We all know Chelsea Handler for making us laugh, but Chelsea Handler’s life wasn’t always so comical. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Handler divulged that she had no choice but to get an abortion when she discovered she was pregnant at 16-years-old.
“I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” she said frankly. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are the things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.”
But Handler has no sympathy for today’s youngsters who broadcast their teen pregnancies to the world.
“We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment … ’16 and Pregnant.’ Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.”
