Greek: The Morning After Pill on Family TV

February 14, 2011 | Elizabeth

If you watch Greek on ABC Family, you probably watched the episode on Feb.7 that talked all about the Morning After Pill. ABC Family has been experimenting with alternative shows and issues like with their launch of The American Teenager a couple of years ago. This is the first episode of Greek that blatantly promoted birth control and specifically, the Morning After Pill.

When the main character realizes that she didn’t use birth control, she talks with the boy that she hooked up with about it. She expresses that it’s her problem, not his….and that she always feels like she has to be the parent where he can always be the kid. In the end of the episode, he shows her that he wants to accept more responsibility, but I think their conversation brings up an interesting point. Does the woman always have to be the parent in a relationship?

Does the woman always have to be the responsible one, worrying about everything?

She ends up going to get the Morning After Pill and after she informs the boy, they both are relieved.

What do you think of ABC Family promoting birth control, and the Morning After Pill on their shows? These shows are directed at middle schoolers, high schoolers and college students.
