She was just 16 and unfortunately she got pregnant and even worse she suffered two abortions. We are talking about the Talk show host and actress Chelsea Handler. She wrote an essay on abortion rights for Playboy magazine’s Freedom issue. She speaks about the dreadful experience she went through in her life.
Sharing her experience she wrote:
Like millions of women, I can live my life without an unplanned child born out of an unhealthy relationship because of Roe v. Wade. At 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. I wasn’t really playing with a full deck of cards, and when I got pregnant I just thought, Why not? I can have a baby. Maybe I’ll have twins and give them rhyming names!
She was immature she didn’t know anything about sex instead of it gives you pleasure. She said that time she started hating her parents. She had an unprotected sex with her boyfriend. The result was horrible, she became pregnant when she herself was a child. Her parents took her to Planned Parenthood. She said, “Getting unintentionally pregnant more than once is irresponsible, but it’s still necessary to make a thoughtful decision. We all make mistakes all the time. I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way.”
The twist in the story is she didn’t have just one abortion, in fact, she had two in the same year. She was impregnated by the same guy twice. But luckily she had a safe abortion again. At the age 16 when the adolescence period just steps in, Chelsea Handler suffered two abortions. She was lucky as in most of the cases teenage girls either die or face painful health consequences. She is now 41 years old and says she doesn’t ever look back and think, God, I wish I’d had that baby.
Child pregnancies are a curse in every manner. One should aware their children about sex. You need to talk openly with your children especially the teenagers. Teenage pregnancy comes with dangerous results. That not only hampers the future of a teenage but also of the child inside the womb. Teenage pregnancy is a serious issue that may seriously impact the future of a young woman. Any teen pregnancy will be a challenge as teens typically lack skills needed to handle a pregnancy and motherhood.
