Teen Vogue Uses Snapchat to Teach Girls How to Get Abortions Without Their Parents’ Permission

From publishing a post-abortion gift guide to instructing a 16-year-old how to get an abortion without parental consent, Teen Vogue has run the gamut on glamorizing and championing the murder of the unborn.

Most recently, the popular teen magazine went to new lengths by publishing content on Snapchat repurposed from an earlier article entitled “How to Get an Abortion if You’re a Teen.”

In the article, advice columnist Nona Willis Aronowitz responds to a letter from a 16-year-old girl who wanted to have an abortion without her parents finding out. Aronowitz, who has zero credentials as a counselor, lawyer, or doctor, told the girl that there was no shame in getting pregnant as it’s a natural result of sex — and after all, “accidents happen.”

“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,” she misinformed readers, clearly confusing the difference between biological and mental maturity.

The columnist claimed that pro-life parents are merely hypocrites whose opinions on abortion change if their own daughter gets pregnant.

“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.”

Teen Vogue reiterated the disturbing points in Aronowitz’s piece via Snapchat on Saturday.

“Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs,” read one message in the Snapchat series. “Unfortunately, not every state legislature agrees so the first step is knowing your states’ rules when it comes to consent.”

The magazine then encouraged teens to tell their parents about their desire to have an abortion because “no matter what your parents’ abstract views are, they might behave far more tenderly when their own child needs access to abortion care.”

“In any case, you can also contact your local abortion fund if you need help paying for it on your own,” the publication added.

Pro-life advocate and YouTuber Laura Klassen called out Teen Vogue‘s alarming social media tactic on Facebook writing, “This is how Teen Vogue operates on Snapchat. Just so you know. This is what they’re telling your daughters.”

Her PSA alerting parents has since gone viral, but unfortunately for the wrong reasons.

Hundreds of people are singing praises for Teen Vogue in the comments, commending the magazine for keeping their daughters and other young women informed on such issues:

“Awesome! I think I’ll get my daughter a subscription to #teenvogue when she is old enough,” wrote Facebook user Christine Moore. “She’ll already have knowledge of her body by then… and how to prevent a pregnancy, and know she has my support no matter what she chooses.”

“It’s so wonderful that Teen Vogue is making this information available to young women who may need it,” added commenter Emily Farris. “And thank YOU for helping to spread this very important, necessary, detailed information to your very large platform.”

Sadly, this perspective on “women’s rights” is all too common and has infiltrated the minds of millions.

I pray we become a nation that opens our eyes to the heinous evil of abortion and the dangerous publications like Teen Vogue that candy-coat it and serve it up on a silver platter to our impressionable daughters.
