It’s no secret that the Michelle Duggar loves having children, and the star of 19 Kids and Counting even revealed recently that she is trying for another one as we speak. So, it really does not surprise us at all that Duggar recently spoke out about abortion and her plans to back a new amendment in Tennessee! Details inside…
Tennessee is one of the easiest states to get an abortion – in fact, the state does not even require underage girls to get a parent’s consent before going through with a termination. But Michelle Duggar is hoping to change that, as she and her husband Jim Bob will be speakers at the Heartbeats for Life event, where they will rally folks to back a new amendment that they hope will be put in place in Tennessee. The proposed amendment would implement a waiting period for abortions, place greater restrictions on late-term abortions, and would require doctors to tell women a certain amount of information to be sure they are fully aware of the circumstances and options surrounding abortion.
“We are so excited to be coming to help kick off the push to get Amendment 1 passed. Since the extremely liberal state Supreme Court ruled in 2000 that the state of Tennessee cannot put any regulations on abortion, Tennessee has become an abortion procedure destination,” Michelle Duggar told Life News. Michelle also revealed that most other states have similar amendments in place, while Tennessee does not. She went on to explain: “Veterinarian clinics for animals in Tennessee have higher standards in health and safety laws than there are for the abortion clinics involving human life. We must join together and end the baby holocaust that is taking place right here in Tennessee.”
