It is revealed Chelsea Handler had to undergo two abortions when she was a teenager.
In an essay published by Playboy she reveals to have been impregnated twice the same year when she was 16-year-old and by the same partner.
Handler recollects to have paid $230 to Planned Parenthood.
Currently the 41-year-old is a vocal supporter of abortion rights. She said to have been grateful to get an abortion legally without risking her health or even bankrupting herself or her family.
A day before the article was published the Supreme Court ruled against abortion restrictions in Texas.
In 2013 a law, dubbed as H.B.2, was passed in Texas requiring abortion clinics to get admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. Such clinics were also forced to build expensive ambulatory surgical centers. It resulted with shutting down of 50 percent of the facilities in the state.
Many centers claimed the new laws were not necessary and those placed undue financial pressure on them.
Supporting the new decision of Supreme Court Handler writes in her essay, “Once you go forward in history, you don’t go backward.”
She added, “It’s a wrap on men deciding what women can do with their bodies.”
The American comedian, actress, writer, producer and TV host was placed in 2012 by Time magazine in the list of 100 Most Influential People.
She has authored 5 books including the New York Times Nonfiction Best Seller “Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.”
