Octomom's Doctor In Trouble Again

Sasha Brown-Worsham

Octomom's doctor is at it again.

If you don't remember (and how could you not?) "Octomom" is Nadya Suleman, the California woman who gave birth to octuplets when she already had six children at home, bringing the grand total to 14. The California Medical Board accused her doctor -- Michael Kamrava -- of a "pattern of gross negligence."

Now, it seems he is back for more.

According to Fox News:

Dr. Michael Kamrava implanted seven embryos in a 48-year-old woman causing her to become pregnant with quadruplets, the Medical Board of California said in a 20-page accusation filed on June 30.

The medically recommended number of embryos is two.

The woman, who became pregnant with quadruplets, suffered a number of complications during the pregnancy and the babies were delivered six weeks early by c- section.

I am not going to bash "Octomom" since there seems to be plenty of that already. Instead I will bash this doctor and the "board" that allows him to keep playing with women's lives and with their fertility.

I am not going to argue about whether Suleman could afford her babies since that whole discussion just depressed me, but I am pretty horrified that a man who implanted embryos in women with cancer and was already reprimanded for what he did to Suleman, is allowed to continue practicing.

To me, he sounds like someone who preys on women's hopes -- note the patient in this case is 48 -- and uses that to conduct medical experiments. It is unconscionable on many levels and should be stopped.

What do you think?
