Chelsea Handler: `I had an abortion at 16`

Chelsea Handler has revealed that she had an abortion when she was just 16.

The 36-year-old chat show host spoke up in opposition to MTV show 16 And Pregnant, arguing that it doesn't reflect how serious the consequences of becoming a teenage parent are.

She told the New York Times, '16 and Pregnant? Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you're a teenager? Are you serious?

'I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.

'I had an abortion when I was 16, because that's what I should have done. Otherwise, I would now have a 20-year-old kid.'

She added, 'Anyway, those are things that people shouldn't be dishonest about.'
