By her own admission, she did kill someone. Chelsea, what you’re feeling is called “guilt” and “shame.”

Awww every one had a jaguar or Mercedes and she had a pinto. That's just awful./s All I had were a pair of tennis shoes to get me to school. Maybe I should have killed someone for that too./s

Ok now that I've vented. I think this woman is still grieving over the lose of her 20 year old child. I think that's why she blurted it out.

“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid."

Instead you are now 36, never been married, and have no kids.
Congratulations.

Self Hatred is like that IMHO

Abortion is an extreme of Self Hatred
Hatred of an extraordinary Gift!

Abortion Dishonors a Profound Gift
And Dishonors the Giver of the Gift

Her reaction is a predictable perversion of
“Love the Lord Thy God”
“Love Thy Neighbor Like Thyself”

She does have a point.

What she did is not right, moral, or healthy, but at least she understands being pregnant is not a joke or cute or worthy of a TV show.

"Teen Moms Make me Want to Kill Someone"

This "quote" is NOT what she said.

She said a show rewarding teen moms with wealth and fame makes her want to kill somebody, presumably the producers of the show.

I must admit I have some feelings along the same lines.

There are numerous stories around of teenage idiots intentionally getting knocked up so they can try out for this show. Presumably some large percentage of those who don't get on the show then abort their baby.

Life News is nearly as bad as WND. The quote in the title doesn't even match the actual quote.

Referring to MTV's show, "16 and Pregnant": Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you're a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody."

Please.

From the article "It appears Handler already has, as she continued, “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about it.”

There's nothing admirable about this woman, and her show is disgusting.

I don’t agree with her decision, but I do AGREE that the TV show Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant are horrible shows.

My kids watch them, they make me angry.

If you are not aware of them, look them up on google and watch ten minutes (I dare you.) You will want to kill the “Teen Moms” as well. It is unwatchable.

She actually said she did the right thing or else she would have a 20 year old daughter now.

Every vile and wicked thing social conservatives predicted and liberals all denied (accusing conservatives of being delusional) are summed up in little incidents like this one.

At the same time she broke the ice on the lie that all liberals tell, for now anyway, about their true feelings about unborn children. They have no value and are worthy of slaughter to cover someone else's sin.

The modern perverted view of reality embraced and preached by liberals is cruel, callous and dark. As dark as her heart.

Sure. They’re horrible shows, but at least the women/girls featured in them didn’t kill their babies, as Handler did. She is saying that she did the right thing by aborting her baby, and that these women/girls did the wrong thing. Do you understand that?

one of the worst features of Hollywood....it takes women with very severe mental issues (Chelsea Handler, Kathy Griffin, Lady GaGa) and elevates them to hero status.

Should she not be honest about it?

The interview does not move to the next, what I think is obvious questions: “Do you ever think about it, or regret it?”

Kids do stupid things at 16. I had friends at 16 who had abortions. Most of them regret the decision and worked very hard to make sure their kids did not find themselves in that position.

AND, the shows she is speaking of are horrible. Yes, the kids are alive and that is a positive. However, the people are complete, and utter idiots. The situations are painful to watch, and the parents are bigger idiots than the kids.

I tend to like Chelsea’s show. She is, lets say, not puritanical in her lifestyle. But there are funny moments. It is not for everybody. But that is why there are 125 channels.

And a person who would now be 20 never had a life. I wonder if that thought ever crossed her mind? It’s amazing to me when someone like this comes out with such shallow commentary. It would be one thing to have a serious conversation, but this is just.... I don’t know, but it’s childish and immature drivel.

That is exactly what she is NOT saying.

The way that I read this is that she is chastising the shows as glorifying being a teen mom. There are actually young girls who try to get pregnant to be on the show. It is horrible.

I think we will have to agree to disagree.

I cannot believe that I am defending Chelsea Handler....but here goes:

Without hearing the context of the interview, it sounds like her trying to make a joke.

Clearly a situation that I would not joke about, but sometimes “jokes” like that are defense mechanisms. Bad ones. And usually when you are trying to work the conversation away from a personal or sensitive point.

Her whole schtick is about being a 30-something woman, getting old, all that. In my mind I can hear her saying it in a way that would be a joke.

Personally, not funny. But again, she is on E! for a reason.

You don’t have to defend her, even if you like her show. :)
I was only responding to the one point she made, because I think those teen mom shows stink also. But to say that she made the right decision to have an abortion because otherwise she would have a 20 year old child now? I’m sorry, but that makes her a pretty shallow and selfish person. No, it doesn’t mean she would have a 20 year old child now, adoption was available even in the olden days 20 years ago. It only means a 20 year old would be alive today.
And if you think I’m speaking from a theoretical point of view, no, I’m not.
So, you can like her show, and still think she said something wrong/dumb/shallow/whatever. You can even pray for her. She sounds like someone who could use prayer.

Well that sums up her and her show. The only time I watched she proudly said she was a pothead. I didn’t watch long, definitely not worth losing brain cells for.

From the article:

"Handler told the Times, “Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”

It appears Handler already has, as she continued, “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about it.”

Yes, she's chastising the shows for glorifying them for being teen moms, because she thinks they should have gotten abortions as she did. Imho, she's jealous, because she thinks she should be glorified for aborting her baby.
