Duggar Family Shows Photos of Dead Fetus at Memorial

This is just so wrong. The Duggar family of TLC’s “19 Kids & Counting” showed pictures of Michelle Duggar’s miscarried baby during a memorial in Arkansas. She was trying for baby number 20.

TMZ has the disturbing pictures showing the baby corpse’s feet and hands. The photos were distributed to guests with messages like: “There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world.” How morbid. The baby’s name would have been Jubilee Shalom Duggar.

Look: (WARNING: GRAPHIC)

They showed them then. You are showing them now. What is the difference? It just proves that we are made in the image of God and that life begins at conception!

How someone wants to celebrate life and mourn death is up to each and every one of us.
I'm disappointed this Ricky.org for a blatant miss-lead headline.
And shame on everyone that says "it's the Duggars". When did life become all about hate. People with hate usually have something they dislike about themselves and it shows with their words.

i lost twins at 6 months along and we took pictures of them for our memory book. We held them looked at their fingers and toes and cried. They were my daughters and now they are GODS angels! i go back and am amazed at how small and delicate they were. These photos were tastefully done as were the Duggers. Get over it. everyone deals with their grief in different ways. Who are we to judge! if you have ever been pregnant you know that the baby is part of your life from the very beginning, just because she was not full term does not mean that she was less of a child to them. Really....

My sincerest condolences to the Duggars. The Lord knows the reason why this baby did not survive in this world. I, myself ,truly enjoy the tv show and admire the Duggar family. They have some of the best morals I've seen in America. It proves famlies do not have to go "worldly" to survive and be happy.

If you have never had a miscarriage, you might think that the Memorial Service and the Pictures that were leaked to the Internet are Gross or tacky. You have never known the empty,heart wrenching sorrow of a life unfulfilled, and the need to reconcile and acknowledge your grief in a concrete way. I felt that the Duggars did so with a loving , considerate Memorial. Before you attack and pillar them for their decision, remember that they did not post these Pictures, they were posted to Facebook by a guest at the Memorial.

What's the big deal? There are 'open caskets' at funerals all the time, for people of every age. This is the same thing as having an open casket at great-aunt Ethel's funeral. They're remembering a life lost... Would I make the same lifestyle choice they have, to have so many kids? Heck no!! But they're not on public assistance, they take no taxpayer monies to support their huge brood. It's none of my business how many kids they have or how they choose to have a funeral/memorial service for a deceased family member.

Exactly...ive had 1 stillborn at 18wks and 1 lived 2 hrs at 20wks gestation...so people shouldnt pass judgement until they have been in those shoes. that is the only thing they will have to remember her by. if its so disturbing why are people looking? PEOPLE LIKE DISTURBING!!! Some people just have to bitch about something. GET OVER IT PEOPLE, ITS JUST A BABY!! She isnt hurting anyone of you with pics. Its a grieving process...and hopefully all you who complain about it wont ever have to be in THE DUGGARS position.

There is a limit on childern you can deduct, and I think it is 2 or 3. If you are thinking the are getting 19 time $2000 in deductions you are off the mark/

But they do, in essence, take tax payer money...right? The way our tax code works is that those with dependent children get a $2000 deduction for EACH dependent child per year (a $2000.00 less per dependent child that you have to pay the gov't each year--or get refunded this amount--on taxes.) So we are all paying to support their selfish, misguided decisions to continually duplicate themselves. Yeah...pretty simple: they are getting a tax refund of the American taxpayer's hard earned income to support their selfish decisions. Is this clearer?
