The Duggar family of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting have long been outspoken pro-life advocates, with dad Jim Bob publicly claiming that "many women are having a lifetime of regret" after having the procedure, and mom Michelle likening the practice to "baby holocaust." But now, their eldest daughters JanaJillJinger and Jessa are speaking out for the first time about their own beliefs -- and they're just as stringent.

The girls -- who have midwife training -- address women who experience unplanned pregnancies in their new book, Growing Up Duggar. "Don't allow anyone to talk you into taking the life of your child," they write. "Your baby is not a blob of tissue! … It's a baby from the time it is conceived."

"Even though this is happening out of God's designed order, He loves you both and will forgive you," they insist. "Abortion might seem like a quick fix to a big problem, but we personally know several women who have done this, and they have said they regret ending the life of their baby; it haunts them every day. You cannot get un-pregnant. If you are pregnant, take responsibility and take care of yourself and your baby and God will take care of you."

As has reported, this is not the only surprising stand the girls take in their new tome. Admitting that life isn't perfect when the TLC cameras aren't rolling, they confess to suffering body image issues and sexual temptation in the wide-ranging book.
