Tonight’s 16 & Pregnant will feature an abortion storyline. Use hashtag #16andloved to show support and solidarity to Brittany, Briana and their family.
MTV’s documentary, No Easy Decision, focused on facts and experiences instead of ideology. Now anti-choicers are responding with lies and abusive statements towards the women featured on the show.
MTV will air a special on teens who choose abortion; the teen birth rate drops and everyone scrambles to claim credit or blame the economy; a fabulous new app for the sexually active; buy a dress, help prevent child marriage.
“16 and Pregnant” rests on the same philosophy behind the anti-choice movement, and no number of glib announcements about safe sex and prevention can overwrite that underlying message.
