Lena Dunham Declares She Never Had An Abortion But Wishes She Did & People Are SO Done With Her!

By  | 

We’ve always applauded the 30-year-old’s strong pro-choice stance.

But in this hour-long episode, the New York native declared during the podcast that she actually wishes she had an abortion at some point in her life, exclaiming:

“Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

Now, if you’re wondering what on earth would inspire Miz Dunham to regret never undergoing such a traumatizing decision and subsequent medical procedure, she remembered a past trip to a Texas Planned Parenthood.

She recalled a girl had asked the actress to open up about her own experience with abortion, and Lena reflected on her reaction at the time, saying:

“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.”

Lena then recognized she was subconsciously enforcing the negative stigma surrounding the procedure, adding:

“And I realized then that even I was carrying within myself stigma around this issue. Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt that it was important that people know that I was unblemished in this department.”

While it’s good the celeb was able to be self-aware regarding her reaction, her controversial comment completely negated that.

And people on Twitter are GOING IN. Ch-ch-check out the reactions (below):
