Jessa Duggar Compares Abortion To Holocaust After Visiting D.C. Museum
Jessa Duggar, the 21-year-old Duggar daughter who stars on 19 Kids and Counting, equated abortion to the Holocaust in a recent Instagram post.
Jessa Duggar Visits Holocaust Museum
Duggar and her fiancé Ben Seewald paid a visit to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., on Sept. 25. After the trip, Duggar took to Instagram to reflect on her experience.
"I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today… very sobering," Duggar wrote. "Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights—their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed 'less than human.' Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are 'more evolved' and others 'less evolved.'"
Duggar Equates Abortion To Holocaust
While at the Holocaust Museum, Duggar connected the genocide that took the lives of roughly six million Jews and 11 million individuals overall to abortion.
"A denying that our Creator—GOD—made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are 'not fit to live.' So they're murdered. Slaughtered," wrote Duggar. "Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly," the engaged TV star wrote in the caption. "The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor."
Duggar went on to quote Proverbs 24:10-12: "'If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works?'"
The engaged reality TV star concluded her statement by hoping that another holocaust does not occur, hashtagging her post #ProLife. "May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again," she wrote. "Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife."
While Jessa might be the most recent member of the Duggar family to emerge from the Holocaust Museum connecting the atrocities on display therein with abortion, she is not the first. Last year, Jessa's mother Michelle Duggar conveyed a similar takeaway on her blog. "A couple of weeks after we went to the Holocaust Museum It dawned on us that there is a holocaust taking place right here in America!," wrote the Duggar matriarch. "More than 56 million lives have been destroyed in our country! That is over 4,000 babies being killed and 4,000 women being wounded each day!"
Jessa Duggar's husband-to-be is also ardently pro-life. The 19-year-old Christian frequently posts about the cause on his Facebook page.
