WWYD on Abortion. Texas Style.

This is an amazing video that makes me want to get up and move to Texas. WWYD, a new show on ABC, puts people in odd and fabricated situations to see what they would do. In this episode, they sat a young couple at a restaurant and had the young man push his girlfriend to get an abortion pretty loudly. This is the second time they’ve done this. The first scene took place in New Jersey, and let’s just say that some of the folks around the couple seemed almost willing to grab some rusty utensils out of the kitchen to help with the abortion right there.

But this time, WWYD re-enacted the same scene in Texas with very very different results. I just have to ask—which response seems more loving? You’ve gotta’ watch this. (Hey, doesn’t Jen Fulwiler live in Texas? Maybe my five kids, my wife and I could hunker down on her couch for a few months until we find a place of our own. I’m sure she wouldn’t mind.)
