Teens wanting abortions now have access to information gathered just for them — from iconic adolescent mag Teen Vogue.
The outlet’s no stranger to directing young girls to clinics — in 2019, it ran the article “How to Get an Abortion if You’re a Teen.”
American culture once endorsed a message of “Listen to your parents;” that notion is long-gone:
It’s only logical that if teens are mature enough to become parents, they are mature enough to decide whether or not they want to give birth. Having access to abortion should be your right, regardless of your parents’ beliefs.
At the time, Teen Vogue noted 36 states allowed abortion without parental consent.
It also delivered the idea that near-everyone’s doing it:
Everybody loves someone who’s had an abortion. Including you.
But a lot has changed since 2019. As you know, the Supreme Court recently overturned Roe v. Wade, sending activists into the streets and one cosmic controller up in the air.

Teen Vogue is on the case; in a July 7th piece, it lets youngsters know what to think and do about abortion. It blames the court for “chaos” and makes clear that girls aren’t the only ones getting pregnant:
On Friday, June 24, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, ending the constitutional right to an abortion and creating chaos across the country as trigger bans began going into effect in some states, while other states hostile to abortion moved to ban it. For pregnant people in the seven current states that have near total abortion bans in effect, it’s a stressful and confusing situation.
The system is rigged against people with front holes:
For pregnant youth, that stress and confusion is compounded by a system designed to make accessing an abortion even more difficult for them.
Teen Vogue points out that “abortion is still legal in most states,” and it’s “legal…to travel to another state to have an abortion.”
The site sends young readers to an interactive abortion map. An updated list of sanctuary states is offered so they may evade their parents’ authority.
“Judicial bypass” is explained as the patriarchy is condemned:
Judicial bypass allows you to go directly before a judge and get approval from that judge to have an abortion, rather than having consent from your parents. Yes, it’s paternalistic and unfair that you literally have to get permission from someone else to choose what to do with your body, but it is an option for legal abortion.
Teen Vogue also gives advice on Medicaid and where to purchase “mediation abortion” online.
Bottom line: The outlet is dedicated to the furtherance of teen abortion.
It’s remarkable how much society has changed. Not so long ago, publications aimed at young people wouldn’t have encouraged girls toward sex, let alone abortion.
But Teen Vogue has been a true pioneer:

Are we soon headed for a revival of once-called “traditional” morality? It doesn’t appear likely. America has embraced all-new traditions.
Even so, not every area of the country is going the same way:
