I have to say i agree the state shouldnt give this women any help we all know she more than likely gets WIC,Medical,and food stamps. She needs to stop thinking of having more kids for us to support and go to WORK that will get her mind off having more kids once she has to provide for the ones she has.It makes me angry that we as tax payers will have to support her children if i wanted more children i would have had more....

The Quintuplets in Canada received a warm welcome from the people and all survived the ordeal. What a challenge, magnificent.
Wasn't that back in the 1950's?

God Bless them. Franz Schubert came from a family of 15 and he was the youngest. The magnificent music he wrote lives on forever. May she be blessed with the burden she has undertaken and have the courage and resources to raise them. I think Ben Franklin also came from a large family. They will need the support of friends and family.
It will take a village to give her the help she needs.
How many centuries ago was that?

Give me a break, you probably dropped out in the tenth grade, not even as good as a second grade dropout who has eight more years at the car wash than you. You could at least have said "I have AN MA." Your bad grammar gives you away.

We are insane for paying for this...
I agree. They and the ones who aided this are scum. And yet we let and encourage more illegals to come here. In my state we encourage them to go to California. You like them there. Especially if they are pregnant and have to get government aid.

This woman committed a capital offense against humanity if my opinion.

I'm wondering how big this womans house is? How many children per room? Who is going to watch all 14 children while she's in school? She better get a team of people to watch all her kids IF she plans to go back to school. I'm just so blown away by this. I just wish her luck. How she's doing it? I don't know???????

The MD who implanted this mentally ill woman should be responsible for all of the cost of these children. He should also have disciplinary action taken against him. Take those children away for her now & give them a chance of a normal life.Does anyone know the name of the fertility MD who participated in this? Make no mistake, we have already paid for her other 6 children & now the cost for the other 8. I estimate the cost that the tax payers are paying now for each baby to be in the ICN at about $300,000 per day. California can't even send out tax returns & now the tax payers have to shelter this?
I am a nurse who works long hard hours to support my daughter. From a medical stand point, this is malpractice...this never should have happen. From a human stand point this is tragic.

Actually, I am from Reno,NV. This fertility MD/Group would be strung up if this had happened in Nevada. I feel so bad for my neighbors in California who have more of a direct hit from this.

I believe it was back in the 30s or 40s and the state took them away from the parents for quite some time because the parents couldn't afford to take care of them.. See "The Dionne Quintuplets"

Doesn't Cal Med/Cal Welfare require identification of the Daddy before payments? Can one get Welfare withOUT identifying the father? So who is Mr. S. Donor?

Yep - And there is a separate check for the autistic child, and that is known as SSI. That idiot is getting a lot of money from the state of California.

What an unfortunate situation. I pray for all of those kids. Hopefully there is a group out there that will embrace the situation and help out. It doesn't look like she's building much of a fan club in Whittier or for that matter the USA. She would have been better off with six. And, that's a lot to handle. She made the choice to have more kids and I'm sure she knew the consequences of multiple births. Although I feel it was a bad choice on her part, I'm less worried about paying for her kids than I am bailing out the banks, auto industry and millions of illegals.
