Chelsea Handler reveals she had 2 abortions in the same year

Comedian, talk show host and author Chelsea Handler had two abortions in the same year at age 16, after becoming pregnant twice by the same boyfriend, she reveals in a new essay for Playboy celebrating abortion rights. “We all make mistakes all the time,” she writes. “I happened to (expletive) up twice at the age of 16.”

The  U.S. Supreme Court’s Monday ruling strikes down a Texas law curtailing who can perform abortions.

“Like millions of women, I can live my life without an unplanned child born out of an unhealthy relationship because of Roe v. Wade,” Handler wrote. “It’s infuriating to hear politicians make bogus promises about overturning this ruling that has protected us for more than 40 years. It’s infuriating to hear them pander to the Christian right with promises they have no chance of keeping. (By the way: Even if there is a God, I highly doubt he wants everybody to go through with their pregnancies.)”

Although she initially pondered keeping her child when she became pregnant as a teenager, even thinking at the time, “Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!” she has no regrets.

“I don’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby,” she wrote.

I use to really like Chelsea Handler but any more I would not spit on her if she were on fire.Some people absolutely have no shame and no morals... Abortions are killing babies. That makes you a muderer in my book.

Maybe she should keep her legs closed or try using birth control

Why did she not have birth control I guess she just wanted to have unprotected sex now she has to babies to ask forgiveness for

So because she was acting like a so it, couldn't keep her legs closed OR use birth control two INNOCENT BABIES were MURDERED..she is a disgusting human being imo. There are probably thousands upon thousands of couple who would give anything to have a baby and adoption would have been a much better option. But I am sure she didn't want to "ruin" her body

Well well it's like she's bragging about it so I will get her a cookie an mail it to her. Call it what you want but I say murder. An this crap it's my body is horse crap if you don't want a baby learn to tote a dime between you knees an don't bend over an don't ever drop it. There are people who wants kids an can't have them I am pretty sure there would have been a great home for them there is birth control out there an most is free at your local health dept. clinics

We really do not want to know that you aborted two babies. Did you ever hear about birth control?

Theresa Holbrook

If she didn't want an unplanned pregnancy, all she had to do was use birth control or have her tubes tied. Instead she disposed of 2 innocent babies who couldn't speak for themselves.

Then be an adult and DO WHAT IT TAKES to stop pregnancies and killing unborn babies. You are an idiot. Couldn't stop with killing one baby, you were too dumb to know how to keep from killing another.

I guess she's never heard of birth control...OR the morning after pill. Her choice. I get it, but what about the baby's choice? Sad they didn't get a say in the matter.\U0001f61e

Someone like her doesn't deserve children but no child deserves to be aborted. .sad day when she has to answer to a higher power.

So, why do get into so many unhealthy relationships. Does that give you the opportunity to murder babies?

Wow. I'm speechless and I have no respect for her blatant disregard for life. This is not something you brag about. And the fact that she doesn't have any regrets? Wow. I almost aborted my first child because I wasn't ready for kids. 8 years later, I'm glad I didn't.

I'm not against abortions it's your prerogative but I am against using it as a method of birth control!!.. So with that being said take the necessary precautions before and abortion won't be and option \U0001f610

I didn't need to know that. But that is sad. In this day and age? There are plenty of birth control alternatives so you don't have to get pregnant. I am pro choice, but not pro thoughtless. I sadly have known a few thoughtless women in my life. I don't get it. Just another example of "think before you act."
