MY MOM, AN ONLY CHILD, HATED IT. ECTOPIC PREGNANCIES ENDED THE CHANCE OF SIBLINGS. MOM FELT MORE ALONE WHEN HER PARENTS DIED, SHE HAD FIVE KIDS BUT NOT THE SAME EFFECT. I DO KNOW HOW MOM FELT BUT I CANNOT COMPARE HER TO THE 8 BABIES MOM. I SAY WE NEED TO GET OFF OUR SELF RIGHTEOUSNESS BUTS. WHAT MATTERS IS SHE NEEDS HELP AND THE BABIES NEED PRAYERS, FOOD AND CARE. IT DOESN'T MATTER ABOUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES.I HEAR THE CLICKING TONGUES CONDEMNING HER AND THE CROWD READY TO THROW THE FIRST STONE. IS THIS SOCIETYSO QUICK TO CONDEMN THIS INCIDENT BUT ABORT 50 MILLION BABIES WITHOUT BATTING AN EYE? LEAVE IT ALONE! IT ISN'T AN IDEAL SITUATION BUT THAT DOES NOT EXCUSE OUR ACTIONS. QUIT TRYING TO FIGURE THIS ONE OUT. THIS IS BETWEEN HER AND HER MAKER. YOU OUT THERE IN TV LAND,LEAVE HER AND THE BABIES ALONE.

i judge this woman because taxpayers are going to be footing the bill of the medical care and who knows what else. i also believe her doctor made an unethical decision to even continue ivf treatments. she already had six children and there are always the possiblity of multiples. also considering at least one child with autism and possibly rumors of more...adding 8 more children to the mix cannot be benefical to caring for a child or children with autism. luckily these children appear to be thriving now, but with multiples, there are often risks and questions for the future. i never said she doesn't love her children. i am sure the gosselin and duggar parents receive their fair share of criticism.

I think she is doing the best she can. Her other kids seem happy and not unloved or neglected and I am sure with her family and friends help she will take care of these kids just the same. I would rather see a mother who loves her kids vs a mother who leaves her baby in a box to die somewhere. Why do you judge this woman? I know many friends who paid for ivf and it is not an easy thing to do and it does not always take or something can go wrong and they miscarry. So I believe these babies are destined to be here and why is this woman any different from those gosselin kids or those crazy duggar parents? Live and let live and just donate your old baby stuff to help out. what else r u going to do with it.

i don't want tax payers being responsible for these births in any way. also, her face screams plastic surgery to me. where would she get money for that or the manicured nails in the clip? with no job, 6 kids at home, 8 in the hospital, she has time and money for that?! three of the previous 6 children are on SSI. one for autism. i work with children with autism and there is no way having 8 more children will be beneficial to the care he needs.

I don't think there should be any news on this woman! Leave her alone withher 14 children. Maybe she had them because she thought she would get her own show. I just hope that doesn't happen. However, I do feel terrible for her poor children who will suffer.

Is the state looking into the fact that she has so many kids living in a 3 bedroom house? I thought that was child abuse. If I was to rent a 3 bedroom apartment your only allowed 6 people.

poor kids, poor parents. I wish this woman would just go away.Her mother came out yesterday (I think) and talked the mad shit about this woman. It was only a matter of time for the truth to come out.

My heart feels so bad for them. They are pawns in their mother's (should I even call her that?) ridiculous cry for attention.

the baby's didn't move hardly at all. is that typical for babies born this early? they look beautiful, but when the mom's hand was touching them and you saw how small they were it was frightening. and the mom seems to have no concerns, almost as if she's medicated into la-tee-da land.

i'm so annoyed with the today show for giving this woman any sort of publicity and air time... it seems as though thats all she wanted.

the babies are beautiful and i'm glad they are doing well. HOWEVER, i wish this woman would go away. her story, her motives, all of it is so suspect. glamorizing it does not seem right at all. this is not a joyous story.
