Is Nadya Suleman being unfairly judged?

There is much talk about Nadya Suleman and her eight babies. This makes a total of 14 children for the young mom. Isn’t it interesting how America and the entire world are fascinated by Nadya? For a few moments people stopped listening about the economic situation of the U.S. and turned their attention to Nadya. She’s been receiving negative media attention for quite some time. Is this fair? Is Nadya the only woman in the world to have children that she cannot afford? The answer, of course, is no. However, the babies have one thing that many children do not have, the same father!

Nadya is being unfairly judged. Many women in the U.S. and around the world have children they cannot afford to raise. The number of children is irrelevant. Men and women have no business having children if they cannot afford to raise them. It’s not uncommon for grandparents to raise their grandchildren because their children cannot take care of their kids. Often times, the children and grandchildren move in with the grandparents. This is becoming prevalent in the U.S.

Many women in the U.S. have children by different men. It’s not uncommon for women to have two or more kids with different fathers. At least Nadya knows who the father is of her 14 children. Why aren’t women whose children have different fathers being judged? Do you think these women can raise their children? They are probably receiving government assistance paid for by the citizens of the U.S.

Why is that men who father children with multiple women are not being judged? Dr. Phil’s February 27 episode was “Forced to be a Deadbeat Dad.” Former NBA star Jason Caffey owes child support for 10 children. Of course, the children do not have the same mother. Where is the uproar about this? Guess what? His career is over and he cannot pay the child support that was agreed upon between him and one of the “baby’s mama.” The woman is taking him to court because he has not paid child support. Jason’s attorney and the “baby’s mama” attorney were on the February 27 Dr. Phil show. Jason was offered a deal from the woman’s attorney. Will he take it? Stay tuned.

The bottom line is that Nadya made a major mistake. She has announced that she realizes her mistake. Unfortunately, it’s too late. However, Nadya is not the only person in the world to make a major mistake. Many people make mistakes everyday and then think about the consequences of their actions. It’s human nature.

The bottom line is that these children are here, and they cannot be sent back. They need love and the basic necessities. Americans pay for many children each year, what’s a few more. Maybe if people would start taking responsibility for their own lives, the U.S. would not have so many issues. When people learn to face their fears, learn why they are not happy, and take the steps to live a better life, perhaps the U.S. will be get back on track.

Do you think Nadya deserves the negative attention she’s been receiving?


  1. I recently saw a paparazzi photo of her in Best Buy or some similar store, shopping for video games… they still won’t leave her alone.

    What “mistake” did Nadya make? Taking fertility drugs? Not aborting? not giving them up for adoption? This case is full of “shoulds” and not clear-cut ones, I might add… vilifying her will not help her create a loving environment for those 14 kids… she should be left alone.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I agree that the children need a loving home. People gave this story way to much attention. At least she will have help and some funds to put away for the kids.
