It's rare to see a pregnant teenager go through with an abortion on a major network show, so when 15-year-old Becky made the difficult decision to have one in the Friday Night Lights episode "I Can't," it was a big deal. Becky struggled with the decision, talking it out with peers and a mentor and making some poignant realizations along the way, like "how awful it would be if I had a baby and I spent the rest of my life resenting him or her." The show really did a quality job of portraying the real-world realities of unwanted teen pregnancy.
