In the words of the brilliant Mark Crutcher, "Killing your child shouldn't be an easy decision." Yet despite its title, apparently MTV implies that abortion is exactly that -- an easy decision. Their new show, No Easy Decision, trivializes abortion and furthers MTV's liberal agenda by portraying the decision to have an abortion as just another option within the realm of "women's reproductive rights."
(Sidebar: I know I said I was shifting my focus, but I wouldn't be me if I didn't dabble into religion and politics every now and then. It's just who I am!)
Ok, so I readily admit that I haven't actually seen this MTV show that everyone is talking about. Show like this just serve to raise my blood pressure to dangerous levels. But I've read some reviews from trusted sources and frankly, I don't think I need to watch it to know exactly what their goal is. Foremost, it's to coddle their pro-abort supporters like Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the rest of their ilk, since they were so upset that MTV's other teen pregnancy show, 16 and Pregant, didn't show any of the teens having abortions. Could this be a more glaring indictment about what they truly stand for? Certainly not for keep abortion rare if they're upset that teenagers aren't having them! In public!
I'll leave the rest of the commentary to those who have had the brass to watch the despicable show, and point you to Kathryn Jean Lopez, the New York Times (shockingly), and Big Hollywood for some great analyses.
But thanks, MTV, for keeping our culture self-centered, secular, and pornified.
