Chelsea Handler Reveals She Had 2 Abortions at Age 16

Chelsea Handler Reveals She Had 2 Abortions at Age 16 in Playboy Essay

Originally posted 06/27/2016 03:05PM

Chelsea Handler is highlighting how America's reproductive laws helped her rectify "irresponsible" teenage decisions with a "thoughtful" one.

In a personal essay for Playboy's "Freedom Issue," Handler opens up about two abortions she had at age 16 – a subject she has long been candid about.

As a teen, Handler says she got pregnant after having unprotected sex with her boyfriend. "I just thought, 'Why not?' I can have a baby. Maybe I'll have twins and give them rhyming names," she details. "Of course, the idea that I would have a child and raise it by myself at that age, when I couldn't even find my way home at night, was ridiculous. My parents recognized that, so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood."

In a new revelation, she explains that she got pregnant once again later that year and was barely able to afford another $230 (Planned Parenthood's fee for a "safe abortion").

"Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it's still necessary to make a thoughtful decision," writes Handler, 41. "We all make mistakes all the time. I happened to f--- up twice at the age of 16. I'm grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health or bankrupting myself or my family."
