Duggars at Arkansas March for Life

On Sunday, the Duggars attended the 35th annual Arkansas March for Life in Little Rock. Jim Bob and several of the kids, along with Josh and Anna and their children, joined thousands of fellow Arkansas residents at the Capitol Mall to urge lawmakers to support pro-life legislation.

As a pro-choicer, I get disgusted reading that some people still believe that a woman has no right to do what she wants with her body. Thank God Obama won, and will be serving a second term!

I've always wondered, Pro-Choicer, why is it that the women get a choice about they want to do with their body, but the babies don't get a choice about what happens to them.

1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

This is what God said concerning our body. If our body belongs to God, you think he doesnt care what we do with it? Certainly He does care. God passed judgment on generations who killed babies. What about when King Herod started killing babies when he was trying to kill our Saviour as a baby. God will NOT tolerate the murder of the innocent!!!!

We went to the march here in Atlanta, GA. It was encouraging to see so many people come, even after 40 years, to speak out for the children who have no voice. I am glad to see the Duggars made it to the march in Arkansas!

A woman may have a right to choose what is done to her body but the unborn child in at woman's womb has a right also that cannot be outspoken by its self so we he to take a stand for it and proclaim murder as murder. A human has a right weather it be unborn or not.

babies get rights when they are outside their mom's womb. when they are inside, they are fetuses and fetuses do not have rights.

Good for you Josh and Anna.. is that some of the Bates in the picture?

This is just for you to think about...

If the baby in side it's mother is growing then it must be alive, right??

If it was human parents then it must be human right?

Living humans like you and I are important aren't we?

Pro life J

Lilly and Ellie-

praise the Lord!
maybe someday in America abortion will be ended once and for all. Meanwhile we must pray for our leaders and continue to support the pro-life movement.

I am pro-life. So, why is that there are so many people who choose to have sex and then are surprised to be pregnant with a decision to make? If you are old enough to have think having sex is a great idea; then you better be ready for the responsibility of a child from God.

Some of those kids look like bates! I'm confused!

Good for them, opposing abortions! I would remind those who say, "It's the law... it's not a big deal, women should be able to choose..." Remember, slavery was once legal in this country. Those enslaved human beings were also stripped of their rights, much like the unborn babies today. I think we can all now agree that slavery is wrong, and I pray that soon, people will look at abortion as we now look at slavery.

Thank you! Finally, someone said it!

I understand everyone's concern for the unborn, but what about the children who are already born? If you so desperately want abortion gone completely, how about more of you take in the babies and children who are already here that have no home, no one who loves them, and who live in horrible conditions. I'm a social worker and I see the horrors of foster care and the hopelessness of those who are in the system. Before we can get rid of abortion that needs to be fixed and we need more families to actually take in the children who need homes. You may consider them to be God's gifts but to many mothers it is a terrifying reality that they may not be able to feed, house, and clothe their baby. Many married women choose abortion because they and their spouse have hit hard times, cannot afford to take care of the children they already have, etc. I'm not saying abortion is great or even condoning it, I'm just saying there are many other issues that need to be addresses before we can tackle abortion.

Dear Anonymous, a woman CAN do whatever she wants to do with her body. When a woman is pregnant, however, there are TWO bodies to consider.

No human being has the right to kill an innocent human being.

Lisam,
The word Fetus is merely terminology determined by mankind. God, our Creator, says in the Bible that He hates those who shed innocent blood. How much more helpless can an unborn Baby be while it's developing in the womb? The human race are the only ones who willingly abort their own. Shedding innocent blood is murder, which the Bible states no murders will have a place in Heaven.
You better stop and think about that. You didn't Create it, so therefore you have no right to take it either.
God Bless and don't mess with Gods plan

Who gives You the right to make that decision? Just because an unborn baby can not speak, does that mean he/she should be denied the right to life? What about people born deaf, disabled, or mentally impaired? Does that mean that we are all stripped of our rights because we can't defend ourselves?

Rebecca S said...

Be reminded people that no one has the right to use another person's body against their will. Not even a fetus. So if someone doesn't consent to their body being used during pregnancy, they have all the right to have an abortion. Their body is theirs. I cannot use my mother's body as a life-line if she doesn't support it. Debate the morality of that all you want, but none of you would argue that to be made legal.

People have their own opinions about being pro-choice or pro-life. Abortion is never black or white, there are grey areas too. Do pro -lifer's really think it would be okay for a say for instance, 13 yr old girl to go a whole pregnancy- if she was molested, or raped? To go a whole full 9 months with say her fathers baby, give birth, and then maybe give it up for adoption? What would that do to a 13 year old mind? Sometimes the world is an ugly place, is it better that a baby is born unwanted? The Duggars are a beautiful, loving family, no doubt. I admire their love for eachother, and even though I am not religious myself, I respect their personal thing with God. I have to wonder thoough, what would the world be like, if every single family had 10-20 children?
