Actress Maria Plimpton Gives a Disturbing Speech About Abortion


Whether you’re pro-choice or pro-life, it is no secret that an abortion is a heavy decision.  Usually, it ends up being a traumatic experience.  That is actress Martha Plimpton’s statements should be disturbing to all.

Back in June, she was a speaker at a #ShoutYourAbortion event in Seattle.  While there, The Goonies actress proclaimed her first abortion at 19 years old was her best one.

Seattle has some particular 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 also had my first abortion here at the Seattle Planned Parenthood.


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.


Heads and tails above the rest.  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.

The audience cheered on the disturbing statements from Plimpton.

Later, she ran a Q & A session with Willie Parker.  Despite proclaiming himself a Christian, Parker is a former Planned Parenthood director and continues to provide abortions.

At one point, Parker made a statement that showed just how deep his denial runs:

I’ve never killed a baby. I’ve ended pregnancies, but I’ve never killed a baby.

In another statement, he said:

The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it’s open…a fetus is not a person…if you really believe that abortion is murder, call 911 and see if the police will come to an abortion clinic.

While all Americans have a right to their own opinion, these two took the opportunity to ridicule Christians and pro-life advocates.  They also informed their audience of how to convince “anti’s” that abortion isn’t murder.

The utter denial between these two is astounding.  They dehumanize fetuses in the same way that murderers dehumanize their victims.

While pro-lifers are entitled to their opinion, I hope they agree that this is a display of disturbing behavior.
