Headline on an AP story on the mother of six who recently had octuplets: Mother of octuplets mother refused to cull embryos:
After finding out about her pregnancy, the woman declined an option offered by doctors of reducing the number of embryos, her mother said.
She also was counseled about the risks of her pregnancy then in its 12th week and about the option of aborting some fetuses when she arrived at the Kaiser, Dr. Harold Henry said.
“Culling” used to refer to unborn babies! How dehumanizing and monstrous. This and other coverage of the octuplets conveys disgusted disapproval of having so many children.
