Surprisingly a Netflix show contains a story-line that is pro-life. The media is overlooking this show’s brave stand, the way it shows how the couples are coping with the unexpected pregnancy is really amazing and courageous.
Ashton Kutcher is a part of the cast and executive producer of “The Ranch,” a show about Colt Bennett (Kutcher), the son of a Colorado rancher, who leaves his semi-pro football career to come back home to run the family business. The season three aired on Netflix on June 16, and the main subject of the first episode was the unexpected pregnancy.
When Bennett discovers that Heather is pregnant, he says to her that she will be an amazing mother and they as a family will be okay.
“I want you to know this kid will absolutely be my first priority,” Colt says to Heather after she tells him about the baby. “You, you’re going to be a great mom. And I’m going to be a great dad. And the three of us, we’ll make a great family.”
As he pulls out an engagement ring, Heater stops him and says that she is planning to have an abortion.
Of course, the liberals would applaud this girl’s decision to get an abortion, because Heather says, “I’m 23, Colt, I’m not ready to have a kid. I’ve seen how hard it’s been on my mom and Darlene to raise kids by themselves.”
But sadly for the liberals, Colt does not agree with her decision. And what happened next was a deep connection.
“No, I’m going to be there with you,” Colt said. “It’s not about what I want anymore, this isn’t about me, it’s about this kid, and we’re going to have to make sacrifices.”
Not wanting to be persuaded, Heather decides to keep her decision and have an abortion.
Kutcher gave a clue about this controversial matter in an interview with Parade magazine.
“None of these issues are cut-and-dried and simple,” Kutcher said. “If it were easy, people would just fix it! What this show gets to do is unpack these issues in a different way — and empower people to laugh while exploring them.”
Colt didn’t want to give up, so he said to Heather, “This is wrong. You can’t just take the easy way out.”
At one point, Colt and Heather went to the abortion clinic and he tried to be encouraging and offered his St. Christopher medal for protection and walk her paperwork up to the check-in desk.
At one moment, Heather had a change of heart.
“I can’t. I can’t do this. I thought it’s what I wanted but, now that I’m here and it’s all happening…”
So, they decided to leave the clinic and begin their life as a family. The most remarkable thing is that this story doesn’t only show the one side of the issue but it shows the conflicted side as well. In this story, the boyfriend and his girl, are facing their problems and fears together, and are making a joint decision about their mutual life and parenting.
The audience agrees that this story should be supported by both party lines, but the mainstream media is awfully quiet. IndieWire TV was the only one that wrote something about this story saying that Colt decision to respect Heather’s choice was an “admirable setup,” and Heather’s decision to keep the baby was a “cop-out.”
It’s not a surprise that liberals support shows like “Scandal,” “Jane the Virgin,” “Gilmore Girls,” and “You’re the Worst” that worship abortion.
