VIDEO 19 Kids and Counting’s Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar say abortion is baby holocaust, compare America to Nazi Germany
          

Duggar Family - Ken Cuccinelli

Although 19 Kids and Counting tends to steer away from Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar’s political and religious beliefs, the prolific parents are actually quite vocal about their stances — especially when it comes to the pro-life/pro-choice debate.

Jim Bob and Michelle recently brought their younger children to Virginia to help republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli. However, the family’s presence may do more harm than good: While speaking to Values Voter Summit on Oct. 11, Jim Bob compared America’s policies on abortion to Nazi Germany’s concentration camps.

“I heard Governor Huckabee speak and he was sharing how he had taken his daughter Sarah over to one of the concentration camps… He said, as they were walking out of that concentration camp, he said little Sarah… looked up at him and said, ‘Daddy, why didn’t somebody do something?’ And, you know what? That’s where we’re at in our nation,” the former Arkansas state legislator said. “Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, ‘Why didn’t somebody do something?’”

When asked to clarify his statement, Jim Bob reportedly doubled-down.

“Let me clarify, we have since 1973 had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.”

Michelle Duggar previously used the same “baby holocaust” term while rallying for a pro-life amendment in Tennessee.

“Veterinarian clinics for animals in Tennessee have higher standards in health and safety laws than there are for the abortion clinics involving human life. We must join together and end the baby holocaust that is taking place right here in Tennessee,” Michelle said during an Oct. 7 event.

Although representatives from the Cuccinelli were quick to say they did not invite the Duggars to Virginia and aren’t officially affiliated, sources report the two families have met.

“Ken Cuccinelli needs to immediately ask his surrogate to leave Virginia,” Josh Schwerin, a spokesman for the opposing Terry McAuliffe campaign, told Washington Post. “Mr. Duggar’s divisive, hurtful and extreme rhetoric has no place in this campaign for governor.”

Josh Duggar Campaigning

When Jim Bob and Michelle do head back to Arkansas with their younger children, the next generation of Duggars are poised to continue the mission: Josh Duggar (pictured above) is the new executive director for FRC Action, a Washington-based lobbying group. Even Ben Seewald, who is courting Jessa Duggar, takes a strong stance on the pro-life/pro-choice issue. He recently tweeted, “Abortion: Would it bother us more if they used guns?”

      Hope they disappear soon. If abortion is baby holocoust then what they are doing is called a puppy mill. Who are we to tell others whether they can or can’t get an abortion? If anyone has the right to tell others not to abort then we should have the right to tell her to shut her damn legs.

      • Nathan

        And, who are we tell others that they can’t murder their neighbors?

        • jeswalsh .

          Please don’t try to compare murder to a woman’s choice. I will not go into an argument with a man who will never know what it’s like to be pregnant when they don’t want to be. Men will never go thru what women go thru because men have the easy way out. If you choose to up and leave you can do so. Women can’t. So until you can grow an 8lb baby in your womb, give birth to it and nurture it then you have no right to tell women what they can do.

          • FTLHousewife

            Abortion is murder. Women have lots of choices such as choosing to not have unprotected sex. Choosing to take an innocent unborn child’s life is murder. Feel better by calling it a fetus and not a baby? Whatever you want to call it, it’s still a living being. Besides, women think that once the abortion is over, they can go on with their lives. Not so! You never forget it.

            • jeswalsh .

              You are right, you never forget but that doesn’t mean it is not their right to choose. call it murder or whatever you want, YOU are not walking in their shoes.

              • japick

                Been there, done that, walked in those shoes. So I CAN say it’s murder, right? Or is it still not okay?

                • jeswalsh .

                  Been there, done that for your own shoes, not theirs. Again it is your opinion and your story. You are living your life and not theirs and you can’t judge a person for what they do to “their own body” Whether you like it or not it’s their body to do as they see fit. Don’t like it? deal with it. If at any point they regret that decision THEY have to live with it, not you so mind your own business.

