In Amanda Marcotte’s blog post for RH Reality Check, she weighs the merits of No Easy Decision, MTV’s take on the difficult choice of abortion, against pro-life/anti-choice activists’ objections over its pro-life slant. The special, which aired Dec. 28, is a spin-off of the MTV show 16 and Pregnant. Dr. Drew Pinsky moderates the episode’s documenting of one young couple’s process of deciding to have abortion.
