I try not to rant too much on this little ol blog of mine but after reading this article I was appalled to say the least okay maybe horrified would be better description!

"First it was the Real World, then came the Jersey Shore. Now, a new pseudoreality show is hoping to make an impression – only this time the cameras are following three actresses pretending to have unwanted pregnancies, and whether or not they decide to get an abortion is up to the viewers.

The "Bump" was conceived after President Obama's commencement address at Note Dame University last year where he said he wanted "to find ways to communicate about a workable solution to the problem of unintended pregnancies," executive producer Dominic Iocco told The Washington Post.

The pilot was launched on the eve of the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, and starting Feb. 1 episodes will air twice a week on the show's Web site, and YouTube.

Creator's say the idea is to humanize the debate, according to the Post.

The three stars of the show are in different predicaments, including, one who is married but got pregnant after her husband's departure to Iraq, a victim of domestic violence and another who just wants to be on a TV show.

Comments are welcome, although they are closely monitored to ensure civility, Iocco told the Post."

REALLY?!?!?!?!? Has America really stooped this low?!? I am just horified that someone thought this show would be a good idea. Hello moral compass......where the heck are you?!?

I, personally, am against abortion due to my religious views. But whether you are for it or against it I really do not think that this so-called show is going to humanize the subject. How dare some male producers turn something so personal into a "game."

I am so utterly disgusted that I really don't have much more to say about this!

Have you watched it? You can watch it on their website.
It's not real at all. It's 100% fake...all actors.
I heard the news story and was really curious so I watched it. It was actually pretty good and a really interesting concept.

OH MY! I will have to say that I was sucked in by the train wreck they call Jersey Shore, I was just flabergasted that someone would act that ignorant. But I did watch it. As to Bump show I will not stoop that low, no thanks I think I'll pass, this is pushing it a little too far for.
