MTV has found success with Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, so now the net plans to air an abortion special.

No Easy Decision, which will broadcast Dec. 28 at 11:30 p.m. (as first reported by Entertainment Weekly), will chronicle former 16 and Pregnant subject Markai's decision process after she discovers she's pregnant again.

Dr. Drew Pinsky will also counsel the teens on the show.

MTV insiders told EW the special will also document birth control and the decision to undergo an abortion.

Some 27 percent of teens who end up with unplanned pregnancies chose to end them, according to EW.
