The Washington Post sank to a new level of depravity last weekend when one of its columnists fumed that a TV character chose life instead of aborting her unborn baby.
In a Feb. 19 piece, regular columnist Kate Cohen described herself “storming” into her daughter’s room one day after watching a recent episode of “Atypical.”
“Please tell me the therapist is not going to have that baby,” she told her daughter.
“Sorry, mom,” her daughter responded.
The problem, to Cohen, is that too few TV shows are getting on board with abortion activists’ attempts to “normalize” the killing of unborn babies in abortions. Because respecting the value and right to life of an unborn child is a bad thing, but killing a child in the womb for mere convenience is good, or so it seems for Cohen.
“Dammit!” she wrote. “I was hoping that the young, professional woman, upon learning she was pregnant right after her jerky boyfriend left her, might decide to have an abortion. Instead, it turns out, she doesn’t even consider it.”
“I’m so tired of this,” she continued. “The ability to put a stop to an unwanted pregnancy is part of a kit of tools women have that allow us to determine the course of our own lives. It’s freedom care.”

Abortion has nothing to do with freedom or even medical care. The purpose of an abortion is to destroy the life of a unique, living human being – the woman’s own child. Abortions are not necessary, and they do not save lives.
Every year, nearly 1 million unborn babies are legally aborted in America – “butchered for purposes of convenience,” John Nolte responded at Breitbart.
Nolte questioned why abortion activists like Cohen always promote abortion and never adoption, a life-affirming, loving option when a woman is not ready or able to parent.
Few people view abortion the way Cohen and other radical abortion activists do. Even most Americans who support legalized abortion believe it is a tragedy and something that should be rare.
Nolte said that is the reason why most TV shows and movies avoid the topic.
“Movies and TV shows need their protagonists to be sympathetic, and killing a baby because you weren’t careful and when your responsibility adds up to little more than a week or two away from your ambitious life, is an awful and selfish thing for a person to do,” he wrote, citing statistics that only 1.5 percent of abortions are the result of rape or incest. “This means more than 98.5 percent of the … unborn babies butchered annually are butchered for purposes of convenience …”
Abortion activists are trying to push their life-destroying agenda through the entertainment media anyway. Planned Parenthood even pays an employee just to hobnob with celebrities and lobby them to advocate for abortion through their work.
But no matter how much money the billion-dollar abortion industry spends or how many TV shows or celebrities promote abortion, there always will be people who recognize the truth and fight to protect the unborn.
