MTV To Air Abortion Special Following Former ’16 And Pregnant’ Subject
After documenting dozens of teen mothers’ stories via its hit 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom series, MTV will tackle abortion. According to Entertainment Weekly, the special entitled No Easy Decision will air on Dec 28 at 11:30p.m. It will follow 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 told EW that the documentary will tackle all sides of the issue, including the importance of contraception and the devastating effects of facing such a decision. [EW]
