WASHINGTON, D.C., January 27, 2015 ( — Josh and Anna Duggar of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting” spoke with LifeSiteNews Editor-in-Chief John-Henry Westen at the DC March for Life last week, urging pro-life advocates to “stay strong” in the battle.

“Fear breeds fear, but when we are courageous, courage will, indeed, breed more courage,” said Josh, executive director of Family Research Council Action. “I think standing up for what you believe is so important, and the most basic of all gifts that God has given to each of us is that which is most valuable and precious, and that is life.”

Josh said that the country's founders knew this when they wrote the Constitution, life being the very first thing they mention.

“We have to stand together to make sure we're protecting [life]. I call on Congress … to stand up and be bold and courageous.”

Josh encouraged all pro-lifers to become even more active in defending life, “by going to the ballot box, by going to churches and community groups, and speak out. Get on social media – make sure that you are voicing – God's given each of us a platform, use it as a platform to further His cause, which is life.”

During the interview Josh and Anna said that their four children are “such a blessing from God,” then shared that their “latest gift,” about whose arrival they are really excited, is due in early July.
