Michelle Duggar Denies Adverse Impact on Earth, Says Entire Population Could Live in Jacksonville

by at . Comments

To anyone accusing her of being wasteful or irresponsible on a planet already short on resources, Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting offers a strong rebuke.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Michelle was asked how one can justify having such a large family in an already overpopulated world.

Duggar said overpopulation is basically a myth. Why? Get ready for this ...

Jim Bob, Michelle Duggar, Family

"The idea of overpopulation is not accurate because, really, the whole world population, standing shoulder to shoulder, could fit in the city limits of Jacksonville."

"So if you realize that aspect, we're not anywhere near being overpopulated."

Who knew Jacksonville was that big? Take that, science. Step off.

Michelle Duggar did, with all due respect, go on to discuss how buying used cars, old clothing and living resourcefully can reduce a family's environmental impact.

They also have no debts, reducing their financial burden on others.

Nevertheless, a family of 21? Probably more of strain on the environment than one half its size. Or a quarter of its size. Carbon footprints do exist, like it or not.

According to Duggar - who does specialize in a terrific Duggars Tater Tot Casserole recipe -  other countries have death rates that eclipse birth rates (it's actually quite rare), so there can never be too many babies. Huh?

Anyway, we're done. Your turn. Is it okay to have 19 kids?


Look, I live in Jacksonvile, and it's pretty big. So it's offensive to hear her whole family can live here. Saying it's so small. Jeez. And please, don't bring your family down here. I feel bad for those kids. Now and days parents can't even focus to at least three of their kids! Their everywhere! Its like their circus acts! And Jacksonville is one of the biggest citys in the U.S. Its not at the top though. So stfu.


The reason they are having these children is for the media attention. That is terrible. They may provide for their physical needs, but they can no way have enough time to provide for their emotional needs. They are a joke.


jimbob has kept them sheltered as fuck! Enough to believe the whole world fits in jacksonville


I say someone should suffocate every damn one of them. The only good thing is there not having retarded kids


@Stephanie: No, we just want them to use a rubber. You see a prophylactic will have the effect of preventing conception so there will be no need to "kill any babies like they do in China" as you postulate. Get it?


Jim-Bob? His name is Jim-Bob?! Oh, that's wonderful....


So... if there are people thinking that they shouldn't have had these many kids because they are overpopulating earth... They probably like the way the Chinese deal on these situations... only one child per couple... the next kids... WTF.. just kill them... Be glad we're all living in a free country... if they wanna have 30 kids... it's their problem......




@Hea: You ever hear of hyperbole? Slow much? Having said that, anyone who thinks this woman KNOWS her children with 18 waking hours and 19 children is delusional. Whats worse is that she thinks religious repression equates to well balanced, its a trope that always self-destructs.


Michelle you and your husband just have a lots of blessing from our lord.. you're our lord pets to give you all these blessing, you are a lucky woman on earth.....bless your heart for keeping all your kids......
