Nadya Suleman: Babies disgust me

In an interview with In Touch magazine, Nadya Suleman reportedly makes some strong remarks about children- including her own.

Suleman, who was labeled with the moniker "Octomom" after she gave birth to octuplets in 2009, told the publication, "I hate babies, they disgust me."

She went on, "My older six are animals, getting more and more out of control, because I have no time to properly discipline them."

The single mom told the magazine that the only way she can cope is to lock herself in the bathroom and cry.

"Sometimes I sit there for hours and even eat my lunch sitting on the toilet floor. Anything to get peace and quiet," she said.

Suleman admits that her bank account is "overdrawn by $300 and I have no money to pay for the children's school, food or the mortgage." She's previously hosted a yard sale at her La Habra, California home to deal with financial hardship, and has reportedly signed on to be on the HDNet reality TV show Celebridate.

"Some days I have thought about killing myself. I cannot cope," Suleman tells In Touch. She says of her kids, "Obviously, I love them - but I absolutely wish I had not had them."

Nadya Suleman will appear on HLN's "Dr. Drew" on July 12.

    Just because there are a few stupid people that can't handle their children doesn't
    mean people should be taxed after thier 3rd child. Are you stupid? Are you truly that ignorant?
    I mean, you sound even more stupid than Octomom. Seriously- you are probably one

    Disgusting comments... but we need to be a bit careful about reacting only based on what she says and opens up to share. At this point she is opnly sharing the truth about how she feels. Do you not think it will be pretty unlikely she will do so in the future if she gets a visit from CPS? When people are openly communicating their pain I think it can be dangerous to treat them in a way that will make them hide it in the future. There needs to be action taken... but it needs to be cautius. NOthing here will get her kids taken away. It will only go to make her less willing to talk in the future.

    For someone who couldn't have children makes me very sad to hear her say that. Children are a gift from God. She thought she could expose the children for money like a zoo or circus and look where it got her. Now she's got kids out of control and probably in a few years we'll hear that her older children will be in the CPS system having done some type of petty crimes. Very sad.

    Chastising her at this point is fairly useless. Looking at the bright side, she can serve as a cautionary tale for anyone else looking to make themselves into a grotesque social experiment. Her original plan was probably to be making enough money from this circus to afford the kind of support she'd need to manage her 'family'. Unfortunately she's discovered too late the attention span of the media, and its consumers, is brief.

    Immediately this story made me feel sad for the children. I cannot imagine having fourteen children and being able to give them each the care and love they need, even with two parents. Unfortunately this woman's poor choices have placed her in this extremely difficult situation. She and her doctor are both to blame. I find her behavior to be very selfish and irresponsible. I feel she was so desperate for public attention that she simply gave no concern or thought as to what day to day life would truly be like. I agree with several of the posts I had read today. These children are in danger.

    Nadia was young,and I blame her obstetrician for this irresponsible decision. She had mutiple embryos implanted before,resulting in a single birth.There must be some community with enough compassion for this young woman,to accept her family. Not in expensive California. Where is Habitat,when she needs a larger than life helping hand.You folks cannot read her mind. She needs a group of caring people to work out a schedule of 4 hour shifts,maybe 2 at a time.She needs help,not criticism.She needs someone with her all the time,to help supervise the older ones,and people to be there to help her with the bathing ,potty training,etc. She is at the end od her emotional rope. I raised twins,and it was a job. I am turning 61,with a 16 year old.I hope every small community,with inexpensive older victorians,etc,will welcome her, and send a group of churchmen to renovate,getting supply companies to donate.There are answers for this young woman.She isn't some demon,she needs help. Every church out there,pray for her. She wasn't getting pregnant by sleeping around.What so ever you do to the least of my brothers,that,you do unto me,says Jesus.Every community and church,please pray about this.One will be willing to step up to the plate.

  44. CPS Worker

    I am very hard pressed to find a mom that doesn't love her children. But everyone has their own issues to deal with and how they deal with it is what we should be looking at. Should she have had a million kids: no. But the fact remains that she does and now she needs to learn effective ways in which to handle the situation. As a Child Protection worker, it is concerning that she locks herself in for hours-not becuase she necessarily locked herself in but that I would hope she has arranged for some type of supervision for the kids. And there is a difference between hating the situation you have found yourself in and having a negative perception of your children. When you have a negative perception of your children is what leads to children dying. She needs to access community services and create an appropriate support system so that it is not the children who are really hurt in the end. My grandmother happily had 15 children and didn't work since she had to take care of them. But they made it work and never used an ounce of public assistance.

    Nadya Suleman disgusted me from the very first day she came into the limelight. When she was getting the attention she craved, she was very abusive to her old parents who helped raise the older children. She thought she would be rich and famous and the state was obliged to help raise these numerous children she brought into the world. It is SHE who is DISGUSTING. Those innocent children, irresponsibly brought into the world didnt have a choice! If those kids are not taken away it will be another Andrea Yates, Susan Smith or Casey Anthony all over again.

    If these statements are true someone needs to intervene before she kills herself or the children. Stable people do not talk this way. If she is locking herself in the bathroom for hours on end no wonder they are out of control. 14 kids left unattended would of course be out of control.

    She wants a reality show? How about she gets one–about placing each one of her babies with a stable, loving family. People seem to have no problem seeing how Kourteney Kardashian and that gross boyfriend of hers plan on going about having a second child. They don't seem to have a problem watching people go through drug rehab, so why not this? Sign her up and lets get started. She can place an octuplet a month. Everyone wins.

    The youngest ones are still young enough to be adopted out. She needs to do this as soon as possible for their mental health and for hers. Then she will be able to spend more time parenting the older children. She wasn't able to bankroll breeding, the media didn't bite. Experiment over. Time to put the babies in loving homes, and fast.

There are jobs she can do from home so she needs to do that and quite looking for everyone else to give her handouts. She is a pathetic loser.

    She wanted this because of all the attention it would give her. She had the babies, and she got the attention. I have absolutely no sympathy for this horrible woman and all the sympathy in the world for her children. Kids are a lifelong commitment, not just the latest fashion trend or a new way to get attention from people. If she is disgusted by kids now, wait until they all grow up and have kids of their own that they are not able to take care of and they end up passing them off to grandma so they can continue to party and seek attention.

