Hmm, it seems governments are making no secrets of their policies, now. Read this http://cnsnews.com/news/article/obama-adviser-argued-kids-big-families-have-lower-iqs
In particular this point:''The Obama administration has issued a regulation, set to take effect on Aug. 1, that will require all health-care plans in the United States to cover sterilizations, artificial contraceptives and abortifacients without any fees or co-pay. Many American religious leaders, including all of the nation's Roman Catholic bishops, have denounced the regulation as an attack on religious liberty because it will force many Americans to act against their consciences and the teachings of their faith.''
So, in other words, they are spending time giving negative representations of large families. So, in time no one in their right mind would want a large family, and those who do, are considered mentally unstable. Already a fact in Germany.
There are negatives about any family, that much is true, and of course large families are not exempt. However using all these controls is the devil's work to kill, steal, and destroy. Satan hates new life, especially born to Christian parents.
It is my conviction that children are a blessing from God, and that to murder through abortion, or an abortifacient birth control, is against God. Birth control was hailed as liberating to women, but has it really? By limiting families to one, or two, has it really given women freedom and power to do their thing? It was Eve's sin to want what she didn't have, and surely it is also discontentment, and being unthankful.
So let's look at the positives. If we are raising a large family for the Lord, then nothing can be more important. It can also be extremely fulfilling, too. The key is, we are servants, and this is what we have to remember. We are not here to serve ourselves, but to serve others. There is a joy in that.
In my 17 years of raising 10 children I have noticed several things:
1)They actually get more attention. As they get attention from siblings too, and there is always someone to play with/
2)Lots of conflict resolution is a positive thing, especially when it is done in a biblical, and loving way.
3) Good for the environment, believe it or not, as we utilise our resources well, hand down, and do not waste!
4) Less selfish, and learn that they have to work as a team, and that everybody's input is important.
