The Single Mother with 14 childrenBy John Kim | January 30th, 2009
The world is in crisis, we are having a population explosion, and it’s wreaking havoc on our environment. Did you know that in the 1950’s there were only about 2.5 billion people on this earth. Out of all the millenniums of human history we were left with only 2.5 billion people in the 1950’s. In only 60 years from that time we are now stuck with 6.5 billion people, and that number keeps growing. With this many people on earth, we are crowding out every other living species, human suffering has increased, and because of our lust for energy we are warming up this planet like a microwave. I’m afraid for this planets survival, so when I hear a story about a women (Nadia Sulaiman) from Bellflower California having 8 babies, with 6 children prior, I get real upset. I feel this women should have no support from anyone, and should live with her children in a homeless shelter. Irresponsibility such as this should not be rewarded.
Nadia Sulaiman had given birth at Kaiser Permenente Bellflower Medical Center, and it took a team of 46 doctors to deliver these babies in 5 minutes. This is only the second time in history that a women had given birth to 8 babies, so yes this was a miracle. But of course this is not natural, because humans can’t naturally have more than a few babies, even having twins naturally is very rare. Nadia Sulaiman took fertility drugs, which is a conscious choice on her part, knowing that she already had six kids at home, knowing that she was a single parent, and knowing that she lived with her parents in a 3 bedroom house. I shake my head at her, and if I could see her, I might project some saliva all over her face. imagining I was talking to Nadia Sulaiman “Take that stupid, you don’t deserve 14 children”.
The reality is that raising even 1 child is a very expensive undertaking. In fact I went to this website that has a baby calculator (link) and I place in her criteria.
The year is 2009, she lives in a city in California, between her and her parents they probably bring in no more than 64k (64k split between 6 other children), she’s a single parent, and I assume no college for these kids. So when I get the results it comes to this.
It will cost roughly around $289,746 dollars, not accounting for inflation to raise 1 child, multiply that by 14, and you get about $4,056,444 to raise these children with only the basic necessities? If you include a quality childhood, than you are looking at a cost way over 4 million. Without any financial assistance, these kids are looking at a life of gang banging and prostitution. Good Luck single mother of 14, I hope you suffer for your sins.
Now that we know the cost of raising these kids, it’s time to consider another hurdle for this mother. America is in it’s worst financial situation in decades, and it wasn’t like before. Before there would be thousands of well wishers coming to the doorsteps to women who have these freakish births. You think with the economy the way it is, people will be donating to this family? I’ll be surprised if people don’t throw eggs at her doorstep. I just wish she moved out to a farm somewhere, at least this way her family has a chance to survive.
So I was thinking this, this women, knowing she already had 6 children, was probably assuming that if she makes news with 8 kids, that there will be financial support just waiting for her. Maybe Nadia sulaiman lost her job, and is looking at this news making opportunity to cash in. I understand this mentality because these are desperate times. She probably went to Mexico to get herself some fertility treatment, and now that she hit the jackpot with 8 babies, she will live happily ever after. I mean I heard recently a guy was trying to sell his liver on craigslist. If a person would go to those lengths to make money, why wouldn’t this women be the same way. I think she got greedy, but I hope it back fires on her. I hope no one helps her out, and she suffer for the mistakes she’s made in life. I’m very angry about this because there’s too many people on this earth, and millions of those people are left hungry and on the streets. What right does Nadia Sulaiman have to bring 14 lives into this crowded planet, and have people giving her money from left to right. Let’s help those who really need to be helped, who are surviving to even stay alive. I mean if this women’s family is left homeless, the children will go to an orphanage, and they will probably have a better life with some other family. I know I sound a bit heartless, but I’m actually very kind. This is just the realist in me coming out.
*UPDATE: As of 01/30/09 5:00pm, it was released that the Nadia Sulaiman is an Iraqi, and has had a history of filing for bankruptcy. Apparently her decision to have 14 children is based on her religious beliefs, so stupid. Gives more reason to not help that family out.