            • spottedgiraffe

              Bugs and plants are also living beings but I bet you destroy them on the daily. Your point?

            • Margaret

              I know women who have had abortions who have gone on to do things they would have never been able to do had they had an unplanned pregnancy/child. They DID go on with their lives and don’t dwell on the past. How dare you speak about something you clearly don’t know anything about. Shame on you!

              • japick

                I know women who wanted an abortion but couldn’t get one and went on to be more happy than her friend who got an abortion at the same time… So funny that successfulness and happiness is determined by how much schooling and bullshit things that will never actually matter you can fill in. How messed up is THAT?

              • FTLHousewife

                I actually do know what I’m talking about. Believe me, you don’t forget.

                • caff

                  You mean that you never forgot. Please don’t generalise and assume that everyone is the same as you.

            • Sara

              While I agree, you never forget it sometimes it is best in some situations. Also, birth control and condoms are NOT 100% effective.

              • FTLHousewife

                I completely agree. Birth 5control and condoms are not 100% effective.

    • SheRachet

      Abortion is never the “right” decision but it can be the BEST decision for a woman and her family. It’s up to the woman to decide whether an abortion is best for her circumstances, NOT the government.

      • Krystianna

        Thank you!

      • Nathan

        Murder is never the best decision.

        • Margaret

          Nathan, regardless of what you think of abortion, I would hope that any decent human being would know that comparing abortion to the Holocaust is highly, highly offensive. As a Jewish person who knows people who are survivors, as well as people who were executed, I am disgusted by the Duggars (who are not Jewish, gay, gypsies, or any of the other minorities that were mass murdered) likening a woman’s choice to the Holocaust. If you aren’t offended, you aren’t paying attention.

          • japick

            Here is what you need to understand. You do not see ‘fetuses’ as babies, so you think comparing the holocaust to abortion is wrong. For a second, step out of your opinion and see it from someone who TRULY BELIEVES it is a baby. STEP OUT OF YOUR OPINION and pretend you believe that a FETUS (which has a heartbeat and brain activity) is a BABY. Now please tell me how, if you felt this way, it would be okay to allow this to continue to happen? Just because you don’t feel that way doesn’t make people who DO believe ‘fetuses’ are babies are wrong, they just have different opinions, and it’s a pretty big deal to just sit back and be calm when you feel mass murder is happening LEGALLY simply because people are raised differently. Oh, but you know, polygamy.. That’s some messed up stuff. (not that I’m pro-polygamy, but you’re okay with saying the government can determine how many people you marry but not whether or not you surgically remove a ‘fetus’ from your womb). Just some perspective.

          • Dinu

            During the Holocost, Hitler had brainwashed an entire nation into believing that the Jews were not quite human. We look back and wonder how on earth that could ever have happened and why more people did not stand up for them. What I think the Duggars are saying is how long will it be before enough people begin to understand that a fetus, embryo and baby are just different stages of the same thing, a human being and ending their life at any stage along that journey is murder. Once you see the precious and amazing gift that life is, you will realise what the Germans realised in horror after the war. That the masses they had stood by and watch being killed were just as human as they are. Those who dared to stand up and protect the innocent during that time risked everything but today are hailed as heros like Oscar Schindler. Those that defend the voiceless babies being murdered by the millions will one day be seen the same for they are speaking up for those who are the most defenceless and the most innocent.

    • Krystianna

      Don’t agree with abortion, don’t have one…

      • Nathan

        Don’t agree with rape, don’t rape people. Don’t agree with animal abuse, don’t abuse animals. You can apply that faulty reasoning to argue that people should never speak out against anything they disagree with.

