On “Friday Night Lights,” a Brave and Honest Abortion Story

In The Washington Post, Gloria Feldt praises the television show “Friday Night Lights” for its portrayal of abortion as a viable and respectable option in the case of an unwanted pregnancy. Feldt describes the episode:”I feared that the series would treat her pregnancy like a plot point in a soap opera, but I was heartened to find something entirely different. The show has portrayed her options and her choice to have an abortion responsibly, sympathetically, and without histrionics.”
