Chelsea Handler Pens Essay for ‘Playboy,’ Divulges She Had Two Abortions


In the new Playboy “Freedom” issue, Chelsea Handler shared a very personal story about having the right to a legal and safe abortion, revealing that she underwent two such procedures at the age of 16.

“I hated my parents and I was having unprotected sex with my boyfriend, who was not someone I should’ve been having sex with in the first place, never mind unprotected sex,” Handler said.

The comedian’s parents helped her come to the realization that she was unprepared to become a mother, and they took her to Planned Parenthood.

“I’m grateful that I came to my senses and was able to get an abortion legally without risking my health,” Handler finished.
