Many women regret aborting their unborn babies.
But the entertainment media has been helping the abortion industry promote the misleading claim that most women do not.
The latest example is in a new episode of the popular NBC drama “This Is Us.” According to Breitbart, main character Kate, played by Chrissy Metz, admits to her husband Toby, actor Chris Sullivan, that she had an abortion at age 18.
Kate tells her husband that she does not regret her decision to abort her unborn child. She tells him that she had just ended her relationship with an abusive boyfriend and she was not ready to be a mother, according to the report.
“It was, I mean, the toughest decision I’ve ever made in my life,” she says. “But I don’t regret it. But I made it alone and you know I’ve lived with it alone. Wait, what are your eyes doing? Are you judging me?”

Toby looks confused and asks why she waited so long to tell him, especially after they spent two years struggling with infertility.
“It took us two years to have Jack,” Toby responds. “That’s two years of talking about pregnancy all the time.”
Kate answers: “I was 18 years old. That decision was wrapped in the darkest, lowest, most painful time of my life. It was like the most painful relationship of my life, and all I wanted to do — I wanted to just lock it up, and I didn’t want to think about it. I didn’t want to think about him. He was so cruel to me.”
The scene ends with the couple arguing about if Kate’s abortion is “all in the past” or if it is still affecting their relationship.
Abortion advocacy groups frequently claim that few women regret their abortions, though thousands upon thousands of testimonies at the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and other venues prove otherwise.
Still, Hollywood has been participating in the propaganda campaign through TV shows, movies and celebrities like Michelle Williams who credited her abortion for her success at the Golden Globes.
The Planned Parenthood abortion chain also spends money urging directors and producers to promote abortions. As Breitbart reports, “In 2019, it was revealed that Planned Parenthood was contracted as a consultant on more than 150 TV and film productions.”
Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report showed more than 345,000 abortions – each representing the life of a unique, irreplaceable human being. Abortions are evil because they intentionally kill human beings growing inside their mothers’ wombs. And while many women do regret aborting their unborn babies, regret or lack thereof does not make it any less wrong.
