Hospital: Egyptian woman gives birth to septuplets – Yahoo! News

The newborns, four boys and three girls, weigh between 3.2 pounds and 6.17 pounds and are in stable condition, Darwish said. They have been placed in incubators in four different hospitals that have special premature baby units, he said.

“This is a very rare pregnancy — something I have never witnessed over my past 33 years in this profession,” Darwish told The Associated Press by phone from the hospital.

Darwish decided to carry out the Caesarean section at the end of Khamis’ eighth month of pregnancy due to the pressure on her kidneys. He said Khamis, who already has three daughters, took fertility drugs in an effort to have a son.

Who says it only happens in America,,in CAIRO, Egypt it happened the 27 year old took fertility drugs to try and have a son,she got four of them and, three more girls.

    Can anyone say WTF? Come on, say it with me. I’m not sure what the biggest problem here is. The fact that humans are not suppposed to be oviparous, the fact the father only works 2 days a week and probably won’t be able to afford all the children, or the fact that the world is grossly overpopulated and this family some how thinks they deserve 450% more children than they should’ve had (2, not 9). Just say no to the fertility drugs!! Just say no to more children if you don’t have the income to support them. Just say no to the overpopulation of the earth! Children are a priveledge, not a right. If you don’t have the means to care for them, then don’t have them. The government is not and should not be here to provide for your reproductive overactivity.

    Hello 1 MLIndy well said,, I know some myself who only have a few,but they keep having kids knowing they can’t afford them, I mean these people work but they just can’t afford to keep having children because it is really expensive these days to have children. I can’t say to much about having children because I have exactly 0 children,but children are wonderful to have,but that said only if you can afford them and if you keep having them you put yourself in a financial strain,you raised a good point children are a privilege.

    Even sadder is the fact that they were not content with daughters. They had to have a son to be fulfilled. WTF. What is the cause of the attitude people have that continually discriminates against females even before birth? This couple had three daughters but were not satisfied until having a “SON”. Too bad she didn’t give birth to 7 girls.

    How can anybody take care of 7 babies at once??

    How are they going to feed these children?

    I’m in.

    WTF???

  5. Floyd says:

    Ha,Ha,,I’m up with that also and it opened up to someone I knew, they had 12 girls, you heard me right 12. Now mind you this happened quite a few years back and they had many acres on to grow food, they owned cattle,hogs to name a few commodities at their disposal. Times have since changed from back then and it is hard to take care of children today,I mean if we look at it from a medical perspective alone the cost can be overwhelming. I can also relate to the fact these individuals wanted a son,,I mean a daughter is just as good,we can’t pick and choose our children and build our own in a test tube,they should have been blessed by what the good lord gave them. Thanks for the great response on this post.

    So what? Not a miracle in the least. She used FERTILITY drugs and admitted that her three girls were not good enough, because boys are “preferred” over girls. Disgusting!

    I once heard a fertility specialist say that mulitple births in IVF births are considered a failure, because the goal is for a single birth, not multiples.

    Well said everyone!! some miracle, haha. And they are wondering how they will afford these kids…..hmmm…..maybe should have thought about that BEFORE taking the drugs?? ya think??? you could afford fertility drugs, now afford the consequences. Stupidity reigns……again! there won’t be one blind cent coming from this hard working FEMALE; I’ll tell you that!
