Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar went on the Today show this morning to announce that they are pregnant with their 19th child. Yeah! They believe that each child is a blessing from God and will let Him decide how many children they will ultimately have. Ok, so I agree that each child is a blessing from God, but do they ALL have to be raised by the Duggars? God also blessed them with a brain, why don't they use it more productively?
And furthermore, hasn't this poor woman's uterus been through enough? She claims that she didn't know about this latest pregnancy at first. She was exercising and following Weight Watchers to lose weight from the 18th child and wondered why she couldn't seem to lose any weight. Wait a minute - how in the HELL does this woman have time to diet and exercise??? I don't have time to diet and exercise!!!!! Oh yeah, because each of her older children are assigned a baby to take care of. This frees up Michelle to spend her time brainwashing, I mean teaching, her daughters that their future should consist of nothing but cooking, cleaning and procreating.
Don't get me wrong, as long as these people aren't infringing on my rights and using my taxpaying dollars for their own benefit, then they can do whatever they want. But, how much bad press and negativity did Octomom have to endure while the Duggars always get the royal treatment? Just because the Duggars are married and promote Christianity does not mean what they are doing is ok. These children did not choose to be reality tv stars, nor did they choose to spend their childhood raising their younger siblings. Where should the line be drawn?
Perhaps I'm just a bitter, cynical, cobwebbed womb woman, who knows? What do you think?
P.S. The above gawd-awful picture was taken several years before their reality tv show came about. They have since modernized their look. Perhaps so the American television viewers can better relate?
