The actress made the comment while she was explaining how she was surprised that she was asked to be part of a project where women speak publicly about their abortions.

“I sort of jumped,” Dunham said. “‘I haven’t had an abortion,’ I told her. I wanted to make it really clear to hear that as much as I was going out and fighting for other women’s options, I myself had never had an abortion.” (RELATED: Whoopi Goldberg: Celebrating Christmas And Getting An Abortion Is The Same Thing)

“Even I, the woman who cares as much as anybody about a woman’s right to choose, felt it was important that people know I was unblemished in this department,” she continued. “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.”

Dunham’s last remark set people off.

Even liberals were made at Dunham.
