MTV's Teen Mom advertiser is covert pro-life advocate

As if the glorification of struggling teen mothers on MTV's Teen Moms wasn't disturbing enough, we now know how MTV guarantees a continued casting pool. Just ask their advertiser, PregnancyLine.org, whose ad promotes their site as a safe haven for young women facing the issues of unplanned teen pregnancy. You just go to the site, get redirected to Optionline.org, get a number to call, think you'll get some educated information about possible choices, leave a message for a mystery human, and then comes the help! Don't worry, girls — there's a women's clinic nearby that can help you. It'll be confidential, make you feel like you're not alone, and — oh yeah — remind you that if you take Plan B you're a baby murderer. But really, teen moms, don't worry. They're here to help. And you'll need it, because as Optionline.org helpfully points out, you will forever suffer the spiritual consequences of aborting your super-cute fetus.

Sadly, pretty much any organization that purports to help women who think they might be pregnant is a front for a pro-life group. Almost all of those "crisis pregnancy centers" littered across the U.S. exist to disseminate medical misinformation and propagate fear.

Yes, obviously teen abortion is a much better approach. Its healthy, and, dare I say it, fun!

The tone of this article is borderline-hilarious. Since when has Nerve become baby HuffPo?

@Lisa, "front for a pro-life group"...oh no! That's just like charity groups that are just a front for Christianity. The bastards! Anybody against abortion must be evil and out to get women.

Why can't everyone see that killing unborn life is just, well, the moral thing to do? What EW, S and JFX said.

Just because you wouldn't have an abortion, doesn't mean I can't evacuate my uterus of a clump of cells. Girls should know the truth instead of manipulated and fed fear tactics. We deserve a choice, an informed choice.
