This is a surprising admission and even more so that it happened in the secular media. Doubtless the question would never have been asked, in the first place, if her response had been anticipated.
TORONTO, September 19, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Academy Award winning actress Ellen Burstyn known for her roles in ‘Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore’ and ‘The Exorcist’ was interviewed by CFRB radio in Toronto while she was in town promoting her new book - *Lessons in Becoming Myself. *
CFRB spoke at length about the long and eventful career of the highly acclaimed 74-year-old actress after which the interviewer asked Burstyn** “what was the lowest moment” of her life.**
After a pause during which the interviewer prompted with her single motherhood, struggles with her son and more, Burstyn said, “You know, I guess, I hate to talk about this on the air, but having an abortion.”
Pray for the healing of this actress and that more like her will finally break the silence.
