February 24, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — The British-born TV actress and celebrity Jameela Jamil said she felt only “relief” from her abortion, saying that a baby could “f–king ruin everything if it’s not something that you feel comfortable with.”

Jamil’s video addressed a variety of issues ranging from life in Hollywood, to expressing her support for sexual acts with multiple people, and closing with her views on abortion, including aborting her own child.

“I love talking about my abortion because I think it is one of the most important subjects in our generation,” Jamil declared. “The only side effect I’ve ever had from mine is relief, and I think it is the single most important decision I’ve ever made and the best one I’ve ever made.”

“I was not in a dramatic situation,” she admitted. “My life wasn’t in danger. I wasn’t a victim of rape or incest in how I got pregnant. I was just not in the right relationship, not ready, not financially stable enough, not emotionally stable enough, not psychologically stable enough.”

“I didn’t want a baby; I would have hugely resented a baby at that time,” stated Jamil, before mentioning how she did not want her “dreams” to be affected in any way by having a baby.

“I just didn’t want a baby, and that’s okay. That’s an okay enough reason.”

Jamil has previously spoken out about her abortion. In since-deleted tweets, Jamil wrote in 2019 that her abortion somehow benefited the baby who was killed, as well as her. “I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me and for the baby I didn’t want.”

In the latest video on her YouTube channel, Jamil advocated for abortion, not simply for women who felt they had a “super dramatic reason,” but simply because they “didn’t want a baby.”

Having a baby, could “just f–king ruin everything if it’s not something that you feel comfortable with and that you are ready for,” she claimed.

The actress stated that she felt “no shame whatsoever about having had my abortion,” before continuing by attacking people who disagreed with her on the morality of abortion. “They’re wrong; they’re stupid, and they are ar—-les.”

“I’m not sorry, it wasn’t wrong. Best thing I’ve ever done and my life is a million times better for that decision. And if I choose to one day have babies, I’m so glad that will be my choice.”

She ignored the possibility of adoption and made no mention of the significant detrimental effects which abortion has on the mother. Research continues to highlight those (often ignored) effects. A study conducted by the Franciscan University of Steubenville pointed to significant negative biological and behavioral consequences which resulted from abortion.

In fact, a 2011 study published by the British Journal of Psychiatry revealed that women who underwent an abortion experienced an 81% increased risk of mental health problems. The study also found that almost 10% of all women’s mental health problems are directly linked to abortion.

Worrying statistics from 2013 have also shown that the suicide rates among mothers who abort their children are six times as high as those who give birth. The figures also noted that 65% of women suffered symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after abortion.

States are blocking pro-lifers from sharing the simple message “Choose Life” on their vehicles!

Please SIGN this joint petition between LifeSite and The Children First Foundation to make "Choose Life" license plates available in every state! Tell governors and state officials to allow this pro-life freedom of speech.

Advertising industry statistics show that, for the typical vehicle, a “Choose Life” plate and its simple, powerful message will be seen by other drivers 30,000 to 80,000 times a year.

And, across the U.S., “Choose Life” vehicle license plates (or tags) have raised more than $28 million for pro-life pregnancy centers, maternity homes, safe havens, and adoption centers, varying with each state.

The potential for expanding the “Choose Life” license plate program to new states and new members is incredible – but only if citizens are allowed to have the plates!

It is appalling that seventeen U.S. states do not allow their citizens the right to put “Choose Life” license plates on their vehicles.

The plates have been called pro-life “scare tactics” by Planned Parenthood and unlawful or hateful “private speech” by pro-abortion lawyers. The “Choose Life” message, however, is one of pure love that scares nobody except those who profit from death.

It is unacceptable that we are blocked from our God-given and Constitutional right to spread the message of love and life for vulnerable unborn and newborn children.

Your signature on this petition – no matter where you live – will help to get the “Choose Life” license plate program in states where it is not yet permitted!

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to make a real difference in persuading these state governments and Departments of Motor Vehicles to “Choose Life.”

Consider, for example, our experience in New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo is a nationally-recognized advocate of abortion and has been a relentless opponent of the pro-life movement.

Cuomo has blocked the approval of “Choose Life” license plates in NY, despite widespread support for these truly positive messages of love and life. A headline in the New York Post declared, “The DMV Acts Like We Live in Pyongyang.”

And, in nearby New Jersey and Connecticut, similar hurdles were faced.

But we took the fight to the government officials and even to federal court. And, with the help of petitions, we were able to get “Choose Life” license plates on the road in both states.

It is high time for us to convert EVERY state in America to choose life.

Your signature on this petition - no matter where you live - will help make that happen by placing “Choose Life” license plates on tens of thousands more cars.

For love, for life, for the babies, please SIGN and SHARE our worldwide petition to tell state officials and politicians to stop blocking approval of the “Choose Life” license plate!

Jamil’s outspoken defense of abortion and attack on pro-lifers is not without precedent, however. Following her Harper’s Bazaar interview in 2019, in which she spoke strongly for abortion, Jamil delivered another tirade aimed specifically at pro-life Twitter users, calling them “clueless.”

“I SAID WHAT I F‑‑‑‑‑‑ SAID and you’re clueless if you think I’m going to take it back. My life *is* more important to me than an unborn fetus’ one. Suck on that,” she wrote.

Jamil’s pattern of intolerance continued last year, when she canceled a planned interview with the conservative activist Candace Owens, after Owens made comments on transgender issues. Owens had commented on a news headline of a “transgender man” (i.e., a biological woman) giving birth, saying, “only women can get pregnant and only men can impregnate them.”

Jamil subsequently revoked the interview invitation, saying that she had a transgender member of staff, and that “nothing is worth my friends and coworkers feeling unsafe.”