    Poor woman, she needs help, a lot of help. I can understand her. I wish I lived close by and could come and stay with the kids and give her some free time. She got into it and now she needs help. She is a good mother. Look at her kids, everyone is fed, everyone is dressed. She closes herself in the bathroom, but she doesn't harm the kids, like Casey Anthony did. I have 3 kids and when I don't get a break I feel like hiding somewhere as well. And when I do get that break I feel so energized and happy and so much more loving to the kids. I feel so bad for Nadia and I wish there were people out there who could help her out. She is a very good mother!

    I hear the other "mother of the year" candidate, Casey Anthony is looking to adopt. Go back and read Ms. Suleman's quotes from when she gave birth to the octuplets – she was delusional and way out of touch with reality then. The doc had his license revoked in CA just this month. CNN reported she still has 29 more frozen embryos! This woman needs serious psych help before she hurts those poor kids. The older ones are old enough to read these quotes all over the internet – how awful for them for their mother to publicly say such things about them.

And the doctor that gave her the fertility treatments knowing she had no job and was not stable should lose his license. I wonder if the sperm was his? Evidently the idea was to get pregnant and have them. But the idea of financial problems never seemed to occur to her. She probably thought the notoriety would bring financial gain. Evidently it did not. Or at least not enough to handle 14 children. So she had them for all the wrong reasons and now cannot stand them I bet the feeling is mutual. Disgusting!!

    There is nothing that can be said about this sick woman than has already been said. And those kids are going to have a terrible life. Between her bouts of dislike and her despondency it will be hell. These children should be taken from her so they can possibly have a stable and decent life. She needs to be hospitalized.

    It's no longer about this narcissistic woman getting what she deserves, it's about saving society from the repurcussions of children who are neglected, simply because she can't do it alone. All of her children (their own mother calls them animals? wow) are at risk of angry, possibly harmful behaviors that they will take into adulthood. Those who can should save their own children and society at large by rescuing these children. Nadya, do what you should've done, give these children up for adoption, even if it is just the younger children, before you ruin all of your childrens' lives.

    Why hasn't she considered suing the doctor that impregnated her?
    Obviously she had mental issues when she went in to see him for the fertility treatments.
    ANY (unemployed) single mother that already has 6 kids, and is seeking to impregnate themselves with 8 embryos- should be sent for counceling BEFORE the procedure. Law requires a woman to see a councelor before she can have an abortion, but not before she conceives a litter? This Dr apparently had misguided visions of grandeur, and tried to use Ms Suleman as his catalyst to fame. Although it thankfully backfired on him, and he lost his license. But isn't that further proof that civil litigation is warranted on her behalf? I wonder what she is waiting for? She certainly got herself into this, but she didn't do it alone. The kids are the true ones that are suffering..hate to see them seperated, but don't see how it can be helped..

    I personally feel that this woman was trying to play off of the reality show "Jon & Kate plus 8" which is now known as "Kate plus 8". She saw how they were in the limelight and making a living from this and I think that was her motiovation in having more children. Now that her 15 minutes of fame is over she is left with the consequences of what she has done and is having a hard time living with it. The woman should be sterilized so she can't have more children and the ones she has should be put into homes where they would be loved and appreciated. She certainly doesn't deserve them.

That's normal. What is not normal is getting on the radio or Tv telling this to reporters and a world that already hates you. I think Nayda is asking for help. I think she is seriously asking for an agency to step in and take her kids away, but she can't admit that, so she makes these statements to get sympathy, KNOWING it will fuel the fire of hatred toward her. But she doesn't care because she needs help, seriously. She needs help.

    Who wants to be that within six months she'll come out saying she has mental health issues, something like Post Partum Depression or bipolar, and use that as a reason for having made the comments that she wishes she did not have them and that she hates babies and for reasoning about locking herself in the bathroom. The octuplets are what, a year and a half old now, they are not babies. They are toddlers. Who wants to be she'll put a book out, something like "It Sucked and then I Cried" or "Belly Laughs", something along those would give more publicity!
    Locking herself in the bathroom is her coping skill. Get counseling instead lady. She made some really poor choices in life (like getting implanted with the six embryos when she already had six kids) and she continues to do so. She should get herself help – no, not financial assistance but a support network to help with the kids, suck it up and carry on with life. Really, she only has 16 1/2 years until the youngest kids are grown up. The best thing for the kids right now might be to put them into care but in the long run, keeping the family together and providing proper supports should be the goal. If not, I'm sure there are people willing to adopt all the kids at once, you'd have an instant sports team, how fun that would be! (I'm kidding about the sports team but big families are great). The kids deserve more attention than she seems to give them, it good she loves them an all but it's time she starts raising them.

    Your right, CPS is NOT the answer, but what is the answer? What is right for one person may not work for another. I do not think a Reality show is the answer. That just feeds into the spotlight for attention. What the woman needs is to get a job, a real job, she can work from home on her computer, she could write a book and tell her story, (the real story if she can be trusted to tell the truth) or she could be just like the rest of us who have families and work and find the money to pay for part time help for these kids.
    Moms on Welfare can get cheap to free child care, Head Start, Mommy and Me programs and I know that there is SOMETHING that she can do.
    She needs organization and routine, with that she WILL be able to manage because she HAS TO.
    I just think that she needs to take responsibility and quit whining about not having money or time. I know she received a lot of money when those babies were born. Not enough to make her rich, but if she had invested some of it or set it up in savings or what ever, she would be ok.
    How many of us have had a house given to us? How many of us have trouble making it from pay check to pay check without even considering the every day emergencies that pop up?
    She may want the kids dressed in the best, but she needs to get real and hit The Good Will, K-Mart and Wal-Mart and Target!
    Also all of the pictures I have seen of her lately have been single shots. I understand ME time, but what about some One on One time with a couple of the kids while she runs errands and such?
    No I am sorry I do not support her. Even her actions tell a sad story. I applaud all of those people who are giving a helping hand, cleaning house, doing laundry and bringing meals and all that they are doing because THEY are the ones that are thinking of the children. She is out there thinking of herself and to me that is just sad.
    I believe that God has a reason for every life. I am glad that she did not abort those babies, but those dr.s should have known what kind of hardship this would bring upon her and these babies.

