Sorry I missed it.

It's an incredibly important topic that, whether we talk about it or not, will still take place. It is far better that this type of discussion be out in the open, so that misconceptions (pardon the pun!) and other issues are on the table. This can only lead to healthier choices. Not necessarily more abortions. But educated choices where regret is less likely to occur.

Perhaps this documentary will open up dialogue for a teen and her parent(s)? How can that be a bad thing?

You didn't miss a thing. As expected, they DID NOT SHOW the actual abortion. What a shock!?!?
I wonder why they didn't even come close to televise a "simple medical procedure" where a "mass of tissue" is removed. It's not like an abortion kills a developing human being, a defenseless person, or anything like that, right?
<<End of sarcasm>>

So why did MTV skip the abortion? Because then, the abortion industry couldn’t get away with their lies. And they do lie. Just like you and your Topix pro-death buddies lie in an attempt to get rid of your guilt.

Hi HAAAG! Stop stalking me. I don't like DRIED UP HAGS, thanks!

Anyway, what MEDICAL PROCEDURES do they show on television, sweet haggy? Perhaps they should show us CHILDBIRTH as well?

Get a CLUE, HAG!

Idiot, live childbirth has been shown on TV before. Live surgeries are also televised. But the point is, the pro-death crowd insists that abortion is just a simple medical procedure, then why not show it for the whole world to see?
Your denial will not erase the fact that you had your unborn child murdered and that you support women doing the same to their offspring. That truth will follow you until the day you die and beyond.
Happy lonely New Year!

They won't show an abortion, because if they did they would most certainly have to conclude that a developing human being is indeed killed by abortion. It is a gruesome and completely inhumane act of killing.

No they don't you RETARDED HAG.
And if they DID televise an abortion at the 8 week interval or prior, a period during which MOST abortions take place, you would be sadly disappointed (wah?) as there isn't much to see.
In fact, they SHOULD televise a "typical" abortion. Just so DRIED UP, RETARDED LOSERS like YOU who get their jollies from their abortion porn will be proven to be the ignorant idiots they truly are. Maybe you should keep collecting maxi pads and tampons from the garbage, dear haggy!
Now go buy a gallon of oil for that crackly, nasty crotch of yours, dear. Your make-believe hubby may actually pay attention to you tonight, after your annual bath, HAAAAG!!
LOLOLOLOL
If that were the case, why don't they televise an abortion. I think the ones who would be sadly disappointed would be the pro-aborts. Abortion is a gruesome act of slaughter on an unborn child, it aint pretty no matter how you look at it. It will lead to regret, both in this life and the next.

Stop with the melodrama about the afterlife, mary. You know that I feel people should be educated and know *exactly* what they are getting into before they have sex. And that I feel that the educational component should include the (age-appropriate) gestational stages of a z/e/f in utero, just to make it absolutely clear what is going on "in there" during various stages of a pregnancy.

But to show the actual procedure would be excessive, IMO. Should we show people actual procedures for ALL elective procedures? I wonder how people would respond to seeing an abortion of an 8 week old fetus, though. Of course some will find it repugnant, but others will not. I don't know if that will serve your purpose as much as you'd like it to.

Maybe they didn't show it because to show it would be an incredible invasion of minors' privacy? I mean, how would you like it if your [hypothetical] daughter's pap smear was televised on cable TV? Or her c-section? Or her tubal ligation?

Anyone who wouldn't be disgusted and bothered by an aborted child, needs to seek Jesus. I saw some liberal selfish person say " stop your melodrama about the afterlife" so sad. This is one of the many reasons people need Jesus. He helps us to do the right thing. Oh and in case i haven't made it clear MURDERING Babies is the wrong thing to do. P.s just think of the channel that showed it. It had pumped more garbage into the world than most

No babies were murdered during the course of that show. And there are PLENTY of pro-choice Christians.

Why would it be excessive especially if you say you want them to know exactly what they are getting into before hand? Also, if you would want them to know exactly what is going on, then why would you be for artificial contraceptives especially because it seems like everyday we are hearing about some new case of harm that women are being burdened by because of the side effects of artificial contraceptives. Blood clots are becoming more and more common and are a result of artificial contraceptive usage.

You are insane, racist. Prove your claims(about BC, above), or go back to your abortion porn stroke-fest & STFU.

Hmmm condoms, pills, baby murder. Even a child who just learned his shapes can tell which one docent fit. Don't try to blurt the lines, they are too clear to those of us who don't like baby murder

Where did murdering infants come up in this special? I would have expected far more outrage over televised infanticide.

You must love being reported, because I just reported you for the word kaylayossi reports you for. I'll continue to report it each time you use it. Several of us are reporting you and hopefully you'll be banned soon. Happy New Year!
Why the whining? It's an accurate assessment of the total lack of intelligence - in fact, it applies to you, as well.
Here's hoping 2011 brings you all the xtianist love, compassion, and intelligence you display here, and all the joy you deserve.
(for the stupid girl, that is none - I know you get confused easily.)

Doesn't fit. Are you sure you aren't against birth control as well?
