    For, people who can't use a damn condom or birth control and have 18 kids should have to pay just as much in taxes as people who have one or two kids.

      Mo babies is, indeed, a problem. And while I would not limit families to one child or even two or even three, it is high time that society recognize unchecked population growth as the seious problem it is. It's high time we stop celebrating large families and instead view the parents as selfish and deserving of disdain. We should stop celebrating large families with TV shows: this is simply disgusting.

      It's not the babies fault. But this woman should recieve none of the attention she so desperately seeks. She is doing cartwheels with no panties.

        In Saudi Arabia, Palestine, Afghanistan, Pakistan, sub-Saharan Africa more babies is indeed a problem as their economies don't produce jobs thus those babies grow up to be jihadists.

        In most western countries (the USA & France excluded) the issue is too few babies.

        As for Nadya Suleman, she needs to have her head examined. And her babies placed in the car of someone sane.

          There is no where on the globe where too few babies is a problem. The world now has, what. . . 6 billion people? Sheeesh. Too few babies may be a political problem but that is insignificant in comparison to the problems generated worldwide by that many people. It's time people slip the raincoat on the ole willie and be satisfied with small families.

            "...where too few babies is a problem."

            Tell that to the Italians, Russians, and the Japanese.

            You are taking a sledgehammer approach to population where a scalpel is needed. Too much population is a tremendous problem in South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa where almost three-fourths of the world's population lives. Too little population is an issue in much of Western Europe, Japan, and Russia where the birth rates are below replacement levels.
