Dunham: ‘I Haven’t Had an Abortion, But Wish I Had’

Hollywood loud-mouth Lena Dunham is really bummed out that she’s never had the opportunity to kill her own unborn child. On Thursday, the Girls creator lamented never having an abortion on the “Choice” episode of her “Women of the Hour” podcast: “I haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had,” she said, concluding the hour of abortion worship.

You see, without having an abortion (and bragging about it), Dunham is still one sacrament shy of being a Good Feminist. Poor Lena.

The Hillary Clinton sycophant first explained that there is actually no such thing as being pro-life per se, since pro-aborts are actually pro-life as well, minus the whole pro-murder of the unborn thing. Which makes perfect sense in Dunham’s head and precisely nowhere else.

“I’m a pro-choice woman,” said Dunham. “From an early age, she taught my younger sibling and me to say ‘anti-choice’ instead of ‘pro-life’ because she wanted to make sure that we knew that everyone is pro-life. Some people are anti-choice.”

The feminist also lamented the stigma attached to the life-ending “pro-life” choice, which can include jamming scissors into the skulls of unborn babies to kill them.

“Something I’ve thought about a lot is the fact that there is stigma around abortion,” she said. “We all know that there’s cultural stigma, it’s hard to put an abortion on network TV.”

Except for shows like “Scandal,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” “Jane the Virgin” and “You’re the Worst,” of course.

In an odd turn of events, Dunham even admitted that she too once instinctively knew that murdering the unborn was wrong, that is before she and her Good Feminist mother and friends talked her back into praising the sacrament.

“I always thought that I myself didn’t stigmatize abortion. I’m a – uh abortion rights activist, it’s a huge part of who I am,” she said. “…But one day, when I was visiting a Planned Parenthood in Texas a few years ago, a young girl walked up to me and asked me if I’d like to be a part of her project in which women share their stories of abortions. 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.

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

“So many people I love – my mother, my best friends – have had to have abortions for all kinds of reasons,” Dunham said. “I feel so proud of them for their bravery, for their self-knowledge, and it was a really important moment for me then to realize I had internalized some of what society was throwing at us and I had to put it in the garbage.”

You see, Dunham’s innate sense that murdering the innocent unborn is wrong was merely a manifestation of societal norms perpetuated by pro-life/ “anti-choice” misogynists. It was nothing more than that.

“Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had,” the Good Feminist in training concluded.
