There Were 18 Portrayals of Abortion on TV This Year, 6 of Them Made Killing Babies Look Funny

The abortion industry has co-opted Hollywood into its plan to normalize the killing of unborn babies.

Planned Parenthood even has an employee dedicated to it.

They use celebrity shout-outs and plotlines that parrot pro-abortion talking points to subtly – or not so subtly – push their radical pro-abortion agenda on the American public.

A recent analysis of TV show plots indicated 18 different shows included abortions in their storylines this year, and one third of them were “comedic abortion stories,” according to In Style.

The analysis came from Gretchen Sisson, Ph.D., a research sociologist at University of California, San Francisco. The school is well known for pushing out research with a strong pro-abortion slant, and Sisson’s report is no exception.

She celebrated that so many TV shows showed abortion situations comically, writing:

There were 18 portrayals of abortion on TV this year, detailed in our report at that link, which is on par with the last few years’ 13 to 22. … After a recent uptick in comedic abortion stories, a full one-third of this year’s storylines appeared on comedies (including Dear White People, Claws, Insatiable, and Insecure). We also continued to see more characters who were already parenting have, or discuss having had, an abortion (from Law and Order: SVU to Superstore, and more). This one-third on TV represents a shift toward more accurate demographic portrayals: As of 2014, 59% of abortions were obtained by women who were already mothers, and an even greater majority will have children at some point.

Her research noted how the TV programs better represented reality this year by showing more black women and women with born children having abortions. That much is true. Minority women have a disproportionately high number of abortions in the U.S. Many women who already have born children also abort unborn babies.

According to the report:

For example, Claws overtly addresses an anti-abortion trope directed at black women, when Virginia wonders if her baby might be “the next Obama.” (Though she and her friend ultimately agree that no one’s baby would be as smart as Obama, and move on with a laugh.) This year’s depictions often portrayed black women having abortions with the support of friends, partners, or ex-partners, debunking the myth that people have abortions in isolation from those they love.

On Dear White People, first-generation college student Coco imagines a future in which her potential daughter is accepted into the same college and is able to achieve the goals that Coco has for herself; instead, Coco has an abortion, deciding to keep those dreams as her own. Star, Empire, and The Deuce also featured detailed plot lines about black women choosing abortion, while Insecure included a conversation about one character’s past abortion, which she had previously kept from her close friends.

The problem with these TV programs is not that they show abortion situations but that their messages make the killing of unborn babies seem normal or even funny. Few, if any TV shows portray the reality that many women deeply regret aborting their unborn babies afterward. They do not show how abortion facilities often manipulate vulnerable, struggling women by pushing abortion as the answer to their problems. They do not show how some women leave abortion facilities in ambulances, or how others die along with their unborn babies.

And few remind their viewers of the most disturbing truth of all, that an abortion kills a living, unique human child who deserves a chance at life.
