Last year, actor Mark Ruffalo, famous for playing The Hulk and appearing in many other top movies, caused a stir with a column he wrote defending abortion. Ruffalo went further than merely defending legalized abortion — he apologized for and defended his mother getting an illegal abortion of his own sibling.

markruffalo2Now, in a new video specifically recorded for a top pro-abortion group that has taken out numerous pro-life laws protecting women and unborn children with expensive lawsuits, Ruffalo again defends his mother aborting his own sibling in an illegal abortion. Nowhere in the video does Ruffalo talk about other options she could have pursued — such as keeping his brother or sister to placing the child for adoption with a family who could have loved his aborted sibling.

“I recalled a story my mother told me as a teenager about having to go and get an illegal abortion. For my teenage self it was very startling that people wouldhave to search out doctors a night miles and miles away from their home in closed down doctors office or motel room. It just – I couldn’t belive it. And I was appalled by it and I saw the pain it caused my mother,” Ruffalo says.

“I can’t stand aside with two beautiful young girls of my own and accept that we are going to return to those days. It becomes kind of a moral issue about who you are,” Ruffalo says. “As a man I see no wisdom in going backwards.”

His 2-minute video, produced by the pro-abortion Center for Reproductive Rights, follows:



The video follows Ruffalo defending abortion in a conversation with LifeNews earlier this month.
