A woman who isn’t ashamed and broken by her abortion(s). Such a horrible person. And I am referring to Katie Yoder not Martha Plimpton


Here’s the short version: At a June 7 event in Seattle for the pro-choice social media campaign #ShoutYourAbortion, Plimpton spoke with Dr. Willie Parker, and made some offhand remarks about her own abortions as if they were routine medical procedures, not life-changing horrors that scarred her forever. You can hear Yoder’s upset sniffs:

What do you get when you put an actress who jokes about abortion in the same room as an abortionist who says he’s never killed a baby? Cheers, laughter and attacks on pro-life Christians. Or that’s what happened in Seattle.

Here’s the offending portion of Plimpton’s introduction of the doctor:

“Seattle has some particular significance for me for lots of reasons,” she started. “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.”

“Yayyyyy!” she cheered, prompting the audience into applause.

“Notice I said ‘first.’ I said ‘first.’ And I don’t want Seattle – I don’t want you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one,” she joked, prompting laughter from both the audience and Parker.

“Heads and tails above the rest,” she continued on her abortion. “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.”
