Kate Gosselin is scheduled to be on the Dr. Phil Show on Wednesday, February 11,2008
For most single mothers, one child is enough of a handful, but when a 33-year-old woman in Southern California gave birth to eight premature babies — in addition to the six children under the age of 8 she already has — the country started talking! The mother of 14, Nadya Suleman, recently broke her silence, and it is reported that all her children were created through in-vitro fertilization, an expensive and purposeful process. The case has raised questions: How did she end up with eight embryos? How will she care for all of them? Who will pay these children’s expenses over the years? How do we take the children’s well-being into account in reproductive medicine? Dr. Phil and his panel of esteemed guests, including Dr. Jim Sears, co-host of The Doctors, debate the ethical questions that have been raised. Dr. Phil will also speak with Kate Gosselin, mother of eight and star of TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, about the challenges of raising eight children."
