PETA May Help Octomom Prevent Home Forclosure

LA HABRA, Calif., March 24 (UPI) — A prominent U.S. animal rights group says it wants to help California “Octomom” Nadya Suleman with finances by placing an ad on her front lawn.

A spokeswoman for Virginia-based People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said the organization sent a letter to Suleman’s lawyer offering to pay for an ad to be placed in front of her La Habra home as a means of helping her avoid foreclosure on the house, the Orange County (Calif.) Register reported Wednesday.

“When you gave birth to octuplets to bring your total number of children to 14, you grabbed headlines and got

the world talking about your controversial decision,” the letter reads. “Now will you help turn some of that attention to another important matter — the dog and cat overpopulation crisis? Unlike humans, dogs and cats cannot decide for themselves how many offspring they will have.”

“Taking us up on our offer is a win-win situation: It would help you and your children to keep your home and also reduce the number of homeless dogs and cats,” PETA wrote.

Suleman’s lawyer, Jeff Czech, said he has been in contact with PETA’s legal department and is awaiting an offer.

One thought on “PETA May Help Octomom Prevent Home Forclosure

  1. This is a nice publicity stunt to win acceptance and generate donations from the public. It strikes a chord on several levels.

    1. Many well-known people have a*sociated themselves with highly recognizable animal welfare and animal rights organizations. For example, Allyssa Milano (sp) donned an evening gown made entirely of vegetables for PETA. (No, I’m NOT comparing a talented, gainfully employed, wealthy actress like Milano to Suleman—HA! That would be silly. They both posed for PETA. That’s it. No other similarities.) When famous people make a positive public statement about animals, then they become more attractive to people who are concerned about the welfare and rights of animals.

    2. PETA’s public image has been getting tarnished lately. Penn n Teller did an expose on PETA’s a*sociation with terrorism and others have been done similar articles on PETA’s darker activities. Appearing somewhat philanthropic towards the Suleman children might help make PETA look better to the public.

    3. PETA is using a famous person to put forth 2 of their usual messages: Be a responsible pet owner and be a vegetarian.

    4. Nadya Suleman is putting forth her usual messages: Have a sense of humor, Be a responsible pet owner and Send Me Money.

    She’s beginning to remind me of a media preacher. Look at me! I’m a great Mom and a nice person. I can teach you how to be a better person and speak for a cause youj believe in. And I need money!

    Where’s the offering plate?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: None of this would be happening, wouldn’t even be an issue, if the little octuplets were being raised by loving adoptive parents with jobs.
