"The most immoral practice of the day is breeding too many children."
"The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
1.5 million babies are surgically aborted each year
Sadly, as a result of the abortifacient effects of the pill and other "contraceptives," an additional 8-12 million babies are chemically aborted each year in the US alone.

It breaks my heart to know I was on the pill (even though it was only for a couple of years) and I didn't know I could still get pregnant. I had no idea the pill would cause my body to reject the baby and get rid of it. Ack. I hate thinking about it. I haven't touched the pill since I found out about it in 2002.

Since finding out about the pill I started practicing a loose form of Natural Family Planning, yes, I've had a few "surprises". So what? What incredible blessings they have been to my life. So did NFP work for me? Yes, because I could easily get pregnant every year since nursing doesn't prevent ovulation. I calculated it and I'd have at least 12-13 by now. I only have 6. Some believe you should trust God with how many children you have, some don't. I guess that is something each person needs to pray about and come to their own conclusion. Either way never involves murder though.
|My sixth (Caleb)|
Ever since I got pregnant with my 6th (in 2008) I have been attacked mercilessly. Within a week of finding out I was pregnant I had attacks that blew me away. Online and even in my personal email box. A friend even spread lies for everyone to see. They later said they didn't know the details, but just had some "assumptions" about our life. It still hurt very bad and bad enough that we left out of state for a week to get away from it. You can imagine how scared I was to share when I became pregnant with my 7th in 2011. I had miscalculated my ovulation and it had been a year and a half since my last baby. I was surprised but yet again I had the attitude and understanding that children are a gift. I was still terrified to share knowing that with each one I had would come with more persecution from every side. Online and in my personal life and surprisingly even from Christian folk from church.

This whole pregnancy I've received about 80% negative from people. This time I'm putting my foot down. I'm not gonna allow myself to be bullied any longer. I'm not gonna allow my heart to be sad nor will I let anyone make me feel ashamed. Sure, I worry about what people think. Don't we all? I have to be stronger is standing up for what is holy and righteous. Even Christians attacking large families is wrong and completely unbiblical. I've been cornered (literally) with accusations, assumptions, and anger from people. This precious child in my womb is a gift from God and I won't allow her to come into this world wrapped in shame and negativity from others. If you don't want kids, that is your life and no one is forcing you to have any. Welcome to the land of the free. Are you able to murder your own babies here? Yes, and the government and even your friends will back you up. But don't attack those that choose to cherish life. Enough with all the Save the Whales and Hug a Tree. Those are nice but what about Protect Human Life? I've yet to see a film like that in the theaters. If it seems I am upset in writing this post, I am. This world is so backwards in how it thinks and I am tired of seeing what is pure and clean be so attacked.
