Octomom, Eight Is Too Many (So Is Seven, Six, Five …)

Published by PETA.

It seems like everybody has an opinion about “Octomom” Nadya Suleman, who gave birth to eight babies last year. No matter where you stand on that decision, starring in porn isn’t Suleman’s only option to remedy the recently rumored foreclosure proceedings on her home in La Habra, Calif. In fact, PETA is offering to bolster her finances by paying to place an ad on her front lawn:

Massive media attention is aimed at covering Octomom’s every move, and it’s time to put that attention to good use. After all, Americans need to know that millions of dogs and cats end up in animal shelters every year, and half of them are euthanized simply because there aren’t enough good homes. Countless other homeless dogs and cats suffer on the streets—dodging cars, enduring attacks by other animals and cruel humans, and suffering from disease and starvation. People need to know that the solution to so much of this suffering couldn’t be simpler: Spay or neuter your animal companions.

After all, however one might feel about Octomom, I think we can all agree that for puppies and kittens, one litter is one too many.
