Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of the popular TLC series 19 Kids and Counting are forming a coalition of pro-life groups to help fight against abortion.
The idea stems from their recent trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC; to the Duggars, abortion is itself a holocaust.
"A couple of weeks after we went to the Holocaust Museum it dawned on us that there is a holocaust taking place right here in America!" the Duggars wrote.
"More than 56 million lives have been destroyed in our country! That is over 4,000 babies being killed and 4,000 women being wounded each day!"
"We talked and prayed about what our family could do to make a difference in saving the lives of the unborn. We ended up contacting the national pro-life groups."
"We asked them to all work together and pool their incredible resources to motivate and activate many people to get involved in ending abortion in America."
The Duggars called Dan Pennell, CEO of WMtek, a Fort Pierce, Fla., based web development company, who immediately caught the vision, Jim Bob said.
Working with Jim Bob and Mathew Staver of Liberty Counsel, Dan formed the coalition of pro-life groups that has become what is now Life United.
Its partners: The Duggar family; LIFE International; L.E.A.R.N; Living Waters; Liberty Counsel; National Center for Life and Liberty; Family Research Council; The Justice Foundation.
"Life United exists not only to educate people with the reality of abortion in our generation, but to do something about it," the group said in a statement.
"Our partners have come together with their resources to create the tools that will help motivate and enable others to value and support human life."
“Americans are being forced to fund a Hitler-kind of killing machine," the group says, calling the last four decades "the 40 most bloody years in America."
"We are committed to end abortion in our lifetime. Abortion is the most senseless, inhumane form of child abuse one can imagine. It is time to restore a culture of life."
