THE LIBERAL MORMON CASE FOR LARGE FAMILIES I examine the possible long-term effects of birth rates among different groups of people and review some recent studies on the topic. Why might a liberal Mormon choose a large family? To what extent is family size indicative of orthodoxy? What are the effects of large families on parents, children, and society? How does prophetic encouragement of relatively large families fit into a liberal worldview?
