** Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands treated her consort Henry as this. She was stern, religious, and frugal. He was gregarious, good humoured and had difficulty in accepting his weak position within the power structure.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Ramsay Bolton's [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy, jealous mistress]] catches [[spoiler: Sansa]] trying to escape and implies that he will dismember her to the point of leaving her an immobile quadriplegic who can't escape again, but fulfill the only reasons Ramsay keeps her around: to birth legitimate children, and pacify the North by technically remaining married to House [[spoiler: Stark]]. Have I mentioned [[NightmareFuelStationAttendant Ramsay might actually do that]]?

* The page quote originates from a bit of flavor text you can find in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', and stems from both the Nazi's own reputed "breeding program", and fits the German belief of the time that a woman should [[StayInTheKitchen occupy herself with Kitchen, Kurche unt Kinder]] -- that is, Kitchen, Church, and Child-rearing. Obersturmbanfuhrer Frau Engel also mentions at one point that she's served the Reich as a good German woman should be birthing half a dozen "Aryan" children for it.

* German politician Frauke Petry of the {{AfD}} party wants a [[http://www.noz.de/deutschland-welt/politik/artikel/500073/afd-petry-will-volksentscheid-uber-abtreibung referendum]] to restrict abortion (which is not technically legal in Germany, merely ''tolerated'' in some cases) even more. She also is of the opinion that each German woman should have at least three children, to "secure the survival of our people". Why she seems to think that ''immigrants'', who are least able to go abroad for an abortion, won't have more babies, too, when they're not able to get abortions, is anyone's guess.

* In ''Literature/TheGiver'', girls are selected at the age of twelve to begin training as Birthmothers, producing offspring for the Community that are immediately taken away. Once they meet their quota, Birthmothers spend the rest of their lives as factory labourers. The system is elaborated on in ''Literature/{{Son}}'', and it is as sterile and creepy as one would expect -- the women are even referred to as "Vessels" and their children as "Products," and they give birth blindfolded as not to get attached to their offspring.
