So just stop it!
It's ridiculous, and there are kids who are in goddamn foster homes, orphanages, on the street, in juvenile detention centers.
19 Kids and counting. One after the other, as though you had some quota you had to meet. Why do you feel the need to have 19 kids?
And don't get me started on the parents who want multiples just so they can get their own spot on TV, get free shit, get money.
Why must you become a part of the problem? You don't need to have kids to feel validated as an adult, or even as a couple. Adopt.

Stop raising your children on television for god's sake. I think some people have taken reality TV way too far. People like Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar (19 Kids and Counting) are incredibly selfish. She'd risk her life just for the sake of some ancient doctrine and for what? She'd end up leaving her family behind, leaving all of the responsibilities on the shoulders of her husband and the oldest children.
And it's not like they're the only ones who go forth and multiply either, a lot of families feel the need to have a lot of kids, some of which a lot end up not being able to support and seek government financial aid.
If you can't afford to support your kids, don't fucking have them. I don't understand how we call people who collect animals animal hoarders and yet people who have kid after kid after kid aren't considered a kind of hoarding.
Don't deny it, you know it's true. They hoard kids like people hoard animals. There needs to be a limit, but we can't trust our government to properly and fairly enforce it without violating people's rights. I mean, just look at China's One Child Policy.

May change the stamp's design later. It's kinda hard to read.
Like they force their kids to believe the same thing they do, they force them to do the work around the house while they are practically breeding, and they are neglecting their kids. The kids should be taken away from them, who cares for the duggars anymore. The parents only care for the fame instead of their kids.
Even i hate to say this but i'm happy the 20th died from birth, since that kid will be entering a family that cares more about fame than their own children.
Michelle duggar treats her uterus like a clown car, non stop popping babies out of her vagina. It looks like she doesn't respect herself in anyway shape or form.
I. Will. Have. Babies.
Adoption is a long process. You often times can't even adopt because it takes forever.
I understand what you're trying to say, but it could be a little less 'STOP HAVING BABIES YOU STUPID FUCKING MORONS' anda little more 'don't have babies unless you know what you're in for/if you can't afford it and you KNOW you can't afford them.'
Having 15 kids isn't child hoarding if I wanted those 15 kids. Even if I didn't wan those kids and ended up having a vitro fertilization accident and end up with five babies, there's no shaming me for believing I can raise those kids.
Also, if I can't because I don't have enough money, then I would apply for food stamps or child support.
I don't see why people think having lots of kids automatically makes you a jobless bum.
Lots of people back then and now have up to eight or nine children sometimes and work jobs.
There's also the presented scenario that I'm a foster parent and get money from the government to help raise those children. As I've said before, I have a friend who is a foster child in the home of twelve people.
It angers and saddens me that people do that. Slut shame or name-call people for wanting a large family, or telling them they shouldn't or can't raise a family of more than two or three because they're a bit low on cash at the moment. Countries have become so anti-family now for some reason, and I can't figure it out.
On the fifteen kids note, what if I want the kids? What might be a waste of money to you could be to me believing that a freak vitro fertilisation accident that gave me five babies to the addition of the ten kids that I have (that are a mixture of adoption and my own children) was a damn blessing.
One man's trash is another man's treasure, señor/señorita.
It tickles me on how people think that the '15 children and counting' people are 'child hoarders,' when it's THEIR choice at how many children they can have; children are people, not animals or objects. You can't horde your own species.
On top of that, a lot of the people who have a lot of children saved those children from the hell that foster care/the adoption system is(the adoption system is much harder to get out of than foster care). I have a friend who has twelve adopted siblings, ALL from foster care, he being one of them. They might not have a lot of money, but so what?
Being in foster care and the adoption system is the equivalent to being in a Gulash. You can get raped, killed, forced into prostitution, etc.
Some people are okay with having twelve kids, adopted or your own flesh and blood, because they know they have a better home than some people will.
and yes, there are always acceptions, so you don't need to try and shove them down my throat in attempts to prove some point. I am fully aware of their existence.
