MTV Caught in Abortion Debate Over New Show NY Post
With a new show that features a teen who was first seen on MTV's "16 and Pregnant," the network is now facing accusations that it's promoting abortion, reports the New York Post.
The show, called "No Easy Decision," features 19-year-old Markai Durham, who finds out she's pregnant again and deals with deciding whether or not to have the baby, the story says.
Because of the show's unusual content, MTV has scheduled it at 11:30 p.m., past the bedtimes of the network's younger fans.
Durham had a baby daughter in October 2009 and said she and her boyfriend had been using birth control when she got pregnant for the second time. Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek is criticizing the show's official Web site for only linking to pro-choice groups and says the program was done in cooperation with a support group for teens who have had abortions, called Exhale.
