Whatever You Do Kids, DON'T Drink The Kool*Aid!...

Great. Now, thanks to Jen over at MS Strength , I have visions of Jonestown dancing in my head!

I'm talking about Jen's latest comment on the previous post here on CHEESE, and her reference to religious groups DELIBERATELY using fertility drugs to populate their groups...and, unfortunately, she DOES know of what she speaks. Sigh..check out her website on the link up there if you don't believe me...oh, and also go to her site just in case you came to THIS blog to read about Multiple Sclerosis, only to discover I am currently in a rant about THIS issue in California and distracted from the MS world!


OK, Jen...now, thanks to you, I've got an unhealthy, creepy interest in the California mother who gave birth to octuplets this past week. Which, by the way, there are NO known births of octuplets documented that HAVEN'T been caused by the use of fertility drugs or in vitro fertilization (but most likely fertility drugs...I so want to believe no doctor in their right mind would implant EIGHT fertilized embryos in ANY woman at one time via in vitro fertilization). And the "unhealthy, creepy interest" has to do with WHY on (this over-populated) earth ANY woman (in THEIR right mind), who has already birthed SIX children PRIOR to the new octuplets, would agree/want/desire EIGHT FRICKIN' MORE?!?! Even ONE more, to be quite frank. Unless...well...unless, and I'm just speculating here (due to creepy, unhealthy interest) one was "baby milling" them for reasons OTHER than that innate desire many women have to raise a family (and thank gawd that *desire* somehow genetically SKIPPED me personally!).


Can you spell C-U-L-T here, peeps? I mean, even the Catholic Church, known for it's past *every sperm is sacred* policy (stolen directly from Monte Python), now suggests REPRODUCTIVE RESPONSIBILITY...not birth control, but RESPONSIBILITY. Even the church known for its prolific policy on propagation thinks maybe...just maybe...we might be over-populating the world just a tad bit (this information comes directly from a recent conversation with a Catholic priest, while discussing the exorcism requested by someone I was "investigating"...but I digress...it may only be HIS personal views and I shant say more, lest I divulge protected HIPAA information!).


Really? Is there ANY good reason to deliberately and knowingly bring FOURTEEN children into an already over-populated-and-lacking-resources-to-FEED-society OTHER than absolute irresponsibility or GREED in this day and age??? Unless...unless...and just creepy-unhealthy-interest speculation here...you have other "plans" for the children. And that is taking the idea of *planned parenthood* (not to be confused with the agency known as Planned Parenthood) in a totally WRONG direction.


All I can do is shout a warning to those EIGHT, little sets of developing ears (and to the SIX sets of already little developed ears in this alleged family)..."IF OFFERED, DON'T DRINK THE KOOL*AID, KIDS. IT JUST MIGHT KILL YOU"...
**Editorial Update 5:30PM**
This just in on the wire via ABC News: (And I plagiarize) It appears the grandmother of the octuplets (the mother's mother) filed for bankruptcy in March 2008, claiming her spouse (the alleged grandfather of the octuplets) was in Iraq working as a contractor. The plot thickens...
And, I just received a phone call (again, in outrage) from my friend/mentor wondering if the mother of the octuplets has issues with "hoarding" as a possible motive for accumulating so many children? I'm choosing to SPELL the condition "whored-ing" versus "hoarding", but that's because I've developed my OWN condition surrounding this story: Creepy, Unhealthy Interest or "CUI"!!

Do those 8 children have a father in the household or was it a sperm donar? Sounds like a wacky household...perhaps the kids should drink the Kool aid????? Alright, that was mean spirited of me. Truely I wish the best for all those innocent children...Can I offer their mother Kool Aid?

Jen said...

Psssst...Go over to Facebook, you kook! We're having a part-tae! Well not really, but strange things are going on, including strange 25 things about me lists (which I hate, but have done. You are also being summoned...)

Be back to read this post shortly with my name LINKED scarily to my own site...

Please stop luring me here when you know I have online addictions...LMAO....

I can't quite remember the last time I had Kool-Aid. Hummmm, you're making me think about Grape Kool-Aid. I had liked that one.

I too am astounded by this story. I know first hand how much kids suck (sorry parents) and I can't imagine having one right now, let alone eight. There is also the cost. How can anyone afford that? We live in a crazy world.

Kelley said...

Have you ever heard of the Duggars? They have EIGHTEEN kids, all produced WITHOUT the aid of fertility drugs. You should definitely Goggle them if you want your blood pressure to go up.

I've had a creepy fascination for this family since the "14 Kids and Pregnant Again" special on Discovery Health a few years ago. They only live about 1.5 hours from me in their compound that doubles as the Church of the Holy Basement.

I am even more appalled at the case of this CA woman. The fertility specialists should be held accountable for this.

It all makes my head hurt. That is why GH & I chose to be child-free. Others should follow! Argh!

Peace,
Kelley

Did you know that someone came here via "Brain Cheese: Search results for naked clown"?...UMMMMM....

And you still haven't listed the 25. I double-dare ya.....Hehhehehe.....

Webster said...

Jen, out of pure curiosity (Is curiosity ever pure?), I'd like to know 25 strange things about the BrainCheese too. So BC, whenever you're ready...

First, Kool Aid was invented in the state I live in -- not too sure how proud I am of that, I don't even drink it. And second, I suspected from my first hearing this story that she wanted to ride the wave of all these shows of people with a bajillion kids. Shows that irritate the crud out of me because I did foster care and know how many unwanted/abused/neglected children are out there that could use a good home instead of people trying to see how many kids they can make. Why didn't they adopt or do foster care instead?! I can't wrap my head around it...
