Teen Mom 2's fifth season is already off to a dramatic start! Not only did the premiere reveal that Leah Messer's daughter has muscular dystrophy, we learned that Chelsea Houska's baby daddy is expecting another child, and that Jenelle Evans had an abortion. One acronym: OMG.
Jenelle became unexpectedly pregnant with her estranged husband Courtland Rogers's love child, and chose to terminate the pregnancy while he was incarcerated for heroin possession. She opted to take the abortion pill, and her decision to let MTV film her as she dealt with such a controversial procedure was truly brave.
However, many pro-life Teen Mom fans have expressed their disappointment with Jenelle's televised abortion, and one fan hit up Kailyn Lowry's Twitter to vent. After Kailyn mused about how great the premiere was, the fan in question tweeted "even the Jenelle abortions?? How do you stand by this crap? You're an amazing mother … it doesn't sicken you?"
Kailyn's response? "Everyone goes through different things," she explained. "I'm pro choice and I wasn't in Jenelle's shoes :/"
Kailyn has definitely opened herself up to criticism by stating her pro-choice views, but it looks like she's willing to deal with haters in exchange for defending Jenelle. Meanwhile, both Leah and Chelsea have stayed quiet about their co-star's controversial procedure, though judging from the chummy photos from Teen Mom 2's press day in New York, it looks like both these ladies get along with Jenelle despite a potential difference of opinion.
Do you agree with Jenelle's decision, or do you think she should have gone through with her pregnancy? Sound off below.
