Chelsea Handler published a personal essay in Playboy that's proven controversial, and not just because it was an essay in Playboy. She opened up about having two abortions at the age of 16, and how having the right to make that choice helped get her life on track. Because it was an essay on abortion—not to mention simply a woman speaking her mind in public—she had to defend herself against trolls on Twitter.
When I agreed to write an article on a woman's right to choose, I certainly wasn't bragging. I chose to tell the truth. #shouldbemoreofit— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) June 28, 2016
