That is too much. I bet they are so happy to have some of the kids getting to working age. They can start shelling out some money. I just can't WAIT until one of these kids is on the national news for being the rebellious one and getting into sex and drugs. Out of 18 kids, surely one will go wild and live it up! I smell a tell all book!

Having money is no excuse to act a fool :rolleyes: I don't care what these parents say, there is no way in bloody hell they have the time to give their children individual attention. I especially feel for the older kids, who have no choice but to help raise their young siblings. :help: UGH

Wow! That's a lot of kids. I wasn't the list bit surprised to see all the girls in dressess with long brownish hair either. They remind me of the Church of God people who used to live across town from us. We used to call them "saved."

Well, just like I support a woman's right to choose an abortion, I support a woman's right to have 18+ children.

I'm sorry. That's too many children.
Stories like this make me realize that China really isn't off-base with some of its policies.
What really annoys me are the people that have septuplets and shit and then want handouts and a show on discovery.
Bitch noone told you to take that fertility drug like that.

as long as she can raise them without depending upon handouts

whats truly bad is people refusing to take abortions if they can't raise their child

What's even worse is women who use abortion as a birth control device.

i would think having abortions is way better than bringing an unwanted child into the world and not being able to take care of him/her
be careful but even the best preventive/contraceptive devices can't prevent pregnancy or AIDS 100% unless u r totally abstinent
and we all know how well abstinence works
it only leads to more pregnancies because sex is mostly unplanned for virginity pledge teenagers

No one NEEDS 18 kids, this is bullshit. I don't care if they can support the kids, the last thing the world needs is 18+ extra bodies to have trouble finding jobs and pollute the earth.

Sorry? :o I just think it's insane to have 18 kids when there aren't enough jobs for people around now.

I'm no medical professional, but I know women who have had five or six abortions, and all those procedures can't be good for a woman's reproductive system. If you don't want to have children, then don't get pregnant. Period.

Which is worse: one family having 18 children they can support, or 18 families having one child they can't support?

they wouldn't be healthy enough to support six pregnancies either in that case
no one is arguing that prevention is not better

I'll keep saying these parents are selfish :fiery: It really doesn't matter how much love is in the family, they're raising the kids to be anti-social. Their only life experience is being in a large family and only knowing that way of life. Forget friggin college, I especially feel sad for the girls :sad: when asked what they want to be when they grow up, they all replied, "to get married and have a lot of children." :rolleyes: Raising kids for the sole purpose of being spouses and parents is abnormal if you asked me :help:

am i missing something?
are the parents living off welfare?
are the children running riot?
are they being a drain on society?
no i didnt think so! as far as i can tell they are being raised in a loving environment where they are being well taken care of.
so what if theres loads of them? does it really matter?
i didnt read anywhere that the girls were being taught to get married and be housewives.
people complain when there are families living off benefits with children being unruly and here you have an example of parents doing a good job and youre still not happy!

OMG, their kids=their property=their buisness.

Personally I think there are some positives of being raised in such a big families. Thos children will not get many atention from parents and will quickly learn how to carry about theirself. Will learn aboot responsibillity, individuality and economy. Thos kids will have an easier future than most of ballless wimps who were spoiled by parents in childhood...
