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.”
