Even when Hollywood acknowledges the humanity of the unborn (only in the context of the mother wanting it, of course), they still must get their digs in at pro-lifers and promote the pro-choice position. Such was the case on Thursday’s episode of Freeform’s grown-ish, (“Damn”) as student Nomi (Emily Arlook) shows up at college very obviously pregnant after being away for several months, leading her best friend Zoey (Yara Shahidi) to ask why she didn’t “uncomplicate the situation.” The show also pushed the untruth that a woman can’t have an abortion at five-months gestation because it’s “too late.”

Zoey: Right. And we fully support you, obviously. You're just choosing to take on such a huge responsibility at 20. Last semester, you couldn't even keep your aloe plant alive.
Jazz - Marks
Jazz: And now you're gonna need that for all those stretch marks.
Nomi: Alright, you guys, women our age have children all the time, okay? Solange did it, Kylie Jenner did it, and my personal hero, Whoopi Goldberg. I mean, she did it.
Zoey - Pause - Baby - Womb
Zoey: Pause. Baby in the womb.
One minute, it’s a “complicated situation” that should have been made “uncomplicated” through abortion. The next...
