On the list entitled ‘All The Reasons Why the Abortion Lobby Stinks,’ a real hard hitter is the fact that many women are lied to in different ways by the abortion industry — including women like celebrity Jessa Duggar who has been insensitively told that her recent miscarriage was basically the same thing as a direct abortion. Here’s what happened and why her story is so different:
Jessa Duggar Seewald, a former star on the ‘19 Kids and Counting’ show on TLC, posted a heartbreaking video recently on YouTube, explaining that she had miscarried, and as part of her miscarriage care, had undergone a dilation and curettage procedure (otherwise known as a D&C) to remove the dead baby from her uterus. This procedure is sometimes used in miscarriage care to prevent infections in mothers, and its removal of a naturally dead baby is worlds different from a direct abortion which first intentionally kills the baby before removing it.
The abortion lobby, however, likes to blur those clear lines.
People Magazine recently published an article, entitled “Jessa Duggar Says She Had a D&C, How Does That Differ from Other Abortion Procedures?”, which even from the title phrase ‘other abortion procedures’ seems purposely misleading. The author, Vanessa Etienne, writes the much same within in the text of the article. After going through the different kinds of abortion, which included Dilation and Evacuation (D&E), and Chemical Abortion Pills, she concludes, “The main difference between the types of abortions is timing of the procedures.”
