A woman's right to choose

The Octomom, Nadya Suleiman*, has been the target of a great deal of criticism and anger. Her PR agents (!) dropped her after getting death threats. Using modern technology, the unwed mother...oh, sorry, single mom....of six just added eight more babies. The fertility doc who helped her is also in trouble.

Sooooo....what happened to the inalienable right of a woman to choose? To control her own body?

If she had decided to abort the eight, no one would have heard of her. But since she carried them to term....

I get confused sometimes.

*Ironically, her name is the Arabic form of Solomon. King Solomon is famous for his wisdom in dealing precisely with a complex issue of motherhood and newborns.