        • LexiconD1

          Nathan, can you get pregnant? Are YOU ever going to give birth?…

          • japick

            Can I have an opinion, Lexicon? Or am I only allowed to have an opinion if it’s that fetuses are non-human blobs of tissue that don’t have brains, eyes, ears, hands, and feet and it’s totally okay to open a woman’s cervix with a tool and suck out a ‘non-human’ with a beating heart? (since most women don’t realize they are pregnant until they are close to five weeks and that’s when the heart starts beating…) Hm, maybe you don’t know as much as you think you do??? Your vagina doesn’t make you more human, and it doesn’t mean men cannot be connected to children.

            • LexiconD1

              Don’t assume to know my opinions and choices that I make for myself by a couple of lines in a post. Unless I’m specific. Like now; I wouldn’t have an abortion, because “I” think it’s wrong, for ‘me’. Unless I was raped, because I could not live with the knowledge of a child of a rapist and myself living in this world. Whether I kept it, or adopted it out. PERIOD. But, I smart enough to know that not all women feel the way I do. “I” am not in anyone elses shoes to make a CHOICE for them. By the way, if your male, than NO you shouldn’t be allowed an opinion. Until you are the one who spends nine months producing life from your own body, and have to live with the results, then you ought to shut up.

              • japick

                Except I’m a female with two children and going through a miscarriage? When you pass a ‘fetus’ at 8 weeks you can tell me it’s not a human who deserves to be protected. Until then, how about YOU shut up? And my husband is just as heartbroken as I am because our baby is just as much his. I’m sorry you’ve never met a real man who has enough heart to love his child as much as a mom can. Oh, I’m sorry. His FETUS.

                • LexiconD1

                  I’m sorry about you miscarrying. Hope you all get through it okay.

                  However…

                  I have to ask, what the hell you’re doing arguing with people on the internet while going through this? It says a lot about the type of person you are…

                • Margaret

                  I am sorry for your loss. I do however, have to agree with Lexicon. Not sure what you’re doing on a site and picking fights with people who have different points of view, instead of concentrating on yourself.

                  • kat

                    So Margaret and Lexicon, you don’t feel you have the right to tell a woman what to do with their body, but it’s okay to tell a woman how to grieve her miscarriage and judge her character by it?

                    • Margaret

                      How did I judge her? And I didn’t tell her to do anything; I am confused as to why a woman in her position is here. Don’t twist my words.

                      • kat

                        Margaret, you need to reread your comment. You say you agree with Lexicon who states that it says a lot about the type of person Japick is for commenting on an article while she is experiencing a miscarriage (that would be a judgement) and you are judging her by saying “Not sure what you’re doing on a site and picking fights with people who
                        have different points of view, instead of concentrating on yourself.” She has just as much a right to be on here, stating her opinion, as you do and you don’t have any business telling her she should be concentrating on herself (judgement). Using words like “picking fights” implies something. She is stating her opinions just like everyone else with a comment.

                      • Margaret

                        You’re reading into it, love. :)

                      • kat

                        The words we choose have certain implications, Margaret. To deny you meant any judgement by your comment is passive aggressive.

                      • Margaret

                        Again, you cannot say what I meant, only I can, because I’m the one that said it. YOU can choose to interpret them however you wish, but you can’t speak for me.

                      • kat

                        Margaret, you can say whatever you like, but your comment is there.It’s ridiculous for you to try to say it says differently. No one’s speaking for you. It is what it is. Own it.

    • sammy

      Too bad their Jesus never taught them to not judge others.

      • Nathan

        Jesus spoke out against all kinds of things. Speaking out in favor of life is not “judging.”

        • sammy

          Pretty sure if someone thinks an abortion is equivalent to contributing to the holocaust is considered judgement.

          And until you grow a vagina, your opinion on the matter is of no interest of mine. Guess how much this affects you personally? Go on, guess.

    • Lou

      Saying that abortion is wrong and that it is murder is not judging others, it is saying how you feel about that topic.

