Martha Plimpton’s Abortion Comments
The video was shot in June but is just now getting recognition. It shows the actress being interviewed by Dr. Willie Parker at a #ShoutYourAbortion event in Seattle.
“Seattle has some particular significance for me for lots of reasons,” the actress said at the Town Hall event. “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!”
She added, “Notice I said ‘first’…and I don’t want Seattle — I don’t want you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one.”
The audience laughed at Plimpton’s story as she continued saying, “Heads and tails above the rest,” she said. “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.”
Plimpton has always been an abortion advocate but critics found her bragging of her past two abortions distasteful. Some have even stopped following her career and called her comments “sickening.”
Martha Plimpton’s Children
Plimpton doesn’t have any children of her own but she does play the mother of a gay son in the show based on show runner Dan Savage’s life, The Real O’Neals.
“I said yes right away,” she said in a Huffington Post interview. “They sent me the script. It was very funny and I loved the idea of working with Dan, even if peripherally. Even though [the character Eileen] doesn’t get it, she’s definitely coming from a place from love and devotion and she adores her children and she particularly adores Kenny.”
She continued: “Nothing’s going to get in the way of that. She will do her damnedest to try and get him to go straight again. But she won’t abandon him, which is a lucky thing for Kenny, because a lot of kids don’t have that experience with their parents when they come out. And that’s one of the reasons why I think the show could be of value.”
