Chelsea Handler Fighting Abortion Shame By Telling Her Story


ALTHOUGH ONE
IN THREE WOMEN IN THE UNITED STATES GET ONE ABORTION BY THE
TIME THEY ARE 45 YEARS OLD, NOT MANY WOMEN TALK ABOUT IT.
RECENTLY CHELSEA HANDLER WROTE ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE GETTING TO
ABORTIONS AT THE AGE OF 16 IN PLAYBOY MAGAZINE. PART OF THE
REASON WHY SHE DID THIS IS BECAUSE ABORTION AND
REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS IN GENERAL HAVE BEEN A HOT BUTTON ISSUE,
ESPECIALLY AFTER THE SUPREME COURT’S RULING ON TEXAS’
RESTRICTIVE ABORTION LAW. I LOVE THAT SHE SHARED HER STORY AND I THINK IT EMBOLDENS OTHER WOMEN
TO NOT FEEL SHAME ABOUT IT. SO, SHE DID WHAT A LOT OF 16-YEAR-OLDS DO. SHE GOT
INVOLVED WITH A GUY THAT WAS BAD NEWS, SHE HAD UNPROTECTED SEX,
AND SHE GOT PREGNANT. SHE HAD THE ABILITY TO MAKE A CHOICE.
ULTIMATELY SHE DECIDED SHE IS NOT READY TO HAVE A BABY. THEN
SHE GOT PREGNANT AGAIN IN THE SAME YEAR. IT TAKES A LOT OF
COURAGE TO ADMIT THAT.>>PEOPLE ARE GOING TO CALL YOU
MORE IRRESPONSIBLE AND JUDGE YOU MORE. LOOK, I WAS LUCKY BECAUSE
I WASN’T GETTING LAID AT 16, SO I DIDN’T RUN INTO THIS ISSUE.
BUT I DID PLENTY OF STUPID THINGS BECAUSE I WAS 16. SHE WAS
A YOUNG TEENAGER HAVING FUN. AND YES, SHE WAS IRRESPONSIBLE LIKE A LOT OF US. I DIDN’T MOW THE
LAWN, SHE GOT PREGNANT. I KNOW IT’S A LITTLE DIFFERENT. WHAT
WOULD YOU HAVE DONE? I DON’T KNOW. I KNOW WHAT CONSERVATIVES
DO, THEY WILL GO GET THAT ABORTION. THERE WAS A STORY TOLD
ONCE ABOUT A WOMAN WHO WAS A PICKETER, GOTTEN ABORTION
INSIDE, AND WENT OUTSIDE AND PICKETED AGAIN.>>WHAT ABOUT THAT GUY ñ
THE CONGRESSMAN FROM TENNESSEE?>>YES, HE SAID HIS WIFE AND
MISTRESS NEEDED THOSE ABORTIONS. HE COULDN’T AFFORD THOSE KIDS.>>OH, IT WAS OKAY BECAUSE IT
WAS INCONVENIENT FOR YOU TO HAVE A KID. I WANT TO FOCUS ON THE
FACT THAT SHE HAD TO PAY. ONE OF THE PIECES THAT YOU DON’T GET
FROM CONSERVATIVES IS THAT YOUR TAXPAYER MONEY IS GOING TOWARDS THESE ABORTIONS.
NO, THEY ARE NOT. PLANNED PARENTHOOD GET AUDITED,
AND THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEND ANY TAXPAYER MONEY
ON ABORTIONS. THAT IS ILLEGAL.>>I WANT TO FOCUS ON THE SAFE
PART. SHE LIKELY WOULD’VE HAD THOSE ABORTIONS ANYWAY EVEN IF IT WAS ILLEGAL. PEOPLE GET BACK
ALLEY ABORTIONS. AND A LOT OF TIMES THEY WOULD DIE. BY THE
WAY, THAT DOESN’T HELP ANYONE, THE KID DIES AS WELL. IT DOESN’T
HELP ANYBODY, AND INSTEAD CHELSEA HANDLER SURVIVED, HAD A GOOD CAREER. I’M SURE SHE IS
HAPPY THAT SHE HAS CONTRIBUTED ñ WITH THE SAME THING HAVE
HAPPENED IF SHE HAD DECIDED TO HAVE KIDS? I DON’T CARE, IT WAS
NOT MY DECISION. IT WAS HER DECISION. I AM NOT GOING TO BUTT
INTO HER LIFE OVER IT. I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT AN AMAZING FACT I
FOUND THIS OUT ABOUT THE STORY. IT GOES TO HOW PREVALENT ABORTION IS. ONE IN THREE WOMEN
IN THE UNITED STATES WILL HAVE AN ABORTION BEFORE THE AGE OF
45.>>THAT WAS AT THE VERY
BEGINNING OF THE STORY.>>THAT’S AMAZING. I BET YOU IF
YOU ASK PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY CONSERVATIVES, WHAT PERCENTAGE OF WOMAN GET ABORTIONS ñ IN
THEIR MIND THEY THINK THOSE ARE THE REALLY PROMISCUOUS ONES AND
IT DOESN’T HAPPEN TO REAL WOMEN. MY GUESS IS THEY WOULD THINK IT WAS A MUCH LOWER NUMBER, THE
REALITY IS THAT IT IS A GIGANTIC NUMBER BUT YET IT IS ALL IN THE
CLOSET. THERE ARE CRAZIES THAT SHAME YOU, AND SOMETIMES PUT YOU
IN DANGER BECAUSE OF IT. IT TAKES A LOT OF COURAGE FOR
CHELSEA HANDLER TO COME OUT AND SAY THIS. I LOVE HER FOR THAT. I
FEEL THAT WAS A GREAT CHOICE TO MAKE, IN TERMS OF COMING OUT AND
TALKING ABOUT THIS. IN TERMS OF HER ABORTION, IT IS NOT MY BODY
OR YOUR BODY, IT IS NOT YOUR BUSINESS, IT IS HER BUSINESS.

