‘Goonies’ Star Martha Plimpton: My First Abortion ‘Was My Best One’

You might remember her as Corey Feldman’s secret crush in The Goonies, but now you’ll remember her as the actress who boasted that her first abortion was her “best one.”

The third time must no longer be a charm.

Back in June, during a #ShoutYourAbortion event in Seattle, actress Martha Plimpton (The Goonies, The Real O’Neals) interviewed former Planned Parenthood medical director Willie Parker — a black abortionist who calls himself a Christian and even referred to his line of work as “Godly” — about his recently released memoir.

Speaking before a sychophantic audience, Plimpton somehow shifted the conversation to speaking about not just her one, but several, abortions.

“Seattle has some particular significance for me for lots of reasons,” she started. “I’ve got a lot of family here, some of whom are here in the audience tonight. I also had my first abortion here at the Seattle Planned Parenthood.”

The crowd applauded this revelation before she went on to explain more.

“Notice I said ‘first.’ I said ‘first.’ And I don’t want Seattle — I don’t want you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one,” she joked.

“Heads and tails above the rest,” she continued on her abortion. “If I could Yelp review it, I totally would. And if that doctor’s here tonight, I don’t remember you at all, I was 19. I was 19, but I thank you nonetheless.”

​The Q&A heated up the discussion: an audience asked how to convince pro-lifers that abortion does not murder. Parker had this ridiculous response: “If you really believe that abortion is murder, call 911 and see if the police will come to an abortion clinic.”

That is about the stupidest deflection on the “abortion is murder” argument ever uttered. The whole point of the pro-life movement is to overturn an unjust law implemented by the Supreme Court, which in turn gives abortion clinics license to operate freely under the law.

“But the reality is, abortions aren’t bad, they are good,” he continued. “They’re health care. I’ve never killed a baby. I’ve ended pregnancies, but I’ve never killed a baby.”

Plimpton has been a major player in the pro-abortion movement (she has to satisfy that guilty conscience) for a very long time now, and serves on the board of A is For, a nonprofit seeking to normalize abortion. In 2016, she also modeled a dress printed with the word “abortion” multiple times on it .

Here is a little sample of her Twitter feeds:
