I haven’t seen anything mentioned here on the board about a situation playing out here in Australia at the moment, but if I am flogging a dead dingo, then I’m sure someone will be along to enlighten me soon.
A couple with a two year old child were recieving fertility treatment, and as a result, the woman gave birth to quadruplets 10 months ago.
Fine. Multiple births are a relatively common side effect of such treatments. I don’t have a problem, per se, with that.
However, the couple apparently sought further treatment when the quads were only 7 months old, because the woman is now three months pregnant…with another set of quads. :eek:
Medical astonishment aside (it IS an incredibly rare occurence), who in their right fucking mind would go back for help to have another baby when they already have five babies who need pretty constant care? And what was the freakin’ Doctor who authorized such treatment thinking?
Geez, the first quads were born extremely prematurely (and the long-term effects of that haven’t been found out yet) and this stupid couple are at it again to bring another four babies into this world with probable disabilites, let alone the social, emotional and financial problems that will ensue.
The couple’s justification was that they wanted a big family for religious reasons. :rolleyes:
If someone can find me a link that doesn’t need registration (like the Sydney Morning Herald etc), I’d be eternally grateful. I’d offer to have your baby, but I’m too old and the world has enough it seems.
