Outspoken pro-abortion actress Jameela Jamil blasted pro-life advocates on Twitter this week and made no bones about her position on the matter, saying “my life *is* more important to me than an unborn fetus’ one. Suck on that.” . . .
The British actress’ mention of feminist Gloria Steinem refers to a November Harper’s Bazaar interview between the two, in which they discussed abortion.
“I’m very outspoken about the fact that I, similarly to you, feel very passionately about a woman’s right to choose,” Jamil told Steinem in the piece. “I’m someone who’s had an abortion, and I feel like I need to make sure that we prove it’s not always just emergencies. People have abortions, sometimes a woman just wants her liberty, and we have to normalize that it’s okay just to make that choice for yourself, because your life is as important as a newborn life that doesn’t even exist yet.”
Steinem concurred, telling the actress: “I utterly agree, and actually, as maybe you already know, going to a very early speak-out about abortion was what made me realize that we needed a women’s movement. It took me a while to understand that the first step in every authoritarian regime is controlling reproduction, and that means controlling us. Unless we — men and women — have power over our own bodies and voices, there is no such thing as democracy.” . . .
After receiving criticism for what she said in the interview, Jamil hit back hard on Twitter, telling her detractors that “I SAID WHAT I F***ING SAID and you’re clueless if you think I’m going to take it back.”
I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel.
