Read this story:
A mom of four became pregnant with three of her kids despite “religiously” using the contraceptive pill and condoms.
In a bid to put a stop to her ever-expanding brood, the super-fertile 29-year-old is now demanding her hubby has the snip.
Becky and Ed Gower now have four kids under the age of 5.
Despite their best efforts, using the pill and then condoms failed the couple three times.
And while they are over the moon at their three sons and daughter, Ed is set to have a vasectomy, to lower the risk of any more surprises.
Becky became pregnant with Dylan, now 5, while she was taking the combined pill.
The couple were thrilled at their surprise, and even decided to give their baby son a little brother, Archie, now 4, just a year later.
But, deciding their family was now complete, Becky then went back on the pill, taking the mini pill religiously at the same time each night, as directed.
She became pregnant for a third time with baby Finn, now 2, within a matter of weeks.
After giving up on the pill, she and Ed decided to use condoms as a contraceptive — but after one split, she was forced to rely on the morning-after pill.
She was stunned to discover she was pregnant again with Cora, now 1.
Now, the family of six have decided enough is enough, and Ed is planning on having a vasectomy to stop their family growing any further.
Of course, it is possible that the parents were incompetent in the use of their birth control techniques. But that’s beside the point, that they never intended to have FOUR children. Every child that is born should be wanted and loved, without exception. Otherwise, we might end up with more horror stories like this:
A shocking scene of filth and depravity was uncovered in a quiet California neighborhood — where a dozen emaciated siblings were found shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks after a 13th managed to escape the nightmare, police said Monday.
The siblings — ranging in age from 2 to 29 — were allegedly being held captive by their parents inside a Perris, Calif., home, about 70 miles east of Los Angeles, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.
The discovery was made after a 17-year-old girl escaped from the hell house on Sunday morning and called cops on a cellphone she managed to sneak out with her.
Police soon located the teen, who they said looked emaciated and appeared to be about 10 years old, the network said. The girl then told officers about her 12 siblings shackled inside the home.
Cops found five children inside the home malnourished, unwashed and shackled with chains and padlocks. Seven more captives were adults — ages 18 to 29 — but appeared young due to malnutrition.
Once freed from captivity, the siblings said they were “starving,” according to the Los Angeles Times, and were given food before being taken to the hospital.
Parents David Allen Turpin, 57, and Louise Anna Turpin, 49, were taken into custody for the nightmarish conditions inside their home.
“The parents were unable to immediately provide a logical reason why their children were restrained in that manner,” the sheriff’s department said in a statement.
Public records show the couple filed for bankruptcy in 2011. David listed his employer as defense contractor Northrop Grumman.
David’s mother, Betty Turpin, told The Post she was surprised by the allegations and called her son a “very good man.”
“He is very protective of the kids,” she said. “Everything is always in order.”
The grandmother said she hadn’t seen her grandchildren in a few years because they lived too far away.
Neighbors were appalled to hear about the house of horrors just down the block.
Abortion should always be a legal option for women who want to limit their family sizes. Also, any woman who wants to have a hysterectomy to prevent future pregnancies, whether they already have children or not, should be allowed to get one. And men who are married should be required to have a vasectomy if their wives make clear to them they do not want any more children. Otherwise, they should be divorced.
Anti-abortion activists are not “pro-life”. They are pro-forced birth. Forcing a girl or woman to have a baby she does not want is no better than raping her outright. Can we all admit that?
