19 kids and counting news: Jessa participates in march for life, Jill and Derick have an intimate date night

While fans of "19 Kids and Counting", TLC's hit reality show, wait keenly for the upcoming season airing in February, 2015, the Duggars are keeping busy.

The Christian Post reported that 22-year-old Jessa Duggar and the rest of her family, including Ben Seewald, parents Jim Bob and Michelle and 10 siblings, participated in a pro-life march. On Sunday, Jan. 18, 2015, the Duggar family lent support for a pro-life stance by participating in March For Life, a peaceful demonstration against the legalization of abortion.


Jessa took to Instagram to show her support by uploading a picture of the family smiling with sunshine gently hitting their faces. The caption for the photograph reads, "Headed to Little Rock right now. Join us at our state Capitol at 2pm, and together let us take a stand for the life of the unborn".

The 36th March for Life coincided with the Roe vs. Wade trial decision that led to the legalization of abortion. It should come as no surprise to fans of the show that the Duggar family is against abortion as they have never been shy about their conservative Christian values. In fact, Jessa, in September visited a Holocaust museum and compared abortion to the Holocaust, triggering a backlash from pro-choicers.

Mstars News reported that the Duggars posted a video on Youtube asking for support from fans. Jim Bob, his wife Michelle and daughter Jessa featured in the video with each declaring "I stand for life".

Meanwhile, Jill and Derick chose to spend the Sunday night together with an intimate dinner. They ate Chinese food, with Jill sporting her baby bump. She is about 30 weeks pregnant.

The show will enter its ninth season in February highlighting Jessa and Ben's nuptials along with Jill's pregnancy, according to Inquisitr. Admirers of the show have a lot to look forward to and can expect ample drama from the next series.
