“Because really, the entire population of the world, if they were stood shoulder to shoulder, could fit in the city limits of Jacksonville. So if you realize that aspect of it, you realize that we’re nowhere near being overpopulated. We’ve had other countries coming to our doorstep, asking us to please let their people know that they need to have more children. They are seeing that their death rates are outnumbering their birth rates and they’re in crisis.” – Michelle Duggar, speaking to the Christian Broadcasting Network.
RELATED: Duggar mentions Jacksonville because it’s the largest Florida city by population and the largest in the United States by area. This was accomplished by the 1968 consolidation of Duval County and the city of Jacksonville. Jacksonville is also the 11th largest city in the country by population, another “city limits technicality” that places it ahead of San Francisco, Boston, Washington, and many other better known places.
