Should the OCTUPLET MOM be FORCIBLY STERILIZED?

    

     Nadya Suleman was somehow allowed to have in vitro fertilization resulting in octuplets even though she already had 6 kids and no source of income.  In watching interviews with her it didn't take me long to realize a couple of things: 

1-The woman is obviously insane and as such there should be a low threshold for removing her children from her care.

2- Her fertility specialist should lose his license.  

3-Her plastic surgeon should probably lose his license as well.  (btw Who paid for her plastic surgery? )

This all got me to thinking about the future for this woman and her family.  And the obvious concept that she WILL almost certainly attempt to get pregant once again.  So the question is this

Should the OCTUPLET MOM be FORCIBLY STERILIZED?

Personally I say YES!

 

 

YES! When she can't afford the children she already has the government has an obligation to stop her insane desire to procreate forever!

NO! She should be allowed to have as many kids as she wants even if the taxpayers have to foot the bill while allowing children to be raised by an obviously insane woman!
