A controversial episode of Family Guy dealing with the topic of abortion that Fox Television has refused to air will be distributed on DVD in September as a stand-alone episode by corporate sibling Fox Home Video, the New York Times reported today (Tuesday). When it finally is released, the Times observed, “many Family Guy fans will get their first look at an unlikely reminder of the television networks’ aversion to the issue of abortion, and a rare boundary encountered by an often rebellious series.” In a statement, Fox declined to state why it had chosen not to air the episode. It added, however, that it supported “the producers’ right to make the episode and distribute it in whatever way they want.”
