Lena Dunham's Abortion Comments Anger Everybody

Lena Dunham may have meant well, but she is being attacked by both sides. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go

“A couple years back, conservative columnist George Will wrote a column that caught him some well-deserved flack. In it, he argued that being a rape victim was a “coveted status” on college campuses, one that “confers privileges.” At the time, I thought it was the stupidest thing I’d ever read, and I wrote as much. In what crazy world would a person want to have endured sexual abuse? How utterly warped would a person have to be to view trauma as aspirational?

Guess I have my answer.

On her podcast “Women of the Hour” last week, Lena Dunham informed her audience that while she’s never had an abortion personally, she wishes she had so she could do her part to reduce stigma around the issue. The story goes that when she was asked to share her abortion story, she didn’t have an abortion story to share, which she found, somehow, stigmatizing to women who had them. “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had,” she said, for some reason.”

    There are leftist crazies TYT…….. its OK to admit it. Just like there are far right crazies. Lena Dunham is a crazy.

  2. Michael Alvarez says:

    I can't believe he defended her. an abortion is a very traumatic experience. I know some ladies that had an abortion and it leaves a mental scar aside from physical wounds. I never judged them for it but when they mention it, you can see the trauma. Lena's actions leaves much to be desired from her personality. I can't believe you went around the bend. she doesn't deserve a pass. her bubble needs to burst so she can get real and see the real world and not stay ignorant of how things really are.

  3. Wayne Bhase says:

    Meant well? Really? So abortion is something we should think of as positive? Really? Murdering an innocent child, yeah, wow, what a BRAVE thing to do, eh? Used to be that if you sacrificed YOURSELF for another person, in order to SAVE THEIR life, you were called brave. Now if you cannot keep your pants/panties on, and you pass the responsibility onto the innocent baby, you're a hero. Wow, things SURE have changed in this "brave" new world, eh? Well, I'll take the old world, with the Adolf Hitlers, Joseph Stalin's and the rest of the monsters of history, because at least there was a contrast between their behavior and our own. Oh, we did plenty of things wrong, very wrong, but we tried to own up to our shortcomings and even try to make things right as best as we were able. Now the left just throws away the child in favor of "women's" rights. Bravo young generation, you have degenerated into the most loathsome generation in American history, you have nothing what so ever to be proud of, nothing. You are spineless cowards, every one. Disgusting little pricks all of you!

    Molests sister? ✔️
    Wants to kill baby? ✔️

    Why is she still famous?

  5. Elizabeth R Pheasant says:

    shes an idiot

  6. masterljreddead21 says:

    Abortion is murder, you spineless bitch!

  7. hellotychelle says:

    Comparing MCL and medical procedures to abortion and babies is not the same.

  8. osufand says:

    I can tell you as an independent. Lena Dunham is a huge turn off to anyhting in the progressive movement. Because its superficial caring. Superficial caring is what actually is an epidemic in the progressive movement. For instance Ana kasparian according to her progressive views of course against fat shaming and has an ideology of being sensitive to fat people. But when her true self comes out calls Alex Jones a fat Pig and never apologizes for it. With only an ideology to back your caring you become a bunch of phonys and that is why you are losing the market place of ideas with libertarians or even conservatives. Superifcial caring runs rampant in the progressive movement. All those celebrities like Lena dunham want to appear to care so much and signal their great virtue. But its all fake. and no one notices the phonys because you all are phonys. Stop having a fake ego ideology of caring for people and really care for people. Whether its authentic or fake its clear as day to a person not in your bubble.

  9. Michael says:

    Egotistical, self involved know it all who thinks she knows best for every woman in America…
    Why she gets attention is a mystery…..

  10. BS says:

    Eat something. Your clavicles look like they're trying to escape from you. And I can't say I blame them.

  11. Leonidas Spartacus says:

    Fat, ugly, vile, useless maggot. No amount of pain and suffering would be too great for this sickening piece of shit.

  12. kuma138 says:

    ya, abortion is a serious thing allright. murder is pretty serious wouldnt you say?

  13. David King says:

    I wish lena D. mom cared as much about abortion as she does and would have terminated her stupid ass..But really who wants to have a baby with Lena D. NOBODY!!

  14. americanoil says:

    Lena Dunham is a stupid bitch along with the young turds!

  15. Jonathan Saunders says:

    I wish her parents had one

  16. Dave Dane says:

    Another useless, classless and worthless woman. Shocker.

  17. Olivia Maloney says:

    He's saying that we should treat abortion like run of the mill surgery, his viewpoint is robotic and disgusting. At least she admits that it is a serious issue.

  18. keyser soze says:

    Privileged liberals for you, it's what we expect, that's why trump won haha

  19. Dee Smith says:

    No one should feel bad about choosing to end the life of their offspring.  Right?  Right? 

    I'm a conservative and I'm pro choice but I also recognize that it IS immoral in the eyes of about have the public so why force them to participate in subsidizing it?  It's a very personal decision to have sex, it's a very personal decision to choose to get pregnant or not, no one else has the right to make those decisions for you so for the decisions to remain individual sovereign choices, the responsibility for the consequences of those choices should also belong solely to the individual who makes the decisions and choices for themselves.  Rights and Responsibilities go hand in hand.