    This disgusts me and breaks my heart. Here me and my husband are, two individuals deeply in love and desperately trying for our first child for 2.5 years with no luck. We have good jobs, a loving home, and a desire to start our own family but it hasn't happened yet. Infertility is such a rollercoaster of emotions. Fertility testing and treatment is expensive and our insurance does not cover a penny. Then here is a lady with no job or income, no spouse or partner, with many children already and with help from her doctor was able to have IVF and conceive 8 more healthy, beautiful children. She probably didn't pay a dime for any of it. We are doing some less expensive treatments right now, but we were told IVF could cost $16,000 to $20,000. We don't have that kind of money, but have so much love to give and no children of our own to share it with. She was given multiple blessings in those children and now she doesn't even want them anymore! So unfair ๐Ÿ™

    And she is going to get a reality series out of this..... This is wrong and those kids are the ones that will suffer from this. There is not enough hours in the day to properly care for that many kids and she went into this with her eyes open.
    I also have to wonder.... She was on welfare, so how in the world did she come up with all that money for having her eggs planted?
    I really think that she thought that she could get rich and it backfired on her and now she is stuck with it. It is what it is and at the end of the day one or more of those precious innocent kids are going to go to bed needing one more hug, one more kiss, one more of something from a mom who admits she cannot cope.

    The reality is that they (the "Govt") can't just jump in to take the kids away. Neither will telling her to kill herself solve the problem, since the children will know they caused their mother to kill herself. That's a formula for future problems X 14. Why don't they set up Guardian Ad Litems to represent the welfare of the children? And a conservator for the mom? The person can be tasked to ensure the money goes where it was designated to go. It will certainly be cheaper than fighting for custody of the children, legal issues with the mom, et al. And it may work....

    BTW– With everyone pointing out (rightly) that everthing we read on the net isn't necessarily true, maybe this whole story isn't true? Could it be a massive experiment in social networking??? Probably just as "real) as 90% of the stories we read.

    I don't blame anyone for having moments of regret or frustration in regards to their own children. Parenting is a difficult job with any number of children, let alone fourteen of them. But let's keep a few things in perspective. First of all, these feelings she is having are a very personal situation that must be dealt with privately, and it is NOT AT ALL appropriate for her to be telling a gossip magazine, of all things, that she is disgusted by her children and she is considering suicide. You may love your children, but good luck explaining this comment to them when they inevitably find out about it. Secondly, she brought this upon herself. Look at the facts – she had six children, no husband, no degree, and no real career path, but still decided to deliberately impregnate herself with eight more kids. Now the fame has worn off, the bills are piling up, and whatever reality TV gig she lands might pay for a few months of diapers, groceries, and rent – IF she's lucky. But what then? Does she really believe that reality television, book deals, and photo pictorials will pay her outstanding bills, let alone the kids' education? She may have screwed up her own life with her decisions, but the children deserve better than this.

    Fourteen kids & no help. She's overwhelmed. Of course she's confused and distressed. She should have stopped when she had only two kids. There's no excuse for this sort of nonsense in this day-and-age. If she had conceived them under conditions of personal intimacy, instead of wasting taxpayer-monies on non-Traditional conception, and had this many kids, she would not be in as big a fix. The older ones would have already been taught how to help, and not be 'animals', while the babies would have come in their ones and twos. The oldest of the kids would probably already be on their own. Instead, she's faced with an unwieldy task of her own creation.

    If she said what they claim she said, I would see it as a call for HELP. She's only human. She sounds overwhelmed and depressed and look at the support she is likely getting – and don't tell me other FANTASTIC mothers do not have their moments. The only difference here is that her comments were said out loud. If she really doesn't love her children, she should not have them, but a person can love their kids and STILL get overwhelmed. Instead of bashing her, people should be thinking about what they could do to help – even if all it is is to offer advice on stress relief. BOO to all those who bash someone for having a negative thought or feeling.

    How sad that a woman who knowingly took hormones to ensure that she had MULTIPLE children with her last pregnancy now hates her children! Children do not ask to be born – and once they are....well, it's the parent(s) responsibility to be sure that they are loved and cared for. She has 16 kids? Yep, it's gonna be noisy at her house all the time...what did she expect?? If she herself cannot instill a little discipline in her kids, she should seek the help of professionals who can help her set boundaries and begin to instill the correct type of discipline in her kids.

    I feel sorry for her. She is totally overloaded for a time, and is simply having a hard time coping. Anyone with such a load would be! It sounds like she needs most a few minutes to herself a day so she can breathe and clear the fog out of her brain and refresh herself so she can handle the fray she's got on hand. Feeling "frazzled" at times is normal for most new mothers (whether they've 1 or 20 children, doesn't matter!), especially if they have to handle everything on their own. Given a little compassion and understanding, she'll be able to pull through and once again see her children as the blessings they are and that she hoped they would be, and be the happy mommy again!

    As a woman in a stable relationship (12 years married) who is undergoing IVF (which is looking more and more like it won't work) I find this woman and her doctors appalling. Our IVF doctor would implant no more than 3 embryos in me; that her doctor chose to implant as many as he did, when she was young and in good health and had no medical need for it is what disgusts me. Not only should her doctor lose his license but every single one of her children should go to loving families who would give anything to have a child. They didn't ask to be born and it takes a hell of a lot more to be a mother than physically giving birth.

    She is totally sick. The doctor who implanted the embryo's in her should not only be banned from practicing medicine (as I believe he has been, at least in Ca–but in every state) and he should be deported–I don't care if he was from this country or not. I ABSOLUTELY agree that CPS should be called in, but the tragedy here is that kids are so rarely adopted and most are just shifted around from home to home where they may be loved, or they may not be loved. That's the tragedy of the system. It's a tragedy she's a freak who never should have had kids and it's a tragedy they were brought into this world where they are being abused and neglected. Hideous!

    you get a clue after the first one that it ain't no bed of roses raising kids. so you stop after the next one and if you still want more AND you have the means to afford them and the necessary help to keep from going insane, then you have another. you don't have six of them then complain that they disgust you.

The Dr. who fulfilled this wish and broke his oath, and HAS harmed someone should certainly be accountable. He directly brought these children into the world.

I wouldn't be surprised if one or more of those kids writes a best-selling humour novel or memoir. That will really set the vindictive machine in motion. Many of our grandparents had large families that they could not support.

    During hte Depression, my mother-in-law's family had ten children and the father died at age 40 leaving the heroic mother ot raise them all. They all love each other very much.

    She will be fine financially by getting rich off of us watching her reality tv show. We love to watch people we hate or judge on t.v, it is a part of our human DNA, but she will be the rich one in the end while we help the the ratings of her show.

