CHELSEA HANDLER’S ABORTIONS

Comedian Chelsea Handler isn’t joking about changing the stigma attached to abortions.

The 41-year-old recently opened up about having not one, but two at the age of 16.

In her essay for Playboy, Chelsea wrote,

 

“I was going through a very bad stage in my life. I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex.”

“I didn’t have just one abortion; I had two in the same year, impregnated by the same guy. I didn’t have the money the second time. I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion. Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision.”

“We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f*ck up twice at the age of 16. I’m grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family.”

 

She then reminds everyone that it is HER choice.

 

“I’d love for somebody to try to tell me what to do with my body. I dare them.”

 

Preach honey!
