The going to the abortion clinic and backing out cliche also is so so stupid because it makes the decision to have an abortion in the first place to always be a hasty one that the woman didn't think through before they went to the clinic. That just isn't how it works for most women. In fact, it would be far more realistic for the writers to have Gabi think it through and discuss with Will and her friends (if she had any on the show), going to the clinic, and then being told to go home because the state has a mandatory waiting period before she can actually have the abortion she already decided to have.

Why is it that TPTB went out of their way to give us someone who has an opposing view on homosexuality in Nick, but they can't give us anyone who might actually be supportive of the idea that an abortion could be the right choice for Gabi? I am so sick of characters on this show acting like popping out babies is always the best thing for a woman and what she should want more than anything. Can't Sami at least recognize that being a young, single mother isn't the best thing, especially when not everyone has Grandma Caroline to babysit all the time?
I totally agree with this. It's so redundant how we see them go to an abortion clinic but they back out at the last minute. Sorry not realistic for it to always happen like that. They go to a clinic to get an abortion and they go through with it because they feel it's best for their personal situation. This entire abortion thing seems really silly in this story. Or like you are saying at least let people recognize that in some situations it may be the best option. Instead they make it seem as though it's not a feasible option.
