Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are famous for having 19 kids in their large family.
And for their strong Christian upbringing and traditional values, they are also known. Although their children, who now have their own families, usually seem to be less strict than Michelle and Jim Bob, it is clear that they are still following in the footsteps of the Duggar family.
And no exception is Jessa Duggar.
A very strongly worded Twitter post about abortion rights was written by Jessa Duggar’s husband, Ben Seewald. Here’s what his supporters were meant to say.
Ben Seewald, Jessa Duggar’s husband, wrote about legalizing abortion in Argentina.
1/5 For Argentina, which just legalized abortion, my heart is heavy. We mourn for the thousands of innocent children who are going to be slaughtered.
Each and every one of these Argentine babies bears God’s image and is precious in His eyes.-Ben Seewald (@BenSeewald) December 30, 2020Typically, Jessa and Ben share family-oriented material on social media. Jessa is regularly sharing pictures and videos of what her three children are up to on YouTube and Instagram.
And Ben shares a lot of pictures of himself, Jessa, and what life in their home in Arkansas is like.
Ben shared some political thoughts on Twitter on December 30, 2020. He posted multiple tweets about the decision of Argentina to legalize abortion – and he’s definitely not pleased about it.
For Argentina, which has just legalized abortion, my heart is heavy,” he began. “We weep for the thousands of innocent children who are about to be slaughtered.

Fans are extremely unhappy with the post from Ben’s
With his fans, Ben’s strongly worded post didn’t go down well. His Twitter had previously been filled with adorable images of his son Spurgeon and daughter Ivy.
And several fans find his abortion law posts utterly needless.
Reddit opponents of the Duggar family still don’t understand what Ben thought of his posting.
One Reddit fan wrote, “Yeah, so much for people thinking Ben is progressive or awake in any way,”
“[Ben and Jessa] have never been woke, they haven’t changed a bit,” added another. “They’ve just gotten better at hiding their vile beliefs and pretending to fit in with mainstream society.”
“… The…” Ben, people who force their wives to give birth at home, even though she’s almost dead every time, shouldn’t be talking,” another added.”
For their pro-life stand, the Duggars are renowned
A follower told Jill Duggar that birth control caused Michelle Duggar’s mother to miscarry.
Although Ben’s posting disappoints many fans and followers, his stance shouldn’t be too much of a surprise.
Jim Bob and Michelle are both against birth control in general, as Michelle claimed that she claims that birth control pills are the reason she had a miscarriage after Josh Duggar was born. The Duggars have made it clear that they are solely against abortion.
In 2015, Jessa expressed her support for the pro-life cause personally, too.
“She posted a picture on Instagram showing her at the Arkansas March for Life, the Washington Post reports. “Just going to Little Rock for the annual March for Life! Join us at 2 p.m. at our State Capitol, and let’s fight for the lives of the unborn together,’ she wrote.
We don’t expect him to delete it or rethink the comment, despite Ben’s controversial post and the criticism it got because of it.
