Semi-protected edit request on 7 October 2017[edit]

This article says that

"She denied claims that her mother's pro-life views influenced her decision to give birth to and raise her son Tripp: 'It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision.'"

The word "deny" carries the connotation that there is some substance and validity to the allegation. In addition, the issue of legal abortion is equivalent to the issue of legal murder for a large, respectable group of people whose argument has solid secular philosophical grounds. This phraseology insinuates that giving birth and the abortion of a child are morally equivalent, neutral life decisions. It would be less biased to say something along the lines of:

"In response to the suggestion that it would have been more prudent to abort her child and that she only carried her child to term because of her mother's views on the issue she responded: 'It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision.'"

But I think this section of the article should be entirely removed out of respect for her, her family, her child who will eventually read that he ought to have been aborted, and for the religious and philosophical beliefs of the many decent people who think that the death of unborn children is not trivial.

Partly done: Changed sentence, but did not remove section because Wikipedia is not censored. SparklingPessimist Scream at me! 04:42, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

Discussion of including her own family in Lead[edit]

Considering that her first pregnancy received national attention during her mother's political campaign, that she later was an "abstinence" spokesperson, that she apologized to her followers for her second pregnancy while unmarried, yes, it seems her having children is more part of her public persona than it might be for some women. I think it could be the three could be mentioned in the Lead.Parkwells (talk) 22:04, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
