Jessa Duggar Seewald’s Post-Miscarriage D&C Misconstrued as Abortion

Other people point out that a D&C has numerous medical uses. Megan Basham tweets: “This is monstrous. Jessa Duggar suffered a miscarriage recently & received a D&C afterward (common medical care) to clear womb & protect her from infection. Abortion activists are capitalizing on her suffering by claiming she had an abortion. There is no depth they won’t sink to.”

On Feb. 26, Seewald adds this comment on her video: “Women have D&C’s for many reasons, not all of which involve killing a living human being. The ultrasound revealed that I had a missed miscarriage. My baby’s heart had stopped beating 3 weeks before I had a D&C. (Btw, this was not my first D&C— it was my second. My first was 2 weeks postpartum Ivy’s birth for retained placenta.)

“Each person is created ‘in the image of God’ (Gen 1:27), and to purposefully destroy a baby in the womb is an affront to the God who created that life. There’s a world of difference between someone dying and someone being killed. To equate one to the other—and to a mother grieving the loss of her baby no less—is severely distasteful. There is a world of difference between a mortician and a murderer. Even a child understands the difference between the two.”
