The September 30 episode of the CBS show, “Cold Case,” featured sexually active Christian teens enrolled in an abstinence program. In the show, a trampy girl was stoned to death for breaking her chastity vow. To top it off, the Jerry Bruckheimer production depicted a minister preaching the virtues of abstinence while masturbating.
We have an idea for “Cold Case.” Do an episode on kids who reject abstinence and use condoms. But do an honest episode. Depict the way teens normally use condoms—which is to say improperly—and then show pictures of the aborted babies. It might also be worthwhile to show a Planned Parenthood counselor doing what they often do—covering up cases of statutory rape.
Bet Bruckheimer never thought of that one.
