A recent panel held at the popular ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas, featured a bizarre and disturbing lineup of extreme leftist TV producers who are actually pushing for primetime television, watched by millions of American families, to feature more murder of unborn babies.
Rina Mimoun (“Everwood”) and Mauricio Mota (“East Los High”) were among those who spoke during the “Her Body, Her Choice” panel, put on by the University of Southern California’s (USC) Hollywood Health & Society organization, bemoaning what they believe are too few abortions being depicted on mainstream television.
Mimoun, who has written for a number of primetime TV shows, including many geared towards teenagers, actually claimed that the “lack” of abortions depicted on television today is indicative of society’s continued attempt at “controlling women.” Mota, a man, also agreed with this sentiment.
“It’s very important to talk about abortion, but it’s important to talk about the systemic things related to abortion,” Mota stated, agreeing with sentiments by Mimoun that abortion needs to be treated more “casually” on TV, like an everyday thing, in order to continue normalizing it in the minds of the next generation.
“It would be nice if it was just part of the conversation and didn’t have to be so special and so earnest and so important,” she stated.
The two producers had nothing but good things to say for shows like “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Scandal,” and “Friday Night Lights,” all of which they described as embodying a “gold standard” for the type of abortion depictions that they would like to see more of on primetime TV. They especially liked how “Scandal” featured its main character, Olivia Pope, aborting her unborn child while “Silent Night” played in the background.
The more unborn baby murder on TV the better, insist liberal television producers claiming to represent “women’s rights”
But there still isn’t enough baby murder on TV, was the panel’s consensus. And even when abortion is depicted, it’s simply not aggressive enough in making the procedure appear completely normal and even good for women, as if it was no different than simply grabbing a cup of coffee at Starbucks or going grocery shopping.
“If that was a woman’s show, would that scene on the floor of the hotel room have been different? Maybe,” whined Mimoun about an episode of the popular NBC series “This Is Us,” in which there was a “bizarrely missed opportunity,” to quote Mimoun’s own words, for the writers to add a conversation between two of the main characters concerning abortion.
To Mimoun, abortion is just another day in the life of an American woman, and thus needs to be portrayed as such, and as often as possible, on primetime TV. Anything less represents “society’s search to control women,” according to Mota, who even as a man agrees that murdering unborn children is perfectly normal and should be celebrated.
“Everyone is so afraid to be earnest or afraid to be like preachy or teach-y. There are so many things and they’d rather be salacious,” stated Mimoun. “They’re trying to shock you into watching their shows and there aren’t as many people that are [embracing] the challenge of educating. It’s an opportunity that we have.”
“It’s an amazing chance and every time you waste it or you blow it or you go in the other direction and message them terribly for no reason except that you want the ratings, shame on you is what I say.”
In Mimoun’s view, the only way to accomplish what she wants to see more of on TV is to hire more female writers and fire all of the male ones.
