  • I don't see a network picking up a show with that premise and airing it for more than 1 episode-- and then, they are just doing it bc negative publicity is better than none at all.

  • Ridiculous idea... And I honestly don't see what the concept of the show has to do with Obama's comment, but whatever. People have very strong opinions about abortions, both on the pro-life and the pro-choice side of things. I really don't see what a show like this hopes to accomplish.

  • Thats enough to cause one to vomit

  • That would be staggeringly sick.

    What next? Let viewers decide vote on whether a jury convicts a criminal?? ... Let viewers decide what career a subjects children have to study for??

    Pregnancy and killing the baby are EXTREMELY personal cricumstances and decisions. Their importance cannot be over-emphasized ... like "important to the 10th power"

    How could someone even come up with such a twisted notion?
