Glen voice overs that he believes abortion is " a woman's choice," but then smarms that he knows "too many" girls who had abortions, and then regretted it, and a couple of them, he says, wanted to have kids, and now can't, because of the abortion. Okay, PSA #1: it is extremely rare for women to become infertile due to an abortion. PSA #2: if you think there are too many women becoming infertile due to abortions now, Glen, imagine how many became infertile -- or worse -- prior to Roe versus Wade, when abortions were illegal.
Back at the house, all the roommates sit down to dinner, and Aaron leads them in an extremely lengthy pre-dinner prayer. I find it really interesting that prior to this episode no mention had been made of Aaron's religious beliefs at all. I doubt he just suddenly found God, between the pool room and the kitchen, and find it highly convenient that B/M Productions chose to highlight his faith in this episode, when it could conceivably play a hand in some kind of conflict. But I'm sure that's totally coincidental.
Tami, in an interview, explains that finding out she was pregnant "was a big downer, because at this point in [her] life, [she's] not ready for kids." That comment honestly didn't sound as flip as it looks on paper; in fact, Tami seems more serious and collected in these interviews than she has up to this point in the series, period. She comments that she feels like she's still a kid, herself. She certainly acts like one.
In his interview, Jon twangs that Tami is "making a mistake," and she's "covering up a mistake with another mistake." Oooh, conflict! What a big, fat, shock. Not.
Back in the house, Jon lolls on the floor and tells Beth that he doesn't agree with Tami's decision to terminate her pregnancy, but she's obviously made up her mind, and his haranguing her about it day in and day out isn't going to help. Not like that ever stopped anyone before. Beth tells Jon that if she got pregnant "right now," she would get an abortion. I think it's safe to say that no one wants Beth to reproduce, ever.
In an interview, Beth crinkles her nose and says that she doesn't agree with people who use abortion "as a form of birth control." Beth says she knows girls who do it over and over and over again, and she totally doesn't agree with that at all, like ohmigod!
Back at her tête à tête with Jon, Beth explains that when she does have sex (Ew, oh, God, ew. I'm never going to get that mental image out of my brain), she practices safe sex (good for you, Beth. But, again, fucking ew). Jon tells Beth that if you "follow God's plan, you won't have sex until you get married," and you won't find yourself in "that kind of predicament." ["Confidential to Jon: some married women don't want to remain pregnant when they get pregnant, either." -- Wing Chun] I wonder if Jon thinks Tami should have kept her mouth shut about the "predicament" she's gotten herself into, and instead have fabricated a looooong visit to a fictional and distant relative, returning to Los Angeles months later, thin, and pale, and with a deep dark secret, who eighteen years later would be fated to confront her (along with Beth and Irene) in a well-appointed New York penthouse, demanding to know "which of you bitches is my mother?!" Oh, wait, that's the plot (sorta) of Lace. Never mind.
