16 and Loved: Supporting Women Who've Had Abortions

Posted by: Steph Herold
Attention pro-choice feminists! Exhale, an after-abortion counseling hotline, is partnering with MTV to support the young women who courageously shared their abortion stories on MTV's 16 and Pregnant special airing tomorrow titled No Easy Decision.

From the campaign website:

16 & Loved is a campaign brought to you by Exhale to give our public support to the three young women who told their abortion story on the MTV special – “No Easy Decision” - created for the popular series “16 & Pregnant.” Markai and several other young women did their part to let others know: “you are not alone. I’ve been there too.” Now, it’s time to do our part. We need to make sure these brave young women feel our unconditional love and our support. 16 & Loved sends love and support to Markai and the others on the show, and, in the process, lets every young woman who has had an abortion know that she is not alone. She is loved.
There are a few things you can do to support the campaign:
You can also join the Women's Media Center Watch-In to send a message to MTV that we expect fair and balanced coverage of all pregnancy options and decisions on this show and all others.
