Washed-up actress Sally Field just attacked pro-life Americans for this bizarre reason

Sally Field was once a prominent and highly acclaimed actress.

And she was known for playing wholesome characters like Gidget and the Flying Nun.

But now washed-up actress Sally Field just attacked pro-life Americans for this bizarre reason.

Actress Sally Field attacked pro-life state leaders in a recent interview, claiming their work to protect unborn babies from the scourge of abortion are “backward, so ignorant and really just power hungry.”

The woman known for playing a nun had an illegal abortion

Field is probably best known for her roles in The Flying Nun, Gidget, and the classic Burt Reynolds film Smokey and the Bandit.

What most people don’t know about her is that she killed her child through an illegal abortion in 1964 when she was 17 years old.

Her anger against pro-lifers most likely comes from her unresolved pain and trauma from that abortion.

In a recent interview with Variety, the 75-year-old actress became visibly upset when she was asked about states like Texas and Florida that have passed laws limiting abortions.

“Those men who are doing that, and they’re mostly male governors who are doing it, are so backward, so ignorant and really just power hungry,” Field said. “I think it’s criminal. They’re so wanting to roll back the achievements and important progress for women, for blacks, for the LGBTQ community.”

Field of course ignored the fact that numerous polls show strong public support for the Texas heartbeat law and the Florida 15-week abortion ban, including among women. 

In fact, a recent AP poll found strong public support among women for banning abortions after the first trimester (about 12 weeks), as the Florida law does.

And just like other pro-abortion activists, Field refuses to accept that these two laws alone may save tens of thousands of unborn babies from abortion every year.

That’s why even more states are passing similar legislation this year.

Gidget gets violent

For Field, however, these life-saving laws have clearly touched a nerve. 

In her interview with Variety, Field even hinted that she would lash out physically at Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis if she ever sees them in person.

“I can’t say enough horrible things about what I feel about those men,” Field said. “If you see them coming toward me, those two governors specifically, lead me out of the way because I cannot be responsible for what I would do. [Addressing her publicist] Heidi, do you hear me? Lead me away.”

Field is likely misdirecting her anger toward pro-lifers because of the alleged sexual abuse she suffered as a young woman allegedly from her stepfather and the anesthesiologist who helped to abort her unborn baby.

Field wrote in her memoir that she became pregnant just before getting her breakthrough role on the TV show Gidget.

She claims the pregnancy occurred after a sexual romp with an unnamed boy she met after her high school graduation, according to USA Today

According to Filed, her stepfather (whom she also claims sexually abused her until she turned 14) set up the abortion in Tijuana, and Field wrote that she “couldn’t stand his imperceptible note of triumph.”

While aborting her unborn baby was traumatic enough, her trauma was made worse by the anesthesiologist who Field claims groped her breast during the abortion.

“Gathering as much force as I could, I batted his hand off,” she wrote in her 2018 memoir.

It’s understandable that Field would feel intense pain and trauma both because people allegedly abused her and because she knows she killed her unborn baby. 

But rather than fight against abortion, she has decided to fight to make it more readily available. 

She has been an outspoken abortion advocate and even joined a 2017 campaign to promote the abortion mill giant Planned Parenthood.