    • LexiconD1

      These are the same idiots who think the whole population of the entire Earth can fit, and live, in Jacksonville Florida…

      • Lola

        And man rode around on dinosaurs at the dawn of creation! :D Religious or not they should still educate themselves on more subjects.

    • Lola

      Although I do have my opinion about the number of children they have, I do think they provide a nice upbringing generally for their children. I wonder what they think about people that aren’t raised so ideally as them, and unfortunately end up in the position of being pregnant? It would be ideal for a 14 year old not to be pregnant, but it does happen, do they think the girl should adopt out her child? Perhaps they still blame the girl for her actions, but what if was a girl raised similarly to their daughters, and she was raped? I was also reading an article recently about the baby scoop era, from 1945-late 1970s where young unwed mothers were forced into “maternity homes” where they were basically psychologically abused and told the only way they could make up for their sin and have a chance of getting married and having a real life was to give up their babies. They were heavily coerced/some cases forced to give up their babies. In 1970 80% of babies of unwed mothers were adopted, were as in 1983 only 4% were. The decrease was also due to the pill which became available to all married women in 1965, and all unmarried women in 1972. But i do believe the Duggars don’t believe in birth control right? Interesting to learn the history on this issue and what has been tried in the past. Tough questions, tougher answers.

      • LexiconD1

        “nice upbringing”?

        I”d rather be poor, dirt poor, than a girl trapped in their cult (Google Bill Gothard, ATI). They are uneducated (Jill is never going to be a real nurse or mid-wife, she is going to be a lay mid-wife which is much different than the BS they are spewing on their ‘reality’ show), not allowed to leave the compound alone, in fact they are never allowed to be alone. They are told, from birth what to wear, how to think, the world outside is evil, be afraid of everything and everyone who’s not part of the cult is evil, immoral and scary.

        The Duggar ‘parents’ (who haven’t parented their children in YEARS) are scary, disgusting people.

        edited: Yes, it’s ALWAYS the girls fault when things go wrong, or are bad, or if they get raped…ALWAYS!

        • Lola

          Do they have extremist views on subjects, yes certainly. Do I agree with them on all their views, no. But when it comes down to they are providing food shelter clothing trying to teach them morals they do get GEDs/or diplomas(I forgot which) through homeschooling courses, not abandoning their kids to do drugs or go to jail or sit and play video games in a foreclosed house while they sit around and collect all sorts of benefits the hardworking tax payers are paying for. They do provide a “nice upbringing generally” then half of the other people I see with kids. I honestly don’t agree that their children get enough personalized attention from the parents and the older children take on the lion’s share of parenting the littler ones, and that it’s silly to be trying to have another baby and putting your life at risk when you have so many children that need a mommy at home. But many other religions have similar highly genderized roles, for example the Amish, and even as short as a few generations back in Victorian times it was the custom to be “chaperoned.” Anyways, I find it interesting to see how other people live, and I don’t always agree with it, take what you like and leave what you don’t.

          • LexiconD1

            The Amish get Rum springer, and the Victorian times, for all us regular non-elite folks, weren’t as nearly sufficating as you belive. Stop reading about the Duchess of so and so, and read about the real people of the times.

            These poor kids never get time to even think for themselves. They aren’t being ‘parented’ they are being programed. Everything they do, think or say has been imputed into them by their parents and their leader.

            I feel sorry for them.

            If you know so many people who are so awful of parents, I got to wonder about where you live, and what type of people you associate with?…

          • Margaret

            Since when does “not abandoning their kids to do drugs or go to jail or sit and play video games in a foreclosed house” make for a “nice upbringing?” Sounds like you have low expectations for parents, haha

          • anjealka

            It is starting to show 19 is too many. The first 3 got GED’s, the next 5 did not, they just finish home school at 16, so basically it is like dropping out of high school at 16. What have Jessa and Jinger been doing the last 4-5 years since they left homeschool? Not college? No a job, Michelle has said Jessa has been in charge of the younger ones schooling. So a young lady that is 21 who left school at 16 has no GED is teaching the youngest 10. Michelle no longer sits at the dining room table teaching. She admitted she needs a app to track her kids birthdays & schedule times to talk.

