Watch Busy Philipps Testify to Congress: The Reason I Had an Abortion "Shouldn't Matter"

Curated via Twitter from W magazine’s twitter account….

Philipps had her abortion in Arizona, and in the years since, the state has adopted a number of draconian measures to discourage women from undergoing the procedure. “If I were that same 15-year-old in Arizona today, legally I would have to get parental consent,” she said when testifying on Capitol Hill. “I would be forced to undergo a medically unnecessary ultrasound, go to a state-mandated in-person counseling session designed solely to shame me into changing my mind, and then take a state-mandated 24-hour time-out to make sure I really know what I wanted.

Yesterday, June 4, actress and talk show host Busy Philipps delivered deeply moving testimony to Congress regarding abortion, in which she detailed getting an abortion at the age of 15 while strongly condemning the extreme new abortion restrictions in states like Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Missouri.
