Yes, scary isn't it! Being ultra conservative is one thing, but why do these people feel the urge to get into politics?

I don't know if this has made it here yet, but it bears repeating...

One of those boys has his hair parted on the right side instead of the left like all the other ones. The parents should crush that level of dissent before he grows up to be a troublemaker!

Of course it's their life, but I just can't understand-with all of the medical problems Josie has had and taking those kinds of risks possibly having another. Including Michelle's life-she would really take any sort of risk of leaving all of those kids without a mother?





"Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar have always been open about their willingness to have children. But when the devout Baptists and stars of TLC's 19 Kids and Counting faced the catastrophic aftereffects of their 19th child's premature birth, many assumed they might be done.

But now the couple – who only recently brought baby Josie home after being hospitalized for six months as she recovered from a perforated bowel and rare digestive problems – say they are ready to consider a 20th child.

"Our family is stronger than ever," Jim Bob, 45, tells PEOPLE in its new issue. "We made it through the storm."

That's not to say that everything has been easy with baby Josie. Born early after Michelle developed preeclampsia (pregnancy-induced high blood pressure), Josie was just 8 days old when a perforated bowel threatened her life.

"When she first came home, I couldn't sleep at all," says Michelle, 43. "That was the scariest part for me, having the full responsibility of her care on my shoulders ... It was intimidating."

Similarly daunting are the very real medical risks Michelle could face with another pregnancy – particularly a return of preeclampsia, which can lead to a stroke or prove fatal. But despite the risk – and intense criticism – the pair vow to stick to their beliefs.

"People think we are overpopulating the world," says Jim Bob. "We are following our convictions."

What convictions?

What's driving them?

I'm confused.

Read up on the Quiverfull movement. I'm assuming that's what he's referring to.

They are against all birth-control options-they view contraception as a form of abortion and consider even natural family planning an attempt to control a realm that should be entrusted to God.

These people are insane. Like MrsS said, there are health risks for the mother and the risk of her dying with over a dozen kids motherless. Don't they get it? How can they be so blind?

Personally, I've come to believe that Jim-Bob is an egomaniac who's literally creating his own kingdom to rule over.

it's really great that some people are able to construct the lives and the families they want and are given the blessings and benefits of the state to be able to do so.
