Leftists use Jessa Duggar's miscarriage to push pro-abortion propaganda until she drops them with the facts
Since Roe vs. Wade was overturned, there has unsurprisingly been a lot of fear-mongering and misinformation from the left. One of the most common pro-abortion propaganda claims is that a miscarriage is actually an abortion. Which is of course not true at all, and downright insulting to women who have tragically suffered miscarriages.
One such woman is former reality TV star Jessa Duggar. Duggar told the story of her miscarriage on her YouTube channel last week. Leftist media quickly picked up the story and claimed she had an abortion, trying to twist the story into an ad for abortion "rights".
Writer and activist Josie Duffy Rice tweeted, "To be clear this is a member of one of the most famous vocally anti-abortion families……admitting she got an abortion……"

Jezebel's headline read, "Jessa Duggar Seewald Had an Abortion, Even If She Won't Say the Word". And Parade reads, "Jessa Duggar Details Life-Saving Abortion in Emotional Video".

These attacks against a mourning mother are unbelievably disgusting. Luckily, Jessa didn't shy away from the fight. She hit back on her Instagram story, writing, "Women have D&Cs for many reasons, not all of which involve killing a live 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. 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."
She concluded, "There is a world of difference between a mortician and a murderer. Even a child understands the difference between the two."

It is shocking how many leftists equate abortion and miscarriage simply because the same procedure is used to remove the child from the woman's uterus. This narrative completely divorces the intent of the procedure from the outcome. In abortion, the intent is to kill the child. Treatment for a miscarriage prevents a life-threatening infection and removes an already deceased child. And no pro-life laws prevent women from receiving treatment for a miscarriage. That would be medical malpractice.
Good for Jessa for speaking out. Hopefully, this will help more people see through the disgusting pro-abortion propaganda.
