Mackenzie Douthit Blasts Doctors For Recommending She Have An Abortion!
We fell in love with Mackenzie Douthit during her short yet memorable stint on 16 and Pregnant, and we can't wait to see what kind of hijinks she and baby Gannon get up to during Teen Mom 3! This southern belle is sweet, charming, and non-stop fun, but she isn't afraid to talk about real issues.
Mackenzie has Type 1 diabetes, and during the 16 and Pregnant Reunion Special, she told Dr. Drew that if she were to get pregnant again, it could be extremely dangerous due to her condition. Apparently, Mackenzie's first pregnancy was also high risk – in fact, her doctor encouraged her to get an abortion!
"When I was 2 months preg. diabetic doctor told me to abort the baby cause there is a big chance I and/or the baby would die," Mackenzie tweeted on September 14th. "Look at us now ;)"
Mackenzie is clearly pro-life, but politics aside we're so happy she and Gannon are healthy and happy! We can't imagine how different Mackenzie's life would be if she hadn't gone through with her pregnancy, but one thing's for sure – we wouldn't be watching her pretty face on TV!
Do you think Mackenzie should have gone through with an abortion in order to protect her own health? Weigh in below!