  1. I don't know how accurate that 1 in 3 statistic actually is.  I am Pro-Choice 100%, but that stat does not seem right to me.  Did they poll 10,000 women across the country in different areas and socio-economical conditions and 1 in 3 actually had abortions.  Or are they simply taking the total number of abortions performed every year over a period of time and comparing that to the number of women living in the America.  I would be interested to learn the math and science behind that statistic.

  2. Abortion is not a great thing, you dont have to shame people for doing it neither should you lionize people who get abortions.

  3. Unlike an unwanted pregnancy, some STDs cannot be resolved through medical treatment. The lesson here kids is that you should always use protection. The more you know.

  4. Dude simple maths I love your channel but no 25% as a mean of the population does not represent the audience you're referring to. That's simple truth. Don't be disingenuous and leave yourselves open to attack.

  5. Old news. She talked about this on Conan O'Brien in 2012. She laughed about having the abortion. Wtf. Tyt are on their way to hell with her

  6. Pro choice all day. If you want a abortion then get one. If you want to rasie a child then have a baby. Either way women should have the choice.

  7. Not the biggest fan of abortion, I am pro choice what a woman does with her body is her decision. I mean there are enough unwanted children in the here and now and if those anti abortion turds want something to advocate for they should start there with people who are here already and are not given enough care. Anyway I admire how Chelse live her life and refuses to be ashamed, I love her for that. I need her to be my mentor.

  8. This is what happens in a society that keeps youth (and parents/adults) ignorant about sex, and yet sexuality is posted on every social medium possible and is just simply a fact of life and coming of age. The Pro lifers do nothing to educate girls OR boys about sex and teen pregnancy remains epidemic. Pro lifers need to get on the birth control program – pregnancy prevention should be at the TOP of their list. Pro lifers and their abstinence without pregnancy prevention is absurd.

