Social Power Rankings: How Do You Feel About the Duggars’ 20th Pregnancy?
Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar
Last night marked the season finale of TLC's 19 Kids And Counting, but that's not why the show has spontaneously catapulted to No. 1 in our Social Power Rankings. The Duggar family is pregnant again... for the 20th time! And some of you are not at all happy about it.
"Don't people have a clue when to stop? Twenty kids is ridiculous. Some of us were only blessed with one." @Medicmimkb tweeted. "And furthermore, beyond financial demands, a woman's uterus will only work so many times. Did they not learn last time w/ Josie?" (Michelle Duggar, 45, suffered complications during her most recent pregnancy, forcing the baby to be born three and a half months premature.) Brittney Ann Riffle took to Facebook to voice her opinion about the news. "I don't understand how anyone can say they 'respect' this. They've turned their family into a brand... ridiculous."
Others defended the TLC clan. "I honestly don't think they are doing this for attention," said TVGuide.com user roxy21698. They're not the only family with that many kids — just the only ones on TV." On Facebook, Lindsay Phillip Shaw wrote, "I am overjoyed for their family! I would not want that many, but it works for them. Their kids are very intelligent, well-rounded and steadfast in their faith. May God continue to bless them!"
We think they might just be the most fertile couple in America. But what do you think — should the Duggars keep pumpin' out nuggets?