      • anjealka

        I also disagree with a “nice upbringing”. I would rather be born polygamist(at least over 50% finish college) then ATI/Gothard/Duggar. The Duggars have basic needs met, like clothing, food, shelter but they face basically no choices in life. My husband grew up poor with over 20 siblings but it gave him drive to reach his dreams. He sat on the roof of his trailer(yes a 1 bathroom trailer) & would look up at the big homes on the hill every night. He now owns a home on that hill. He worked multiple jobs, got an education and built the life he dreamed of. The Duggars kids will never get THIER OWN dreams, only their parents preplanned “robot” like course in life. Sad.

    • Tamtam

      So sad that there are people like this. Why can’t they understand that its not their body, they don’t get an opinion, and not everyone a) wants children at all or b) can provide for them if they do want and are smart about it.

    • anjealka

      I grew up in a strict catholic home, 12 years of catholic school so pro-life was driven into my head. I went to college and had an opportunity to go inside an abortion clinic and talk to women. I was shocked! First off it was not full of unmarried teen moms. There were many women over 40, who thought they hit menopause, women in abusive marriages, graduate students. While I might not get an abortion, it did change my mind over what I had been preached to for years. I wish the Duggars would go to a clinic and really meet the people there, instead of the stereotypes they talk about after they go to a “seminar”.

      • kat

        If you look at statistics from the Guttmacher Institute, you will find that seventy-five percent of women who have abortions are in their teens or twenties. Fifty percent of women who have abortions, have had an abortion previously (you can verify this at the Guttmacher Institute’s website).

    • anjealka

      The Duggar’s like the pro-life talks, marches, holding signs but what are they doing to help the pregnant person that decides not to have an abortion? These groups that spend so much time preaching do very little to actually help. When I was pregnant, it was very high risk so I moved 4 hours away. My husband worked long hours. I knew nobody in the city. I called one of these pregnancy anti abortion help centers. I asked if they could give me a ride to the doctors. NO! They offered me clothes and a used crib, which I did not need. Not one of the places would offer any of their time, just donations. Ironically I ended up getting a ride from a lesbian couple expecting twins going to the same high risk clinic. Holding a sign or talking is not helping some who does choose life. Michelle always says she has 10 kids driving and 2 lay midwives, maybe the Duggars need to walk the walk and start offering rides, medical care, and real help.

      • Jenn

        AMEN! The women who decide to not have abortions are usually the ones that end up on welfare. And according to all these pro-life people, they are just drains on society and lazy and should get jobs to support their families. Pro-lifers only care about life that it is in the womb. “Life” that can’t for the first several months be sustained out of the womb.Abortion will NEVER be illegal again so it’s time to move on more important issues like getting people off welfare and creating jobs and investing in education.

    • DeeDeDee

      Per Jessa’s comment about whether it would bother me if they used a gun… I totally just imagined Yosemite Sam pull a fetus out and shooting at it with all the cartoon sound affects and missing every time.

      Woops.

    • SharkCity

      These “parents” have their older kids raising the younger ones; all this woman does is “birth” these babies then leave the siblings to raise them. This family is disgusting to say the least and they have no business making statements about a woman’s right’s. One of these kids is going to make a run out to the real world and end up writing a book of how jacked up their life was within their compound.

      • LexiconD1

        That’s one Duggar book I’m willing to spend my money buying…

    • Dani

      They are ones to talk! What about purposefully trying to make babies with your crusty old ovaries and uterus that will most likely result in miscarriage or stillbirth?

    • Cassandra

      No one, including them, has a place talking about what a woman* chooses to do with a non-sentient non-autonomous fetus who drains resources and is a health risk. Especially not until they themselves stop overpopulating the world and overconsuming through their reproductive choices, and instead adopt a child who was unwanted or could not be supported by the mother/father, AND pay for all the medical expenses involved in a pregnancy. These people are absolutely disgusting.

