Things you can and cannot do on TV

I noticed something while watching Children of Earth. Apparently on Torchwood, the gritty, “adult” adjunct to the Whoniverse, we can show:
  • Bombings
  • Multiple deaths by gunshot
  • A skinless man screaming
  • Projectile vomiting aliens
  • The exploitation, torture and deaths of children

but we cannot use the word “abortion.”
