MTV's 'No Easy Decision' Abortion Special Airs Tonight & Will Be Heartwrenching!

Tue, December 28, 2010 4:22pm EST by 12 Comments

Tonight, MTV will air its controversial special, documenting a former ’16 And Pregnant’ star terminating her pregnancy.

MTV is boldly doing what no other network has done: tackle abortion. The “stand-alone special” will air Dec. 28, at 11:30 pm and Entertainment Weekly writer Jennifer Armstrong previewed the episode, and describes it as “sensitive, unflinching, and brave.”

The episode follows Markai and James, you might recognize them from the second season of 16 and Pregnant, who allowed the world to watch the pregnancy of their daughter Za’Karia. But the episode tonight will have a much different feel than the happy and exciting birth of Za’Karia, this special will document Markai and James’ decision to end their second pregnancy.

According to Jennifer, you will watch everything from: “Markai’s tearful (and informative for viewers) call to the clinic to ask about abortion methods, to a post-procedure argument with James during which he refers to the unborn fetus as a ‘thing.'”

The show will also feature discussions by Dr. Drew Pinsky.

Join our live chat of the special tonight and check back for our opinionated review!

Nadia: Im’ so glad that you have a level headed approach to this issue. I to am pro-choice, not pro-abortion. I’m blessed to know, if I get pregnant, I cannot keep that baby, and have that option to not have the baby at all.

To all the pro lifers who commented on this…

Did you even watch the show? You obviously didn’t because you posted before it even aired. Did you see how upset she was to even have the abortion? did you not hear what she said about how NO ONE WANTS TO HAVE AN ABORTION? did you not hear her say it wasn’t easy? And lastly, James even said. God gives us freedom to chose, and what we do happens for a reason. You dont agree with abortion, dont have one. But shut the hell up when it comes to someone else’s body. You care so much about the babies then go adopt all the ones who dont have a mom.

She was upset? Boo-frickin’ hoo! Have you ever watched the tape of a live abortion? Maybe you should, then let us know you freakin’ feel sorry for. And God gives us freedom to kill? Yea he does, you have that right to break the commandment “Thou shall not kill” .

Barb, are you PRO DEATH PENALTY??
Murdering is okay as long as the cluster of cells had a chance to form as a fetus, be born an infant and grow up to do some sort of crime and wind up on death row?
Maybe you should stop watching videos of abortions and harrassing PRO CHOICE people and worry about your own life, opinions and self.
Good for you that you are familiar with the commandments… I’m sure you’re at the top of Heaven’s entrance list. Especially since you use the internet to voice your opinions and discourage others who do not share your views. What happened to turn the other cheek? And not throwing the first stone?
Do you pick and choose your morals?
Kudos to Nadia and Elizabeth for sharing THEIR OPINIONS.
Get over it, Barb. You’re not swaying any pro-choice people to believe in your views, just like pro-choice people cannot sway you to follow their views.
Everyone is allowed an opinion…especially to post on a website. Perhaps, Barb, a pro-choice person would not be welcome to discuss their views in your home…but you do not own the internet or this website. So RELAX.

just my opinion

God also gave these two the freedom to choose to have some self control and wait until they were READY to have babies before having sex in the first place…action=consequence.

What I find appallingly ridiculous, is that in this world a person who kills a Pregnant woman, will be charged with a DOUBLE murder…But say that woman was never killed, and decided to have an abortion, does SHE get charged with murder? noooo, you know, cause she had a right to have unprotected sex and get pregnant in the first place, even though she didn’t want a baby, so if she doesn’t want to get fat or be embarrassed or lose any freedom after the baby is born, she has every right to just get rid of it before that happens. Its her RIGHT. Pathetic. It almost makes me wish people had to be tested before they could breed.

Abortion is NEVER the answer? Really? So if a girl/woman is raped or is molested by her father/brother/uncle she should have to give birth to an unwanted child? If a girl/woman cannot afford to care for a child, or is not in any mental or physical state to care for a child, she should keep her pregnancy and have the baby suffer? If a girl/woman is a habitual drug user or an alcoholic, she should welcome a baby into the world?
I am in NO WAY saying abortion is a form of birth control. And it most definitely should not be used as a form of birth control. However, why should a female be forced to keep a pregnancy when the baby would be unwanted or not taken care of properly? And no – she is not MURDERING AN INFANT… she is terminating a CLUSTER OF CELLS.
Abortion is not an easy decision for many females.
I applaud you 3 (Barb, Sydney and Jess) for voicing your opinions and I’m sure there are many other people who share your views… but I am speaking out for those who are PRO-CHOICE.
Her uterus. Her choice.

Terminating a cluster of cells? Nice spin on that but sorry, try explaining to God on your judgement day you weren’t killing an unborn child, just terminating their cells.

Funny you mentioned GIRL getting raped, then Planned Parenthood provides an abortion, which is also covering up the crime of rape because then the man gets off scott-free and the girl has to deal with the rape and the abortion the rest of her life. I’m sure she’ll turn out just fine, don’t you think? I seriously think you’re missing a few brain cells.

God will judge me and you the same. You are coming off as a self righteous human …not a WOMAN because you don’t respect another woman’s opinions. I did not slam your opinions, I put a different view on a touchy topic. I’m missing a few brain cells? Hmm… didn’t know having a masters degree was attainable with missing brain cells. And again, Barb, you’re verbally attacking another female for sharing an opinion and becoming defensive of your views. We don’t have the same opinion…big deal. It’s not a sin to have an opinion that is different from yours. Just because you think you’re view is the best, does not mean that it is. Oh and as for the man getting off scot-free… not always true, having an abortion does not nullify any criminal behavior and does not bar the girl/woman from filing a police report.
I appreciate the 2 replies you left, Barb. Clearly someone having different views gets under your skin.
Perhaps you should allow other people to express opinions without criticism. You are not the voice of judgement and last I heard, it’s America and it’s also 2010…everyone has rights including the right to form and express an opinion.

Brave? Did you say brave? What the hell is brave about killing an innocent infant who can’t defend itself? This is beyond sickening and may God help us all.

ABORTION IS NOT THE ANSWER! it makes her non pregnant but it also makes her a mother of an unborn child!

Abortion is NEVER the answer.
To Sydney: No, it also makes you the mother of a DEAD child :(

To Barb: I so totally agree

I’m proud to be pro-life
