Fashion magazine Marie Claire wants to see more parents getting abortions on network television and in films.
Using the popular left-wing obsession of “representation,” the 84-year-old women’s publication ran an article on July 16 worrying that if more women who are already mothers don’t see characters like themselves killing their unborn children, they might not choose to do so as well.
Author Danielle Campoamor, who has also written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and Vanity Fair, promoted her piece on Twitter, saying, “Parents are the most common abortion patients. It’s time we see ourselves having abortions onscreen.”
In the story, she argues, “Countless studies have highlighted the importance of representation in the media, be it race, gender, relationships, body size and shape, mental health, or disability status. The same is true of abortion … But accurate depictions of the most common abortion patients, parents, is still severely lacking.”
Campoamor goes on to lament a drop in abortion depictions on TV,
