Girls star Jemima Kirke opened up about a personal and controversial subject in a new PSA: She talks about an abortion she had when she was a college student.
In the video, posted this week by the Center for Reproductive Rights for their "Draw the Line" campaign, the 29-year-old London-born actress, artist and mother talks about the difficulties and "stigma" attached to ending a pregnancy and shares her hopes for her and husband Michael Mosberg's young daughters.
"In 2007, I became pregnant with my boyfriend at the time," Kirke, who also has a 2-year-old son, says in the PSA. "I wasn't sure that I wanted to be attached to this person for the rest of my life. My life just was not conducive to raising a healthy, happy child. I just didn't feel it was fair. So, I decided to get an abortion."
