The Duggar clan gained fame infamy in their reality television series, “19 Kids and Counting” which aired on TLC for seven years until its cancellation in 2015.
The show focuses on the religious life of the Duggar family, who are fundamentalists who discuss ad nauseum their values of modesty, purity and faith in God. The Duggars eschew all forms of birth control, ergo their ever -expanding brood. Needless to say, they are also opposed to abortion, with no exceptions for incest, rape or to save the life of the mother.
The Duggar children are homeschooled, ensuring that they won’t be exposed to any ideas that clash with their medieval interpretation of the Bible.
The Duggars are so vehemently opposed to abortion, which they consider murder, that they helped pass a near-total abortion ban in their home state of Arkansas.
Last week, Jessa Duggar shared some heartbreaking news with fans. She posted a video on YouTube, where she tearfully revealed that she had suffered a miscarriage during the 2022 holiday season.
Her evangelical fans showered her with words of sympathy, and they praised her courage for publicly confessing that she suffered a miscarriage. Unfortunately, many women still feel shame in admitting that they had a miscarriage. Even people who despise Jessa’s evangelical beliefs expressed sympathy and concern.
“Due to risks of complications with passing the fetus at home, she said she decided to check in to a hospital to perform a dilation and curettage procedure to remove the fetus from her womb.”
The medical procedure known as “dilation and curettage” is abortion, plain and simple. Jessa Duggar is a hypocrite and a fraud, she didn’t have a miscarriage, she had an abortion.
Jessa is a typical hypocritical evangelical, who don’t live what they preach. Evangelicals rail against pornography, but it shouldn’t be surprising that PornHub is more popular in the Bible Belt than it is in blue sates like California and New York. Evangelicals demonize gays and lesbians, but they have not condemned Mat Schlapp the Chairman of the powerful and influential Conservative Political Action Coalition, who has been credibly accused of sexually assaulting a young man. Evangelical women may boisterously protest against abortion, but if they find themselves inconveniently pregnant, they will conveniently suffer a “miscarriage.”
Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric of evangelicals, they are hypocrites, frauds and liars.
