“I am extremely proud of the fact that I had an abortion. I am able to live the life I always imagined for myself because of abortion. So my abortion story in extremely joyful. I get to live in the best city in the world and pursue the career I have in comedy because of abortion. I have so much love for abortion, it makes me literally jump for joy.
It feels wonderful to be able to fight for reproductive rights by simply telling my story. It’s such a simple act, but it makes me feel extremely powerful. I get to write the narrative around my abortion, only me. Abortion deserves to be front and center, and I’m gunna show it off!”
Molly Gaebe and co-creator Sally Rashid were 2020 winners of Laughter Lab’s competitive incubation program for their work, Darling, a dark comedy about the last remaining abortion clinic in a town of the same name.
