Duggar fans are outraged as Joy Forsyth disregards her unborn baby’s safety.
In a recent YouTube video, Joy included a clip of herself and her family in the car together. Noticeably, the pregnant mom is not wearing a seatbelt despite being in the front seat.
A photo was reposted on Reddit. This is where Duggar fans and critics are expressing their concerns. You can check out a photo below. The car was visibly moving when she did not have her seatbelt fastened.
One Duggar snarker said, “I didn’t think anyone went without seatbelts in the front anymore. I mean, do they somehow disable that annoying beep that tells you to put it on?”
Someone else chimed in, “I don’t…understand the mentality. It’s a seatbelt. It’s the simplest thing you can possibly do to prevent grievous bodily harm and death.”
What do the experts say?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, “Buckling up through all stages of your pregnancy is the single most effective action you can take to protect yourself and your unborn child in a crash.”
