Starz Drama: Sisters Bond Over Taking Abortion Pill, Not Telling Their Men

The May 25 episode of Vida titled “Episode 21” drives home the point of how cavalier and apathetic some pro-abortion women can be when it comes to terminating their unborn children. This episode on Starz even shows the two leading characters, sisters, bonding over the pills used to perform the abortion.

Older sister Emma Hernandez (Mishel Prada) decides to end the life of her unborn child. She goes to an abortion clinic and is shown downing the two pills used in the process – Mifepristone and Misoprostol – without using the instructions the nurse gives her. Instead of taking the Mifepristone first and taking the Misoprostol later, she pops them into her mouth one after the other as though the pills are common aspirin.

Nurse: The first pill is Mifepristone. That one you can take right away, and the second one is Misoprostol, and that one you have to wait after 24 hours, and the side effects are heavy bleeding, cramping, um, nausea, vomiting, and maybe dizziness.

Emma: Thank you.

Later that day, younger sister Lyn (Melissa Barrera) is looking through Emma’s closet to borrow something to wear and a casual conversation ensues about the abortion. Lyn is surprised to learn that Emma had already taken the pills because she looked as she normally does. Then Lyn mentions when she had an abortion in the same way – by pills – she was very sick for several days afterward.

Lyn: Then maybe you should, um, wait to take that pill until--until after I come back from Rudy's.

Emma: Oh, I already took it.

Lyn: What? This is you on the pill?

Emma: Yeah.

Lyn: Oh, my God. I'd be totally green by now if I were you. The one time I took it, I got so sick. I literally had to curl up in bed with caldo for two days, almost three.

Emma: Okay, well I have a rock for a stomach, so...

Lyn: Well, and just because I'd be a shitty sister if I didn't ask, you... for sure don't wanna tell Baco?

Emma: Why would I tell Baco?

Lyn: Yeah, I wouldn't, either.

So, we learn that Lyn has been though this and it is as though the two are doing some sisterly bonding over their reactions to the drugs. The conversation is so casual, it is ridiculous. The conversation is made worse when neither woman thinks the father of the child should be told, we assume because he is used by Emma for sex, not actually in a relationship with her.

Inconvenient pregnancies are eliminated in today’s scripts so casually it is mindboggling. There was no discussion between Emma and Lyn before she went to the clinic. It was a very new pregnancy, only revealed in the last episode that Emma thought she was pregnant. Apparently, she couldn’t end it soon enough to get on with her life.

By the end of the episode Emma was sick, vomiting and cramping. At least the writers didn’t just sweep it all away as though there are no physical side effects at all from such a barbaric act.

That baby isn't in your stomach and men cannot get pregnant.

Hollywoood is anti-science.

Truth in fiction - men be aware that catting around has possibly resulted in your children being killed and you are often never told. One of many good reasons to wait until married.

And yes your wife could do it too but in three years at a crisis pregnancy center I saw one married woman abort and her husband wanted her to. The married ones just don’t tend to do it, certainly not behind your back, very uncommon in my experience.

Unfortunately, for some wives that guy in the bed is not so much their partner as a supporting cast member.

So they tell us that men can be simply excluded once a pregnancy occurs. That isn’t a problem.

I guess that makes sense, since to them, a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.

So why would they expect to get any kind of support, never mind money support, from men.

I am giving you my actual experience in three years, experience in a crisis pregnancy center.

Every woman who aborted was single, save one.

If you don’t care whether your children live or die, then fornicate.

Societal rot. I am not shocked at anything anymore and I am starting to care less. It’s a shame but nobody can stop time and that part of society is a waste of mine.
