The show would have showcased rapper Shawty Lo’s relationships, which resulted in 11 children with 10 different women. Many pro-family groups – including several in the African American community – expressed disgust with the concept of the show.Star Parker remarked:

Matt Clinger pens a guest post on wife Kelly Clinger’sblog after watchingMSNBC’s Touré claim abortion “saved” him. A post-abortive father himself, Matt’s message is a must-read:
"If you are in a relationship that you KNOW isn’t going to work out, why continue to call it a committed relationship and stay in it?… Men, hear me. This is one of the root problems of abortion: disrespectful, childish men who couldn’t truthfully admit “I know we are not going to get married, but let’s have sex and possibly conceive a child that neither of us are ready for.”…
"Abortion will end when BOYS can become MEN who respect women enough to not have sex with them until they are in a REAL “committed” relationship… called MARRIAGE."Americans United for Life supports Missouri legislation introduced by Republican House Rep. John McCaherty, which would prohibit abortions due to sex selection and diagnosis of a disability. AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest writes:
"It is wrong to discriminate against unborn children, targeting them for either their sex or a perception of their abilities and potential. We can do better."Big Blue Wave notes that the Canadian press continues to spin the facts on abortion:
"Canadian Press reports that three MP’s are trying to get post-viability abortions investigated as homicides… without mentioning the fact that these babies were born live, as per their letter."
Fletcher Armstrong shares a video of Center for Bio-Ethical Reform executive director Gregg Cunningham’s pro-life presentation in a church, which included graphic abortion images.
