Skip to comments.Planned Parenthood: “Refreshing” to see reality of abortion on tv show?

Last night in an ironically titled episode, Small Victories, the NBC show Parenthood included an abortion story line, after one of the characters playing a high school girl found she had been impregnated by her teen boyfriend.
Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards was ecstatic, because her abortion biz was mentioned and featured prominently, including its new logo (see screen shot above)!
Planned Parenthood Action was a little less obvious, simply retweeting that the episode was refreshing
Refreshing? I saw a lot of heartbreak. I saw a lot of crying.
Here was the refreshing reality.
Drew didnt want Amy to get the abortion. To his credit he said he loved her and wanted to make things work.
But Drew had no say, no choice. The refreshing reality is fathers must helplessly stand by and watch their children get slaughtered if that is the mothers decision.
Amy felt trapped, as if she had no other way out. As Frederica Mathewes-Green famously said, No woman wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal caught in a trap wants to gnaw off its own leg. Thats the refreshing reality of the glorified right to abortion.
Neither Drew nor Amy told their parents, who seemed quite caring and supportive.
Then, after Drew drove her home from the abortion, Amy called off their relationship, saying she needed not just space, but a lot of space. This is also the refreshing reality of abortion. It breaks up most relationships.
The end of the episode shows Drew collapsing into the arms of his mother. He couldnt bring himself to tell her about the situation before the abortion, even though she had tried to talk to him, sensing something was wrong.
But after the abortion Drew realized it was all too big, too much for him. So he belatedly turned to his mom, as is also often the refreshing reality of abortion, who was now left with trying to help pick up pieces of her sons broken heart as well as the death of her own grandchild.
Yes, that was just a glimpse into the the refreshing reality of abortion.
In other words Amy didn't want to deal with the inconvenient consequences of her irresponsible behavior so murder seemed like an easy alternative.
Poor father and child.
Two lives ruined over some airhead. He will live out the rest of his live missing his child, while she becomes a NOW activist talking about her “lady parts”, and how someone needs to pay for her birth control.
“He will live out the rest of his live missing his child,”
So will she. It’s just not possible for a woman to have an abortion and not feel some degree of regret or remorse unless she’s a sociopath.
“while she becomes a NOW activist talking about her lady parts, and how someone needs to pay for her birth control.”
We don’t know that. Personally I’m praying that this young woman finds God and turns her life around, just as Bristol Palin used her personal experience as a teen mother to become an advocate for premarital abstinence.
Amy is not real. She is a character on some TV show.
The purpose of TV programming is to change attitudes and promote agendas. The purpose is not to entertain, but the story line is designed to grab you and take you through the episode, and to relax your sense of critical thinking, so that the desired attitudes pass right through into your mind.
If you watch to analyze, and not to be entertained, you can easily discern the underlying theme of all major TV programs. I do, and thus can not watch TV with anyone else in the room.
Desperate Housewives: heterosexual marriage is a sham since everyone is cheating, lying, deceitful, back-stabbing, shallow, untrustworthy and phoney.
2 1/2 men. You don’t have to grow up and be a responsible human being. You can think only of getting layed. Pre-adolescent children should see your immature piggish actions and should think it’s just great. Women are either fat, ugly coarse witches, or something to be pawed at.
Here’s what I found interesting: the Planned Parenthood staffer was shown telling the girl, “If you want to keep it we can help you...” and we heard the whole dialog. But then when she started to say, “If you decide not to keep it...” the sound faded into music for a few seconds. I’m pretty sure they never used the word “abortion.”
I thought that was a big cop-out.
I understand that, but everyone else on this thread talks about her as if she’s a real person so I decided to follow suit. It’s rather long-winded to say, “I pray that the young women whom this character represents find God and turn their lives around.”
What rubbish. PP does NOT help women keep their babies. They aggressively market abortion, not adoption or keeping the baby. I did not watch the show; was adoption even mentioned as an option?
I pray that the young couple in Casablanca finally get their lives together ... and the same for the Wuthering Heights duo. Their misery has gone on long enough.
