A recent Texas law has brought out the abortion zealots.
The Left has a fit whenever their “right” to kill babies is threatened.
And one left-wing actress made a stomach-churning statement about abortion.
Actress Uma Thurman recently wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post where she revealed that she had an abortion in her late teens.
The part that was most chilling about her confession was that she viewed having an abortion as the only option to allow her to achieve her life goals.
“The abortion I had as a teenager was the hardest decision of my life, one that caused me anguish then and that saddens me even now, but it was the path to the life full of joy and love that I have experienced. Choosing not to keep that early pregnancy allowed me to grow up and become the mother I wanted and needed to be.”
In essence, Thurman sacrificed her baby for a “life full of joy and love.”
Thurman isn’t the only actress to make this argument.
Academy Award-nominated actress Michelle Williams made similar statements while accepting a Golden Globe award.
Actress Busy Philipps said all of her success was due to having an abortion.

Thurman said her decision caused her “anguish” and “saddens” her even to this day.
But Harper’s Bazaar wrote a pro-abortion piece in 2020 that argued everyone should “stop expecting women to regret their abortions.”
Harper’s, though despicable, is at least ideological consistent.
If fetuses are just a clump of cells and not actual human beings, then there really shouldn’t be any anguish or sadness.
Missing from Thurman’s self-reflection is that she could’ve given her baby up for adoption if she felt she wasn’t in a position to raise a child.
At the very least, that child deserved an opportunity to grow up to pursue his or her dreams and “life full of joy and love” too.
