WORST SOCIAL ISSUE


ABORTION, DAYS OF OUR LIVES


So, like, Mimi didn't think Rex wanted kids, so she, like, had an abortion without telling him. And then Jan found out and like, blackmailed her. No, this isn't a description of an afterschool special, it was how DAYS chose to tackle a divisive topic that few shows even dare to approach. While on one hand we have to applaud the soap for having the guts to tell a story where a pregnancy is actually terminated, Mimi's reason for going through with it was incredibly weak. Wouldn't it have been more compelling if Rex and Mimi learned they were pregnant, made the painful decision together to terminate and then had to deal with the consequences of their actions? We think so. Instead, DAYS went for the camp, not the drama - and in the process, threw the baby out with the bath water.
