Catelynn Lowell's anti-abortion post causes outrage among fans (PHOTO)
Recently married Catelynn Lowell created an uproar on her Instagram account on Wednesday after sharing her controversial views on anti-abortion.
Taking to social media, the Teen Mom star — who made the decision to give her and Tyler Baltierra's first daughter, Carly, up for adoption — posted a picture of a smiling little girl along with the words "adopting a child should not cost more than aborting one."
Lowell captioned the post with, "Absolutely agree! #sorrynotsorry." And a lot of fans are taking issue with her views, slamming her for being "hypocritical" and an armchair activist.
"If you're so against it then go to planned parenthood and sit there and talk to those women on the verge of having a termination. Go help them, give them the security and support they need. But don't sit your ass on you comfy couch and post things that will cause controversy with you 1 mil [sic] followers. @catelynnmtv go stand up and do something positive about it. Not bash woman [sic] who are caught between a rock and a hard place. You should know better. We ARE WOMEN.#supporteachother," one fan wrote.
Many other fans agreed, with comments including, "Sitting on that high horses @catelynnmtv," and "Easy for you to say when you were paid to get pregnant as a teen. Others may had not been so lucky."
Another fan slammed Lowell for her views, saying what she really should be preaching about is birth control.
"How about being smart and not getting pregnant in the first place. Shouldn't you be preaching that? You don't have to agree with abortions, and some people don't agree with adoption. How about just not getting pregnant in the first place. It's the easiest, and cheapest, out of the other options. Im sure it hurt you when you would see anti-adoption posts. They don't know your story and you don't know theirs. So this is very hypocritical. I have followed your story from the beginning because it touched me... Now I see how closed minded you are and will not be following your story anymore. Good luck to you and your family," the upset fan wrote.
Yes, Lowell is entitled to her own opinion, but the issue fans have is not that she has an opinion they disagree with, it's that she's a public figure and they feel she should be supporting all women's rights.
