Youth Pro-life Leaders Respond to MTV’s Abortion Episode

by Bryan Kemper and Kristan Hawkins | New York, NY | LifeNews.com | 12/29/10 8:33 PM

For weeks we have been hearing about the MTV special that would feature a teen couple contemplating abortion. We were tempted to write about this show last week but decided to wait until the show aired. We know that MTV is no bastion of decency or truth, but we did not think the show would actually go as far as it did. We were wrong.

One very telling feature of the show was that it played without commercial interruption; this is not normal for MTV. This show was obviously funded by some one or some organization with an agenda; a very deadly agenda.

To be honest it felt like this was almost scripted as the perfect pro-abortion propaganda film. The couple was young, poor, and volatile; and they also already had one baby. They talked about God and the father had a Jesus tattoo on one shoulder and was wearing a necklace that looked like a rosary. They could have made it an extreme case, but they kept it simple; I don’t think they could have cast a better couple for this show to make the audience sympathize with their decision to kill their child.

The teen mom goes to her best friend for advice and decides to call the abortion facility to ask a few questions. We have a hard time believing this call was not pre-staged and the questions set up by the show. First she asked about what kind of abortions were available and the phone operator for the abortion facility of course used the typical rhetoric like “pregnancy tissue expelled’ and “pregnancy removed”. When she asked the clinic worker about what would happen to her she was told she might feel relieved or sad, but more towards relief.

Interestingly enough, the show discussed the fact that the abortion facility would not allow children in the waiting room; one can only imagine how bad it would be for business. They know that if some of these women saw precious little children playing on the floor of the lobby, they would back out of their abortions.

After Markai’s abortion, one surprising conversation she had with her husband was the conflict they showed between the couple when he referred to the baby as “it”. She got angry with him for using that term but still denied that the baby was actually a human being. They even talked about how the decision to abort their child was a “parenting” decision, like this was the same as send your kid to their room or grounding them.

What the show ultimately attempted to show was that of course this was a hard decision, but in the end it was something she had to decide on her own. They showed some inner strife to try and keep the appearance of a non-biased portrayal. They wanted us to feel sympathy and to come away saying that now matter what our opinion on the abortion debate is. Even after Markai has her abortion and is sitting with Dr. Drew in the studio, she still cannot say with certainty that she made the right decision. When asked about how she felt about the abortion, Markai responded that she is still confused and sad. Dr. Drew, being the ultimate abortion expert, just brushed her emotions off as something everyone goes through. Where is the compassion? Where is the counseling she needs?

The show ended with Dr. Drew interviewing three girls who have had abortions, all of whom were supposedly happy with their decision. He stacked the panel to make I seem that no one regrets the decision and even said that most girls within two years feel like they made the right decision. There was even talk about how the decision to abort a child was a “parenting” decision, like this was the same as send your kid to their room or grounding them.

As a leader in the youth pro-life movement I was horrified as I watched this show, knowing the damage it will do to young women. This show trivialized the killing of innocent children and tried to make teens think this is a normal and healthy option for them.

After watching the show, Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America commented, “We just witnessed the planned, televised murder of an innocent human person. It was a blatant assault on the youth of America in an attempt to push them towards abortion.”

I whole-heartedly agree with Kristan, I believe this show was nothing but pro-abortion propaganda. The show was designed to de-stigmatize abortion, to make it seem like nothing more than going to the dentist to have a bad tooth removed. We can only hope and pray that the small amount of struggle and grief they did show will overshadow the lies they portrayed to us.

The good news is that we know we are winning the battle to show the truth, that is why pro-abortion organization are desperate to get this kind of destructive show to America’s youth.
There are some amazing youth pro-life organizations who are on the front lines fighting to bring the truth to young people in America and around the world. Stand True, Students for Life of America, Crossroads, Rock for Life, Survivors, Generations for Life, Youth Defence and so many more are committed educating, equipping and activating young people.

