Anna Duggar Slams Abortion Advocates With Ultrasound Pics of Her Daughter

Anna and Josh Duggar are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their fourth child, a little girl due early this summer. The 19 Kids and Counting stars not only recently revealed the gender of their unborn baby, they used her ultrasound pictures to advocate for the pro-life movement.

It shouldn't exactly come as a surprise to anyone who follows the Duggar clan that Josh and Anna would take the opportunity to speak out against abortion. They obviously have strong feelings about child rearing, and feel that every single life matters -- even those still living in the womb.

Plus it's their jobs to stand up for the unborn. They relocated to Washington, D.C. after the birth of their third child for Josh to pursue a career in politics. The 27-year-old reality star is the executive director of FRC Action, which is the legislative action arm of the Family Research Council, a pro-life, Christian group.

The parents of Mackynzie, 5, Michael, 4, and Marcus, 1, put a short video on Instagram, pleading for their followers to end the pain suffered by fetuses every day as their lives are ended through abortion.

While sharing a super sweet ultrasound photo of their little girl on Twitter, Anna wrote, "We're thrilled to announce we'll be welcoming a daughter into our family in July ... But thousands of little girls suffer the pain of abortion each day. Help protect these children." She also shared a link to FRC Action page addressing the "Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act."

They want people to contact their representatives and "urge them to vote on the act soon." The bill would ban abortions 20 weeks after fertilization, when moms-to-be would be more than halfway through pregnancy. It of course allows exceptions for special medical or legal circumstances.

Some people may want to slam Josh and Anna for using their unborn child for their political cause, but I think this is just right for them. They obviously feel passionately about the pro-life movement (hello -- they relocated their family in order to work for it), and they're keenly aware of their daughter's development.

They're not using their daughter to get votes -- they're simply trying to connect with people and help them understand the the unborn are still people too.  

Do you think Anna and Josh took advantage of their youngest daughter?
