If it were me, i'd be weeping uncontrolably.
However if you actually want the mollies to survive, you should probably ensure they are in a densley planted tank. Alternativley, you can use one of the ready-made-off-the-shelf breeding trap type things that sit on the top of your tank that are specifically aimed at livebearers.

what you need to feed the fry is totaly ba
if it is heavily planted the first few weeks they will feed on infusiora arround the plants. and if it is not heavily planted might i suggest you go buy s breeder trap or some "baby keeper" plastic plants.
you can take the babies and put them in a small tank, jar or tupperware with an air stone, you can feed them any combination of the following: finely crushed flake, liquid fry food (LIQUIFRY), baby brine shrimp, green water, daphnia, infusiora, and other specific live fry foods (see aquabid.com for live cultures for less $$). just make sure you mix it up so they get good and healthy. depending upon the amount of fry that survive, you will eventually need like a tengallon plus outgrow tank. you probably wont wan to keep that many mollies and so you can sell them to a LFS, friends, or neighbors.
just remember, to ensure fry safety, make sure there are no other fish in the tank. once you can accomplish multiple batches of fry, you can accomplish to bring in a bit of income to purchase more stuf for the fry, and your other tank(s)...
