In a recent interview with Glamour UK, Paris Hilton spoke about her decision to have an abortion in her early 20s, and would go on to state her controversial views on why she believes in the ability to legally seek an abortion. She expressed disbelief that laws could dictate what women do regarding the legality of abortions in the U.S., asserting that it should be a “woman’s choice,” a view that many saw as heartless, and showing a complete disregard for unborn human life in an attempt to seek convenience. Hilton also stated that she believed men would not face similar restrictions if the situation were reversed, despite the fame and prominence she is still benefitting from nearly two decades later.
The interview also touched on Hilton’s past relationship struggles and her experiences with sexual assault, including the alleged leak of her sex tapes in 2004.
She revealed that the experience had made her distrustful of future boyfriends and even considered becoming asexual. Additionally, Hilton spoke about her public persona as an heiress, stating that it was a coping mechanism for the criticism she received.
“There’s just so much politics around it and all that, but it’s a woman’s body… Why should there be a law based on that? It’s your body, your choice and I really believe in that,”
“It’s mind-boggling to me that they’re making laws about what you do with your reproductive health, because if it were the other way around with the guys, it would not be this way at all,”
The interviewer asked Hilton about her previous support for former President Donald Trump, a close family friend of the Hiltons, and his role in the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Hilton immediately shut down the question, stating that Trump was no longer a “close family friend.”
Maddick wrote, “I can’t help but wonder about her thoughts on a certain former President Donald Trump, a close family friend of the Hiltons since Paris was a child and who she claimed to have voted for… So I ask her how she feels, knowing that it was Trump who put in place the Supreme Court judges who overturned Roe v. Wade,”
Hilton interjected Maddick when “close family friend,” was said, saying, “Not any more.”
Maddick ended the topic of discussion, saying, “And with that, that topic is abruptly halted.”