In just a few weeks many of us will come together to host the largest and most effective student pro-life conferences in the world, in Washington D.C. The Students for Life of America National Conference will help build strong pro-life warriors as we build a culture of life and ultimately bring an end to preborn genocide in America and around the world.

The founder of MTV once claimed that he did not influence the youth of America, but that he owned them. There is a strong; growing movement of young people who stand on the truth and MTV will not succeed as long as we have a breath left in us. Many years ago I wrote a youth pro-life pledge and I feel the final line of the pledge is an appropriate message for us to send to MTV:
You will not silence our message,
You will not mock our God,
You will stop killing our generation!

Was it “No Easy Decision” for MTV to air black girl’s abortion or was it a return to Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project”?

On the MTV show “No Easy Decision” , Markai Durham, who was first seen last month on “16 and Pregnant,” discovers she is expecting again and must decide whether to have the baby.

Her decision to terminate the pregnancy is the centerpiece of “No Easy Decision” and the fact that MTV chose to air this is no surprise, given their pro-abortion bent. What is of interest to me is the close relationship they have with Planned Parenthood who has been accused by many of targeting abortion to the black population for reasons of limiting black births. Is it possible, that MTV is using a Black Girl to get this message of a positive slant on black abortion across in the same way Margaret Sanger’s “Negro Project” deliberately solicited the “help” of Black Ministers, early in Planned Parenthood’s foundation?

In 1939, Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger , and member of the American Eugenics Society, began The Negro Project. The Negro Project was but a precursor to what eugenicists wanted to implement on a much larger scale, by convincing leaders in the African American Community to support Planned Parenthood under the guise of “helping the black man.”

The main objectives of the [proposed] Population Congress is to…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.”

– Margaret Sanger, “Plan for Peace”, 1932 Senate hearings

Read what Planned Parenthood Founder, Margaret Sanger, wrote in a letter to Pathfinder Founder, Clarence Gamble ,
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. The minister’s work is also important and also he should be trained, perhaps by the Federation [of Eugenicists] as to our ideals and the goal that we hope to reach. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.

Now, look at how cozy MTV and Planned Parenthood have become:

MTV and Planned Parenthood have worked on many projects together – Recently MTV and the Kaiser Family Foundation, working with Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and its nationwide network of health centers, unveiled GYT: “Get Yourself Tested,” a campaign .


According to this report by Bryan Kemper: (Full Report) MTV IN BED WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD

There seems to be a money circle in MTV’s programming. First air a sexually explicit program with ads for condoms thrown in between. Then air ads featuring a toll-free number to connect the kids to Planned Parenthood. It is a never-ending cycle that continues on MTV’s website.

MTV also partners with Planned Parenthood. The commercials that run during these shows are often for condoms and a project called 1-800-BESAFE1 in which kids call for birth control and abortion information. Not only will they give this information to kids of any age,they send it out in a plain white wrapper so the kid’s parents will not know about it. This number will also connect you to the nearest Planned Parenthood abortion clinic automatically.

Another MTV project is called, “Fight For Your Rights: Take A Stand Against Discrimination.” This is in conjunction with Planned Parenthood and the Henry J. Kaiser Foundation. Here are just some of the main links the website gives out in the “Fight For Your Rights” section:

MTV is obviously not just a music network anymore. They have decided to join the likes of Planned Parenthood and are trying to take over the role of parent to today’s youth. They have decided to sexually educate teens. They have become partners in the culture of death that is prevalent in modern pop culture.

It is no surprise that Planned Parenthood lauded MTV’s decision to show this….

“MTV’s No Easy Decision…serves as a teachable moment for parents and teens about the importance of open and honest communication,” Planned Parenthood said in a statement to E! News, heralding the episode for its “thoughtful portrayal” of a young couple confronting the consequences of an unintended pregnancy. “We at Planned Parenthood hope that more parents will have conversations about birth control and safer sex with their teens now that teen pregnancy and parenthood is in the pop culture spotlight.”

You can’t help but ask if the decision to show a black girl getting an abortion on MTV who partners with and promotes Planned Parenthood is not a return to the “Negro Project?
