Lena Dunham stirred up controversy during a recent episode of her podcast by saying she wishes shed had an abortion.
While hosting Women of the Hour, the Girls creator recalled a visit to a Texas Planned Parenthood years ago, during which a girl asked her to share her experience with abortion.
I sort of jumped. I havent 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 womens options, I myself had never had an abortion,recalled Dunham, 30.
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 womans right to choose, felt that it was important that people know that I was unblemished in this department.

pretty good writer, very bad politician
That broad is a walking-talking abortion already!
Ignore the ignorant.
She wanted attention.
Now she’s complaining that she got it.
Apparently this is what it takes.
It’s too bad her mother didn’t have one.
Maybe her mother does too.................
But,,,,,,,, does she wish she was aborted?
I would rather her mother have had an abortion than for her to have had one.
That would merely add to her mother’s sins; Laurie Simmons is a bad enough person as is.
What should have happened was Lena and her sister going to be adopted by normal parents instead of those perverts that begot them.
I saw this earlier today:
Lena Dunham apologizes for saying she wishes she’d had an abortion
She’s probably lieing but submitted to the pressure.
Who out there is actually a fan of this woman? Her humor is stupid, her outlook on things is all negative, she is over-sexed, her show was lame, at best.
Like Tina Fey and Amy Pohler, she is someone only a millennial would get.
I’m pretty sure she can get one at any time, she always looks pregnant.
...so does her mother
The time for saying asshole things in a clever way has ended.
the woman operates under the mistaken notion that people care what she thinks or what her body looks like. If she has any acting talent, why not keep her clothes and mouth zipped and just show everyone what she can do?
When they get around to putting pictures in the dictionary under “lost generation”, I suspect hers will be there. It’s kinda sad, really.
