Doctor Says He Used ‘Octomom’ In Fertility Study

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A fertility doctor says he used “Octomom” Nadya Suleman in a human study on fertility methods.

Dr. Michael Kamrava testified Thursday in Los Angeles that she volunteered for the study and she signed a consent form listing risks of the procedure.

The doctor took the stand after a Food and Drug Administration investigator first testified that the mother of 14 was part of an experiment.

Deputy Attorney General Judith Alvarado repeatedly asserted through questioning that Suleman could not have known that she was a “human guinea pig.”

The state medical board is trying to revoke the doctor’s medical license, alleging gross negligence in his treatment of Suleman and two other patients.

Kamrava implanted a dozen embryos into Suleman that resulted in her octuplets last year.

    Nothing this doctor did is illegal. The Board has no authority to revoke his license. All of Octomom’s children lived! There is no negligence.

      Since you think it’s alright for a woman to be on welfare and having six kids already and then eight more, let them move in with you. Seems like you have deep pockets, get her off the publics payrole and put her on yours.
      I bet you voted for Obama.
