Thumbs Down: The Duggar Family



Yes, they seem like good parents, yes unlike many they seem to be able to financially support their children, yes it is their right to have as many as they wish.

But...

Why is it when I see the Duggar's on TV (as they were this morning on The Today Show announcing the upcoming birth of their 20th child) I still get a little sick feeling my stomach.

Not the Octomom by any stretch yet I cannot but think of the millions, yes millions of children in the US, in the world parent less putting their heads on their pillows each night dreaming of a parent/parents to give them love, a home. This world is so overcrowded, why not have 2, 3 even 4 of your own, then if you have more love to give share it with a child desperately in need. No matter how you cut it in 20 years you know the 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th and above Duggar children are going to be on whatever is the 'Oprah' show of the day talking about they never felt wanted or loved. There is no way with 20 children in the house they can possible all feel special, they have become numbers and number 20 is their way!

A M E N !!!!!!!! And she had to deliver baby #19 VERY prematurely because of health problems. You know they are getting financial help somewhere down the line. And I am sure their kids are probably going to reproduce almost as badly. I cannot see a reason for having (or wanting) 20 kids to begin with. No one can provide the attention to all of them that they need/deserve. Where the hell is Lorena Bobbit when someone needs her??