  9. Let's load up this video with a bunch of self-righteous comments about baby killing and feminazi rights!

  10. Chesea Handler doesn't sound like she's any smarter now than when she was 16. Her shame is as unnecessary as her stupidity at 16. If she wants to do something positive to relieve her "guilt" she should be promoting sex education, safe sex and pregnancy prevention with teens. Whining about her ignorant, irresponsible child sex is pointless.

  11. So she had unprotected sex and got pregnant twice and had both babies murdered… Wow what a strong woman!!!!! not…

  12. I think it should be safe, it should be legal but I wish it wasn't as prevalent as it is, that 1 in 3 is way higher than I would have thought it would be.

  13. Firstly You Young Tucks Are Getting More And More Ridicules As The Days Go By, I Don't Give A Shit Weather She Had An Abortion Or Not How You Flipped It On The Guy As If He Forced Her To Have Sex Is The Stupidest Thing I Heard Yet Instead Of It Being Two Irresponsible Young People Having Sex Before They Where Prepared For The Consequences Of It , Is Just A Way To Take The Focus's Off The Fact That She Was A Little Slutty And I Don't Even Care About Her Whoreish Ways I Was A Little Whoreish But To Insinuate That Getting Pregnant Right Behind The First Time At Sixteen Wasn't Irresponsible Sends Out A Terrible Message To A A Kid That Need To Focus On Growing Up Not In Raising Another Irresponsible Person……

  14. Schools should teach young students the science and art of oral sex. This would cut down on unwanted pregnancies. Maybe Bristol and Sarah Palin can make an instructional video.

  15. THE ONLY WAY TO REDUCE ABORTIONS IS TO EXPAND ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTIVES TO "ALL WOMEN" YOUNG & OLDER POOR & NOT. FOLLOWED BY SEX EDUCATION FOR YOUNG MEN & WOMEN!

  16. They should've aborted these two , justifying the killing of a human to ease the pain of another is crazy.

  17. I'm sorry, but I can't applaud a woman who knows she doesn't want children, yet still chooses to have unprotected sex. There's plenty of contraceptives available, there are no excuses

  18. She got pregnant twice most likely because america dont like to educate or discuss about sex health and take the classes away.

  19. I'm glad she was brave enough to share her story. It's our bodies and while it certainly is no easy decision in any way to go forward with an abortion, we shouldn't feel ashamed by anyone for being able to have that choice and feeling like it was the right one. It's easier for people to judge when they have never gone through that situation. Thank you for being vocal about the subject Chelsea Handler.

  20. Let's get this straight.
    A woman has NO obligation to complete a pregnancy. The SCOTUS has determined that a woman has a right to an abortion without undue burden. That's the law if not a morally just perspective. If a woman feels shame, guilt or regret, she needs support or therapy on living a full and self-directed life.

    If you think you can force an unwanted pregnancy on a woman then you are morally no better than a rapist after-the-fact.

    If you ruthlessly smear a woman by calling her a "baby killer", and if you or any one you know has ever used birth control, then you also are "baby killers" by your own definition. Go call your friends and family using birth control "baby killers" and see how long it takes them to send you packing (or laugh or spit in your face).

    Have a nice day, slave-birthers.

  21. Chelsea Handler is NOT the spokesperson for abortion rights. This moron works for Playboy Magazine, the premiere sexist magazine of the USA. It's laughable that she is noted for anything she says about women's rights. And what she apparently says here is a step backward for women's post abortion feelings. She's allowed herself to be shamed by the forced-birthers.

  22. everyone who has a problem with abortion is not very smart and cant think out of their own perspective

  23. Protecting ur body against unwanted pregnancy and or stds should be the number one choice all people should make, even teenagers. I feel that's a message pro choice people should also preach about in my opinion so others can avoid these kind of situations.

  24. Protecting ur body against unwanted pregnancy and or stds should be the number one choice all people should make, even teenagers. I feel that's a message pro choice people should also preach about in my opinion so others can avoid these kind of situations.

