‘Octomom’: Drugged When Agreed To Implants

LOS ANGELES, July 29 (UPI) — Californian Nadya Suleman, known as “Octomom,” says she was drugged and didn’t know what she was signing when she agreed to be implanted with 12 embryos.

Appearing on Thursday’s “Dr. Drew” show, she said fertility doctor Michael Kamrava had handed her a note about what she would do if “too many [embryos] grew.”

“He gave it to me to sign right there while I’m laying down and I signed it and didn’t read it,” Suleman said, CNN reported.

Kamrava had his California medical license suspended July 1 for gross negligence, KABC-TV, Los Angeles, reported. The California Medical Board ruled Kamrava “did not exercise sound judgment” when he transferred the 12 embryos in 2008.

Suleman, 36. said she never intended to have eight children in January 2009 in addition to the six she already had.

The single mother living on public assistance conceived all 14 children through in vitro fertilization.

Suleiman said she had been turned into a “parody without permission.”

“I have the spotlight. I know it’s my responsibility [for my kids] to brush it away and get rid of the Octomom character,” she said.

Suleman said she suffers anxiety, panic attacks, hyperactivity and obsessive compulsive disorder and was taking a “cocktail of drugs,” including Valium.

    What is going on down there? You Americans are all nuts!!! You elect GW Bush not just once but TWICE. You destroy Iraq and hang the only man capable of governing that bunch of Islamist nutcakes. Octomom, living on welfare with 6 kids wants yet another child and gets it + 7 more, all paid for by the taxpayer. She should have been given a hysterectomy, not an embryo implant!!!!

    Look, the smartest thing you dummies could do right now is dissolve your federal and state governments and ask the Government of Canada to annex your lands and govern you. You people aren’t capable of governing yourselves any longer. You’re all incompetent fools!!! Just one thing, not one of you gets across the border into our country. We don’t know what disease ails y’all but we definitely don’t want it here.

      What happened to the “Comment Policy”? Or you can’t read? Funny that you were aloud to dish your dirt. Canada is not so hot; I know. You must be living under the GEICO rock.
