Hollywood often works closely with abortion large Deliberate Parenthood, however a latest drama on Starz introduced again an outdated Deliberate Parenthood lie in a portrayal that may not jive with the model’s new, extra unapologetically pro-abortion tone.

Within the October 31 episode of Starz’s Hightown, “Recent as a Daisy,” viewers’ suspicions are confirmed that Renee Segna (Riley Voelkel) is pregnant with Detective Ray Abruzzo’s (James Badge Dale) child, not her fiancé’s, Frankie Cuevas (Amaury Nolasco), a drug kingpin who was lately launched from jail.

Renee decides she’s going to schedule an abortion upon being advised at her Deliberate Parenthood appointment {that a} fetal paternity check will likely be harmful for the “child.” Sure, we’re really presupposed to consider {that a} Deliberate Parenthood worker would use the phrase “child,” not dehumanizing language like “fetus,” “clump of cells,” or “product of conception.” Much more past perception, the abortion employee first presents prenatal care, solely mentions abortion as soon as prompted by Renee, and exhibits concern for the well-being of the child. Solely Hollywood might dream this fantasy up!

Physician: Sorry for the delay. Lab’s been backed up all day.

Renee: Okay. And?

Physician: And… …You are pregnant, about eight weeks.

Renee: Wow. Okay.

Physician: Is that this a shock?

Renee: Properly, it wasn’t precisely deliberate, that is for certain. 

Physician: Properly, okay. You’ve some selections to make. For those who plan to maintain the child, we are able to get you in right this moment, do a full prenatal workup, make sure that every thing’s okay.

Renee: And possibility two? 

Physician: For those who select to terminate, we are able to carry out the process as much as 20 weeks.

Renee: Is there any strategy to inform if the child is, um, white or Dominican?

Physician: Are you asking a couple of fetal paternity check?

Renee: Yeah.

Physician: Sure, you are able to do that, however not right here. It’s high-risk for the child. I would not suggest it until it was completely mandatory. Is it completely mandatory?

Renee: No. No, it isn’t. Fairly fucking certain who the daddy is. That is the issue. 

Physician: Anybody you possibly can speak to about this? 

Renee: I need not speak to anybody. We will go forward and schedule the abortion. 

Physician: All proper. Properly, you may get dressed and meet me within the entrance.

Whereas Deliberate Parenthood could declare to supply prenatal care, one thing they’ve listed on their web site and touted previously, an investigation in 2017 from Live Action discovered that this isn’t the case at most places. The service was ultimately scrubbed from many places that claimed to supply it. The variety of prenatal companies that Deliberate Parenthood presents has additionally dramatically decreased through the years, all whereas abortions elevated.

The nation’s primary killer of the unborn, Deliberate Parenthood has gotten extra overt in its abortion activism, even firing former President Leana Wen when she needed to place the concentrate on girls’s well being, so this inaccurate portrayal is definitely out of step with the abortion large itself. Present President Alexis McGill Johnson disavowed outdated Deliberate Parenthood mantras about abortion being only 3% of what they do by saying, “I feel after we say, ‘It’s a small a part of what we do,’ what we’re doing is definitely stigmatizing it.”

In a subsequent scene, Renee returns house, just for Frankie to enter their bed room quickly after and attempt to entice her into having intercourse with him. She’s evasive and turns him down, claiming she was on the fitness center, but additionally saying that she has “actually unhealthy cramps,” main us to consider she’s both simply had the abortion or is avoiding intimacy with him due to guilt over the upcoming process.

Both means, ultimately, Deliberate Parenthood will get its pound of flesh, which is all they care about, anyway.
