    This woman has real problems and probably should be put into psychiatric care.

    I haven't heard anything about the father.  Did she get the male DNA from a sperm bank?  That would make it even more disgusting.

      it was a friend who begged her to stop.  But Nadya implanted all the rest of her frozen embryos so they wouldn't die.

      Multiple births like this are not natural or healthy.  No human mother should have octuplets without help.  But if we help her too much, then we send the message this is acceptable.  Apparently Nadya believes she will be helped by society because of this event.  It is a sad story.

        because many of the babies sometimes die in utero and the survivors sometimes end up with severe birth defects. Some parents in these situations resort to "selective reduction", aborting some of the babies. But a lot of parents won't do that and I can understand that too.
