Unsurprisingly, from the woman who made up a rape charge and self-confessed to sexually assaulting her young sister, Lena Dunham has stepped into it again with the sick confession that she wishes she could have had an abortion.
In her latest podcast, Dunham rails about the “stigma” of abortion:
“I always thought that I myself didn’t stigmatize abortion. I’m a – uh abortion rights activist, it’s a huge part of who I am,” she prefaced. She then told the story of how she once tried to distance herself from abortion:
But one day, when I was visiting a Planned Parenthood in Texas a few years ago, a young girl walked up to me and asked me if I’d like to be a part of her project in which women share their stories of abortions. I sort of jumped. ‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion.
“And I realized then that even I was carrying within myself stigma around this issue,” Dunham continued. “Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department.”
To rid herself of this “stigma”,
Dunham concluded: “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”
Reaction was strong and pointed against Dunham’s sick comment:
