One thing is certain; the birth of these infamous octuplets sure has spurred on some debate. Today’s Yahoo! poll asks, “Do fertility clinics need stricter guidelines?” The majority seem to think so (89% in fact).
Had the mother of these eight babies had a ‘reduction,’ this story would never have made the news. Having said that, I think that reproductive freedom is intended to convey the message that a woman may have as many or as few children as she wishes. It seems to me, however, that she may have ‘as few’, but her right to have many is in question.by
