Chelsea Handler made some very curious and quite shocking revelations. The famous comedian claimed that she had two abortions at the age of 16. Chelsea also claimed that she regretted nothing. However, she confessed that at the time when this happened, she was going through some very difficult moments in her life.
Chelsea made these revelations during an essay for Playboy magazine. The star claimed that she has no regrets when it comes to her decision to terminate these two pregnancies. Chelsea said that getting abortions was not her first choice at the time when it happened. Actually, at first, she believed that she would do fine with raising a child.
“Getting an abortion wasn’t the first idea that popped into my unripened brain. I was going through a very bad stage in my life,” she revealed in her essay. “I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex. I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, ‘Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!'” she went on to explain.
However, she revealed that the idea of her having a child at 16 did not seem great for her parents. So, Chelsea’s parents “acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood. I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way.”
Well, the same year, Chelsea got pregnant for the second time and she struggled to get the money she needed to go to Planned Parenthood and get a second abortion. “Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision. We all make mistakes all the time,” she claimed adding that it was finally good that she was able to get a legal abortion, “without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family.”
Chelsea concluded that if she wouldn’t have made those decisions at that time, she may not be who she is today, so this is the reason why she has no regrets.
