The Quiverfull Movement is a lifestyle among fundamentalist Christians which believes that an abundance of children is in compliance with God's perfect will.  Contraception equals abortion, a heinous sin against God, so the only "family planning" that's done is a prayer to the sky that His will be done.  The Quiverfull Movement is highly patriarchal and often has a dark side in relation to the rights of women and children.

In this episode, we explore The Quiverfull Movement, we speak with Kathryn Joyce, author of the book: "Quiverfull: Inside the Christian Patriarchy Movement," and we speak to some who once experienced this culture inside its walls, including Vykie Garrison, who hosts the online community, "No Longer Quivering."
