Markai Durham MTV 16 And Pregnant On Abortion

MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” has been no stranger to controversy, particularly after videos of fighting between Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley hit the net. Portwood was one of the stars on “Teen Mom” and her often erratic behavior on and off the show has led to much media scrutiny.

However, “16 and Pregnant” has taken controversy to a new level with its most recent season. One of the stars, Markai Durham, was faced with the decision of whether or not to have an abortion. This was shown on the most recent episode of “16 and Pregnant,” which aired at 11:30 pm on December 28. Due to the controversial nature of the show’s content, the show will air an hour and a half later than its normal time.

Durham eventually gave birth to a baby girl. Durham already has one child and said she had to weigh whether or not to go through with the pregnancy financially, as she was not sure she could support another child.

She has received a great amount of criticism and decided to defend her decision on facebook, leading to more controversy.

The MTV contingency of shows has also come under criticism, as this episode brings more attention to the show, which has been accused of glamorizing teen pregnancies.
