Not all teens who get pregnant become moms. Some young women choose to put their children up for adoption, and others terminate their pregnancies. While MTV has explored the expectant phase, mothering, and the process of adoption, next week the network will cover abortion with No Easy Decision. According to EW:
The special, airing Dec. 28 at 11:30 p.m., will follow one former 16 and Pregnant subject, Markai, as she wrestles with the decision after becoming pregnant for a second time. Dr. Drew Pinsky will also talk with young women who, like 27 percent of teens who end up with unplanned pregnancies, have chosen to end them. MTV sources say the documentary will tackle all sides of the issue, including the importance of contraception and the devastating effects of facing such a decision.
Will you tune in?
