The Duggars claim to practice Christian love in their everyday life. But that kindness apparently doesn't extend to unwed mothers— even if the woman is a family member!
Insiders exclusively tell RadarOnline.com that daughter Jill Duggar, a practicing midwife, wanted to help sister-in-law Anna Duggar's younger sister Susanna Keller give birth to her first child two years ago— but Jim Bob and Michelle wouldn't allow it.
"Jill was very excited to assist Susanna through the birth," a source reveals to Radar of the newly married 23-year-old, now pregnant with her first child. "Michelle and Jim Bob, however, wouldn't let her participate. They thought Jill shouldn't be exposed to an unmarried mother in that condition."
As Radar previously reported, the conservative Christian family iced previously close friend Susanna out of the family when she decided to ditch tradition and live like a normal teenager. When she became pregnant with daughter Noelle out of wedlock in 2012, sources say the family banned the 22-year-old from their TLC reality show, 19 Kids And Counting, and refused to say her name on air.
When Susanna ran into the family at an event in Texas last year, they were cordial, but became appalled when the young mom allowed her daughter now nearly 2, to dance. (The family considers dancing to be "too sensual.")
The family has come under fire recently for blocking LGBT fans from their Facebook page and comparing abortion to the Holocaust.
