Ask Jessa Duggar: The Holocaust is Just Like Abortion

The Duggar clan was in Washington DC over the weekend for a stop at the Values Voters Summit. Apparently the group also made a stop at the United States Holocaust Museum, because 21-year-old Jessa, the homeschooled her whole life daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle, took to Instagram to express her unique take on the Holocaust and its cause.

Jessa was moved by the exhibits revealing the atrocities endured by millions of Jews and others who found themselves on the wrong side of the Nazi regime.

“I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today,” she wrote in post on Instagram, “very sobering. 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.”

As it turns out, she is not only using suspiciously pro-life talk to discuss the Holocaust she is actually compared the Shoah to abortion.

“So they’re murdered,” she wrote somehow seeming to miss the Jews, the Romani and the gays who died in her list of ‘innocents’ “Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born.

Leaving no doubt that her real concern is abortion in America today, she adds this mini-sermon to her generation:

“May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife”

Of course, Jessa cannot be completely blamed for her remarks. She is only repeating what her parents have taught her.

“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! More than 56 million lives have been destroyed in our country! That is over 4000 babies being killed and 4000 women being wounded each day,” the Duggars  wrote last year after their own trip to the the memorial museum.

    She is right about the 4000 babies a day. Less right about 4000 women being wounded. I’m guessing the actual number is a far cry south of there. Most of them are monsters anyway.

  • The Bible describes a baby as one who has drawn its first breath. Who are you to say otherwise?

    Abortion is legal. Unless something comes up that proves, beyond a shadow of doubt, that a fetus is able to live on its own outside the Mother’s body, then it does not have any rights.

    No matter how strongly you feel about it.

    She forgot about the Palestinians or all the natives that her religion killed !!!!!!
