Jessa Duggar Sacrifices Public Image to Speak for the Unborn

In a culture where traditional values are labeled "extreme" and conservatives are pigeon-holed as out of touch, Jessa Duggar (soon to be Seewald and part of the hit reality TV show "19 Kids and Counting") knew she was sacrificing public opinion when she wrote a long and heartfelt message about abortion on her Instagram account.

After visiting the National Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C., Jessa posted a picture of Holocaust prisoners and wrote:

“I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today… 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.’ The belief that some human beings are ‘not fit to live.' So they’re murdered. 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.”

Jessa's message received some 24,000 likes, but also some incredibly public and searing criticism. Cosmo's Senior Political Writer Jill Filipovic wrote an entire piece about Jessa and her family, calling them "deranged" and "tone-deaf" and condemning their pro-life beliefs as "radical."

The irony is that 50 years ago, before Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion views were considered radical and deranged. Now the prevailing voice heard in the media is one that scares many Pro-life believers into silence.

But not Jessa. She took a stand to speak for the unborn lost through abortion (now reaching 57 million) in order to hopefully spare lives in the future.

What do you think of the media's criticism for Jessa and others who speak for the unborn? Do you think it is fair and helpful? Or do you support Jessa's boldness?
