Abortion portrayal

Insecure (television)


While discussing Tiffany's pregnancy and Kelli becoming the Godmother, Kelli mistakenly assumes that she would have to care for the child should Tiffany die. Issa explains that is not what would happen; Derek, the father, would care for the child. Kelli replies, "Is that how it works? I hope so because if I wanted a kid I would have kept the last one."
