The creators of Bump+ would like to address several errant media reports. Headlines around the world have said Bump+ trivializes the issue of abortion. Fox News has suggested that Bump+ is an “abortion game show.” It is not. We take the stories of our characters and the choices that lie ahead of them seriously and would never trivialize those choices by putting them to an audience vote. To be clear: There is NO VOTING on our show.
Real life isn’t that simple.
Denise, Hailey and Katie (fictional characters portrayed by actors) will make their own decisions at the end of this series. The creative team behind Bump+ will shape those decisions based upon the advice offered by viewers in the form of STORIES submitted on this website.
We welcome the extraordinary and to our knowledge unprecedented outpouring of stories already offered by hundreds of viewers who have fully grasped how the show works. We don’t believe that anyone carefully observing the discussion unfolding here could call it trivial. It is the conversation we hoped to start. Thank you for participating in it and proving that it is in fact possible for us to reach across the distance between us with compassion and respect.
