.@NatGeoChannel "Mars" just did a crazy abortion shame in S2E2. Amelie, a physician who was an original colonist, recognizes she is suffering psychologically after many years away from earth. She arranges to return on the next ship back, but she doesn't inform her lover Javier
until a few weeks before her scheduled departure. He doesn't take it well, & they separate. In a final predeparture physical examination, she discovers she is pregnant. She informs Javier, who indicates that he is happy to father a child. She tells him she is thinking of
terminating the pregnancy. He throws a tantrum, saying, "why r u asking me? U make all the decisions anyways." They both note that medical science hasn't determined if a human can conceive, carry and bear a healthy child in Mars's low gravity. She says, "But we do know that a
child born on Mars would never be able to live on earth because its skeleton & internal organs wouldn't develop to withstand earth's stronger gravity." Amelie decides not to return to earth. #abortionshaming @CitationsPod
