 After all the whoop la with the baby 19 she had born 3 1/2 months early cause of her age and # of pregnancies... she had preeclampsia.. which when your older mom if you get it the likelihood of you getting it again is very high... what do you think?

 

Is it for media attention?

They seem to have tons of money to have kids. The show pays them plenty for their story...

So what do you think?

 I feel sorry for the kids for many reasons, which I don't feel like listing again. See other Duggar post for my opinion.

They run a really successful business and have raised the children great. I think it's a bit risky considering the previous preaclampsia situation. I defnintely do not think it's for attention, they're part of the "full quiver" religous movement, so it's part of their beliefs to continue having as many children as God see's fit.- Their words.

 Not everybody lives on CM and sees every post. She may not have seen the previous posts. This is America, you know.

Hence the plural "people" instead of singling out one person. Also, the "this is America" is kinda pointless. Just sayin.

i think its irresponsible & selfish!  its  not safe for her kids and unborn baby. the kids she has now needs her. and if something were to happen to her, her kids will suffer. really selfish!

Those kids all seem happy and well adjusted. They can afford them, so why not? I'd rather have the Duggars having a 20th kid then someone on welfare having a 2nd.

BTW- She had preeclampsia because she had to have emergency gallbladder surgery.

I think its risky however my sister believes in the same thing. She has 7 boys and is pregnant with #8 -a little girl. :) I want as many as god gives us however I don't think we will try so hard after this next pregnancy. :)
