Suleman Octuplets - Reception


See also: Nadya Suleman

News of the octuplets caused an international media sensation. Most public response has been negative, including some death threats, which police are investigating. Suleman even has gone into hiding.

There has been much public discussion about Nadya Suleman's decision to implant and give birth to octuplets, including a minor protest outside the Suleman home, though Nadya Suleman was living elsewhere. Many expressed concern that Suleman's decision for more children, despite being unemployed and unmarried, would burden taxpayers via public support.

State Senator Gloria Negrete McLeod introduced legislation to have fertility clinics placed under the jurisdiction of the Medical Board of California. The implantation of twelve embryos in a woman under 35 years of age who already had children raised many controversies and led to calls for legislation to limit the number of simultaneous embryo transfers.

Famous quotes containing the word reception:

    To aim to convert a man by miracles is a profanation of the soul. A true conversion, a true Christ, is now, as always, to be made by the reception of beautiful sentiments.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Aesthetic emotion puts man in a state favorable to the reception of erotic emotion.... Art is the accomplice of love. Take love away and there is no longer art.
    Rémy De Gourmont (1858–1915)

    But in the reception of metaphysical formula, all depends, as regards their actual and ulterior result, on the pre-existent qualities of that soil of human nature into which they fall—the company they find already present there, on their admission into the house of thought.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)
