NBC show 'Parenthood' uses teen abortion as plot, endorsed by Planned Parenthood
Thursday, January 10, 2013 - By Bound4Life

The episode was called “Small Victories,” but Parenthood producers might have done better to call it “Small Dead Baby.” On Tuesday night, the popular NBC drama about dysfunctional people featured Planned Parenthood’s number-one service, abortion, in an episode where a teenage girl finds out she is pregnant and quickly has an abortion. This episode, endorsed by Planned Parenthood itself, was more like a giant advertisement for the abortion provider than it was an entertainment show. What is shameful is that a network TV show would use its prized airtime to create a glorified commercial for teens to have an abortion without parental consent.
