Well your tax dollars in the state of CA keep people like Charles Manson, and that sick guy who killed his pregnant wife who was found in the bay ... Your tax dollars pay for war and death. Your tax dollars pay to get people off of crack who just go out and do it again ... Your tax dollars pay for corrupt politicians who rake in the money off of you. There are far worse things than Medi-cal and WIC that your tax dollars pay for.
Some of her kids are sick. She didn't intend for them to need SSI. My mother didn't intend to be on SSI for bipolar disorder. You just don't wake up and decide you are going to be on SSI. Getting SSI is no joke and is very hard to do. I didn't intend to have asthma and have to be dependent on state aided insurance programs just to breathe because private health insurance refuses to cover my condition. I have used WIC. I use medicaid/medi-cal and I have children. Should I be sterilized too just because HMO's won't cover me and I am using YOUR tax dollars to fund my prenatal care, asthma doctors, and the such? NO.
So before people say "she uses my tax dollars" (which is more like fractions of a cent from a dollar, a very minute small, incalculable fraction...) think of the things your tax dollars do go to. It costs $20,000 per a year on average to keep a rapist or murderer alive in prison. So if you really want to save your tax dollars start a movement against the other injustices before you start a movement over the beneficial like keeping sick children alive, or feeding someone a meal who is an innocent productive member of our society. Why does Charles Manson or a guy who murders his pregnant wife deserve your $20,000 a year and not innocent children and their mother?(I'm not giving the link because I don't want to disrupt the board.)
I think Nadya Suleman was stupid and/or crazy for having six kids so close together, even crazier for deciding she wanted more, and downright irresponsible for letting herself be implanted with six embryos. The doctor is a criminal as far as I'm concerned.
But the tone of the outrage toward her frightens me. She doesn't deserve death threats; she doesn't deserve to be stalked by paparazzi. And people with disabilities and people who can't support themselves in this economy don't deserve to be condemned right along with her.
