Quoting Quiverfull: More Love Via More Babies?

by Michelle Duggar from ABC News – Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Trying For Baby Number 20

“My daughter, Jill, said to us, ‘Mom, Dad, I don’t understand why people would say that. Love really, truly multiplies…it doesn’t divide. When you have more people in the family, there is that many more people to spread love all around!’” she said. “I think Jill said it very wisely; love does multiply. It’s a joy, because there are that many more people and that much more love in the house!”

She also scoffs at the idea that she’s contributing to overpopulation, calling the concept “overrated.”

“I think that there is this ideology that goes behind overpopulation that I don’t really agree with. It’s a different perspective and that’s where people have their different ideas, and that’s okay,” she said. “That’s what makes the world go around; there are many different ideas and different perspectives about certain topics.”
