Duggar Mom Expresses Outrage at Susan G. Komen

Michelle Duggar upset Susan G. Komen Foundation continues to support Planned Parenthood.


It's no secret Michelle Duggar isn't keen on birth control, but the TLC star and mother of 19 said Friday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that she's also not happy with Susan G. Komen Foundation, which recently back peddled on their decision to pull funds from family planning agency Planned Parenthood.

Duggar argued that it's "ludicrous" for Susan G. Komen to stand by Planned Parenthood, when Duggar claims they are a leading performer of abortions in the country.

"I feel like the Susan Komen Foundation took back what they said," Duggar argued.

Planned Parenthood says their organization does not pay for abortions with federal funds, and has said they use money from Susan G. Komen to provide cancer-preventing screenings to women in need.

Duggar shook her head adamantly though as the panel of women discussed Planned Parenthood's abortion practices. She gasped when conservative commentator S.E. Cupp said Planned Parenthood performed almost 1,000 abortions a day.

"This appalls me. I can barely sit still for this," she said. "It breaks my heart."

Duggar expressed hope, however, that so many young people had gathered at CPAC, and said she was looking to them to preserve the family values of the conservative party. "In our country, strong families [are] where it is at," she said. "We strengthen our families with lower taxes and less government."
