Who's To Blame For The Octuplets?

Nadya Suleman gave birth to eight children in California this January after in-vitro fertilization treatments. Suleman already had six children; with the octuplets' birth, she now cares for 14 children under the age of 8. She doesn't work and is living on her own disability stipend, food stamps and state aid for three of her older children.

Host Scott Simon and columnist Kathleen Parker discuss where the responsibility for Suleman's situation should rest.
