Michelle Duggar of TLC’s Duggar Family in The Hollywood Gossip
The conservative Christian star of the hit TLC show 19 Kids and Counting told a pro-life crowd in Austin that she is against abortion, to put it mildly.
Flanked by son Josh Duggar of the Family Research Council, she likened abortion to Hitler’s attempted eradication of the Jews in World War II.
She said that elected officials who are pro-choice need to be replaced.
“If those who are voted into office do not support life, then they need to be replaced by those who do,” she said, the San Antonio Express reported.
The Duggars are no strangers to politics. In the 2012 election, they campaigned for Rick Santorum due to his “pro-life and pro-family stance.”

Quoted because of the increasing tendency of QF to throw around references to Hitler and the Nazis any time they encounter something that runs opposite their beliefs, not because the subject is abortion. Let’s keep any thoughts on abortion posted in the comments civil and respectful please.
