Fox unlikely to air abortion episode of 'Family Guy'

Abortion is a very serious issue. It is not an appropriate topic for an animated series that attracts young viewers.

News Corp. paid Seth MacFarlane the ultimate compliment when it made him Twentieth Century Fox TV's $100 million crown jewel. But the "Family Guy" creator wasn't exactly returning the favor at Comic-Con..

At the series' panel Saturday, MacFarlane continued his show's tradition of jibing its host studio and network.

MacFarlane revealed he's producing a controversial episode about abortion for the upcoming season. But he and others on the panel said that Fox was unlikely to air the episode.

"Twentieth Century Fox, as always, allowed us to produce the episode and then said, 'You know what? We're scared to f--king death of this,'" MacFarlane said.

The episode will probably be available on DVD, he added.

A Fox spokesperson said that no decision has yet been made on the matter.

When asked for further comment, MacFarlane emailed a statement: "Clearly my sarcasm doesn’t come across in print. I completely support whatever decision Fox makes. We were allowed to take a crack at this controversial story and that’s enough for me.”

They should avoid these kind of topics here as this is a kid show and it can create a false impression on them.Anime shows are for entertainment and these serious topics can demolish the image of family guy.
