Character on TV show attempts 'coat hanger' abortion

Not quite sure what to make of this, given the incredible plotlines "American Horror Story" is known for: A pregnant lesbian patient took matters into her own hands

From the piece:

This plot-line, in typical “AHS” fashion, cheekily and outlandishly (and gruesomely) ran roughshod over many of the more controversial aspects of the abortion debate: rape of the mother, health of the mother, legality vs. illegality, coat hangers. This “AHS” plotline may have ended with Lana still pregnant, but she’s essentially carrying Rosemary’s Baby. It’s unlikely she’s going to regret her attempt. I’ve never seen a show stack the cards so heavily in favor of abortion, no matter the outcome. Because of “AHS’s” feverish, crazy, surreal aesthetic, it gets away with political positions more grounded shows can’t, or won’t, attempt.
