The Duggars are famous for leading a conservative lifestyle, but fans would rather the family keep quiet when it comes to their political leanings. When the family revealed via Instagram that they were in Washington, DC, fighting for pro-life legislation, fans slammed them in the comments section.

“We are having a great time in DC visiting our Senators and Members of Congress with a ministry called Capitol Connections,” they captioned the photo, as well as additional photos they shared on Facebook.
“We appreciate all those that serve trying to make a difference in our great county and those working hard to protect the unborn!” they wrote.
Fans in the comments were less than pleased with the Duggars’ message. “I don’t know if you’re aware, but there’s a separation of church and state,” one commented.
“Protect the unborn but cut health, food and housing programs...gtfoh,” slammed another.
Others wanted the Duggars to divert their energy elsewhere. “There’s more important things in this world than ppl having abortions though…what about the homeless and the children that are already here??” asked a follower.
Some fans thanked the Duggars for their visit. “Thank you for fighting and caring about those precious baby’s!” said a fan.
A few followers simply used the comments section to throw shade. “Did you call Ashley Madison while you were there?” a fan asked, referring to Josh Duggar’s cheating scandal, which eventually lost the family their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting.
Fans previously slammed the Duggars for taking a missionary trip to Honduras in December. “Please leave the locals alone. They have their own religion,” a fan said at the time.
