Prime Example Of Why Women Shouldn't Be Having 500 Babies At Once

Okay, 500 is a exaggeration. But seriously, this story is a perfect example of why women shouldn't be having a half dozen kids at once.

PHOENIX, Arizona (AP) -- The mother of one of two sets of sextuplets born within 10 hours of each other suffered acute heart failure shortly after the delivery but was stable Tuesday, doctors said.

The heart problems were due to the huge volume of blood that Jenny Masche, 32, was carrying in her body while pregnant, Dr. John Elliott said at a news conference at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center. When the babies were delivered Monday, some of the extra blood was lost and "stretched her heart and blood vessels to a very, very critical level," Elliott said.

"So for a while she was very sick."

The babies, three girls and three boys, are in stable condition. Five had been put on ventilators after birth, but now all but one are breathing on their own, doctors said.

Doctors put Masche in the intensive care unit and gave her medication. She was expected to be out of the ICU by Wednesday. (Watch more on mom, babies )

The sextuplets were born 10 hours after Brianna Morrison, 24, gave birth in Minnesota to another set. The Masches used artificial insemination, and Morrison used fertility drugs.

The Morrison sextuplets remained critical Tuesday, a normal condition for such small babies.

New father Bryan Masche joined doctors at the Arizona news conference to talk about his wife's health and to gush over the six tiny additions to his family.

"They're amazing: 10 fingers, 10 toes," he said. "They have little fingernails and perfectly shaped little ears."

The sextuplets were almost 10 weeks premature and weighed between 2 pounds, 1 ounce and 3 pounds.

After getting six kids in one day, Bryan Masche said, he and his wife are happy with the size of their family.

"This is it," he said. "I don't want any more kids."

Having those half dozen children almost literally killed her which makes me wonder if she would have died had her pregnancy gone on any longer. I'm sure I'll be hearing from those who advocate that women should have tons and tons of babies, as if having that many children somehow proves your womanhood.

This also reminds me of something the pro-life jackass that I was debating said. He said that there should be a law stating that all women must have a minimum of three children in order to prevent the UK from becoming extinct. Yes, I realize this is the United States. But he was from the UK and was bitching about the "selfishness" of myself and other women who either don't have children or don't want to have children. You see, that makes us selfish bitches, feminists, Nazis, etc. By the way, he thinks that if you're a woman and you don't have kids or don't want to have kids then you should be thrown in prison.

Like I said, this is a prime example of why women shouldn't be having 500 babies at once. Twins and triplets is enough. Sextuplets is ridiculous!!
