Martha Plimpton is best known for her roles in television displays like The Goonies and The Real O’Neils , but this week she’s construction headlines for a much more disturbing reason.
A video shot in June at the Seattle # ShoutYourAbortion event is just starting to gain widespread attention after it was liberated online.
Plimpton, who attended the same event in March of 2016 adorned in an “abortion” dress stamped with hearts, built no less of a statement at this year’s event–but this time with her distasteful remarks.
The actress not only praised her multiple abortions, but hailed the one she had in Seattle her “best one” 😛 TAGEND
“Seattle has some special significance for me for lots of reasons. I’ve got a lot of family here, some of whom are here in the audience tonight. I likewise had my first abortion here at the Seattle Planned Parenthood! Yay!
Notice I said’ first’…and I don’t want Seattle–I don’t crave you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one. Brains and tails above the remainder. If I could Yelp examine it, I entirely would.”
“And if that doctor’s here tonight, I don’t recollect you at all, I was 19, ” she added as the crowd roared in laughter and clapping. “I was 19, but I thank you nonetheless. You probably won’t remember because I wasn’t that famous then.”
And it seems her irreverence for the unborn is backfiring, perhaps making her even less famous than she was as a teen before she hit the big screen.
Twitter consumers were not NEARLY as amused by her playful advocacy for babe killing.
Plimpton went on to insult pro-lifers, saying they’re “not the brightest bulbs that we’re dealing with here.”
Other statements made at the event are similarly unsettling.
Dr. Willie Parker( an abortion doctor who use Christianity to justify his chore ), remarked, “I’ve never killed a newborn. I’ve terminated pregnancies, but I’ve never killed a baby.” In his recently released book Life’s Work: A Moral Argument for Choice , Parker argues that he is ultimately “blessing women” by helping them induce “sacred decisions.”
But amidst the #ShoutYourAbortion absurdity, another group of individuals is coming together to scream truth.
While many females are celebrating how abortion stimulated their lives better on social media, there are others who are joining forces under the popular hashtag to share how abortion negatively impacted them and their families.
“My mother aborted me, ” wrote Twitter user @ andieiamwhoiam. “I lived. Childhood was Hell but I overcame. Her regret led to suicide. Don’t do it. Life matters.”
Others tweeted equally haunting experiences, as well as lanes that they plan to honor their future children by “speaking TRUTH”:
“It was two years before I learned about basic #fetal development, and realized that their own children wasn’t only a puddle of liquid, ” shared a woman named Bonnie. “He appeared exactly like the baby in this image, before he was torn apart, extremity by limb by the abortionist. Devastation and regret don’t even come close to describing the sensation I had when I realise I had been lied to. Had I been given the #truth , by anyone, I would have opposed with “peoples lives” for my child and never allowed him to be #killed …”
In a culture with an ever-increasing inclination to “do what’s best for you” regardless of the consequences, I’m so thankful for brave females like this who are willing to speak out without reproach for the LIFE that deserves a chance to be loved.
