British Mother of 8 Says She’ll Have More Kids To Get Government Benefits
Here’s a frightening glimpse into the future of America’s welfare state. A British version of the Octomom says she’ll keep cranking ’em out in order to qualify for a bigger government check. (Although liberals insist the welfare state has never encouraged a single woman anywhere to: birth: multiple children she doesn’t support, we now have at least one on the record who begs to differ.)
I don’t know a single sane person who could look at the photo above and say, “You know, she could use another one of those.” But that’s Marie Buchan’s plan–even though she can’t do it naturally, and evidently has enough money lying around to hire a surrogate. (Those British welfare checks must be very generous!)
Ms. Buchan, 32, ignored doctors’ advice to stop getting pregnant in order to have her eighth child. She lives in a three-bedroom rented house in Selly Oak, Birmingham, with her children Tia, aged 12, Leah, 11, Latoya, eight, Joshua, seven, Alisha, five, Mikayla, three, Amelia, two, and eight month old Olivia.
She has had an on-off relationship with the children’s father since they were teenagers. Ms. Buchan now needs a hysterectomy, but says she will use a surrogate in order to have two more babies.
Buchan also screeches about how it’s her “right” to keep having kids. That’s the entitlement mentality in a nutshell: “My rights! My body! My welfare check! My free house!” But she never considers whether exercising her “right” is good for society or even her own children, eight of whom are crammed into a three-bedroom house with no father in sight. Why would she think about it? It’s not like she’s paying for it. British taxpayers, where is your anger?
