Everyone that has the means and emotional stability should raise as many children as they can afford to raise.

I too saw that movie and I don’t see this as a black and white issue....you either have 18 kids or you are an abortion loving monster?

I think that the Lord gave us minds to think with and we can do better than that.

And the Lord gave us hearts to feel with. Whether 3,000 years ago or today the same pattern repeats itself. Wealth seems to cause people’s hearts to harden against children. Combine that with Socialism dumbing down and infantilizing Western society and you have a bunch of people who can only think of themselves and only of today.

Here’s an excerpt on a Jewish teaching on wealth vs. children.

The tribes of Reuven and Gad also showed a flawed orientation toward their children in valuing their possessions first, as seen in their request to Moshe: “We will build here sheepfolds for our livestock, and cities for our children” (Bamidbar, 32:16). Rashi notes, on the basis of Tanchuma 7, that “They were more concerned about their possessions than about their sons and daughters, since they spoke first about their livestock and then about their children.” Moshe corrected them by placing priorities in the proper order, telling them to first “build for yourselves cities for your children” and afterwards “enclosures for your sheep” (there, verse 24).

When Americans decide to place children above their wealth and possessions we’ll see a positive fertility rate once again.
