Starting with its attention-grabbing title, this controversial MTV series has been a lightning rod for debate. And while it’s been criticized for glamorizing teen pregnancy, in truth you can’t watch it without seeing what a predicament these girls are in. The show, which became an instant hit when it debuted in 2009, has already made some of its subjects into tabloid stars. But the most riveting episode so far is about one of the lesser-known girls, Lori Wickelhaus. Her parents talk her into an open adoption and she’s conflicted but finally agrees. In this scene from last year’s Season 2, we see Lori in the hospital just after the birth of her son as she and Cory, the father of the baby, argue over the adoption. Lori sobs as Cory questions her decision and then takes the baby from her to kiss him goodbye. Later in the episode we see the adoption ceremony, in which a more composed Lori, who was adopted herself, hands the child over to his new parents while her parents look on weeping. (Just try to watch it without getting at least a little teary.) And while we won’t see Lori on MTV’s spin-off show, Teen Mom, she has told People magazine that she sees her son frequently and doesn’t regret her choice.
