New Anti-Abortion Reality TV Show Strives to Make Women Feel Really Shitty

Ooh, a new online reality TV show is premiering next month that follows "five women on their journey together to ... healing and self-forgiveness." But it's not a Real Housewives reunion; it's Surrender the Secret, which promises to shine "a bright light on the lies of abortion." The ten-episode series will premiere on KnockTV, a Christian internet television network, on January 22, 2013, the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

"Post-abortive women do need to talk about their choice," Live Action explains. "However, they don't need to be and shouldn't pretend to be proud of it...Telling women to be proud of something that they truly regret, something that deeply wounded them, only perpetuates their pain. Once again, their raw feelings of failure, like those they felt when they sought the abortion, are being brought to the surface."

So probably the healthy, Christian thing to do is try and make them feel horrible about their decision — and, hopefully, many other viewers. 1 out of 3 women in the U.S. have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old, so they have a lot of people to attempt to publicly shame.

In the above preview, one woman prepares to enter a bible study group for women who have had abortions. "I feel very vulnerable, I don't want to be judged," she says. "I want to just run back to my car and go home." We don't blame her.
