There has been so much media and public scrutiny, criticism and interest in Nadya Suleman, who they insultingly call the “Octo-Mom”. She is a single mother with 6 other children who has recently given birth to octuplets(that is, 8 babies at once) thru reproductive technology.That’s a grand total of 14 kids. On top of that, her home is in danger of being foreclosed.
I have to say I am shocked, and even horrified,at the malicious and hateful way the majority of people are treating her. They are spewing such cruel, vile, and insensitive things, hurling insults, telling her she “should be sterilized” and the like.They have called Children’s Services on her, vilified, criticized, judged, and condemned her to no end. She has become the most-hated public figure, the most mocked,and the scapegoat of the moment.It’s like a free-for-all where everyone gangs up on her. It shows the ugliest side of humanity.
I think it’s horrible. She is a person, and she has feelings. What business is it of anyone’s how many kids she has; what gives us the right to slam her? To kick her while she’s down? The poor woman has NO support at ALL when she needs it the most; even her own parents have turned their back on her! I can’t help but feel sorry for her. How can people be so hateful and so mean? What has she ever done to them? People should just mind their own business and leave her alone.
Even if you don’t “approve” of the choices she has made, I don’t think she “asked” you, nor needs your “approval”. It’s her life to live as she sees fit,and at least she values the lives of her babies and refused “selective” abortion. At least give her credit for that, and she loves kids. At least she’s open to offering new life and doesn’t selfishly limit her family size and hasn’t bought into society’s Culture of Death mentality to contracept,abort and limit the number of kids God chooses to bless you with.
I feel so badly for her. How can she not have a nervous breakdown with nothing but constant criticism and vile thrown at her?(not to mention the precarious situation her newborns are in, still in NICU for months, and now even the hospital has threatened to NOT release them into her custody!) She’s all alone here and in danger of losing her home and her kids, yet no one seems to care. Her entire life is falling apart and crashing in.It has to be the worst moment of her life. They seem intent on destroying her life. Society IS hateful to large families(I have had this first-hand myself!) and it worries me that she will crack with the pressure and the ongoing constant hatred aimed at her. Will these hard-hearted hateful people not be happy until she finally commits suicide under the strain, or what? Is that what they’re hoping for? I can’t even imagine the stress the poor woman must be going thru right now,and all alone with no support.It’s inhuman what people are doing to her, how they’re treating her,and what they’re putting her thru….
I can only pray for Nadya Suleman and her children. Pray that God comforts and upholds her during this period of intense stress, persecution and attack. She has even received death threats! I can’t believe how heartless people can be. I pray for her and her family. I pray she gets the support she needs(both financially, emotionally and physically, as that’s just too much work for one person, no matter who they are!) I pray God carries her and her children thru this and that they can remain an intact family, and in their home. I pray they can weather the storm and come thru this stronger. I pray she can hold on and try her best to ignore the haters. I pray God gives her strength to overcome. All things must pass. I just hope she survives. The criticism and hatred have most likely already broken her spirit and turned her life upside-down. She needs peace.She needs to be left alone. I pray Social Services leaves her alone. I pray she doesn’t lose her home, her children, her family.I pray people will stop being so heartless and cruel.Sometimes I feel I am the only person out there who cares and is praying for her….