    Instead of raising two kids really well, she is raising 14 kids half ass. Financially they will be fine, emotionally they will suffer.

    Nadja Suleman is facing reality right now. So, I will not judge her for her comments because I have one and another on the way. I can't imagine doing it on my own at this point. Yet, I don't always think my 3 yr old son is the best most perfect child ever and as a baby, I had moments where he JUST WOULD NOT STOP CRYING and I wanted to shake him, but I didn't. In any case, I don't judge her comments but I do judge that she has 14 children on her own, what was she thinking. Instead of raising two or one child really well, she is raising 14 children and the likelyhood of her not doing a REALLY REALLY GOOD JOB is very slim because the kids won't get the attention they need.

    In any case, she is doing a reality show, she is getting famous off of us giving her the attention and our judgements because no matter how much we think she is wrong and out of her mind, something about the human species makes us want to watch her and criticise and while we do that, she will make a lot of money as we watch her reality show bringing up her ratings and she quickly gets rich.

    Financially her kids will be fine because she will get rich off of us watching her show, but emotional her kids will suffer.

    Yes, she is a horrible woman. That was obvious right from the start but it's not illegal to be horrible. So far, it appears that nothing she has done is illegal.This whole situation is a mess. Clearly it is obvious to just about EVERYONE she is a few sandwiches short of a picnic so how did a supposedly trained professional doctor decide she was mentally competent and allow her to be mother to all these children??? Not sure what happened to the Dr, hope he at least lost his license and loses it in every State he tries to work in. The woman is going to be in the news for a long time, she can't cope with the situation and the lack of attention will cause her to do and say all kinds of outrageous things. Feel sorry for her???? Feel sorry for the courts and the child service workers who will have to deal with all this mess too, it must be SO frustrating and painful to want to help the kids but some well-dressed celebrity lawyer steps in and gets the kids sent home again. Feel sorry for the kids who are all going to end up on the Media circuit themselves-wait for the endless supply of books, Movie-of-the-Week, "Child Star -Gone-Wrong" Specials,chat shows, interventions, etc. etc. Feel sorry for the taxpayer who is going to be on the hook for all the ca$h to pay for all the mental health care, welfare etc.

    I am simply amazed by all of the hatred being posted. I personally agree that she should not have had these children and that her reasoning was wrong to have more, women have children everyday, she is not special. There are even women who have multiple birth like she had and yet there are no camera crews following them around. Comparing this woman to the Duggars or Goslins is wrong though... look at the good the media did for these families! The Goslins disintergrated and the Duggars have no privacy, though in their defense, they were able to make ends meet on their own before TLC came on the scene.
    Rather than lashing out at the mother, we need to all take care of these kids. It is not the kids fault that they were born to a media hungry idiot. These children are innocent. Even though I have a very small income that I have to stretch to make fit three children, I would still be more than willing to step in and adopt some of these children. All of the people spewing their anger should be willing to do the same.

      You are wrong on one point. It isn't "our' responsibility to take care of these children. It is hers. She chose to have them because she thought she'd get a great t.v. deal out of it, or whatever was in her screwed up brain. That said, I agree that the children should be taken away and placed with loving homes that DO have the "time" to parent them. She needs to be sterilized and all her welfare taken away. She can then get up off her rear end and get a job. The fact that she has the audacity to say these things sickens me.

However, she certainly does NOT need the counsel of doctors like she had when she first initiated this problem! I for one, don't know what to think OR what to do!

    In this situation it's easy to say the little guys especially should be taken away and put up for adoption BUT, I think it would be a shame and disgrace to separate the octuplets. It would be very difficult to place all 8 with one family. I am an adoptee, and I'm telling you it just wouldn't be right to do this. Since this is a fete accompli, the State should provide a fulltime nanny or nannies to assist Nadya til the kids get school age. This would be simpler and more cost effective than foster care, and better for the kids to stay with their siblings. What about assigning a conservator to monitor her finances? They have agencies that do it for disabled people. The court should order that as part of her being able to keep the kids. Whatever money she gets, would be processed by them, bills paid and remainder released to her for her use. WHERE ARE ALL THE PROLIFERS OUT THERE? She could have had a selection process to abort some of the children but she didn't, what about the dr.'s malpractice insurance, providing her a settlement because he did implant too many embryos. Drs have a moral obligation to refuse to do things to people that will harm them even if they want it.

      Bob...are you aware that 1 in 4 Americans have a mental illness at some point in their lives? That's means you and your loved ones have a 1 in 4 chance of having a mental illness. Do you seriously want the police stepping into *your* business and making decisions for you simply simply because you have a mental illness? Do you seriously think that you and yours would have "too much of a free hand"? Believe it or not, you already know people with mental illness...your friends, your neighbors, your coworkers...even your family. And, in most cases, you probably aren't even aware of it because their medication/therapy are helping them control their symptoms. But they still have the mental illness.

      To proclaim that having a mental illness alone is grounds for the police to step in and make decisions about what 25% of the entire American population can and cannot do is...well, it's illogical and financially impossible. And it says far more about *you* than it does about people with mental illness.

    She is disgusted of her kids, but reportedly signed on to be on the HDNet reality TV show Celebridate. Really!!..If you have 14 kids and bank account is overdrawn, you have nobody to blam but yourself and the father of those kids. This woman and the father put theirself in this predictament and during the whole time with hands out accepting charity. So she is a single mom, but there are single moms with 1 or 2 kids that are in much worse shape then this women. I know many single parents that work hard to support their kids while this idiot gets signed up for Celebridate and worse off she is probably getting government assistance. HDNet are idiots for even wanting this individual and anyone that wants to watch their show(s) is just help feeding their stupid cause.

    Moms who actually need help should receive help. Like a mom who was left with kids by her husband. Not some woman who had no income when she decided to have 8 kids with a previous 6. That was a stupid decision she made (not a mistake) and should have to deal with it like everyone else. ITS PART OF LIFE.

