No Easy Decision?

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.


  1. It makes me so sick. I can't even watch that stuff or I will explode. It's so evil. And you are so right about the "rare" plea. They don't mean it, not for a minute.

  2. My husband and I only saw the coverage on Fox last night, but it was enough to anger us both a LOT. The really hard decisions come WAY before and they come from the parents of the teens being raised in a morally misleading society, but shows like that never mention the factors that led to the situation in the first place.

    Thank you for this post and best wishes on your nice blog!

  3. Ugh. I heard about the teen mom's abortion a couple days ago and I was instantly sick to my stomach. I watch the 16 & Pregnant show (and Teen Mom) after hearing about it on an adoption blog - there was a teenage couple who did chose adoption, but I get sick every time I hear any of Dr. Drew's comments and advice to the girls. It's so sad - and HOW is he qualified to be advising these girls, anyway?!
    I thought the Big Hollywood article was excellent!

  4. I watched it because I secretly watch 16&pregnant. I couldn't believe my eyes....I was screaming well more yelling at the tv because the poor girl was saying she loved her baby even though he was making her sick, how those clumps of cells turn into her daughter already born....It was awful absolutely awful to watch her reconcile the act.

    I just recently watched a follow up on 16& pregnant and every single girl said what kind of BCP they were using now and how they were using it, how it was implanted etc...I almost pooped in my pants...
