14 is more than enough

At first the octuplet story was just one of those "gee whiz" good news sorts of things, a 12-hour wonder.

Then you find out the mother, Nadya Suleman, conceived those eight kids thru in vitro and kept all eight (which doctors recommend against, but her call). And that BEFORE the in vitro treatment, she already had SIX young children.

What kind of doctor would give fertility treatments to somebody who has had six children already?

Personally, if I were running a health insurance company I wouldn't authorize payment for fertility treatments for somebody who already has six young children. They are great for women that can't conceive and really want children (and are apparently unwilling to adopt). Suleman had more than her fair ration, I'd say.
