In the wake of a petition demanding that the cable television channel TLC cancel “19 Kids and Counting” because of the Duggar Family’s pro-life and Christian views, thousands of pro-life people have signed a counter petition supporting them.

As LifeNews reported, liberal activists are at it again with another attempt to pressure TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting,” the successful cable television show featuring the Duggar family and their pro-life values. The petition has gathered 130,000 signatures, thanks to the liberal media’s propaganda machine.

Thousands of people have signed an online petition that calls on TLC to cancel its popular “19 Kids and Counting” series claiming the Duggar family engages in fear-mongering.  Jim Wissick, of San Jose, California, wrote a letter to TLC, which was posted on the Change.org petition page, that accused the Duggar family of “using their fame to promote discrimination, hate, and fear-mongering.”

Responding to that, almost 18,000 people have signed a pro-life counter-petition asking TLC to keep the show.

ACTION: Sign the Petition to SUPPORT the Duggar Family! Keep 19 Kids and Counting on the air!

Leading pro-life groups have spoken up in support of the Duggar family.

“The Duggar Family from TLC network’s 19 Kids and Counting has shared their strong Christian faith with millions of families across America for years. They are unashamedly pro-life and Christ-centered,” the American Family Association said in a statement. It said the “Duggars are under a malicious attack because of their uncompromising stand on marriage and abstinence.”

Urging pro-life people to sign the petition, the group said: “TLC needs to know you support the Duggars and 19 Kids and Counting! If TLC hears from enough Christians, they will not even consider canceling the show.”

A few months ago, when Jessa Duggar from 19 Kids and Counting, linked the Jewish Holocaust with abortion on an Instragram Post, some responded and said her statement was offensive.

She said: “I walked through the Holocaust Museum again today… very sobering. Millions of innocents denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights—their right to life. One human destroying the life of another deemed ‘less than human.’ Racism, stemming from the evolutionary idea that man came from something less than human; that some people groups are ‘more evolved’ and others ‘less evolved.’ A denying that our Creator—God—made us human from the beginning, all of ONE BLOOD and ONE RACE, descendants of Adam.

The belief that some human beings are ‘not fit to live. So they’re murdered. Slaughtered. Kids with Down syndrome or other disabilities. The sickly. The elderly. The sanctity of human life varies not in sickness or health, poverty or wealth, elderly or pre-born, little or lots of melanin [making you darker or lighter skinned], or any other factor.

May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again,” she wrote. “Not this generation. We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS. #ProLife.”
