Addictive TV

As much as I LOVE Thursday nights and get so excited about my favorite shows coming on, I have such a hard time sometimes watching Grey's and Private Practice. All this talk on abortons - I swear every other show has some talk of abortion in it and I just can't figure out what the show is trying to comminicate...the obvious could be that women should have the right to choose because it is their body and the government has given them that right but somehow I hope that they are trying to show the regret Addison has aftter having her abortion 6 years ago and that possibly being her only chance to have a child to show the other side of the pro-choice movement but ugh I don't know, I worry it is the latter. I just hate that a TV show on primetime television shows something as controversial and awful as killing a baby that is 19 weeks old and even going into detail about crushing his/her skull and the baby FEELING that at that gestation. I am probably opening up a can of worms by even writing about this and hopefully am not offending anyone too badly by voicing the hurt this episode made me feel but it was just awful. I don't understand what is happening in this world sometimes. I need to stop because I am about to venture down the negative path and really I just need to take this as an opportunity/reminder to pray for those who are struggling with difficult decisions such as abortion. As for my addictive TV shows - please quit talking about such controversial topics - but I guess that is what makes it dramatic TV right? AHH...

  1. It is heartbreaking to think about- especially once you have a baby of your own! I agree!
