'I wonder if she was married if people would have so many problems with her having this many kids. I come from a large family and we were all cared for and loved very much. There used to be a time when women had lots of children and it was ok. I agree we are in different times but if child services felt the kids were safe there and have not taken them then people should just leave her alone.
I believe is she were married and having this many kids and still needing government assistance, people would be even MORE ticked off! Then you would have 2 people who would have had the bone-headed idea that it was a good thing to bring more children in to the world when you can't afford the ones you already have.
There was a time when people had enormous families, but they were "stair stepped", never in a litter of 8 at once. Those families also had the help and support of extended family members- another thing that seems to be missing here.
As for CPS thinking the kids are ok ,so we should just leave her alone- what kind of rock do you live under? Child Protective Services can only remove children who are in IMMINENT danger. As long as octonut keeps a roof over their heads and food in the house, CPS won't do jack until one of the kids is seriously injured. By then it will be too late. The kids have already suffered emotional abuse, just as a result of their "mother" thinking she is a celebrity and parading herself and the kids in front of video cameras. Have you seen the older two? They are embarassed as all get out and try to get away from the camera, yet her majesty keeps dragging them back in to the shots. She needs to be stopped. And hopefully Gloria Allred and Paul Petersen will be the ones to do it.
