Duggar Family

Snaps Pic of Miscarried Baby

12/15/2011 3:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The family from TLC's "19 Kids & Counting" chose a unique way to commemorate the life of their 20th child, who passed away this week in a miscarriage -- they took an artsy picture of the fetal corpse ... and distributed it at the memorial.

Jubilee Shalom Duggar was due in April ... but Michelle Duggar suffered a miscarriage on Sunday in her 2nd trimester.

The Duggars held a memorial today at their church in Arkansas, where they distributed the above photographs -- containing messages like, "There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."

The photos were first posted on Twitter by a family member -- and then surfaced on a fan site.

We reached out to the family for comment -- so far, no word back.

I know a family that have a very similar picture and the same verse, of their baby also lost in the 2nd trimester. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and deal with loss. Each family each family does so in their own way.

TLC started as "The Learning Channel" with some people at a chalk board teaching basic algebra. It's gone from that to a complete sideshow.

These people are so tacky. Not the feet or the hands. The crazy family photo, like they are at a wedding or something. Anything for publicity!!

Wow. I'm not going to judge the appropriateness of how they chose to grieve.

This is just not right! The baby never saw the light of day, yet they took pics of it. Something is inherently wrong and disrespectful about this.

Michelle you keep looking for signs well this is a sign. . .stop with the baby factory and raise the children that you already have. Enjoy your grandchildren and welcome this next stage of your life instead of running from it.

Daddy Jim maybe you need to open your eyes and see that your need for sex may leave you without a wife.

Maybe she will take this as a "sign from God" to shut the factory down....enough is enough!

These duggar people will exploit anything for $$$. Weird, for proclaiming to be such religious people, is nothing sacred or even private?? ALSO, Duggars, I think God is trying to tell you that 19 is enough!
If not, the mother may die on the next attempt!!

Really? It seems like these people are exploiting their miscarried baby for a few more minutes of fame. Wasn't necessary for them to have a huge memorial, if anything it should have been something private for the family. No need to publicize it.
