Actress Sally Field lashed out at pro-life state leaders in a new interview, claiming their efforts to protect unborn babies from abortion are “backward, so ignorant and really just power hungry.”

Field, known for her roles in “The Flying Nun” and “Gidget,” had an illegal abortion in 1964 when she was 17 years old, and her anger appears to come from a place of unresolved pain and trauma.

Speaking with Variety recently, the 75-year-old actress became upset when asked about states like Texas and Florida that recently passed laws banning 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.”

Dear Sally
I would suggest you repent and make better choices. I truly know without a doubt that what goes around comes around! You’ll be headed out of this place in a short breath. What will your answer be to the Father? Inconvenience?

I’m not a man and I’m not ignorant because I hate seeing innocent children killed in the womb because they are an inconvenience for their mothers.

Kill the mother. Save the infant. There are many who’d gladly take the baby. THERE ARE MAJORITY WHO HAVE NO PROBLEM EXTERMINATING BABY KILLERS.

Truly disappointed in Sally Fields. What if her parents had decided to not have her
she wouldn’t be here as an adult to voice her thoughts. What happened to “babies”
were the most precious gift in the world?

Sally Field is typical big mouth Hollywood scum. I find it funny she has to bring blacks and LGBTQ into a discussion about abortion. I would guess that black people don’t want to be used like this but liberals like Field have no problem with it.

I wish celebs would just hush. They have a large megaphone and sometimes using it makes old fans turn away because of their opinions. I’m adopted and grateful to be here. Instead pretending abortion is nothing more than another birth control, or that you are just scraping out a bunch of your cells, or worst of all because a baby will ruin your career, perhaps have the child and put them up for adoption? Or frigging take real birth control? It always amazed me growing up that I had no rights to know anything, health, whatever and it is the same with the baby you are planning to abort. They have no rights according to the woman who is pregnant … my body, my choice… but that really isn’t true once you get pregnant, now there is another in your body, that has a body, that should have rights. Those who have championed global population control have worked very, very hard to convince women that that baby within is a clump of cells, nothing more and no big deal…you bought right into it, and have been a good little drone. Perhaps if these women would realize how much money barren couples would pay them for their clump of cells, things might change. And finally, stop allowing these women a role in the child’s life after they give them up. At least as they grow up. They should not have it both ways. Allow all the data to be given to the child, because one of the greatest things that seem to haunt adoptees is where did I come from, but don’t allow a person who wanted to kill the baby have a say in that baby’s life in a new home.

Another celebrity I used to like that I can cross off my list. I don’t understand how so many people can be so heartless. If you don’t want to have a baby, then don’t have a baby. Be responsible! There are so many ways to not have a baby besides abortion. Stop using abortion as birth control. We know so much more about what goes on now during Abortions. Watch one on an ultrasound and tell me how it makes you feel. The silent scream.
The most helpless an innocent and vulnerable it just breaks my heart And God will forgive the most heinous sin, If you truly repent and you will see that child again. The latest tactic in abortion is not only up until birth and after but up to 28 days. Tell me how that makes any sense at all. My heart breaks for all of this that is happening to this innocent children and those who do not repent before they leave this earth.

For the most part, all the scum in this profession are wack job to the left of the left. Yes, there’s a few good ones still out there. Most just follow whatever in order to get work. I wouldn’t listen to any of their garbage or go to the movies. They need to fail miserably and go away quietly.

Sally, first of all, those laws were not enacted by gubernatorial edict, but passed through both houses of each legislature, and had women voting for them in both states. First and foremost, do not lay this on men exclusively. Second, I don’t what this has to do with power. Third, the Constitution says in two places that no person shall be deprived of life without due process of law. That means that a woman cannot unilaterally decide to end her own child’s life without due process of law. The Supreme court has elaborated at length what due process means.

Abortion is nothing less than cold blooded murder, there is life in the female’ egg, and there is life in the male sperm, at the very moment of conception, this is the very first stage of a human life. Nothing else is add other than nourishment to bring this life to birth; just as nourishment is added to bring the baby to toddler… Just as we need nourishment to carry each of us to the next stage of our lives.
Abortion is one of the main reasons that God is about to let the U.S. to be destroyed by heathen nations, just as He allowed heathen nations to destroy the nation of Israel a total of seven times as we are told in the Book of Judges… However, unlike the promise to save a remnant of Israel, God has not made any promises to save a remnant of the U.S. other than the born-again Christians.

