Another day, another stupid comment from Lena Dunham that she is apologizing for. This time, it was an off-color comment about abortion on her podcast, Women of the Hour.

While the Girls creator was discussing Planned Parenthood, its need for funding and the stigma around abortions, and was speaking to various women about their experiences getting them. Dunham herself has never experienced it, but in a way of trying to relate or something, she said:

“Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

Of course, the backlash came swiftly, as this makes it sound as if it’s an experience like getting a lower back tattoo or something. There is NO comparison! Now she’s apologizing as usual. Check out what she said below. Do you accept her apology?

My latest podcast episode was meant to tell a multifaceted story about reproductive choice in America, to explain the many reasons women do or don't choose to have children and what bodily autonomy really means. I'm so proud of the medley of voices in the episode. I truly hope a distasteful joke on my part won't diminish the amazing work of all the women who participated. My words were spoken from a sort of "delusional girl" persona I often inhabit, a girl who careens between wisdom and ignorance (that's what my TV show is too) and it didn't translate. That's my fault. I would never, ever intentionally trivialize the emotional and physical challenges of terminating a pregnancy. My only goal is to increase awareness and decrease stigma. I take reproductive choice in America more seriously than I take literally anything else, and therefore own full responsibility for any words I speak that don't convey this truth clearly. I know plenty of people will never like a thing that leaves my lips, mea culpas or no, but this apology is for the women who have placed their trust in me. You mean everything to me. My life is and always will be devoted to reproductive justice and freedom. You know how in some households you curse and have to put money in a jar? Well in mine, if you mess up your pro-choice messaging you have to give a sizable donation to abortion funds (https://abortionfunds.org/need-abortion) in New York, Texas and Ohio ?I look forward to fighting with you all for the next four years and beyond.
