“Octomom” Nadya Sulema had some help becoming one of the strangest figures on the pop culture landscape to emerge in a long time. Sulema got her nickname from her second birth, which produced eight children, but she was actually assisted by the same fertility doctor both times she conceived. After helping Octo have six children the first time, you have to wonder why this doctor did not question his patient further about the wisdom of a second multiple pregnancy. Well, the state of California has wizened-up AT LAST, revoking the license of the doctor who shockingly brought Octomom into being. The state medical board has belatedly realized “he did not exercise sound judgment”:
California medical officials revoked the license of the fertility doctor who helped “Octomom” Nadya Suleman become the mother of 14 children through repeated in vitro treatments, according to a decision made public Wednesday.
The Medical Board of California said it was necessary to revoke Dr. Michael Kamrava’s license to protect the public. The revocation takes effect July 1.
The Beverly Hills fertility doctor has acknowledged implanting 12 embryos into Suleman prior to the pregnancy that produced her octuplets. It was six times the norm for a woman her age.
That was a mistake, according to the board.
I should say! Does the board realize the main action in this case occurred two years ago? Perhaps the members just wanted to be extremely thorough in reviewing the facts, but they could have reached this decision as soon as Octomom’s second batch of children were born by reading TMZ.
