This is actually surprisingly unbiased for US media. Not to say it isn't! There's the requisite doctor going 'boo' and an unqualified opinion from a magazine editor, but hey, it's still a pretty interesting video!

Quoting MommyEmmy79:

That doc calling women "irresponsible" is an idiot.

Yup! & most people seem to agree with that--look at the poll on the non-vid article and see that "irresponsible" barely has any votes.
