Lena Dunham Apologizes for Wishing She Had an Abortion1:09
Lena Dunham is backtracking her controversial statement about abortion after she caused outrage. The actress has apologized for saying she wished she had an abortion. On her podcast, ?Woman of the Hour with Lena Dunham? this week, the actress and activist tackled the sensitive topic of abortion. While explaining she often felt a stigma in the birth control practice, she said this: ?I can say that I still haven?t had an abortion, but I wish I had.? Lena has now apologized. She released a statement on her Instagram account. ?My words were spoken from a sort of delusional girl persona I often inhabit, a girl who careens between wisdom and ignorance and it didn?t translate. That?s my fault.? Lena went on to say that she sympathized with women who HAVE had an abortion, and did not mean to offend them. ?I would never, ever intentionally trivialize the emotional and physical challenges of terminating a pregnancy, she continued. My only goal is to increase awareness and decrease stigma. My life is and always will be devoted to reproductive justice and freedom.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the final-ever episode of Girls. Read on at your own risk.
Girls came to an end in the US overnight on HBO, and fans took to social media to chime in on the final episode of the series.
The television show, which was created by and starred Lena Dunham, concluded her character, new mum Hannah Horvath, leaving behind Brooklyn to head to upstate New York to become a professor of internet writing.
Hannah’s friend Marnie (Allison Williams) meanwhile, is living in her mother’s home gym and offers to move upstate with Hannah to help raise Hannah’s son Grover. Marnie and Hannah bicker like co-parents and the new mother deals with the frustration of being unable to breastfeed her son. Hannah’s mother also comes into the picture, and the women hash it out.
Hannah then takes a long walk, and when she finally arrives home, she attends to her son Grover, who finally latches. The show then comes to an end.
Some viewers immediately tweeted their disappointment online, hinting the ending felt incomplete.
Well, #GirlsHBO ended with a whimper, not a bang. It just goes to show that new babies always, always ruin TV shows.

I slept on it and…The #GirlsHBO finale must’ve been a backdoor pilot episode to another project. It’s the only explanation I can think of

However some “Girls” fans were satisfied with the ambiguous ending.
Last week was the finale people wanted. Tonight was the epilogue the characters needed. I LOVED both. #GirlsHBO

This episode made me realise that all good things come to an end, but you still have happy memories that made you who you are. #GirlsHBO

The magic of #GirlsHBO: it shows complex, sometimes unlikable women & instantly reminds us that they’re still deserving of all things worthy
