Octuplet Mom Nearing Pay Day — What???

Feb 2, 2009 6:27pm

She has hired a public relations firm.  There are reports that she is being offered book and movie deals.  And she is yet to even leave the hospital. Nadya Suleman, the mother of the 8 babies born last week, has not, according to her publicist, decided what to do next other than take care of the children.  A public relations representative described her new client as "the most sought after mom in the world right now." The grandmother of the newborns gave an interview with the Los Angeles Times.  She said the mother of the octuplets has long had the life long goal of having children and that the implantation of embryos was in the hopes of having "just one more girl."  She is quoted as saying her daughter, "is not evil, but she is obsessed with children. She loves children, she is very good with children, but obviously she overdid herself." The story here has of course raised a lot of ethical questions.  First and foremost should this many embryos ever have been implanted? But there is now the question about profit.  Does the mother have the right to reap the money that’s thrown at her feet in return for her story?
