Why Jill and Jessa Came Forward as Brother Josh Duggar's Victims

Why Jill and Jessa Came Forward as Brother Josh Duggar's Victims

Originally posted 06/10/2015 12:00PM

When Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald came forward as victims of their brother's molestation in a tell-all interview on Fox News last week, critics accused parents Michelle and Jim Bob of persuading their daughters to defend eldest son Josh Duggar.

However, a source close to the family tells PEOPLE that the focus was always going to be on Michelle, 48, and Jim Bob, 49, until Jill stepped forward. "She, too, wanted to give an interview. Her parents were concerned because they felt she had been through enough, but she was clear – she never wanted this information public."

Indeed, the girls were more upset during their interview by what they felt was a violation of privacy than by Josh's actions, which they insisted had been forgiven years earlier, before cameras even started rolling on 19 Kids and Counting (then 17 Kids and Counting) in 2008. As a family, "we've already moved on," said both Jessa and Jill on The Kelly File.

The attention – and Josh's actions – were initially met with a general sense of anger, indignation and embarrassment on part of the county's residents, though others were sympathetic to Duggar heads of household Michelle, 48, and Jim Bob, 49.
