The writer speaks as if a full term delivery was possible, but in fact, most multiple pregnancies of 3+ or more fetus are often lost way before viability. It is rare to see triplets, let alone quads or higher when it comes to successful deliveries. Oh sure, some do survive, but the odds are greatly against this occuring. When I worked in a high risk OBGYN clinic several years ago, we had 3 set of triplet pregnancies in four years, none of the fetus survived beyond 25 weeks of gestation and in two cases, the mothers almost died of bleeding issues. I was so scary for all concerned. I do not envy these parent's choices, but making them feel bad about a very difficult situation does nothing, but create bad feelings.
