Feminists are lauding “The Goonies” actress Martha Plimpton, who bragged about the best abortion she’s ever had at a pro-abortion event in Seattle.

“We should be able to say if our abortion experience was a good one and what made it good – that’s how we create better abortion care,” tweeted feminist author and contributor to Marie Claire and the Guardian, Jessica Valenti on Thursday.

Her tweets came after a video began circulating on Wednesday of Plimpton saying “[I] had my first abortion here at the Seattle Planned Parenthood. Notice I said ‘first’… I don’t want you guys to feel insecure, it was my best one. Heads and tails above the rest. If I could Yelp review it, I totally would.”

Valenti also wrote that basically all women who have abortions don’t regret a thing, despite countless stories of women that describe the anguish they endured during and after an abortion.

Feminist author Emma Flint also supported Plimpton’s inflammatory comments.

Valenti’s tweets have received hundreds of likes and retweets within a few hours.
