The Abortioneer's Blog sticks up for the Duggars stating that if we are pro choice, we have to respect their choice. Good for them. They also do not go off too much about the photos of the deceased daughter at the funeral....too much. They don't like them mind you, because they may make someone else feel shame over a miscarriage or abortion. Grieve over your miscarriage ....I get. Miscarriage and abortion are not the same thing. Abortion is intentional...miscarriage is not. The post is not mean spirited but there is a concern that the visual image of the daughter might trigger something......maybe that this is a baby...a real person...a human and that is damaging to the "abortion is no big deal" crowd.
The photos are true. It is a human being, a boy or girl...if this causes someone considering abortion to make a different choice......that is good. The truth is always in good taste. Certainly you would not want the woman to make such an important and life altering decision based upon a lie"And I fear how these photos will be used going forward. Anti-choice propaganda is rife with these sorts of images. Some, caring and gentle, like Michelle’s memorial photos, others, bloody and violent. I fear that these photos will go viral and will be used to further a message that I find to be so damaging to women in our society. I fear that someone, somewhere is going to see these triggering images, and feel pain or shame or guilt over her own miscarriage or abortion. I fear the a woman who is looking at her life and considering her choices is going to feel shamed into a choice she doesn’t want to make by these images. I worry about the harm that this image can, and likely will, do."
It is not tacky to have photos or videos of a baby lost to miscarriage.....just like it is not tacky to view the remains of a deceased loved one that is born. Those photos were of the foot and hand...how is this tacky??It was done with taste. If the Duggars wished for these to be private, shame on the person who released them.
One of the more popular posts on this blog is of a child that born in TN at 34 weeks gestation that lived just a short time. The funeral service was truly a celebration of life and beautiful. This picture is on their public Facebook page.
