Jane Fonda, a Hollywood icon and far-left activist, suggested that abortion-seeking women should not abide by laws. She said they could resort to “murder,” to take control of their bodies during a wild appearance on “The View” on Friday.
Fonda stated, “We have had many decades of agency over our bodies, of being in control of when and how many children we have.” “We know that feeling, we know that it’s been a great influence on our lives.” “We are not going back, no matter what laws, we’re not going back.”
Sonny Hostin smiled and said, “That’s the activist.” Joy Behar responded, “That’s Jane.”
Hostin stated that she was likely to win the Nobel Prize.
Fonda stated, “It’s the truth, We’re gonna fight.”
Behar asked Fonda, 85 years old, what she could do to protest Roe v. Wade’s overturning by the Supreme Court.
“Well, I’ve thought of murder,” Fonda said during cross-talk before her “Grace and Frankie” co-star Lily Tomlin asked her to repeat herself.
“Murder,” Fonda said again as the reliably liberal panel burst into laughter.
“She’s just kidding,” Behar said hastily, before motioning. “Wait a second… They’ll pick up on that and just run with it. She’s just kidding.”
Fonda gave Behar an extended stare, which caused more laughter. It was unclear if Fonda was still laughing. Hostin then awkwardly moved on to discuss Fonda’s activism.
Fonda is a long-standing advocate for the far left. Many veterans of the Vietnam War refer to Fonda as “Hanoi Jane” because she recalls Fonda’s disastrous 1972 trip to North Vietnam when she was photographed riding an anti-aircraft gun that was used to shoot down American pilots. Fonda has since apologized for the incident.
Since Roe v. Wade was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court last year, abortion has been at the forefront of American society.