Knowing as l do that you cannot murder a spirit or child of god—- how is Sally going to react after her own death to meet that wonderful person she thought she got rid of and rejects her for eternity—- Children are our greatest gift from God — too much of Hollywood thinks they are God — as a mother of Five all l can say is what so blessing they are and have been for me

I’ve said it before and I will repeat it, plus twice on Sunday. Anyone, anyone still supporting anything coming out of Hollyweird and the craziness that makes up that scum town, is crazier than these know nothing, soulless vermin.
Academy awards are on tonight. How many of you are going to watch? As many as said they were done with pro football, and now they’re doing better than ever. To me this is incredibly frustrating!

Sally: Your soul is in danger. Murder is murder and that breaks one of the Ten Commandments that God gave us. It is so unnecessary to abort a baby. The solution to not wanting a child is simple, keep your clothes on. Just because your name is known, just because you have played cutesy “little” girls/women, just because you are famous, just because you repeat words someone else wrote, does not, I repeat DOES NOT make you wise or smart. Find some humility so you can tell God with honesty and sincerity that you are deeply sorry for the life you took when you were 17 years old. Don’t let the anguish of that moment torment you any longer. God can and does forgive our sins — that’s why Jesus died on the cross and resurrected — in order to save us from our sins. Be humble, be true to God, and, most importantly, forgive yourself as He will forgive you if you ask.

Sally Field is the one who is a criminal. She killed her baby in 1964. And to think she has the audacity to call someone who is trying to protect innocent children a criminal is utterly despicable. Not only is she a murederer, she supports a man being in the bed with a man and a woman being in the bed with another woman. She has no conscience. Useless human being.

So according to Sally, passing laws to protect and defend the defenseless is “ignorant and backwards”. Hmm, so the opposite is being able to kill the defenseless is somehow enlightened thinking? Do you not have a conscious, Sally? And as I write this, the state of Maryland has proposed being able to kill a baby up to 28 days after birth. We’ve come a long way from Roe v Wade where Sally’s side argued that abortion would be an extreme circumstance.

Sally fields is a Godless Marzist who thinks it’s ok to kill babies. She and others like Her
will have to stand before Her maker some day and explain Why she thought murder
was ok for a living soul that could not speak for it’s self to get torn apart while still having a heart beat. You Sally will suffer the pains of hell for your deeds.

Oh Sally! And to think you were one of my favorites back in the day:(. I too had an illegal abortion and regret it with all my heart! I too was just 17years old! But after 7 years of hiding all the emotional pain I was set free by the loving Grace of Jesus! Don’t be in denial any longer Sally. Please know that at 17 you were thinking you were getting rid of a pregnancy but instead it was a real live baby inside of you. Don’t be in deception… The enemy comes to steal, kill and destroy… but God came that you might have life and life abundantly . Time on earth here is short. Very short! I hope and pray that you will have a change of heart and that I will see you in eternity some day soon. Turn to Jesus, He loves you and that baby that is now in heaven with Him.

God would forgive anyone even murdering your own son daughter for believing the lie of those doing abortions, You are upset that we want babies to live. So much compassion for us? No like all Liberals that want death instead of life. You are evil in your heart be upset with those making millions of dollars a year Murdering and sailing babies parts. That is evil like you for supporting murdering of babies.

Abortionists are NOT Dr’s! Doesn’t that make these irresponsible whores worry? The first oath of a REAL doctor is to “Do NO Harm”. I’m pretty sure watching detached limbs, ribcages, and crushed skulls coming out of a vagina can’t be misconstrued as doing no harm. God was with these babies while they were forming and growing in their mothers womb. Before a skag should be allowed to have an abortion she should watch an ultrasound of her soon to be murdered baby, then look at it after it’s ripped to shreds. Harsh? You bet your ass I am. Sally Field can suck it, your not innocent as gigitte. Your a coat hanger killer. We all know it now you filthy animal.
