Teen Vogue, a popular magazine amongst minors, recently published a column instructing a 16-year-old girl how to bypass state laws to receive an abortion.
According to Life Site News, the magazine, which often shares harmful advice to its young followers, published a column by Nona Willis Aronowitz in which she responded to a letter from a reader about obtaining an abortion.
In the letter, the reader asks Aronowitz how she can get an abortion without telling her pro-life parents.
Aronowitz responded that first, the girl should not be ashamed of her pregnancy because “accidents happen,” and it’s just a natural outcome of having sexual intercourse.
“It’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth,” Aronowitz said twisting different types of maturity.
“Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs,” she added, even though she acknowledged that this might be against the law in some states.
She added that if the teen did not live in a state that allowed her to get an abortion without parental consent, then she should consider telling her parents.
Aronowitz then added that maybe the teens parents would be open to it, because pro-life parents are often only pro-life when their own kid is not involved.
“One thing I’ve learned while researching and reporting on these issues is that supposedly anti-abortion Americans often get abortions,” she wrote.
“They often help their children procure abortions. You know those activists who stand outside clinics holding signs adorned with Bible verses and pictures of fetuses? Even they sometimes get abortions.”
If she thought that her parents would be angry, possibly reacting with violence or by kicking her out of their home then she should consider a “judicial bypass procedure,” which is “a legal option in 36 states that would let you get an abortion without parental approval.”
Aronowitz also provided a link to a pro-abortion legal advice group so that the teenager could contact them if she needed further help. She also added
She concluded her advice column by telling the 16-year-old that one in four women have an abortion, so it’s normal to do so.
Teen Vogue’s trail of bad advice
The advice coming from Teen Vogue is not a surprise, as they have been champions for abortion for a while now.
According to Newsbusters, in the first two months of 2017, Teen Vogue published 63 articles promoting abortion.
In 2018, the magazine published an op-ed in which they argued that abortion can be comical.
Lady Parts Justice League “shows just how brilliant of a pairing comedy and grassroots abortion activism can be,” claims Azor in the piece.
This past April, a Teen Vogue contributor argued that one can determine their own biology, “regardless of whether or not doctors agree.”
“This idea that the body is either male or female is totally wrong,” said one commentator.
Another one said: “We all have characteristics that are typically male and typically female and it is really about political choices, social factors, ideological choices, that we assign meaning to different parts of our body. So the meaning may be that they meant, most of us are taught that if you have a vagina, you’re a girl; or if you have a penis, you’re a boy.”
These topics should not come as a surprise, as Editor Elaine Welteroth has described the Teen Vogue audience as “woke” in the past.
“This is somebody who is sophisticated, conscious,” Welteroth said of her average reader. “We say ‘woke’ here. We’re a woke brand, and our readers are woke, too.”
