Nadya Suleman, the California breeding machine aka “Octomom”, will be sucking off of the public teat for years.
“The Suleman octuplets’ medical costs have not been disclosed, but in 2006, the average cost for a premature baby’s hospital stay in California was $164,273, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Eight times that equals $1.3 million.
For a single mother, the cost of raising 14 children through age 17 ranges from $1.3 million to $2.7 million, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.”
The State throws our money down the toilet to babysit people who are otherwise capable of taking care of themselves, but are too irresponsible and lazy.
Quite frankly, I don’t care how many or how little the number of children anyone decides to have, as long as I don’t have to support them through a bloated, overtaxed welfare system. The government won’t subsidize abortions or birth control, but it forces us to support the hell out of illigitimate kids and parents who are as allergic to contraceptives as they are job hunting. Especially obscene is the fact that an unemployed welfare mother decided to have 8 additional children to the 6 she already had. She needed birth control, not artificial fertilization.
Work harder, people. Millions of welfare recipients depend on you.
