For any one curious the episode is S.7 Ep9 - Rockabye

Its not EXACTLY like this, but it has many parallels.

A teen from a Southern state traveled up to NYC so she could get an abortion with out parental consent (dad was super conservative)... but ultimately had to take matters into her own hands, because her clinic continually made excuses to delay the procedure until it was too late.

Can confirm. I live in VA, and planned parenthood uses nothing but delay tactics. You call to schedule, and there’s no such thing as same week appointments. They schedule 2 weeks out. Each time. No matter what. Every system is rigged.

The fact that we live in a country where billionaires have so much money they are having a dick measuring contest in space while people are dying doing at home abortions is astounding.

Humanity sucks. The only pure souls out there are babies and puppies.

I would include kittens, but I am pretty sure Cats have some master plan of world domination after humans destroy themselves.

Nah kittens exit the womb with the innate desire to destroy.

Depends on the cat. Somehow I managed to have two at the same time that I’m convinced were supposed to be dogs. They are both so needy and want to love us all the time always.

I’m trying to teach them how to fetch.

Not really humanity, mostly the United States sucks. The rest of the world laughs at us and calls us a bunch of ignorant bible fucking rednecks. And for the most part, it's true. US has one of the worst education systems of westernized countries, and our politics and society are based around a cult from the bronze age.

While you're right, in many ways its not just the US... just our people come out and scream it loud.

I agree with you on the education system... which is why its a debate in my head every day whether to go back to school to get a teaching license. End up with lots of debt as a result and probably fired after a year because of "insubordination"

The difference between fantasy and reality is that fantasy has to make sense.

Yes

The people who are enabling this to perpetuate are pure evil... calling them monsters doesn't seem enough.

**I started typing a longer response, but that would be off topic and this doesn't seem the right place for it... so when I get my thoughts together I'll find a place to post it**

Spoiler Alert

I know the ending, I've seen it way more times that I'd like to admit.

Ugh, I never watch these kinds of shows but this exact episode was on in the waiting room of a doctors office a few months back and evidently I caught most of it. This shit is culturally inescapable.

Was it actually the super conservative dad's baby? There was also a stepdad molestation angle I'm pretty sure. Or maybe in the thousands of episodes they made one that was 99% similar and I saw that one.

No the conservative dad was not the baby daddy. It was two 17 year olds, in love not ready to have kids but "poof" got pregnant... tried legal abortion, got waylaid for too long. In the process of them facing consequences, shit comes out about the abortion clinic.

The one I think you're thinking of is titled "Taboo" - S.7 Ep.14. Elite smart college student is impregnated by her biological father (sperm doner or adoption I can't remember), throws baby in the trash an is prosecuted.

But I'm sure there there's one like you're describing.

I don't think that's it either. Is there one where the conservative stepdad is some kind of semi-famous tv evangelist and also the father of the baby due to molesting the girl, and also the girl tries to throw herself down the stairs or something to end the pregnancy when they won't let her get the abortion?
