Regarding the “Hands Full” article on the Dereghishian quads (June 16), with “30 to 40 disposable” diapers per day, will we see canyons filled with Pampers? Doesn’t anyone realize what a waste of our resources this represents?
The population is out of control, yet immigration policies won’t address this issue. Children in the Dereghishians’ war-torn Iran are orphaned, but they (the Dereghishians) take fertility drugs and produce four more now-American parents. And she wants her parents to move here to help care for the children.
I think the public has got to stop accepting every baby story as cute and inspiring and recognize the impact on all of us and our environment--what’s left of it.