    It's easy to lambast this woman for continuing to pop out babies like a Pez dispenser. It was my first reaction too. And, while I do think she made terrible decisions and created this whole mess, I have one thing to say in her defense. She has clearly been very mentally disturbed for a good long while. Someone should have taken the reigns away from this woman ages ago. I'm not saying that she has no personal responsibility here, just that she may not be as able to control her impulses as a healthy person. People around her have been enabling her loon ball behavior for years. I'm glad her doctor lost his license. He never should have inseminated a woman so mentally ill, and certainly not in the manner that he chose. I just can't help but wonder how many people around her, who were not completely insane, listened to her plans to have more children and said, "That's nice dear." What were the nurses and assistants in that doctor's office thinking throughout this process? Her parents were obviously not behind her, but did she have no one in her life to say, "Time for a trip to the Commitment Center, Sweetie." It just seems odd and tragic that this runaway train wreck was allowed to continue on its course for so long with nobody to put on the brakes.

    I bet her children don't disgust her half as much as she disgusts me. I put her in the same category as women that get pregnant to trap a husband. There is NO reason to bring children into this cold, cruel world except the reason that you want a child to love and only if you are capable mentally,physically, and emotionally to care for that child until you draw your last breath on this earth. She already had children so the grueling hours of childcare, no sleep, worry, costs, and stresses that come with the territory was no surprise heaped upon her when she went out and chose to bring more into the world. I feel no sympathy toward her. I do feel sorry for the children for they did not ask to be born as a meal ticket. I am afraid this is going to turn out to be another sad ending one way or the other eventually if children's services do not get involved. Where is Gloria Allred now? She needs to get back on the soap box for these kids. Seems like she would have some good ammunition now with Octomom's latest statements.

    Oh no! I don't think we owe this woman anything! It was her moronic idea to have all these kids with no means of support. SHe already had kids and this was so clearly a greedy scheme to get money from the event it's disgusting. Unfortunately society, and our tax dollars will have to pay for taking care of these kids now and yes, all of them should be taken away from her immediately. But I don't feel sorry for ehr at all. She did this and she's responsible. She should be forced to work to chip in to care for the kids when they are taken away. She's lazy and stupid and should be made to pay for her greed and behavior. The kids will be far better off when removed from her care.

    And none of this has anything to do with free speech. She's an uncaring mother who deserves to be lambasted for her horrible remarks.

I saw one of her episode on TV and those kids are demons from Hell. They are out of control. They will make u commit suicide or child abuse. Oh my goodness when they aired that brief segment of her life and home I just shook my head, and wonder why children service is not involved. There are people out there that want kids and can't have them and u got this nut case that got them and don' t want them. This country is all screwed up. Now the state have to give her a medical card and food stamps inwhich they take out of our pay check for State and Federal funds. I do believe she has several kids that get social security because of mental issues. This is truely a act of selfishness, greed, unfit, abused to the system..Children Service step in and take control ....I wonder with all those kids who to say that they are not being abused?

      Most Americans...not liberal/conservative/independent/Republican/Democrat/libertarian, but most Americans...want someone *else* to take care of the problems they want taken care of. They're just slacktivists.

      Want a perfect example? Look at all the people on this forum who wrote that they hoped that someone *else* would call Child Protective Services.

    First the kids are not a fault for the decision of the mother. She did what she did because she thought it would be an easy ticket to fame and fortune like that what's their names that paraded their brood of six on a reality show and make millions then got divorced. They used these kids for money, when problems arose they split. Where was the commitment to the marriage and the kids.?

    The kids don't deserve to be punished for the mothers bad choices. If I was rich and had dough I would probably help her out for the kids sake. By the way what is wrong with you selfish people out there that are offended that she make get some public assistance have you all forgot how to be Christians or do you all enjoy standing around and watch the children suffer because the mother is an i d i o t. My last question is why was adoption never an option? Would not the ultimate expression of love have been to give most of the kids up to loving two parent family that could care and raise them and do many things for them that she cannot do? The last question is why is a single women even allowed to be implanted with so many eggs or any at all for that matter. I think all that doctor ought to sued by the state and all his assets taken and given to her.

    her feelings and opinions are still hers regardless if it is detestable or wrong. The odd thing about this however is that so many people are up in arms about her feelings on her own kids but pray tell what many would think had she decided to abort.

    You guys need to give her a break. I know the feeling of being overwhelmed, and that seems to be her case. She doesn't have a job and she's trying to take care of 14 children on her own. I have two kids, 5 and 2, and they drive me half insane. Luckily I have my wife to help me. Now if you multiplied my kids by 7 I think I would have jumped to my doom a long time ago. She doesn't hate her kids, she's just losing the battle with no husband on her side to help. Also, I love my kids and would give my life for them but if I didn't have money to take care of them that would kill me inside.

    As for Sad Dale who wrote before me, I think you clearly are living in a fantasy land to think this can be fixed and NO, we do not owe it to her! It was that sense of entiitlement & abuse of the system that had her doing whatever she wanted without thinking of the consrquenses. Social security was not designed for this type of abuse of the system at ALL! Where do you get that idea? Why do you think directors, movie stars & singers owe her one red cent? Plus, that. Is a very small part of a huge state. Do you think a state of that size is wall to wall wealthy? I'm a native CA & we didn't get a choice in her having 8 more babies on top of full family, many w disabilities. She's not mentally capable of properly caring for those children who deserve love & proper care in a proper home. Your ideas come out of fantasyland-not reality & logic! The children need to be removed & adopted into competant families. That's their one chance at a loving normal life! Come on CA!!!! Social Services step in NOW!

    When the handouts and the big check for exclusive rights to her story didn't come in, she realized she was on her own, as are many of the rest of us. These children need rescuing and she needs some "alone" time and treatment in a mental health facility. She probably wasn't a very good mom before she had the 8 babies. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. I'd hate to know my mother ever said–even at her worst moment–that her children disgust her. It won't be long before her kids are saying, "Our mom disgusts us." I know child services can't step in until something happens. That's why when they do step in, it's often after a child has been maimed or killed. Then I'd say, it's a little late.

    The highlight of the situation is that the doctor lost the license to practice after imprenating her with all of the eggs.

    Child services cannot intervene just because a parent expresses their feelings. Perhaps it's better that she is expressing them now. It keeps her somewhat accountable. No one is going to let these kids starve or live on the street. Some people eat, some drink, use drugs etc; to lessen pain, she happens to have 14 children and if she is feeling like this, be prepared for more kids. You can be pretty sure that there are folks that are involved and have been since the beginning but you can't just take kids out of the home because a mom is crying in the bathroom out of frustration. I only had 2 kids, now grown, and I felt overwhelmed at times. Yes, I cried. Yes, I wondered how I was going to make it sometimes but I did and had plenty of support. I didn't have people complaining about my feelings. There are ppl involved. She will get help. We will see her exploiting the kids to make money.

