OctoAllred200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Gloria Allred is criticizing Nadya Suleman after the mother of 14 told Us Weekly that she regretted having her octuplets.

Nadya was quoted as saying, "I think it was a mistake - in terms of the well-being of the octuplets and of my other kids. I can't give myself to them 100 percent...if I'd known that, I never would have fathomed having eight more."

Allred was outraged by Suleman's remark saying: "I think it's very, very sad when any mother calls her child, or in this case, eight little babies, a mistake. How are the babies going to feel when they grow up and read one day, as they will, or view on the internet, as they will, the fact that their mother calls them a mistake?"

"That is just very, very sad to me as a person who is an advocate for children, Allred continued.

"Even if she thinks it, the fact that she sad it is very, very troubling because has she considered the impact that would have on the children long-term? That's a question to which I don't have the answer, but I think that many people will agree with me that it's rather disturbing that she would say that."
