What does «Quiverfull» mean in spanish?
- Quiverfull is a relatively recent movement among conservative evangelical Protestant Christian couples, primarily in the United States, but with some adherents in Canada, and with additional claims of adherents in Australia, New Zealand, England and elsewhere. Its distinctive view is to eagerly receive children as blessings from God, eschewing all forms of contraception, including natural family planning and sterilization. The movement consciously rejects feminism. "Our bodies are meant to be a living sacrifice," write the Hesses. Or, as Mary Pride, in another of the movement's founding texts, The Way Home: Beyond Feminism, Back to Reality, puts it, "My body is not mine." This refutation of the feminist health text Our Bodies, Ourselves is deliberate. Shivering women are more than mothers. They are domestic warriors in the battle against what they see as forty years of destruction for women's liberation: contraception, women's race, abortion, divorce, homosexuality, and child abuse, in that order. Someone of this persuasion might call himself a "full trembler," "full trembler," "trembler-minded," or simply "QF" Christian. Roman Catholics and some others might refer to the Quiverfull position as Providentialism, while the popular press has recently referred to the movement as a manifestation of natalism.
