needs” children. Her story is straight out of Brothers Grimm, and by now the world knows that all of her children, including her octuplets, born in January, were conceived through in-vitro fertilization.

“Does she live in a shoe?” asked my friend’s 4-year-old daughter.

Suleman is a staple for Dr. Phil intervention, tabloid prattle and message-board hostility, but underlying it all is an emerging story that pits her against both prolifers and prochoicers.