    What did she expect? any one, including Nadya should have expected this. This is like the single woman who wants kids without a Dad on steroids. I am concerned about these kids, Not this woman's 1st amendment rights. These kids need to be cared for. How can these kids be properly taken care of if she is locking herself in a bathroom and eating to get away from them. This is as sick as having all these kids without an appropriate support system.
    I have nothing against Nadya. I just think she may not be able to appropriately take care of these children. Nasya needs to think of the kids and what is best for them. It is less selfish to let someone care for them appropriately than to keep them in a a home where they are not taken care of.
    When your bank account id overdrawn by $300, no money for food, School, or the mortgage it is time to give up the jig. Many people will come forward to take these wonderful kids and raise them with love and understanding. The very comment "I lock myself in the bathroom for hours at a time, just for the peace and quiet" tells me they are being neglected.

    Years ago, she would have been a candidate for a carnival freak show where people would pay money to take a gander at the "old woman who lived in a shoe who had so many children, she didn't know what to do". Remember that nursery rhyme? There is not much to do for this Nadya Suleman. She had no business having this many children; she can never give them the attention they need nor can she adequately care for them. She does not deserve handouts for her stupidity. The public has seen through her deceptive behavior and actual craziness and has treated her like a pariah which is justice but unfortunate for the children who basically are innocent because they can't help that they have a narcissist, self- serving and stupid mother. I agree with everyone who has stated that child services needs to intervene. It's a disgrace to see that she needs help and actually is crying out for help and the intervention needs to come from Child Protective services. The children need an advocate. Nadya, do the right thing and ask for the help. Let your children be freed to a better situation.

    This is beyond free speech. She says the children disgust her and she locks herself in a room to cry while thinking about suicide. That's not the words of a stressed out person who is just ranting...Considering she had all the kids just to be famous we have an imbalanced person who has children that could be in danger.

    This woman shouldn't have custody of one child, never mind 14. Any woman, particularly a woman with no job and no husband with a job, who already has 6 children and gets a (stupid) doctor to impregnate her with 8 more babies has to be mentally unstable. Without factoring in the money aspect, these children have to be fed and bathed and otherwise taken care of. There is no way under the sun that the children are receiving the love and care they deserve. Nadya Suleman is disgusting. These children should be given to people who can love and care for them.

    I really feel for Ms. Suleman. She sounds depressed and overwhelmed. A single mom with 14 children cannot help but feel pressured, but when eight of the kids are toddlers, things have to be beyond chaotic a good lot of the time. The fact that Ms. Suleman is honest about her feelings is good. Those of you who condemn her for admitting NORMAL human feelings need to take a hard look in the mirror. Are you helping people in need by being hypercritical and judgmental? Do you volunteer to give respite to parents like Ms. Suleman? Before lashing out, spend a few hours in her shoes.

What better way to start the ball rolling than to publicly declare she can't stand her own children and has to lock herself away from them. Her problem might lie in the fact that when she first came onto the scene pregnant with the 8, she defended the Doc and stated that she pushed for all 8 embryos to be implanted as a way to ensure that some would be viable. Now for the other part of her "scheme" in my opinion, she's apparently being looked at to participate in some kind of twisted dating show, and has scheduled TV interviews upcoming with Dr. Drew. Whether these statements are even real or if they are just yet another sick and twisted ploy for some extra publicity for her newer ventures is yet to be seen.

    Personally, I have no pity for her. She put herself in this mess knowingly, and quite frankly I don;t care how many righteous people, Jesus-freaks included, say that "we" should be more supportive to her and her situation. I have 2 natural children and a step child, and yeah, I have my monetary problems; yes, I receive Government WIC and my youngest child is on medicaid. But I also have a job, and the father has a job, and we put our children first. Aside from the aforementioned Government assistance we do not go around looking for handouts, and we also take precautions against having more children, because we know that (1) we cannot afford another and (2) it would be far too stressful. Suleman purposely went to a doctor and knowingly had IVF treatments, and once the amount of viable children was confirmed, opted to keep all of them. She was neither married nor had a steady partner, did not have a steady job, and already had 6 children she was unable to handle.

    So why am I supposed to pity her? Why should I help her? And for anyone who thinks it is that easy to get CPS involved, well, you need to come back down to reality. If I can't get my step-sons birth mother arrested or lose her visitation for her drug use, past and present, her admittance that she regrets keeping the boy, and the emotional abuse she heaps upon him, then the likelihood of Suleman's children being removed for a few words in a possibly falsified article is slim to none. I, at least, have physical evidence of my twit's idiocies...what do you have on Suleman?

She is a narsisitic, selfish, horrible parent and I think the only way those kids will not grow up to be welfare drains as adults is for them to be split up into different homes.

Kids in foster care have been virtually abandoned and ignored by everyone, while people yammer on and on about the "lack" of kids available for adoption and about how "desperate" they are to be parents.

I wonder if Jo Frost, that British nanny who knows how to get children to behave, would want to take them on? Surely Child Protective Services could classify them as a "special case" to keep them together. You can't let that many children go down the tubes because their mother is an idiot. If the doctor who helped her get pregnant has lost his license, maybe they can comb the records and find out who the father was and haul him into caring for them. He shouldn't get off scot free.

    Those people saying that she needs to be able to keep her kids are deluding themselves. Nadya is mentally disturbed; it's not just post-partum. She's admitted she wanted a large brood of kids years before she had one, for very creepy and unhealthy reasons. No. Find her poor kids some more stable home environments, and get her into a serious mental health treatment program.

    DID ANYONE TAKE THE TIME TO HEAR ABOUT HER INTERVIEW ON "HOWARD STERN" THIS WEEK!! so yes, 75 % of you probably hate him for nothing, but she was real and honest and I totally felt she was open...the media has twisted her so BAD all this time, just like this story! none of this story is real....

    some time ago, Ma's and Pa's had 14 kids and it was OK, and the Pa's was out on the fields all day, she's just lacking the Pa's...

