Jessa Duggar, nee Jessa Seewald, is the most recent of the 19 Kids and Counting clan to tie the knot. As a new wife, Jessa took to the streets in Little Rock, Arkansas on Sunday to join the March for Life. Her family has long been active in pro-life demonstrations.
A large crowd gathered at the state capitol as part of the peaceful protest.
Jessa shared word of her intentions via Instagram.
“Headed to Little Rock right now for the annual March for Life! Join us at our state Capitol at 2pm, and together let us take a stand for the life of the unborn,” she captioned the following post.
Jessa Duggar shared a sign made by a fellow March for Life participant.
Jessa also shared a film clip she and her siblings created to promote the March for Life. She posted this on Instagram as well, captioning it, “Watch this short clip my siblings put together to commemorate the 2015 Arkansas March for Life! (Google “Duggar Studios” or find the direct link on my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/JessaSeewald) Join with us by using the hashtag #IStandForLife!”
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were present at the rally, too, in addition to several of the other Duggar siblings.
Jessa Duggar first went public on her pro-life stance a little over a year ago, following a trip to the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
Contemplating on the “millions of innocents” who were “denied the most basic and fundamental of all rights—their right to life,” Jessa wrote at that time, “May we never sit idly by and allow such an atrocity to happen again. Not this generation.
“We must be a voice for those who cannot speak up for themselves. Because EVERY LIFE IS PRECIOUS,” she wrote in conclusion.
Jill Duggar, Jessa’s older sister, is pregnant with her first child, and hopes for a large family. Jessa Duggar has said that she and hubby Ben Seewald want a large family, too.
