UPDATE: Amanda and Thomas Stansel Welcome Their Sextuplets

More news to report on the Stansel Sextuplets this evening. Earlier today a Houston newspaper reported the six were "very critical but stable at this time."

The babies arrived yesterday weighing between 12.3 ounces and 1 pound, 2 ounces at 23 weeks gestation.

Just 20 minutes ago, Tomas Stansel twittered that one of the boys Dallin Cory Stansel had lost his fight. One of the girls Ashlyn was in having surgery and Kaitlyn was most likely to be next.

My heart breaks for this family. 23 weeks is too early. We will be praying for the remaining 5. Sometimes amazing things do happen...

These large multiple births are the result of irresponsibility, either by the physicians or the couples. It gives a black eye to the families that use infertility treatments responsibly. One of two things happens to cause these large quantities of births. Either the doctors see that too many eggs were produced and decided to go ahead any way, or the family decided to have sex at home after being told to skip this cycle because too many eggs were created. Its even possible that these people told the doctor they would reduce if too many embryos were created and ultimately lied. Regardless, its irresponsible and it makes things harder on the rest of us who handle our infertility problems responsibly. They know going into it that the likelihood of serious problems for the children is a result. Each and everyone of these couples that do this stick their hand out begging for money too. It makes me sick.
