Purnell interviewed on "Newsline" after publishing "Enough With Our Horrible Media Boosting Women Who Publicly Regret Their Children's Existence." Here she wrote that, "It causes nothing but pain to children for parents to air their dirty diapers—er, laundry—to a national media audience." She lamented that these children may one day find the stories of their parents openly "complaining that they couldn’t get rid of that child."

“It’s no surprise that this is coming from the rabidly pro-abortion corporate media,” Purnell noted, “but it's disappointing none the less and it’s tragic to see them air these complaints about precious children whose lives were thankfully saved and whose lives deserve to be celebrated.” Purnell proceeded to note that the "real radical position" on abortion was supporting the idea that "women should be allowed to terminate the lives of their unborn children."