    I had one child with my first spouse. When my daughter was in 3rd grade I remarried. My wedding gift from my new husbend was a vasectomy. I knew that I could support myself and one child and no more. He was child supporting 2 sons. We discussed all this and made a decision good for everyone. An intellegent decision. My daughter as an adult in her 20's became very ill and we are now raising 2 handicapped grandchildren asn we are ill and senior citizens. We have services that we need and work our tails off for them. I dont get plastic surgury-I even cut my own hair to give more to them. AND I AM DISABLED AND MY SPOUSE HAS ALZHEIMERS AND PARKINSONS. WE DONT CRY OE WHINE AND WE DONT LOOK BACK -ONLY FORWARD TO THEIR FUTURE. tHE BEST WE CAN GIVE THEM.EVEN IF IT MEANS WE GO WITHOUT. tHIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO PARENT.

    This is just sickening! If you can't handle your children, then why in the heck did you lay down and have more. There are tons of families that would give them a wonderful, loving home. Maybe she should look into finding families for them that won't hide in the bathroom away from them. And who is watching them while she is in there. If CPS doesn't get involved, shame on them!

    If she can't handle it, be a REAL MOM and find someone who can. Saying it is hard and she needs help is one thing. Talking about what you decided to do to yourself, going through with it then saying how is disgust you, makes you pitiful!

    I feel so bad for those children. I have six children and thank God everyday for each one of them . And yes, they do drive me crazy but that is the memories that you will remember the most. I would be happy to take one if she can't handle!

    I don't think taking the kids away from her is what she needs. She needs mental help and if we took every child away from their parent(s) who have mental health issues, the system would be overloaded with children without parents. What she needs is a mental health evaluation, some help with the daily chores of taking care of this many children and I think the doctor that did this to her should have to pay for her help and health concerns. I don't necessarily feel sorry for her because she got herself into this situation thinking she would be famous and didn't take into consideration what kind of toll this would be on her or the children. But in the long run it would be better if she had daily help provided to her and keep these kids with their mother, and get her some mental health help.

    The kids should be taken away from her for the simple reason that she just might do them harm. She's obviously an unstable moron who doesn't, even now, realize that what she did was WRONG. Having 14 kids is criminal if one does not have the means to raise them and care for them properly. She had nothing and will always have nothing because she's too stupid to have anything. I'm sure she's eligible for welfare and food stamps. She's probably too stupid to spend the little money she's given judiciously...she probably spends it on makeup. Anyway, she does not have my sympathy...the kids do...and they should be taken away ASAP before she hurts them. A mother who says that she wishes that her children had never been born is on the verge of hurting these children and that's serious business.

No haircuts, makeup, time outs for you. You did this, now you make it work.

This is the type of person prone to abandonment of her children, and even the more extreme end such as trying to sell some, or kill one in a fit of rage.

    Incidentally, the notion that Casey Anthony could be a psychopath who had a more literal "rejecting" reaction isn't exactly far-fetched, althouhg it is more speculative as she's not saying this kind of insane blather to the media.

      The Duggers also didn't have 14 kids by in vitro while on welfare and unemployed. The woman had in vitro 6 times. She spent the money she got from interviews, etc on plastic surgery. Not on the kids. Her parents have gone bankrupt trying to help her. They've also worn themselves out trying to take care of the kids for her. Her mom was raising the first 6 kids when she decided to have the last 8. Also, the Duggers are a family. The kids are older and help out. Not the case with Octomom.

No CPS cant just break down the door and haul aware her kids because I don't like her values. However, when I come across single moms who are in over their heads, know of all kinds of organizations that can help. CPS can put her in touch with community Heath organizations, church family service organizations, private foster care ... this is not her big punishment we are talking about. Its the future of a lot of innocent kids who are being raised by a Narcissistic/Borderline personality, and who in time will be our very screwed up neighbors

I am a single parent with 3 children of my own. Times are tight, but I am scraping by. I would not do these children a further disservice by taking them in when I cannot provide them with what they need.

    It is very clear this woman was never prepared to parent all of these children.

    They need to be tken away by child services and she needs to be sterilized because she will certainly have more babies she cannot take care of.

    She has amply proved she is simply addicted to the attention of having multple birth babies.

    That alone indicates a profound psychological problem that may manifest itself in her harming the children when the mental load of the reality of caring for so many children while she herself has no -go to- relief in the form of extreme amounts of media attention to help her feel any self worth.

    It's just a matter of time before her brain twists up and some of these kids start showing up injured or worse.

    Time to child welfare to act before it's too late.

    Barring sterilization,she may need to be jailed if she bets pregnant again to be forced to recieve the counseling she clearly needs.

    But all those kids need help first and RIGHT NOW.

    She sit's in the bathroom for hours while the kids are unsupervised-that qualifies as child neglect with these many kids under her care.

    @ Child Welfare Worker – What ever happened to engaging the family? Or using a reliable and valid risk and safety assessment to make sure the kids are safe?

    Wzrd1, it's not about freedom of speech.

    She says that she routinely locks herself in the bedroom and cries, thus leaving her FOURTEEN kids to fend for themselves "for hours." That's child neglect and endangerment. She says he hates the younger 8, and that they disgust her. She thinks of killing herself. And, on a much smaller note, she says she has no money to adequately care for them – but makes it clear that she doesn't want them around anyway.

    At what point do YOU think it's okay for the state to come in to protect someone's children? Is it OK to take the remaining one after she's killed the other 13? Or would that be infringing on her rights?

    Fertility treatments should be outlawed. Period. The world is seriously overpopulated and on the verge of environmental collapse. If people that are not natually fertile for whatever reason don't want to adopt then they don't truly want children badly enough. There is something very arrogant about insisting the children come from your own defective genes.

    If fertility treatments are outlawed there will also be no more women abusing their wombs for notoriety and/or a realtiy show – nor more Octumoms or Kates and others of their kind. Those poor exploited children!

      Although I am appalled by most of the comments sanctioning sterilization (brings up thoughts of Nazi Germany and a futuristic dystopia), I think it is justifiable for certain felons and the mentally unstable. This woman clearly should have been stopped.

    I listened to her on Howard Stern the other day, and based on that quite candid interview, I find this article to be questionable. I have a feeling a lot has been taken out of context. While she DOES obviously have serious mental issues, so do a lot of other people who are raising children. Based on the Stern interview, she seems to take her role in her children's upbringing very seriously. She may not always make the best decisions, but it does appear that she loves them and thinks about how she's raising them. Although she's got a lot of press for being a bad mom, but believe me, have some amount of nuttiness does not warrant CPS intervention when there are babies dying from drugs, and neglect, and physical abuse. There are babies being starved and molested. I mean, I know she's a nutcase, but put it in perspective.

