Pregnant actress celebrates abortion in Golden Globes victory speech

A pregnant actress has championed anti-life legislation while celebrating her second Golden Globe award by alluding to having an abortion in her acceptance speech, on Sunday, saying she “wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose.”

After collecting the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television award for her role in Fosse/Verdon, Michelle Williams used her speech to push her pro-abortion views.

“I’ve tried my very best to live a life of my own making and not just a series of events that happened to me, but one that I can stand back and look at and recognize my handwriting all over,” she told the audience in Los Angeles, California.

She continued: “Sometimes, messy and scrawling, sometimes careful and precise. But one that I had carved with my own hand, and I wouldn’t have been able to do this without employing a woman’s right to choose […] when to have my children, and with whom”

Delivering a wider plea for women to vote for pro-abortion candidates in this year’s US election, she said: “Women, 18 to 118, when it is time to vote, please do so in your own self-interest. It’s what men have been doing for years, which is why the world looks so much like them. But don’t forget, we are the largest voting body in this country. Let’s make it look more like us.”

Actress Busy Philipps, who ‘shouted her abortion’ in response to the State of Georgia’s pro-life heartbeat bill, was shown wiping tears away while Williams spoke and award presenter, Tiffany Haddish, could be heard shouting, “Preach!” before the audience applauded the speech.

Williams is set to benefit financially from her promotion of abortion as she will have a leading role in the pro-abortion film titled This Is Jane about an underground network responsible for over 10,000 illegal abortions in the 60s and 70s. 

She is currently expecting her first child with fiancé Thomas Kail and is mother to 14-year-old Matilda, whom she had with the late Heath Ledger.

A spokesperson for Right To Life UK, Catherine Robinson said:

“It is a sad reflection of our society that women feel the need to undergo an abortion to have a successful career and is one of the reasons why better support for pregnant women and a call to end maternity discrimination formed a key part of our Both Lives Pledge election campaign.

“In 2020 and beyond, we will be calling on the Government to support women in the workplace by backing policies designed to end discrimination of pregnant and new mothers.

“The Equality Act 2010 was supposed to end discrimination in the workplace, but evidence has emerged that pregnant women and mothers still face high levels of discrimination.

“Findings from interviews conducted with over 3,000 employers and over 3,000 mothers show that an alarming 77% of women report having ‘a negative or possibly discriminatory experience during pregnancy, maternity leave, and/or on return from maternity leave.’  More specifically, ‘half of mothers […] described a negative impact on their opportunity, status or job security,’ and ‘20% reported financial loss as a result of their pregnancy.’

“Experiencing pregnancy and maternity discrimination could result in a scenario where women have to pick between being discriminated but financially secure, or leaving their job and struggling financially. No woman should have to make this choice, which is why we’re working with pro-life MPs to end maternity discrimination.

“Our analysis of the make-up of the new parliament indicates that, with your support, this is possible, as the number of pro-life MPs has increased while the pro-abortion lobby has lost a large number of MPs. While this is positive, the threat of the introduction of an extreme abortion law has not gone away. The Domestic Abuse Bill will be back and the abortion lobby will be back in force, ready to amend it with the aim of introducing an extreme abortion law to England and Wales.”

Dear reader

In 2020, the UK Government imposed an extreme abortion regime on Northern Ireland, which included a provision that legalised abortion right up to birth for disabilties including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot.

A new Bill has been launched at the Northern Ireland assembly that will remove the current provision that allows abortion for ‘severe fetal impairment’.

It is under these grounds in the regulations that babies with disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot can currently be singled out for abortion in Northern Ireland because of their disability and can be aborted right up to birth.

Before the new abortion regime was imposed on Northern Ireland in 2020, disability-selective abortion for conditions such as Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot was not legal and there was a culture of welcoming and supporting people with these disabilities rather than eliminating them.

This is reflected directly in the latest figures (2016) from the Department of Health in Northern Ireland, which show that while there were 52 children born with Down’s syndrome in Northern Ireland, in the same year only 1 child from Northern Ireland with Down’s syndrome was aborted in England and Wales. 

This contrasts with the situation in the rest of the United Kingdom where disability-selective abortion has been legal since 1967.

The latest available figures show that 90% of children diagnosed with Down’s syndrome before birth are aborted in England and Wales.

We are, therefore, asking people like you to take 30 seconds of your time and add your support to the campaign to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot in Northern Ireland.

If you live in Northern Ireland: 
Ask your MLAs to vote to stop abortion up to birth for disabilities including Down’s syndrome, cleft lip and club foot:

If you live outside Northern Ireland: 
Show your support by signing this petition in support of the Bill:
