This would have been her fifth baby and would have joined Spurgeon, Henry, Ivy, and Fern in the summer of 2023. She learned it was a missed miscarriage, so she needed a D&C. After hearing this, fans and critics called out the Duggar daughter, arguing that she had an abortion. All of this talk online turned into quite a firestorm.
