What Do The Duggars Really Think About Using Contraception?

"19 Kids and Counting" introduced the world to the Duggars, an ultra-conservative Christian family residing in rural Arkansas that live every aspect of their lives according to what they think God's will is. Although they are famous for not placing a limit on family size, not all of them have always been opposed to the use of birth control.
In fact, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were only planning to have a few children when they first married. Michelle went back on the pill after her first child, but when she became pregnant nonetheless and lost the baby, she and her husband erroneously blamed the tragedy on contraception and decided to never use it again.
In contrast to her parents, Jill Duggar Dillard believes that while children are indeed a blessing, it’s not necessarily right to have as many of them as possible. She and her husband Derick currently have two children and use non-hormonal methods of contraception to avoid, in their words, “anything that could potentially cause an abortion.”
