Abortion can be a delicate topic of conversation, but Rosie O'Donnell and Chelsea Handler dove right into it on "The Rosie Show" (Weeknights, 7 p.m. EST on OWN). Handler talked about her own experience as a 16-year old girl who got pregnant. At the time, she felt determined to keep the baby.
"I was so delusional," she said. "I was like, 'I'm ready for a baby.'"
Her parents had a very different perspective, pushing her toward having an abortion right away. "You're throwing your entire life away," they told her. "You're supposed to create a life for yourself. We want you to enjoy your life and not be raising a child, and we're certainly not going to raise it for you."
O'Donnell cited opponents of the landmark Roe v. Wade court case that legalized abortions coming out and saying that the abortion they had ruined their lives. "That's not the stuff I've heard from my friends who've had abortions," she said. "Listen, not that it was a casual thing that they never think about again, but it wasn't a life-defining negative thing."
Handler has no regrets about her decision, feeling that she certainly wouldn't have been a good mother to the child. "You should do whatever you want with your body and you shouldn't let anyone tell you what to do," she said.
