With a reality show in the works, we can soon expect to have the so-called Octomom, Nadya Suleman, back in the spotlight. In the meantime, what's happened to the doctor who enabled her to have eight children at once?
According to the Associated Press, Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted six embryos in Nadya Suleman, far more than specified in national guidelines. Two of the embryos split, resulting in two sets of twins, for a total of eight babies.
The Beverly Hills physician was recently expelled from the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. The reason: he "violated the group's standards." A spokesperson for the organization was careful to say that the action was not related to any single patient. The action does not impact the doctor's ability to practice medicine, or to create another Octomom.
What do you think?
* Was the professional group's action appropriate, too little or just right?
* Should specific actions be taken against this doctor?
* Should women be able to have as many embryos as they want implanted?
* Is it appropriate to develop a reality show rewarding multiple births?
* Do you think such a reality show will result in more women seeking fertility treatments to generate large families?
Or do you find this a circus that degrades women and mothers?
Can't wait to hear your thoughts.
