Sarah Silverman on Abortion: ‘I Don’t Like to Admit This, But…’ (Mediaite)
Comedian Sarah Silverman has made women’s reproductive rights one of the major causes of her life, but on Friday night’s Real Time with Bill Mahershe made a shocking admission: She’s never had an abortion.
Silverman told Maher about the fundraiser she helped put together in Texas that aimed to provide finding to asset women who need to travel 10 hours from their homes to get safe, affordable abortions. While she was there, she confronted protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church, including a 9-year-old girl who was holding a sign that read “Abortion is Bloody Murder.”
“We have to see them as human,” Silverman said, “and hopefully maybe they will see us as human.” When the protesters told her she was going to hell, she replied, “I can’t! I don’t believe in God.”
