    Jane Fonda Floats 'Murder' as Response to Abortion Laws


    Actress Jane Fonda on Friday created controversy by saying she had "thought of murder" during a discussion on abortion laws in the United States.

    The Oscar-winner made the remark during an appearance with her Grace and Frankie co-star Lily Tomlin on ABC's The View when the topic of protesting the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was brought up.

    In June, the Supreme Court released a ruling that overturned the nearly 50-year-old decision of Roe v. Wade that protected a pregnant woman's right to have an abortion. Following news of the ruling, large crowds gathered to protest in Washington, D.C. and in cities throughout the country. The Court's decision also resulted in so-called trigger laws on abortion policies going into effect in several states. More recently, the fight has shifted to access to abortion pills.

    The View co-host Joy Behar asked Fonda what else she would suggest for people who disagree with the Court's decision aside from marching and protesting.

    "Well, I've thought of murder," Fonda said.

    When Tomlin asked her co-star to repeat herself, Fonda replied: "Murder."

    Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) said Hollywood icon Jane Fonda and The View hosts “need to be held accountable” for suggesting that pro-abortion rights women could use "murder" as a solution to win back control over their bodies.

    While appearing on The View on Friday, Fonda, 85, told co-host Joy Behar that in addition to marching and protesting against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, “murder” could be an option for activism. The View’s hosts jumped in and claimed the suggestion was a joke.

    No, No.... You see, she was suggesting that we murder them before they're born... All good.

    Seriously, though. It was obviously a inartful jest. Let's not clutch our pearls over this.