And yes, labour is intense, but if we couldn't, as humans, take labour, we would have evolved away from it. We'd perhapse have sacks that the baby just comes out of or eggs. I dunno. But all in all, it's the person's choice. Birth is honestly not the worse part of pregnancy; but if they want to go through that fifteen times than so be it. It's their business, and shaming them is like slut shaming somebody for wanting to have babies.
Also, I realise humans are animals. That's why we're in the ape family.
When I referred to animals, I meant domesticated animals such as cats and dogs, goats and cows. They do not have as much as a consciousness as we do. Being born and bred into captivity makes them soft, reluctant to leave; humans have enough concience to know when or when not to leave home. Basically what I'm trying to say is, you can't horde something that knows it needs to leave sooner or later. People who raise foster kids, or even their own fifteen children, KNOW that someday their children will leave the nest. Hoarders are convinced that they can keep the animals/items they posses forever.
And of course you can have whatever opinion you want too, but so can I. Anyway just saying. I don't wanna argue.
That, and they should not have broadcasted the situation.
Siblings are hard enough to deal with sometimes, as I don't often tend to observe siblings who are similar at all. Often one trait of the biological parents is present in every child, and gets 'blown up' more than it is significant to the parent. Siblings are a different bunch of people. You add in more and more, and it becomes absolute chaos and disharmony all around as the difference is multiplied and multiplied once more, quite needlessly because these parents apparently have never heard of a fucking CONDOM. Imagine 19 siblings. I'm sorry but I don't think that 19 siblings will be as "happy" and "luving" as much as they seem to portray on TV.
I'm not ashamed to admit there's some times where my sisters get on my nerves so much that I would prefer to lock myself in my room for days before I came out. At their worst, one can be the worst instigating sardonic sarcastic smart-arse ever and the other is the drama queen of snooty palace who honestly believes she's a horrible person and claims she hates people who give to charity. Yea, not the smartest girl on the block. Family is not everything, and yet these people are not letting the kids get out to make friends due to the immense volume of family. It smothers those poor kids. Family, along with any hobby/relationship should not be one you are forced to practice 24/7. I don't care what your religion is, that is plain unhealthy and mollycoddles the kids, the youngest especially. But I've seen the show out of morbid curiousity and those kids have no privacy and no time away from their family. That's wrong, plain and simple. But the eldest part of the clan have to take care of every last little brat so they get no life, and the youngest are mollycoddled and have no responsibility so they end up ridiculously spoiled. Too many cooks spoil the broth could not be more true for the youngest children of that family. A child needs ONE or maybe TWO SOLID caretaker/s for goodness sake. Elementary level psychology. Not everyone in that friggin huge-ass family. That means half the time the baby probably won't even know who it's mother is because it's passed around by every Tom, Dick and Harry. Now that's sad. That is a travesty.
Sorry if this seemed angry and ranting, but really it is a big deal, these kids will have mental problems by not having enough caretaker to go around just because their parents don't believe in birth control. Can't you see how plain NUTS that is? Children don't exist for our pleasure or to serve us. Once they are around, we exist to parent them responsibly. Parents always have to put more in the relationship, the kids are not little dolls. I wish more people would think hard about this children thing.
Actually, I did not find your message to be angry or ranting at; in fact, I actually agree with your post 100% and believe that you have explained the situation better than I ever could. I do not know if my message brought forth the correct message, but I what I meant to say was I believed that...whoever the parents are, I don't know their names nor care to know...were trying to keep a very outdated and sad tradition of mass-childbearing/children-are-our-labor-source alive despite the harmful consequences that it could bring. Both in regards to the woman (how is she even still alive?) and (mostly) to the wellbeing of the children (which, as I said, you explained this very well and even brought up some disturbing points that even I didn't think of at the time). Maybe the parents are not meaning to do this out of bad intentions, but still, this is very much "nuts" and cringeworthy when more things besides "family" is considered. And, like you said, family is not everything.
I am very sorry if I caused a misunderstanding.
Other than that awesome stamp
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a monday night at 12:00a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death.
Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if u copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes u will have the best day of ur life tomorrow. u will either get kissed or asked out, if u break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. in 53 mins someone will say i love you or im
