Just because I don't use birth control does not make me irresponsible. Someone told me that the other day and I still cannot believe that I was lumped into the 'irresponsible' crowd. So because we have more than one or two kids does that make us irresponsible? We are not in a race with anyone to have the world's largest family. We believe God will give us the right number of children because we are open to His Will.
My husband and I are raising our children to be responsible, productive, God-fearing, and contributing members to our society. We don't rely on government programs (aside from our small Obamacare tax credit since our insurance is through the roof - if you're going to go all technical) and we believe in holding ourselves and our children accountable for our and their actions.
So to the person who thinks that it is irresponsible of me (and really us) for not using birth control... When you get old and wonder who is going to be taking care of you and making payments into the Social Security system so you can get your money (if the system is even around then) you can thank our kids because they'll be the ones with the jobs and they'll be the ones with the values instilled in them to keep our country on the right track!
