Please, make them stop

No doubt you heard about the woman who just gave birth to eight children.

Yes, eight babies in one fell swoop.

Turns out she had sought fertility treatments.

Oh, and by the way, she already had six children.

Now, I'm all for reproductive rights and such, but, I'm sorry, this endless pursuit of popping out babies is bordering on mental illness. If you've got six kids already, why go for fertility treatments? Why can't you be happy with the children you have?

I would urge some researchers in psychological circles to do a study on this - women who want to get pregnant so badly and so often that it becomes an unhealthy obsession.

Jeez - we've got enough people on the planet already!
