God-Called Blessings Now Burdens to the Modern Woman

Has anyone watched this documentary?  I saw the trailer and read this article and it makes sense.  Here are some quotes from the article:
"..the most important factor is a culture (including Hollywood, the news media and academia) that tells people that children are a burden, rather than a joy; that pushes an ego-driven, live-for-the-moment ethic; a culture that tells us that contentment comes from careers, love, friendship, pets, possessions, travel, personal growth - anything and everything except family and children. It's a culture that can look at Sarah Palin and her beautiful family and ask why she had to have 5 children and why she didn't abort her child with Downs syndrome."

That really just sums it up huh?  What truth!  My husband and I were talking tonight about those today that actually seek to be barren.  Why not just pray "God please make me barren" "God I don't want these blessings called children, please spare me!"?   Instead of begging God to open their womb - the modern woman begs to be barren or finds some way to get the same effect and if one slips through, oh that's ok - we can just kill it now with the state funded abortion procedure.  

Then the women that want a lot of kids or actually even just one.......are ridiculed and called names because they are weird!  I get it all the time when I tell people I've always wanted at least 5 kids.  They look at you like you are some alien from another planet.  Most people don't know that I was unable to have children until I sought God with tears and sadness and asked him to open my womb!  He did!!  The first time after I prayed that we had tried, I conceived!  My daughter is a blessing and a miracle from my Lord!  I want however many God wants to bless us with and hope there is more.

It is probably a good thing that some women are not reproducing.  Take for instance the feminist's.  They flaunt their barrenness and say how good they got it without kids.  I say, it is probably good they are not making offspring - wouldn't you agree?  Less children raised with that mindset the better I guess you could say.  However, even raised with that mindset there is hope, this famous feminist's daughter came out years later against her own Mother, you can read about that here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1021293/How-mothers-fanatical-feminist-views-tore-apart-daughter-The-Color-Purple-author.html Here are some quotes from her 'testimony':

"Then there is the issue of not having children. Even now, I meet women in their 30s who are ambivalent about having a family. They say things like: 'I'd like a child. If it happens, it happens.' I tell them: 'Go home and get on with it because your window of opportunity is very small.' As I know only too well. Then I meet women in their 40s who are devastated because they spent two decades working on a PhD or becoming a partner in a law firm, and they missed out on having a family. Thanks to the feminist movement, they discounted their biological clocks. They've missed the opportunity and they're bereft. Feminism has betrayed an entire generation of women into childlessness. It is devastating."

Notice how she sums it up at the end:

"I am my own woman and I have discovered what really matters  -  a happy family."
