Popular publication Teen Vogue faced the wrath of social media users after it posted a Snapchat story instructing pregnant teenagers how to obtain abortions irrespective of their parents’ belief.

Teen Vogue’s Snapchat story was featured on the app’s Discovery page, which is a section for publishers and creators to put 24-hour-lasting snaps displaying news and pop culture content that may cost them around $50,000 a day, Daily Caller reported on Monday.

The story thread from Teen Vogue covered topics concerning abortion options for girls under 18, regardless of their parent’s beliefs and consent.

Around 92 per cent of US teenagers aged 12 to 17 use Snapchat, according to eMarketer.

“Disgusting! Parents, please know what your daughters are reading on Spanchat and Instagram, and talk with them about it,” a tweet read.
