Raunchy pro-abortion “comedian” Lena Dunham is hitting the campaign trail for abortion activist Hillary Clinton. During the Democrat convention, Dunham applauded Clinton for saying abortion should be a human right.
Now the pro-abortion “actress” is urging voters to back Clinton:
The 30-year-old Girls star and showrunner reportedly met with a small group of supporters in Cary on Sunday afternoon to stress the importance of early voting before heading to a panel discussion aimed at millennial voters at Duke University Sunday night.
The panel discussion featured speakers Dunham, Fresh Off the Boat actress Constance Wu, transgender activist and writer Janet Mock, journalist Ashley Ford and comedian Aparna Nancherla. The conversation focused on Clinton’s struggles to attract support among younger voters, according to Duke campus newspaper The Chronicle.
“I do think there’s incredibly unfair bias that we’ve seen with Hillary and her campaign of people trying to hold women accountable for the actions of the men in their lives,” Dunham said while reportedly discussing the media’s treatment of sexual misconduct allegations against Bill Clinton. “Men are not held accountable for the actions of their wives and women should not be held accountable for the actions of their husbands.”
Sunday night’s panel at Duke came just two days after FBI Director James Comey told Congressional leaders that the agency had located tens of thousands of additional emails on another device that may be “pertinent” to its investigation of Clinton earlier this summer.
On Monday, Dunham visited the University of North Carolina for another get out the vote event.

The interview is supposed to sway millennial women to support Clinton in her bid for president in 2016. Clinton’s communications aide, Kristina Schake, explained why the former Secretary of State wanted to meet with Dunham. She said, “Hillary was drawn to Lena’s unique voice, dynamic talent and strong commitment to women’s rights. Hillary and Lena had a strong connection, which comes through in this intimate, engaging interview.”
In the segment, Dunham asks Clinton if she’s a “feminist.”
Clinton responds, “Yes. Absolutely. I’m always a little bit puzzled when any woman of whatever age, but particularly a young woman, says something like, ‘well, I believe in equal rights but I’m not a feminist.’ Well, a feminist is by definition someone who believes in equal rights. I’m hoping that people will not be afraid to say, that doesn’t mean you hate men, it doesn’t you want to separate out the world, so you’re not a part of ordinary life — that’s not what it means at all! It just means that we believe that women have the same rights as men.”
Although Clinton claims to be a feminist, her opposition to even the most modest abortion restrictions shows she’s not considering the ways abortion-on-demand devastates women and their families. Additionally, her support for late-term abortion is unlikely to be popular among younger women since the majority of them are against it in most circumstances.
Dunham, a vocal supporter of pro-abortion politicians, also has made inflammatory remarks in the past. In a December interview, Dunham said she wants to punch ignorant pro-lifers in the face.
In 2012, the young actress also campaigned for pro-abortion President Barack Obama in an ad that compared voting for him to losing her virginity.
