Quiverfull Sect

© Eric R. Pianka

Members of the evangelical Christian Protestant "Quiverfull" sect liken a woman's womb to a quiver full of arrows destined to become souls. A women's duty is to send as many offspring as she can bear off to Heaven. Children are seen as a blessing from God and Quiverfull adherents oppose any and all forms of contraception. In fact, this religious movement began as a reaction to widespread adoption of birth control.
