Comedienne Chelsea Handler has stunned fans by revealing she underwent an abortion at 16.
In a candid interview with the New York Times, the TV personality opens up about her views on young parenting, and insists reality shows such as MTV's 16 and Pregnant glorify teen pregnancy.
She states, "People are too P.C. (politically correct). We need to be focusing on other things. We're seeking out such grossness in human behaviour and want such mindless entertainment. The Real Housewives of Atlanta and some of these other shows are more racist. Or 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."
Handler goes on to admit she terminated an unwanted pregnancy as a young woman: "I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that's what I should have done. Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Those are things that people shouldn't be dishonest about."
