Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar of Springdale, Ark. are ready, or so they say. The family will welcome their 17th child on July 27, when Jennifer Danielle is due.

She will join Joshua, 19; John David, 17; Janna, 17; Jill, 15; Jessa, 14; Jinger, 13; Joseph, 12; Josiah, 11; Joy-Anna, 10; Jeremiah, 8; Jedidiah, 8; Jason, 7, James, 5; Justin, 4; and Jackson Levi, 2; and Johanna Faith, 19 months.

You will note that "Jethro" remains unused.

The Associated Press reports that Michelle Duggar is thrilled to once again be a mom. Thrilled, and perhaps delusional:
"Here I am a mama with her 17th child on the way, and so many people think 'Oh you've got it all figured out,'" she said.
Anyone out there think she's got it all figured out?

The OBGYN, Dr. Monk, who delivered Julian had 15 kids, the youngest being a pair of 10-month-old twins. The man must really like what he does.

I think it's wonderful! Of course the people of this world cannot wrap their minds around the idea of having this many children. It's odd, it's weird, it's just not normal to you all. How sad that society has had such a negative influence on us concerning children.
Many say the Duggars are selfish and irresponsible and all kinds of childish names. Well you know what? Look at that family? At least they are together...they are doing their best to serve the Lord, doing their best to raise the family according to the Word of God. Many people don't believe in God so they have no concept of why Christians do the things they do. Christians live according to the Word of God, not according to some standard the world has or what's "right" by the ways of the world.
What's normal for society now is for teegage girls to get abortions and not telling their parents, that's considered okay, but when someone chooses life over birth control and abortion, they are considered out cast. How backwards.

I think Dawn is correct. We should all aspire to have as many children as possible, and then get them all an SUV and make sure they buy as much cheap disposable junk from Wal-Mart as possible.

People need to start getting realistic about how the Earth is going to sustain an ever-growing population.

The Earth is going to continue to diminish and decompose whether you are enviromentally friendly or not. We don't have control over tornados, hurricanes, droughts, wildfires, etc.
Over population is a MYTH! I live in Germany and everyone is crammed together in thes small apartments while thousands and thousands of miles of unused land just sits there (Heaven forbid a tree gets cut down).
I have also lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Illinois, Florida, and Indiana and there are thousands of acres of land just there...sitting there...

Whatever, Army Brat.
Jesco Dugger also remains unused. Wonder why they've doubled up on Josephs?