      Pollisa: "While she DOES obviously have serious mental issues, so do a lot of other people who are raising children". Maybe, but most other people don't have 14 kids. She could barely support the ones she had then added 8 more. I often thought they should have put the last 8 up for adoption before they got old enough to miss their mother because she did not and probably won't ever have the wherewithal to support them. Sorry, but some people (like this case) should not be allowed to breed.

    I feel very sorry for her. Explain to me why a crazy couple on TV can have a show called 19 and Counting (which is glorifying the brood-mare status of the wife!) yet all the Right to Lifers out there have totally demonized this woman for "giving life"? If all those right to lifer hypocrites would actually live their empty rhetoric and send her 5$ every month (less that most of you spend on a meal at mcdonalds) you would actually be "supporting" life rather than just talking about how you want babies to all be born. The public reaction to her children (really, does it matter HOW they were conceived? Right to lifers normally argue that ANY life is important) is the perfect example for why abortion should be legal. Everyone loves a baby, but no one wants to take care of it.

      Kay, I dont understand your rigorous defense...this women already had i think 6 kids. Without a job, a support system, or anything that would warrant her considering additional children, she went to an in vitro clinic and ended up with 8 more babies.
      Her story made headlines for a little while and she was able to make some money on it. Now the money is gone, she still has 14 mouths to feed, no job, no income, no support system, and in short order no house. And on top of that, she is now openly talking about how she hates being a mother to all of these children and they disgust her (please note kay, none of this is 3rd party heresay...its all facts...from her mouth).
      I dont think there is anyone in America less fit to have 14 people depending on them. These babies would do 100x better in a new home.
      If you can still defend her, logically, I would be impressed.

      Obviously we can't "vote" on that stuff. But there are far too many people like you who think that third-hand hearsay posted online and with no context is the same thing as "true". Do I think this woman needs mental health treatment? Yes, I do. But do I think there's any evidence in this article that she's a danger to her kids so that they should be taken away? No, I don't.

      There's a tangential issue to the issue you raise, namely, regulation of the number of embryos implanted. We tried for 10 years to conceive. We finally had twins on our third round of in-vitro with our second egg donor. Many countries have laws regulating the number of implantable embryos, but had the US had such, we might not have had any children. On our last round, we had 6 more or less viable embryos that had to be frozen. 4 survived the thaw and were implanted. One never took. 6 weeks later, we lost the triplet. Nearly half-way into the pregnancy, we were told one twin probably wouldn't make it. He did but was extremely small. We went from six to barely 2. Now, of course, we didn't already have a litter of 6 and I wasn't a single mother...

      It's not about what you personally think of Ms. Suleman, or the choices she has made, it IS about 14 young children, some, if not many, with special needs, who need to be given the best possible chance for a healthy life. While as parents we all get frustrated, and while I can't fathom having 14 kids to care for, her statements are NOT OK. For those defending her sentiments, yes, she can say what she wants, but how would you feel if your parents made statements like these in a public forum where they can live on indefinitely? Oh, your parents probably wouldn't say things like this to a national magazine, perhaps because even when parents feel frustrated, they generally don't tell the world they hate and are disgusted by their babies, or that their children are out-of-control animals. I do have sympathy, even for her, but she needs to step up and try to figure out what she needs to do going forward, make the tough choices, and give these children the life they deserve. She doesn't have to permanently relinquish her rights, or even put her children up for adoption, but she could consider allowing other people to take temporary custody of the children until she can get herself well and stable, both mentally and financially. I bet there are a lot of folks out there who would be absolutely thrilled to help give these children a temporary home for the short or long-term. I would certainly have a lot more respect for her putting the children first in that way. If only for the fact that as a mother I can't fathom hating my own children, I do believe she loves them, although she is obviously overwhelmed. I pray for her to find the strength to go forward and do what's best for her children.

      I am sorry but it seems you do not have all the facts. She WANTED to have more kids after she already had 6. She had received monetary help and she would still have money if she didn't spend it on having plastic surgery. I am a mother of 3 and I have never even thought of my kids as disgusting and i have never regretted having them. They truly are my world and make me happy. And she is even talking about suicide and hiding from them in a bathroom. She needs mental help. I don't think the kids should be taken away but i do think she needs mental help and if she is found to be ok after then they should still keep checking in on the kids until all gets better. But, as I was saying, she already had 6 kids, some with problems, no partner to help her with them and she still decided to go for more. Seems she wanted to be in this situation though I am sure she pictured it quite differently.

      while I appreciate the thoughtfulness and General sentiment of your post (non-judgemental) there are some key issues we diverge about: 1) "impossible odds" = your house is on fire and there is a tornado down the street, Not: I have 6 kids (1 ? with special needs) so lemme more than double that with 8 more, with no regard as to how they will be emotionally or financially taken care of (negligent choices)
      2) yes as a parent, it's not unusual to feel overwhelmed....It IS UNUSUAL to go on record in an interview and say "I hate the babies, they disgust me." .....which leads me to disagree with your observation that "it does mean she doesn't love them" ...
      3) Some peoples reaction to this latest interview (myself included) is just another example of what people have been saying since this first broke: how can one person give 14 children the attention/affection/care/education/financial support required? Realistically, how many hours a day do you think she spends with any individual child??!

I do feel very sorry for those kids. I can only hope they aren't train wrecks by the time they get out of that house.

    If she wants to commit suicide, I'd say, "Go for it." The kids would be far better off without her. There are a lot of caring people in this country who can't have children and would give them a lot more love than this stupid, attention seeking woman ever will. The last thing you wan to do though, is get CPS involved. They are worthless and often corrumpt. But there are other decent, legitimate agencies that could oversee the protection and care for these kids.

    i feel bad for the kids not only for them having her as their mother but also for the situation she's put them in. i would be shocked if any of them grew up to be totally normal without any psychological problems. the kids are endangered in her care and need to be taken from her and put into foster homes where they'll be better cared for. Octomom is selfish and reckless and needs to do what's best for the kids – have CPS put them in foster care.

    She just did a lengthy interview on Howard Stern yesterday, and aside from being very annoying, she said that she loved having the kids and that she lived her life for them. She also said that she has no paid help and doesn't take one cent of welfare. It's hard to say if that's all true, but her answers were very different from the ones listed in the article.

    They disgust you? They are innocent children who didn't ask for the f'd up life you have brought them into. You should be disgusted by yourself.
