@chasesgirl:  I am so with you on this one. I had a girl who posted her dead baby’s pic on FB. It creeped me out for an entire month.

They really had a pic of the baby when it was dead and put it on a shirt. That’s kinda gross. I get putting a picture of someone that has passed on a shirt, but seriously the pic should be from when they were alive not dead. Remember their lives, not their deaths.

And I don’t really “get” the shirts or whatever either. I am a bit creeped out by them, unless it’s like a shirt for a fundraiser in their honor or something. Like a friend of mine’s brother passed while we were in HS but the family created a memorial scholarship that they give out to like 6 HS seniors every year, and they have motorcycle rides in his honor and such, to raise the money. I don’t even think those have his picture on them, now that I think of it.

any of this public stuff, tshirts, facebook, whatever — I definitely think it’s weird.

As a woman who has lost a child, I can see getting a picture put on a shirt for a “In memory of” walk.. or pregnancy or loss awareness/walk.  But to wear it outside of that I couldn’t see doing that.   

  With that being said.  In no way would I be able to do it

When I was pregnant I was on a social networking site for pregnant women. One of the rules was no posting pictures of deceased babies as it’s upsetting to others. There were a number of women who suffered the tragic loss of their child and posted the picture anyway. I never flagged them (maybe others did) cause I can’t even imagine the pain of losing your baby and I understood that it was part of their grieving. 

However, wearing a picture like that in public is another story. It’s not just empathetic mothers looking, it’s everyone. People find images like that disturbing, tragic as they are. I would imagine someone doing that is just trying to deal with a terrible situation and not thinking about how it might offend others.

Yeah I get having the photo privately as a way of remembering them but it wear it around is very strange.  I remember when the 19 kids and counting people lost their baby (would have been 20th) there was a photo that got released and all these people freaked out about it… it was a beautiful, tasteful, and not creepy (IMO) picture.  I think its a little weird they released it to the press, but I get why they took it and kept it.  So yea a picture like this i kind of get, but why on earth would anyone wear it on a shirt?

@chasesgirl:  That is strange…Personally, it upsets me to see pictures like that. Even this one of the Duggar baby’s hand is making me a little teary 🙁

I think that’s a very private thing, I’m not sure it should be made so public in my opinion. I get that they should always be remembered but a t-shirt seems a very unusual way to remember if they aren’t fundraising. I would understand keeping photos and the tags etc but not wearing something that anyone can judge (except perhaps a picture in a locket but that’s hidden again you see). Just my opinion

One of my FB friends posted a picture of her, her husband and their stillborn child on her wall for all of her “friends” to see. It was disturbing and something that I’ll never get out of my head. I can’t even imagine what it feels like to go through that but I personally think that posting pictures on the internet or wearing a tshirt with a dead body is inappropriate. Other people aren’t given the choice whether or not they want to see these images so they shouldn’t be posted or worn around town. I know that everyone has their own way to grieve but something like this should really be kept private.
