yesterday's Today interview

Watched NBC's Today yesterday and that mother of 8 was interviewed, part of a larger interview to be broadcast on Tuesday. She was trying for all the world to sound rational.
She admitted that the fertility Dr. who implanted her knew that she already had 6 children because he had been the one to do them as well. And she said that the biological father of all of her children was the same person. Makes me wonder if it's actually the doctor?

No matter, when the medical community finds out who did the "deeds" I think the doctor will be in big trouble, I hope he finds his license pulled but if not then he should be totally blacklisted at least.

After the interveiw aired they asked a pyschologist what she thought of the woman and the psychologist said the mother needs serious counseling. What an understatment! I feel so sorry for the children who are gong to bear the brunt of this stigma. How traumatized do you think they will be? She said her own relationship with her mother was dysfunctional, and now she expects to have a normal loving relationship with each of her 14 children? On what planet?

Well, enough of that. At least the story gives us something to talk about...and maybe it will result in some kind of legislation or control over medical ethics. What ever happened to "first, do no harm"?
