She's baaaaaaack! OctoMom Nadya Suleman has found a way to make headlines again: The documentary on her and her brood of 14 has aired in the UK and will soon air in the US. Now she's having her reasoning for not selectively reducing the number of embryos she was carrying as part of her pregnancy with her nearly-year-old octuplets serve as the latest soundbite to make its media rounds, thanks to an appearance today on Good Morning America.

The HuffPo obliges with this brief rehash of the appearance, zeroing in on Suleman's not-so-veiled stance on the "right to life" issue:

She said she refused to selectively reduce her pregnancy as doctors suggested because she did not want to destroy any of the embryos. "Because which one should I have murdered?" Suleman said in the documentary. "Noah? Isaiah? You know, Jonah?"

Suleman, you know, like, didn't want to talk about the shared paternity of all her 14 children, invoking in this case her "choice" to keep that information to herself. As for that documentary, well, we hear TLC might have an open slot Monday nights for a media-hungry parent and their multiples.