  25. Ana, you need to find a better victim/spokesperson on abortion shaming than a Playboy executive. I mean really, a woman working for America's premiere sexist magazine. At least, maybe a Glamour magazine douche bag would be better. Handler needed a dose of "get off your pathetic ass and stand up for the right to control your own body", dipshit.

  26. Now look, it's one thing for her to have gotten an abortion after her first pregnancy. It was a mistake. I get it. Fair enough for the "pro-choicers". But to then in the same year get pregnant from the same guy? Didn't she learn anything? Remember, the whole abortion issue is still an extremely sensitive one, whichever side of the fence you are on, and here this Chelsea Handler is frivolously treating abortion like she's just popping a headache tablet for a hangover after a night of having a few drinks too many. Dust off hands. Problem solved. No accountability whatsoever. And here these two on the TYT panel are applauding her for it? Damn…

  27. The anti-abortion people are in many cases also the people that are for "abstinence only" education, so they are cultivating a culture of irresponsibility, both with regards to unwanted pregnancy and STIs.

  28. I've seen videos where women have had up to 15 abortions! At what point does society draw the line. So I guess what's the point in teaching responsibility if a woman can just get abortion after abortion.

  29. It is selfish to bring an unwanted child into this world. She's brave & I dig it! Chelsea is currently 45 & childless by choice. I feel empowered by the movement to be childless, but my reason differs in that I think it is selfish to bring a child into the world. How could I when there are so many foster children who need those resources. She was a 16 year old thinking and acting w/behaviors fueled by an adolescent brain – making adult decisions without a developed brain; areas involving impulsivity, emotion, & planning until age 21-25. Considering our competitive job market & the fact that a 4 year college degree is worthless now that there are so many graduates. Also, the cost of living is up — Maybe… giving birth is more harmful than having an abortion? Her unborn fetus did not have a choice, but she did and its consistent to her choices today.

  30. I'm pro choice but let's not act like having an abortion is a badge of honor to be praised. It is a necessary evil, and anyone that would brag about it has a blatant disregard for human life. Somethings are better left private

  31. I fail to see how I should have any control over YOUR uterus, or YOU over mine? Don't like abortions? Don't get one! That's how far YOUR rights go. Choose life! Don't worry about MY choice.

  32. I hate it when people constantly bitch about where their tax money goes. One day you might need help and guess what: peoples tax money goes to that too!!

  33. I'm pro-choice, but as long as the man cannot opt out of his responsibility, the woman mustn't be able to opt out of her responsibility either. So I'm against abortion, until the 'financial abortion' for men is legal.

  34. Keep it in your pants until you are married and millions and millions of
    these unwanted babies will never occur. Its your moral slobbery that
    creates the condition and its your selfishness that breeds a murderous
    solution. Deal with it.

  35. 2 murders in one year Chelsea Handler and you think we want to hear this? Shame on you for Murdering your babies. After the First Offense you should of know better, regardless of your age. You are arrogant. You will see both of THEM again one day.. on the other side. Praying for your heart condition & common core sense.
    #GodBlessAmerica #USA #GetOverYourself #TRUMPIsThePresidentElectForUSA2016 #GODisStillTheKING #ThankYouJesus

  36. Why we feel the need to dictate people's sex lives and reproductive choices is beyond me. NOT YOUR BUSINESS. End of story.

  37. it's her body, that baby would probally have a fucked up life back then because she wasnt ready for that baby in any way…however, having uprotected sex AGAIN the same year thats just fuckin stupid and irresponsible…..and that im pissed off about

  38. Chelsey Handler in a nutshell: get abortions if you get pregnant don't get married coz marriage sucks have plenty of sex with random strangers live until you're in your late ages and be unmarried and unloved with no children.
    Female "empowerment".

