Default Octuplets fallout

Lawmakers in Georgia have introduced a bill to ban some of the fertility procedures that gave Nadya Suleman her octuplets, reports the Wall Street Journal. The bill—partly drafted by a state pro-life group—would limit to three the number of embryos that can be implanted in women over 40, and to two in women under 40. Suleman had six embryos implanted. The bill is the most sweeping to date in the wake of the controversial births.

"Nadya Suleman is going to cost the state of California millions of dollars over the years; the taxpayers are going to have to fund the 14 children she has," said a Georgian Republican who sponsored the bill. "I don't want that to happen in Georgia."

We are still hearing about the "octomom" but the story now seems to have migrated to the tabloids. Still, what remains in people's minds is that this situation was somehow wrong and it was caused by infertility treatments. The other day I was talking with a friend and told her I had two ivf treatments and was considering a third. She said, without a trace of a smile, "So you're trying to do the same thing as the women with the eight babies.
