A petition calling for the cancellation of a popular reality show was recently filed after one of its 'stars' compared America's abortion industry to the Holocaust.

19 Kids and Counting airs weekly on TLC, with an average viewing audience of approximately 1.5 million. The broadcast follows the lives of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, as well as their 19 children, who range in age from 3 to 25 years. The Duggars are all unashamed Christians, and regularly speak at various events across the country.

However, remarks from Jim Bob Duggar at last month's Values Voters Summit have now generated an outcry from abortion advocates. In his address, Duggar compared the United States' abortion practices today with the Nazi Germany Holocaust during World War II.

"Back a few years ago," Duggar said at the summit, "I heard Governor Huckabee speak and he was sharing about how he had taken his daughter Sarah over to one of the concentration camps where a lot of Jewish people were killed. And he said, as they were walking out of that concentration camp, ... [Sarah] looked up at him and she said, 'Daddy, why didn't somebody do something?'"
