The pro-life community has come together to support the Duggar family in response to efforts by liberals to get TLC to cancel their show, “19 Kids and Counting.”

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.

In response, 30,000 people have signed a petition urging TLC to keep the show and supporting the Duggar family’s pro-life values.

That so many people have signed the petition without any media support or financial backing shows how strongly the pro-life movement appreciates the Duggars, while the liberals who are pushing TLC to cancel “19 Kids and Counting” admit that they needed to the media’s help to gather their signatures.

“We reached our goal of 100,000 so quickly once the media picked up the story,” liberal petition organizer Jim Wissick wrote in an update. According to Newsbusters, Wissick is now aiming for 500,000 petition signatures:

Please keep sharing the link to your FB friends, Twitter, Google+ and other social media outlets! Please also write letter to the editor of your local and non-local papers telling them why you think the Duggar’s bully pulpit needs to be taken from them.

The Duggar family’s central theme is their pro-life, Christian values and Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children have been outspoken over the years in defending human life from abortion and promoting abstinence education.

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

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

“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.”
