One of today’s most divisive and emotional issues, the abortion pill is the focus of a popular online drama “Red Elephants Café” – a topic made all the more urgent by the Food and Drug Administration’s recent attempts to make the “morning-after” abortion pill available to girls of any age – over the counter and without a prescription.
The “Red Elephants Café” story line revolves around liberal city manager Vel and her relationship with Britney Miller, her 16-year-old niece. Because Vel is “liberated” and Britney’s parents are not, Britney turns to Vel for advice about her unplanned pregnancy.
In the latest episode, Britney, in desperation, has gone to Planned Parenthood and been referred to an abortion doctor who instructed her to take the RU-486 abortion pill.
Now home in bed, bleeding, vomiting and in pain, Britney tells Vel that she’s supposed to go back to the doctor the next day for a follow-up abortion pill to complete the process. But, sobbing, she tells Vel, “I can’t do this.”
To which Vel replies, worriedly: “Britney, I don’t think this is reversible.”
New episodes of “Red Elephants Café” are posted on WND on Tuesdays.
