  • A new year at Degrassi High begins, with everyone gossiping about what they did over the summer. Lucy got a camera, Arthur went to France...but the main story focuses on Erica, who had a sexual relationship and now must decide what to do...

    This episode of Degrassi High gives an all-inclusive view of teen pregnancy and the issue of abortion. Firstly, they tackle the issue of contraception, with Erica saying she used a condom 'mostly', well, there is a lesson for you. They also show young audiences that pregnacy tests can be inaccurate-Erica's is negative, her second one is positive. However, the real opinions come out in a class discussion (Mr Walfish's English class) about abortion. With Liz and Heather saying its wrong morally, Lucy giving the pro-choice arguement and Michele being scientific, we see all aspecs of the universal abortion debate. I am including parts one and two in my review, be noted that the actual class discussion happens in the second part.
