Jessa Duggar‘s trip to Washington, DC with her fiance, Ben Seewald, has officially turned into a nightmare.
Jessa’s been documenting the trip on social media (the pic above is of the lovebirds at the Capitol building), but one Instagram post in particular has been sparking a lot of attention—and not the good kind.
After a visit to the city’s Holocaust museum, Jessa posted and then deleted a rant about how valuable life is, etc. Here it is, word for word, below:
“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,” Duggar wrote on Instagram with a photo of a concentration camp. “One human destroying the life of another deemed ‘less than human.’ Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are ‘more evolved’ and others ‘less evolved.’ A denying that our Creator — GOD — made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam. The belief that some human beings are ‘not fit to live.’ So they’re murdered. Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor.
Then, quoting the Bible, Jessa wrote:
“If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain; If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not He that pondereth the heart consider it? and He that keepeth thy soul, doth not He know it? and shall not He render to every man according to his works?” (Proverbs 24:10-12) 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”
So yes, Jessa Duggar did just compare the Holocaust to abortion, as evidenced by her little #ProLife hashtag at the end. People are furious, rightfully so, but hey, this isn’t as bad as that one time Justin Bieber visited the Holocaust museum and later tweeted that Anne Frank would’ve been a Belieber…right?
