Lena Dunham se disculpa por decir que desearía haber tenido un aborto

La actriz Lena Dunham pidió disculpas después de recibir críticas por declarar que nunca ha tenido un aborto, pero que desearía haberlo tenido.

La creadora y guionista de la serie “Girls” dijo esto durante su podcast Women of the Hour. La escritora de 30 años estaba recordando una vez en Texas, cuando la invitaron a contar su experiencia de su aborto. Entonces, confesó a sus escuchas que, a pesar de que apoya el movimiento pro-elección y el derecho a abortar, ella nunca se ha hecho un aborto, pero desearía haberlo tenido.

Por este comentario, Lena recibió miles de críticas en internet. Una institución pro-vida dijo que la actriz estaba hablando de los abortos como si se tratara de una extracción de apéndice.

En una imagen que publicó en Instagram, la joven dijo: “Yo nunca trivialicé intencionalmente los retos emocionales y físicos de terminar un embarazo. Mi única meta es aumentar la concientiación y disminuir el estigma”.

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.
