There’s sure to be an exciting football game in this week’s episode of Friday Night Lights, but it’s the outcome of Becky’s pregnancy, not the game, that I’ll be interested in tonight. And I’ll be rooting for an abortion.
I did find Accidentally on Purpose on CBS, the story of Billie, (Jenna Elfman) a movie critic who has a fling with the young, handsome, unstable Zach (Jon Foster). She quickly becomes pregnant.
You’d think that something that happens to over a million women a year would merit more than one on-screen portrayal since Maude terminated her pregnancy 37 years ago.
Abortion’s absence from TV shows is hard to swallow when television has always been a medium for discussing social issues.
