20th Duggar child is world’s first celebrity miscarriage

WHEN mother of 19 Michelle Duggar lost her 20th child in a miscarriage, she told People:

“After the appointment, we came back home and told the children. We had just been talking about baby names last night and they were getting excited about naming a boy or a girl. It has been a real sad disappointment.  I feel like my heart broke telling my children. They have all been so excited about this baby and looking forward to April coming around and having a new little one in our arms. That was the most difficult. The Lord is the giver of life and he can choose when that life is ready to go on and be with Him.”

The family then named the 5-month-old baby Jubilee Shalom Duggar, took photos of her hands and feet and handed them out at memorial service in an Arkansas church that, as you can see, is visible from space. The photos carried the message: “There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world”.

And in touching moment of humanity and orchestrated grief someone kindly published the photos on the family’s Twitter feed and blog, and then TMZ stuck its logo on them.

Is this the nadir of entertainment in the 21st century?
