Duggar Family Putting Youngest Child at Risk With Three-Week TLC Shoot?

by at . Comments

TLC continually changes the name of its show 19 Kids and Counting to reflect the increasing number of Duggar offspring. Jim Bob and Michelle? Fertile.

But it reportedly nearly declined by one.

The youngest child of the 21-member Arkansas family has reportedly suffered some serious medical problems while shooting overseas in Israel.

Little Josie-Brooklyn Duggar was born prematurely and is prone to illness, but sources say the demands of their TLC schedule put her more at risk:

The Duggars

“Josie has had serious breathing issues since her premature birth. While the Duggars are a loving family who adore their children, they are defi­nitely risking little Josie’s life by traveling all over the world," says an insider.

"It seems like they are putting the show before their child’s health. Jim Bob and Michelle need to put their chil­dren before media attention and money.”

Definitely out of character for the evangelical Christian family, who - no matter what you think of their lifestyle - live debt free and relatively simply.

Although, as Jon Gosselin can attest, money and fame change people.

Should Jim Bob and Michelle try for baby Duggar #20?

Thats funny cuz before i read this here i read it somewhere else and of course without the spin. They said the child merly had a cold and was taken to the doctors for it. I dnt see these parents putting a child at risk esp for fame or money. No matter what ppl think these parents are very simple and actually look like they have a great family who have made very productive and polite children.
