Actress Martha Plimpton told a cheering Seattle audience that her “first abortion” at age 19 was her “best” abortion.
Plimpton spoke at a #ShoutYourAbortion event in Seattle back in June, proudly recalling an event many would agree is traumatic and emotional, not something to celebrate.
“Seattle has some particular significance for me for lots of reasons,” she said. “I’ve got a lot of family here, some of whom are here in the audience tonight. I also had my first abortion here at the Seattle Planned Parenthood.”
The 46-year-old, who starred in “The Goonies,” then raised her arm up as she cheered, “Yay!”
The audience joined in with applause.
“Notice I said ‘first.’ I said ‘first.’ And I don’t want Seattle – I don’t want you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one,” she said.
“Heads and tails above the rest,” she went on. “If I could Yelp review it, I totally would. And if that doctor’s here tonight, I don’t remember you at all, I was 19. I was 19, but I thank you nonetheless.”
Plimpton shared the stage with one of her “heroes” and “favorite writers,” Willie Parker, a self-proclaimed Christian who provides abortions and is a former Planned Parenthood medical director. The two seemed to have quite a bit of fun attacking Christians and pro-life advocates for their supposed beliefs.
Parker, who is the author of a memoir chronicling his personal and professional journey for choice, joined Plimpton in a Q&A session at the Seattle event, answering questions like how to convince pro-life advocates – “antis” – that abortion isn’t murder.
“The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it’s open,” Parker said. He also stated that “a fetus is not a person” and that “if you really believe that abortion is murder, call 911 and see if the police will come to an abortion clinic.”
The abortion provider amazingly declared, “I’ve never killed a baby. I’ve ended pregnancies, but I’ve never killed a baby.”
Plimpton, who has lobbied Congress on behalf of Planned Parenthood and is on the board of directors of “A Is For…,” a nonprofit striving to normalize abortion, basically said the killing of unborn children is “a normal part of women’s medical lives.”
“Abortion is not some crazy weird last resort,” she said.
Twitter users reacted to Plimpton’s outrageous remarks.
That’s disgusting and disturbing not just b/c of her attitude but the crowd actually applauding this mess! Downfall of society!

You brag about having abortions? And you think that is ‘sane’?

Disgusting. No more a @MarthaPlimpton fan.

You cheering your BEST abortion is the equivalent to cheering ISIS using children as suicide bombers.

@MarthaPlimpton It’s one thing to be pro-choice and entirely another thing to “brag” about your abortions and “be proud” of them.

If this is your badge of honor, Martha, you might be a sociopath.

Very disturbing to be “proud” and call it your “best” like it was a new hairstyle.

I totally agree. Making a joke about ending a life not once but multiple times is sickening!!
