Even before the 33-year-old single, unemployed mother gave birth to octuplets last month, she had been caring for her six other children with the help of $490 a month in food stamps, plus Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters. The public aid will almost certainly be increased with the new additions to her family.
Also, the hospital where the octuplets are expected to spend seven to 12 weeks has requested reimbursement from Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program, for care of the premature babies, according to the Los Angeles Times. The cost has not been disclosed.
Word of the public assistance has stoked the furor over Suleman's decision to have so many children by having embryos implanted in her womb.
"It appears that, in the case of the Suleman family, raising 14 children takes not simply a village but the combined resources of the county, state and federal governments," Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote in Wednesday's paper. He called Suleman's story "grotesque."
On the Internet, bloggers rained insults on Suleman, calling her an "idiot," criticizing her decision to have more children when she couldn't afford the ones she had and suggesting she be sterilized.

Octuplet Mom Says She’s Done Having ChildrenThe woman who gave birth to octuplets last month says she is done having children. Nadya Suleman says her eight babies are a sign from God that she has enough children. (Feb. 11)
"It's my opinion that a woman's right to reproduce should be limited to a number which the parents can pay for," Charles Murray wrote in a letter to the Los Angeles Daily News. "Why should my wife and I, as taxpayers, pay child support for 14 Suleman kids?"
She was also berated on talk radio, where listeners accused her of manipulating the system and being an irresponsible mother.
"From the outside you can tell that this woman was playing the system," host Bryan Suits said on the "Kennedy and Suits" show on KFI-AM. "You're damn right the state should step in and seize the kids and adopt them out

Everytime I read a story about this moron, my blood boils. There are so many parents that can't have children and have a hard time adopting.

She's a greedy, selfish, hungry bitch who sees nothing but dollar signs and she'll rake up the money telling her story, when there are much more newsworthy stories to be told. She's a disgrace.

I don't have praise for her - I have absolute disgust and contempt for her. She's an embarrassment to all women and to our country. She is showing such a poor example and someone should have put her in her place years agol

I have chidren and they are my world. But I also know when to say when. After my last son, I set up an appt. to have a tublal ligation. My husband at the time was pissed, but to hell with him. We had our hands full and I wanted to be sure we'd be comfortable financially raising them (they're happy, well rounded, adjusted kids. I think I did well.

I'm now out on a work injury and am living on my savings. I don't want hand outs. I have enough things on my mind and I don't need that hanging over my head.

I think it's a disgrace that society has to pay for these children because she has no money; no job; no real home. Once again, it's left up to us to feed, clothe and house this ungrateful bitch.

I don't wish any ill will on the children - they're the innocent ones. I do believe, however, these children should be placed in foster care and go to a permanent, loving family. But that's just my opinion and it's not worth shit.

Who knowx, maybe I'm just heartless!

Sorry for the long rant.
