It ought to be a great hit with the progressives. After all, this is part of their history.
A new online Game Show-Docudrama will allow viewers to vote for which cast member gets to have an abortion… Unreal. The show follows three actresses pretending to have unwanted pregnancies. Viewers decide who gets to have the abortion.
STACLU reported this from The Washington Post:
Think Jerry Springer meets Oprah meets “American Idol” meets Dr. Oz meets … America’s conscience. … The idea for the “show,” which launches Monday, was inspired, of all things, by Barack Obama’s commencement address at Notre Dame University last year. When the president said he wanted “to find ways to communicate about a workable solution to the problem of unintended pregnancies,” executive producer Dominic Iocco conceived “Bump.”
…Each of the three women ostensibly selected from a “pool” of 300 is pregnant under varying circumstances with which viewers are expected to relate. To be clear, no one is really pregnant. The actors are all young and white, despite the fact that blacks have abortions at five times the rate of whites. The doctor, however, is African American — a man who combines the reassuring manner of Marcus Welby with the ethereal wisdom of Bagger Vance.

Katie, who is married, is the most appealing by virtue of what seems to be a genuine moral conflict. “Once I make it, I can’t go back,” she says. Her dilemma is further complicated by the fact that her pregnancy is more recent than her husband’s departure for Iraq.
Denise is a ditzy child-woman who loves red candies and picks all the red Starbursts from the bowl at the doctor’s office. Already the mother of two, she is also a victim of domestic violence. A “whatever” kind of gal, she’s mostly interested in the financial help promised by the show.
Finally, the loathsome Hailey and her icky boyfriend, Jason, just want to get on the reality show. They’re the party crashers at the abortion clinic.
What a vile group of people.
