Lena Dunham is receiving hate for her comments on abortion on her podcast Women of the Hour. The Tiny Furniture actress said, “Something I’ve thought about a lot is the fact that there is stigma around abortion.” According to JustJared.com, she then spoke about how women were sharing their abortion stories when she visited the organisation Planned Parenthood in Texas.

“I sort of jumped. ‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it clear to her that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I never had an abortion. 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. Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had,” she said.
