Michelle Duggar And Overpopulation

Michelle Duggar And Overpopulation, Did you know that if every single human being in the world stood shoulder-to-shoulder they would fit within the city limits of Jacksonville, Fla.? That’s the truth about overpopulation, according to Michelle Duggar, the baby-popping matriarch of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting. In a Web interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Duggar answered a question about whether her oversize family hurts the environment by disputing the idea of overpopulation entirely.
“First off, the idea of overpopulation is not accurate,” Duggar said before proposing her theory about Jacksonville’s ability to accommodate 7 billion people. In fact, she pointed out, the world is in need of more babies. “We’ve had other countries coming to our doorstep, asking us to please let their people know that they need to have more children,” she said. “They are seeing that their death rates are outnumbering their birth rates and they’re in crisis.”
Given their staunchly anti-abortion beliefs, it perhaps isn’t surprising that the Duggars support Rick Santorum-they did, however, raise a few eyebrows by packing up their things and hitting the road to campaign with him. “He is the true conservative in the race,” Michelle has told The Daily Beast. “Rick Santorum has the family values that we hold dear in our hearts.” The Duggars have even recorded a “19 Reasons and Counting to Vote for Rick Santorum” video, in which they get the entire family involved, even managing to get their second-youngest (who sounds like she’s still very new at talking) to utter, “Rick Santorum for president!”
In February, an Iowa woman was charged with extortion for demanding either $10,000 or the cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting in exchange for not selling photos of an unnamed female Duggar in “apparently intimate situations” to a magazine. The woman, Teresa Hunt, allegedly sent a letter to Discovery Communications explaining her professional relationship with a 56-year-old musician whom she claimed was sleeping with one of the cast members.
The would-be extortion plot was foiled, however, as the “incriminating” photos turned out to be perfectly platonic snapshots of Amy Duggar, a first cousin of the family, and the musician in question, James Garrett. Garrett was actually tickled by the whole “racy photo” situation: “[Amy and I] actually enjoyed a good laugh because we obviously knew they didn’t exist!” he said in an interview with Radar Online.