  39. how is she fighting shame she doesnt looked one bit shamed in her interview laughing about it.she seems pretty proud of herself

  40. The reason we don't murder people is that there is usually someone who will miss them. Murder is infinitely more a problem for those still living than for the dead. A fetus, though has no friends, no family, no one has even laid eyes on it yet. Its not really a person yet at the level of maturity that an abortion is permitted. Abortion is no more murder than eating cod roe.

  41. So we have to applaud a woman for being irresponsible with her body. Do we applaud men who are irresponsible by not paying child support for kids they do not want? NO we call him a DEAD BEAT DAD. So I guess that makes a woman who has an abortion a DEAD BEAT MOM

  42. Bravo Chelsea for ending the abortion shaming. She has great courage. #chelseahandler #courage #speakup

  43. I am against abortion but I would be happy to make an exception for a drunken skank like this Chelsea shit, who should be aborted NOW!

  44. No one ever brings adoption into this issue. This always is presented as a choice between a 16 year old having a baby or an abortion.

    Chelsea and the young Turks are all mad murderous pieces of crap.

    Don't murder an innocent baby who's done nothing wrong; murder crappy stupid libtards!! Murder Chelsea Handler! Murder Cenk!!! Murder all the young Turks!!!!

    Handler and the Young Turks are NOT INNOCENT!!! THEY'RE VILE!!! TAKE them all out into the streets, shove their noses into the gravel and pump three bullets in their heads!!! Kill Libtards!!!!

  45. And we are suppose to take moral advice from her? 🤦‍♀️. Just because someone famous does it, doesn’t make it right. Why are we trying to stop our consciences from working. 🤔

  46. Oh yeah Chelsea Handler is so brave and is such a role model. She felt “parented” while having an abortion.

  47. It's illegal to sell fetus parts but they do that? You are both so stupid and mind controlled. Planned parenthood are nothing but baby killers and this is not prowoman at all.

  48. Why do these pro life people believe that taxpayer money should never be used to support abortions simply because THEY don’t personally agree with it? But they’re totally fine with taxpayer money being used to support the defense/military and wars even tho there are people who don’t agree with it?

  49. PEOPLE,,STOP ! KILLING ALL THE BABIES..ANYONE KILLING THEIR BABY NEEDS TO GET MURDER. AND STERILIZATION…
    WHORES…..

  50. All you pro-abortion people. Do you wish your mother had made the 'choice' to abort you? Bet not. So let's not make that awful decision to kill others, a decision they would never have wanted for themselves.

  51. Amazing thing about this issue, the people who hate abortions cause America to have more than other major nations by hating on sex ed and birth control. Congrats fools.

  52. She was 16, she got pregmant one time and with the help of her parents, she did an abortion! Then she got pregnant again a couple of months later when she was still 16, and went to do another abortion!? And she doesnt want to feel shame??? WTF???

  53. Have an abortion 1 minute or more before birth = legal/normal*. Killing a baby 1 minute or later after birth = illegal/murder…

    I am against abortion, that baby is not a part of your body, it could even have his/her own blood type. It grows because of the food you eat (ur feeding it) it doesn’t take anything away from ur body except for food and water. I think that it’s the punishment you get for having unsafe sex

  54. This is the same woman who laughed when a man pi**ed in her face. I really wish her mom had an abortion. Conservatives don’t even know who is having abortions. What are these 2 morons even talking about. What a couple of patronizing idiots.

  55. Chelsea was pressured by her parents with the first pregnancy, she didn't really have a choice. I didn't even have sex under age! I never had an abortion.

  56. Chelsea made me very proud of her when she stood up and spoke up against people who shame women who choose abortion over childbirth. Pregnancy and childbirth are not every woman's cups of tea; not all women enjoy those things. Congratulations to Chelsea for NOT feeling ashamed of her two abortions! 🤗😊😆😃.

  57. What someone does with their own body is none of nobodies business but being proud of having multiple abortions is definitely a lack of morality and nothing to be proud of..

  58. Even though I think Chelsea Handler is an awful person, I am glad she did this. Women should have the right to their own bad choices. Men do.
