Recently, the Duggar's had a funeral and memorial service for Jubilee. At the memorial service they displayed pictures that were taken of Jubilee by the group Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep is a group that provides photographers to document stillborns or the short lives of babies that die in the hospital shortly after birth.
Here is a picture from the Duggar's website of Jubilee's little hand holding Michelle's finger.
I think this situation highlights how amazingly different people value human life. This baby was 19 weeks old, was given a name, was loved by her family, and was given a funeral. At places like Leroy Carhart's abortion facility at Germantown Reproductive Health Services, babies well past 24 weeks are brought in by their mothers, given a lethal injection, and thrown in the trash as medical waste. These lives are not medical waste, they are children that should be given a chance at life!
To further illustrate this point, after reading an article published on LifeNews.com about the Duggars and Jubilee, I came across the website TMZ that published the photos from Jubilee's memorial service. Below is a picture from the TMZ website:
Warning, the below image is disturbing.
The image is not disturbing because of the picture of Jubilee's tiny feet. It is disturbing because of the filth published next to it in the "most recent" advertisement on the TMZ website. There is something drastically wrong with a society that finds pictures of a 19 week babies feet being lovingly held by their grieving mother "disturbing." When on the other hand, pictures of women being degraded and portrayed as nothing more than a piece of meat to be paraded around, is normal and accepted.
We need to continue to pray for our society. We need to pray that every life will be cherished and that our society will treat women with the respect they deserve.
