“I didn’t have just one abortion; I had two in the same year, impregnated by the same guy,” Handler wrote. “I didn’t have the money the second time. I had to scrape together the $230 to pay Planned Parenthood, but it was a safe abortion.”

“When I agreed to write an article on a woman’s right to choose, I certainly wasn’t bragging,” Handler tweeted Tuesday. “I chose to tell the truth.”

Her fans were quick to criticize her. (RELATED: Chelsea Handler: ‘Being Politically Correct Isn’t Working For America’)
