159. You and I normally agree but in this case
I wonder how much of this was an informed and educated decision and how much was forced upon her via a simple but effective guilt trip.

The father has said before that the first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage and that when they went to a "doctor" (loosely put in this case) he informed them that God created the miscarriage as a punishment for using birth control. They believed him and now here they are, 17 children later.

I wonder what would have happened if they'd gone to a doctor who had actually sat down with them and explained how common a miscarriage is and that many times the woman doesn't even realize she was pregnant when she miscarried. I suspect that their decision would have been much different.
