Don't know her of her mental status. However, as often happens with the procedure multiples occur. Some centers, as is the case here, offered to reduce the number of fetuses but the mother refused. Creates quite an ethical deliema. My opinion for what its worth, the implantation of multiple embryos should be outlawed and some sort of financial help for the parents should be initiated to help with the expense. One of the reasons for multiple embryo implantation is to increase the odds of success and decrease the costs (many can't afford multiple one embryo implantations). We all end up paying for it one way or the other.
