    I'd donate some of my brain if it was at all possible. I'm too smart for my own good already so I can use some dumbing down. :p

    drinking habits?

    if shes pregnant every year, there isn't much of a window to prove you have a drinking problem without drinking while pregnant. these people sound a hot mess..

    Smoking and drinking while pregnant, great job mom. I feel bad for kids of parents like these.

    Title's misleading.

    This woman hasn't been banned from having more kids. No western democracy will do that because the right to reproduce is considered a basic human right.

    Can't afford counselling but they can afford children? Children which they are obviously unfit to keep. Nice. Yeah, I bet they don't want to air their issues to strangers, and they're doing a fab job of that, what with this being in the news and all. I'm sure this is much more productive. :rolleyes:

    There are times when I wonder if it really should be.

    Not everyone is cut out to be a parent.

    The right to not reproduce is also a basic human right. Yet, people ignore that as well by forcing women to get illegal, unsafe abortions.

    As far as Ms. Winters is concerned, she doesn't deserve another baby. She has refused to get free treatment. Her excuse for not doing so is pathetic and a sign that she doesn't want to fix her problems. Until she corrects her problems, she deserves to lose every single one of her kids.
    There are some people who shouldn't breed. :eek:

    I see they're from Luton. Luton Town were crowned League One champions in the 2004–05 season – maybe the excitement was just too much for this couple?

    Wow, 14 times? You'd think that after all the physical pain she goes through, she'd just give up by now or at least try to change her habits.

    Thank god for child services.

    The saviour for all those who are unable to have children of their own? A baby factory!


    To be serious, it's messed up and sad.

    Just imagine if the adopted kids grow up and want to find out more about their past . . .

    What a freak show element to add into the emotional confusion adoption can cause.

    I doubt there's any way to increase productivity in that area ;)

    She can produce product (children) for all of those anti-abortion zealots to adopt.

    I don't disagree, but these are the rules that we have constructed for ourselves that provide us with a largely free society that's ruled by law and not some other thing.

    What an incredibly sad story. Those poor children. I wonder if the mom drank and smoke through all of her pregnancies - one child with cerebal palsy, another died from brain disease. I wonder if any of the other children had health issues. And were they abusing their children? I assume that is what the "aggressive" comment was referring to.

    I don't understand her saying "If we can't cope I will be the first to admit that and we will never try for children again." Errrm, she's had 14 children taken away from her - I think it's already been determined that she CAN'T do it. What in the world does she think will be different this time around? :confused:

    I just don't know what to think. It's like those educationally subnormal women lighting up, 9 months pregnant, smoking outside the front door of the maternity unit - I'm just utterly lost for words.

    Physical pain? I should imagine that after 10 they just fall out. The 14th is probably braced against the sides of her womb in case she sneezes too vigorously!

    Edit: Oh my god she lives about three miles away from me!

    This story just reinforces my (some say controversial) plan of mass sterilization of council estates ;) Before anyone gets all upset about that remark i'm originally from a gnarly council estate and haven't looked back since I started running from it ten years ago.

    Her body is probably going to crap out on her soon. Doctor told us that it wasn't a good idea to be pregnant with out at least a 4-6 month window. Your body gets done making a baby, starts to whined down and then it's got to start all over again. Woman is selfish if you ask me.
