  Washingtonpost.com: McCaughey Septuplets Set to Turn 1
Kenny and Bobbi McCaughey are promoting "Seven from Heaven," a book about their first year as the parents of the world's first surviving set of septuplets.
In the septuplets' first year, the trick to success, said their mother, has been keeping a strict schedule, even while she oversees the changing of 40 diapers a day, and the consumption of 11 jars of baby food and 32 bottles of formula, made a gallon at a time.
Although the McCaugheys stated early on that they did not want to market their children's story, hoping to avoid a circus-like spotlight, they have agreed to several exclusive arrangements to reduce media traffic and bring in some revenue.

Before returning to Iowa, there was a stop at a bookstore where Bobbi and Kenny signed copies of "Seven From Heaven: The Miracle of the McCaughey Septuplets," their account of what it has been like to care for seven babies in a tiny house in Carlisle.
Later this month, the McCaugheys will move into a new, seven- bedroom house that sits about 100 yards from their current two-bedroom home.

Throw in the frequent invocations by the McCaughey clan that the birth was God's will, rather the will of a lab technician at Glaxco-Wellcome, and we're into the realm of the eerily cultish.

 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - Baby Boom Baby Bust - Conception technologies give rise to ethical concerns
The McCaughey septuplets were born before the Myers quadruplets, and the children were all healthy in both cases.
The septuplets "were a vibrant example of the fact that multiple pregnancy rates are too high and need to be lowered," said Dr. Robert Stillman, medical director of Shady Grove Fertility Centers in Washington, D.C. "People were frightened out of their wits," Wakim said of his infertility patients' reaction to the septuplets' birth.
Some women are so over-stimulated by such drugs, with an ultrasound confirming an unusually high number of follicles containing eggs ready to be released, that their doctors discourage them from trying to conceive that month so they won't have three or four or more children.

To assume the McCaughey's are responsible for the downfall of civilization is pretty....well, stupid, for lack of a better word.

The only recorded septuplet birth in the US before that time was that of the Frustaci Septuplets on May 21, 1985, in California.
As I mentioned earlier, I modeled their story off of the Dionne Quints' story, and they were the only set of quintuplets (not counting the Diligentis born in the 1940s in Argentina, who were kept something of a secret by their parents to avoid the kind of attention the Dionnes recieved) until they were adults.
Since the Carlson Septuplets are identical, fertility drugs could not have been the cause of their birth.
