MTV abortion special: Happy for the kill
"Now we get to 'No Easy Decision,' which follows one of the teen moms from '16 and Pregnant.' Markai finds out eight months after having her daughter that she is pregnant again and decides this time to abort.
Announcing the special, Entertainment Weekly wrote, 'MTV sources say the documentary will tackle all sides of the issue. ...'
So I expected the pro-life position to be fairly represented alongside the pro-abortion position - by educating on the documented harm of abortion to women, describing fetal development at the age of the baby being aborted and offering a counseling session at a pregnancy care center as well as an abortion clinic. I was resigned that Markai would move ahead with her abortion but thought her decision would be fully informed.
None of this came to pass.
