families( 6 children or more per family), especially in this postmodern day and age when advanced contraceptive technologies are very accessible and available?
sort by best latest
Many people DON'T want large families. They WANT/DESIRE small families. No one in their logical minds want large families. Large families were fine in agrarian times, not in the 21st century. GOOD GOD, there is such a thing as birth control!
What people want is still a personal choice.
Some people may want a large family and have the money to raise them, The Osmonds, Jacksons, the Kennedys, and others, we should not be stereo typing .
Grace Marguerite Williams- "no one in their logical mind wants a large family". Wow! Who has dictated that? Many logical people want a large family, sorry to break the news to you. Truly incredible how many people think we all have to want the same
True Grace you yourself just said no one wants the same , and their are people who
want children , we should not think all people should think alike .there are people who want children and can not have them.
Logical, intelligent people put forethought into having children so they can have the best economic & educational opportunities.They've the amount of children so that oldest children AREN'T parentfied & children aren't impoverished. GOOD GOD,
Excellent response,not only is it irresponsible,it's also mindless. How can people bring children in the world to live in poverty & struggle while others HAVE. I SEE why many children from large/very large families RESENT those from small familie
We would not know of such a private decision between the two ,when and how pertection is applied or used. but when a life gets here it is to late to complain , the child needs are important why make it
Bad by saying you should not be here by words
K&T - it is HIGHLY unlikely birth control would fail 6 times in a row.
Rather it did or not is a God given right.
If God allows it who are we to talk against it
We are not the ones having the responsibility birthing or being the parents.
K&T - I agree that the size of a family should be up to the parents. However, those who are irresponsible put a burden on society, in the way of welfare payments, abused / neglected children, and potential criminals in the future.
You have said truth , but that does not mean we are to say that is all situations prematurely. and certainly we are not to add to the mental tearing down of saying you should not be here after children have been born.
YOLEEN, don't even try to reason. It is an utter exercise in futility! You have presented an intelligent premise which I agree wholeheartedly with but it is falling on DEAD ears!
Say yes has spoken truth in part grace I can agree that people can misuse their power of having children but not all people have, and I think it is futile to say how many anyone should have , maybe 10 could be a good number if you can care for them.
Typical large/very large families are IMPOVERISHED, POOR, or NEAR POVERTY.They've poor nutrition, medical care, & clothing.They receive SOME type of OUTSIDE aid. It's IMMORAL & IRRESPONSIBLE to have kids you CAN'T support/raise! Birth control
