On ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money, one of the main characters, Karen, gets pregnant and as the story goes, the pregnancy is UNWANTED. Needless to say she runs to the abortion clinic in her Jimmy Choos to deal with the unpleasant situation, but suddenly has a change of heart and cannot go through with it. (How truly brave of her.) So I got to thinking. This particular situation comes up often on TV and in movies and yet 9 times out of 10 the pro-choice Hollywood writers let the characters keep the babies rather than abort them- think Sex in the City and Juno. I wonder why that is? If abortion is such a safe, common, and easy procedure -hell it’s not even a baby- then why not depict abortions on TV and in movies? Why not let the characters like Karen actually go through with it and get on with her life? Because after all, we don’t want her dealing with the stress of being “punished with a baby” do we?