      • spottedgiraffe

        Exactly. Why aren’t these pro-lifers adopting the children that aren’t aborted when the mother doesn’t want them. The kids are thrown into foster care.

        • japick

          Do you know how hard and expensive it is to adopt a child in America? Extremely. Maybe you can start a campaign on making adoption easier. Or just support abortion. It’s not murder if America benefits from it, right? You know who felt that way about unwanted Jews? Hitler. Holy f*#(ing backwards.

        • kat

          That is completely false. There is a surplus of adoptive parents wanting to adopt infants. Children in foster care aren’t always available for adoption and are usually much older when they are released for adoption.

    • lila

      He didn’t compare it to abortion! hE just said that america should do something about before it’s to late! Guy’s you should listen the whole speach, not just 1 minute!

        “I heard Governor Huckabee speak and he was sharing how he had taken his daughterSarah over to one of the concentration camps… He said, as they were walking out of that concentration camp, he said little Sarah… looked up at him and said, ‘Daddy, why didn’t somebody do something?’ And, you know what? That’s where we’re at in our nation,” the former Arkansas state legislator said. “Do we want our children, when we’re going to tell them about how great America was, they’re going to look at you and say, ‘Why didn’t somebody do something?’”

        When asked to clarify his statement, Jim Bob reportedly doubled-down.

        “Let me clarify, we have since 1973 had 55 million abortions, so what we have going on is a baby holocaust.”
        -
        Taken from the article above. Yes, he did compare the slaughtering of millions to abortion.

    • FTLHousewife

      I don’t see anything offensive. One of the definitions of a holocaust is a thorough destruction involving extensive loss of life especially through fire. What happened in Nazi Germany was definitely a holocaust. I think the term can be appropriately applied here too considering that there have been over 54 million abortions since 1973. Sorry, my opinion.

    • spottedgiraffe

      Baby holocaust? If anything it would be a FETUS holocaust. I feel like these people think it’s a little tiny baby from the beginning. No. It’s a tadpole looking thing that can’t even think or feel. Using the word holocaust is also sick and insensitive to survivors of the REAL holocaust. Of course the Duggars don’t care. They only care about people when they’re in utero then when they’re out the interest is lost. The evidence is their own children who they don’t care for and force the oldest daughters to take care of. Sick people.

      • japick

        Speaking as a teenaged mother who did NOT want to have children EVER who could not AFFORD a child and had NO HELP and didn’t even LIKE children I can tell you seven years later it is the ABSOLUTE BEST thing that could have happened to me. My parents were pro-life and I was under 18, thankfully. We now have a seven year old in GIFTED AND TALENTED, an almost two year old who is extremely smart and happy, I have an amazing husband.. And we recently lost a ‘FETUS’ as you chose to call it (you’re an absolute animal if you TRULY think that) at 8 weeks pregnant. So feel free to tell me you’ve walked in those shoes. People can overcome adversity and children will change people for the better if you allow them to. I also realized I’m a lot less selfish person than I was. I’m pro-contraceptives, anti-abortion, pro-adoption, and pro and program that helps struggling mothers. I said HELPS, not enables. And HOLY HELL, you mean they are raising their children to be responsible? INSANITY.

        • japick

          And by ‘we’ I don’t mean my son’s biological father. He has never been involved or paid child support. I met my husband when OUR oldest was a year old.

        • spottedgiraffe

          You’re the animal if you value a 5 week old fetus more than the life of the mother that has to carry it. And you clearly didn’t do it on your own your parents helped hence why they wouldn’t let you abort in the first place.

        Do you know that there are some doctors who believe you should be able to kill the baby until it is self aware? Babies aren’t self aware until fifteen-eighteen months old.

