U.S. Actress Ellen Barkin Advocates Forced Abortion

VENICE, September 10, 2004 ( - U.S. Actress Ellen Barkin, who stars in the newly released film Palindromes, has made controversial remarks to reporters regarding abortion.  AFP reports Barkin saying, “I am the mother of a 12-year-old girl and I can tell you unequivocally that if my daughter was pregnant, I would take her kicking and screaming to have an abortion.”  Barkin’s comments came during a press conference to promote Todd Solondz’s movie “Palindromes”.  In the film Barkin plays the mother of a 12-year-old girl Aviva who runs away from home to get pregnant.  The bizarre film is described by Solondz in this quote concerning its main character: “This is a young girl who has loving parents who fail her in some way, who finds herself suspended between a pro-choice family who gives her no choice, and the pro-life family that kills.”  jhw
