Bill designed to prevent octuplets in Missouri
The news has been filled with horror stories about Nadya Suleman, the California woman who gave birth to octuplets last month, bringing her collection to 14 children.
Rep. Rob Schaaf, R-St. Joseph, a medical doctor, has filed legislation to try to prevent the same thing from happening in Missouri.
HB 810, which had its first reading today, "limits the number of embryos a physician can implant to the current number recommended by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine."
