(KSL News) The mother of the octuplets born last week in California is getting a lot of offers for book deals, TV shows and other business ventures, according to a public relations firm she's hired. The octuplets are the longest-surviving group of babies in U.S. history.

The birth of these eight babies to a single mother who already has six children is sparking a lot of debate. Many of the comments and questions take us into an area of reproductive rights.

This evening, we've invited Dr. C. Matthew Peterson from the Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine to talk about the general parameters for in vitro fertilizations in tonight's Talking Point.
