  • Erica is pregnant and is considering getting an abortion.


    "A New Start" is an excellent Degrassi Junior High episode. It's one of my favourite episodes and definitely makes into my Top 5 Degrassi High episodes. I love how Erica starts a class discussion about abortion. I love hearing everyone's opinion on abortion. I love how Spike is very chill and her perspective is that abortion is right if the person thinks it's right for them, and abortion is wrong if the person thinks it's wrong for them. I felt so bad for Erica when she had to walk through all those protesters. It was the hardest decision she ever had to make and she already felt terrible about it, and now the protesters makes her feel even worse. I love this episode because you get more than one perspective on abortion. I give this episode a 10/10.