      Maybe these people should focus on FORCED abortions which are against the will of mothers and fathers before they attack people who simply do not have the resources to take care of a child. However in this case, it is a decision made by a woman whereas with forced abortions, the woman is being dominated by a (mostly) male authority. So I guess that’s why it’s ok?

      Can we please bring back “anti-choice”, because that’s really what it is about.

      wow.. i feel like i walked into a war zone reading all these comments my PERSONAL opinion is: if you become pregnant out of pure ignorance and knowingly can not afford to care for your child there are plenty of people dying to have a chance to have kids that cannot and would love to adopt your child, if your a victim of sexual abuse and pregnancy occurs from such an incident then id still give it up mostly because i forced myself to watch an actual abortion (yes you can look up videos. The internet is a crazy thing now a days) and you could see the fetus kicking at the vacuum and it was horrendous to watch but i think every person should watch it in sex ed if they did i think they would think twice before they are okay with cutting up a baby inside of you then sucking it through a vacuum yes that is what they do but i’m not anyone to tell anyone what they can and can not think so if your okay with having an abortion more power to you i could not but some people do and its the decision they choose to do everyone is entitled to do what they want with their own body…….well here it goes i’m adding to the war zone but remember we can all think what we want and this is 100% just my personal view on the subject at hand if you don’t agree its okay with me and i have no issues with it

      For those of you stating the males on this post (or males in general) have no room to talk, you’re idiots. I’m going to assume that you used a man to procreate? That means half of that baby or fetus is his. A man can be just as attached to an unborn child as a woman can, and it’s ridiculous for you ladies to say otherwise. My husband didn’t want children at a young age, we got pregnant at 18. He was just as scared as I when I nearly lost her at 9 weeks and when she tried to come early twice at 30 and 33 weeks. He cried when he saw her first ultrasound which was just a bean shape. He cried when he first heard her heartbeat. He bawled when she was born. And he stayed up for 32 hours straight (He was up that morning at 5, I went into labor at 10 pm, she was born at 6 am) to make sure she was ok because she refused to breathe at first and spent her first 2 days in the nicu. Everytime she kicked, punched, moved, readjusted, spread out, etc. inside of me he felt as overwhelmed as I did. How can you say that the father has no right to decide if the mother should have an abortion or not? Just because he doesn’t carry nor birth the child doesn’t make him any less a parent. He is still there to nurture the baby after she is born. It isn’t his fault that he cannot carry a child. He was not built that way.

      Sammy, abortion *is* like the holocaust. That’s not to say that women who have abortions are heartless murderers. They are simply deluding themselves. Have you ever wondered how so many people could have stood by and gone along with the Nazis while they were mass murdering the Jews? it was because they told themselves they weren’t really people. People do the same exact thing with fetuses. Other people stand by and say, “I wouldn’t have an abortion, but it’s no business of mine what others do”. This is how citizens were able to go along with the Nazis with a clear conscience.

        I totally agree. How long will
        It be before someone stands up and risks everything to speaking up for the voiceless.

      Awesome, I didn’t know God was on tumblr!

      Why can’t people choose what they want to do? What if there are massive health concerns? What if the mother was at danger?
      Yes, you can have your opinion but don’t shove it down peoples throat!

    • jeswalsh .

      Then by your own words it is not your choice either if the woman who is carrying that child decides to abort. Who gave you the power to tell them they can’t? you will not try to compare a person in a coma with someone who hasn’t even come into this world. Don’t try to preach your pro-life propaganda at me because i am not telling people they can or can’t abort what is in their body. You might not like the act of abortion but you sweetheart don’t have the final say in that subject. Yes, the 8 week child you are carrying is a fetus. I am very sorry for your loss but you don’t even know what a fetus is. Please go google before you come over here trying to start arguments with anyone. While you are at it go rest your body and and calm down. It doesn’t do you any good getting bent out of shape on a silly article that has nothing to do with you.
