Whoopi Goldberg

In an essay for Angela Bonavoglia’s The Choices We Made, she wrote about her adolescent abortion experience. The letter was written in this format. She wrote, “I found out I was pregnant when I was fourteen.” “I didn’t get a period this time. I didn’t speak to anyone. I was in a panic. I sat in steaming baths. I drank these bizarre mixtures that girls told me about, like Johnny Walker Red mixed with a little Clorox, alcohol, baking soda (which saved my stomach), and some sort of cream. You jumbled everything up. I became quite unwell. I was more terrified of having to explain what was wrong to anyone at the time than of going to the park with a hanger, which is exactly what I did.”
