  • More Pro-kill propaganda:

    Addison kills a child who could have easily lived outside of the womb in just a few more weeks. After committing this atrocity, she and Naomi are coming out of the "surgery" area and Addison is more caught up in HER need to get Naomi back as her BFF than she is about the despicable thing she just did. Yup, it's all about "Addison"!

    They even mentioned in the show the the baby's head would be CRUSHED by the forceps and that the baby would FEEL every bit of this...then, proceeded to do it anyway.

    Even the most hard-core pro-choice viewer would be wincing, no?

    I'm seriously tired of the mainstream, liberal- agenda-driven media trying to desensitize people to things that are just plain wrong and cruel. If anyone gave a damn about this woman, they would have found her one of the many desperate couples who are desiring children and they would gladly have paid all her expenses in exchange for a legal adoption.

    YES, before anyone says it, I know that none of this really happened. My issue is the message the program is jamming down the throats of viewers.

    The nail in the coffin is this: The episode is titled, "God Bless the Child"

    Seriously? Exactly which God will be doing the blessing? Every time I turn around, Christians and their values are being bashed by these shows. The same Christians who represent over 80% of this entire country.

    The same Christians who keep the actors, production staff, and all the TV executives fat and rich.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: When Addison is telling everyone in the kitchen about her new patient who needs a partial birth abortion she never mentions her name. Yet during the conversation that follows, Naomi calls the patient "Patty". Addison never mentioned a name so Naomi wouldn't have known her name was Patty.

    • Goof: When Addison says to Patty that she's going to do an Ultrasound, there's a wide shot including the Ultrasound machine which already shows the Ultrasound scan even though it hasn't been performed yet.
