Call me hard hearted, but I would not donate money to that woman. It would be much better if the state took those babies away from her and placed them in homes where they can be cared for properly. She's clearly not able to care for 14 children, donations or not.

The supposedly bogus site can be a scam or loaded with virii for all I care....I won't be visiting (and might harbor an admittedly nasty thought that anybody that does....with the idea of contributing.... picks one up and has to spend days cleaning up their computer

Contribute to her family? Thanks, but I already am through my taxes whether I want to or not.

It sounds like somebody found a way to cash in. Stuff like this makes me think they'd probably be better off in other homes. Things like this make me think we need to find a way to keep certain people from making any more kids...

Amen.. It bothers me that ANYONE can become a parent. As it is now, there is too much scum out there crapping in our collective gene pool.

Too many people mindlessly pass along their DNA, and then leave it to others to care for/clean up their mess, too selfish to see that it might have been in the best interest of society and of their offspring to have never conceived in the first place.

If everybody donates a bit of cash to her then hopefully she will stay off welfare.

Would that not be true for everybody on wlefare?
Maybe we should all just financially adopt another family to get them off the roles?

Octomom's parents are behind in their mortgage. They're in arrears over $23,000. Oh, but let's have 8 more babies!

Makes you wonder how many mortgage payments could've been made from what she paid the fertility clinic and prenatal care, doesn't it?
