The media watchdog arm of a prominent pro-family organization is taking a teen-oriented magazine to task for giving "life and death advice" to children.
According to Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms, Teen Vogue has always been liberal and extremely graphic – but she argues that over the last couple of years the magazine has unabashedly supported abortion by publishing dozens and dozens of articles on the topic. In fact, Newsbusters reports that in the first two months of 2017, the magazine published 63 articles promoting abortion.
Indeed, readers have seen articles with titles such as: "Abortion Can Be Funny" … "How You Can Fight Back Against Abortion Bans" … "These Are the Abortion Myths You Shouldn't Believe" … and "How to Get an Abortion If You Don't Want to Tell Your Parents." Cole addresses that last one.
"Teen Vogue has published an article that persuades teens and convinces them that abortion is completely normal, and persuades them to get the procedure done without parental consent," she shares. "OneMillionMoms is extremely concerned with the fact that they're giving life and death advice to their young readers."
Cole tells OneNewsNow that while Teen Vogue fails to tell the truth about the harms of abortion, it is also distorting the pro-life views of Christians and conservatives.
"We're just concerned not only for the baby's health and life but also for the mother's physical, mental, and spiritual health and well-being," she adds.
Cole says if the magazine's publishers really want to help young mothers, they should instead consider providing links to crisis pregnancy centers and adoption agencies. OneMillionMoms has launched an online petition encouraging Teen Vogue to do just that – and to stop encouraging children to seek an abortion without their parents' consent.
