Nadya Suleman the 33 year old woman who recently had octuplets with the help of in vitro fertilization and who has drawn a lot of criticism lately has revealed the following:
1.) She admitted on the TODAY show that she has no income currently and no job.
2.) She intends to take care of her children, all 13 of them by using student loans to care for them.
Using student loans to take care of her children? Well at least she isn’t using high interest credit cards to care for her children. Why hasn’t the government taken these children away from her yet?
Besides the fact that she was dumb enough to admit on national television that she intends to use student loans (money that is designated for, you know, people IN SCHOOL) to care for her children, she also says she has no job!
Not only is her revelation here prove that she is an unfit parent, but she is openly admitting that she is using student loans to pay for and feed her children(She does get about 490 a month in food stamps, which she originally denied).
Apparently she refuses to accept or go on welfare because she is ‘responsible’.
Now every student loan company in the country and the federal government knows that she is using money designated for students to take care of a family. Which means that it is well within the right of these companies to call in the loans and request immediate repayment. Not to mention that if she has federal student loans, she is violating the agreement since you have to be actually enrolled in school to get these loans. Come to think of it, you have to usually be enrolled in school to get any student loan, a move meant to protect people from drowning in debt and from banks from getting ripped off.
Of course another reason why using student loans to care for her children is wrong is quite obvious. The economy isn’t doing well at all and money is becoming harder and harder to find to fund one’s education. This woman is basically taking money out of well deserving student’s hands because she blew 100K on fertilization treatments and won’t get a job to pay for her kids.
She says she is starting school in the fall, a masters programs in counseling psychology. I’m not even going to get started on the issues there. She isn’t in school and yet she is using money meant for hardworking students to care for kids she should have never had in the first place.
But what about the children?
Of course. Some people will say who cares, at least she is getting money to take care of children. Yeah, you know what else will work? Taking the children away where they can get care without this woman ripping off everyone from taxpayers to student loan companies to her own parents.
The children aren’t to blame here and they don’t deserve to be mothered by someone who clearly has no clue what responsibility is.
The student loans need to be revoked, the children need to be taken away from her, and she needs to take a step back and reevaluate her life choices.
