The mother of octuplets, whose story has sparked controversy around the world, rejects suggestions that she may not be able to care adequately for all 14 of her children and that her decisions have been selfish.Ann Coulter is right to be out there condemning single motherhood, it really is starting to become the greatest threat to this planet. It's that serious. This chick always "wanted to be a mom". Did she not realize that was ALREADY a mom! 6 TIMES OVER! AND living with her grandmother at that! Why do I have a feeling that some rich, liberal is going to see this story, feel sorry for this idiot and hook her up with a 20-bedroom mansion or something. Better yet, I can see one of those free home reality TV shows coming to Suleman's "aid" really soon, any wonder she's on a press blitz? Ok, maybe she's not that dumb after all.
"I'm providing myself to my children," Nadya Suleman told NBC in her first interview. "I'm loving them unconditionally, accepting them unconditionally, everything I do. I'll stop my life for them and be present with them and hold them and be with them. And how many parents do that? I'm sure there are many that do, but many don't. And that's unfortunate. And that is selfish."
NBC's "Today Show" ran a portion of the interview Friday.
Suleman, a 33-year-old single mother, had the octuplets through fertility treatments, while already having six young children and no clear source of income.
"I know I'll be able to afford them when I'm done with my schooling. If I were just sitting down, watching TV and not being as determined as I am to succeed and provide a better future for my children, I believe that would be considered to a certainly degree selfish," she said.She said she plans to go back to college to pursue a degree in counseling, NBC reported. She also said all 14 children have the same biological father, a sperm donor whom she described as a friend.
