In a disturbingly selfish but honest admission, British actress Jameela Jamil said she aborted her unborn baby because her life “matters more than an unborn human.”
Eastern Eye reports Jamil (“The Good Place,” “How to Build a Girl”) shared her abortion story recently when she criticized Texas for its new heartbeat law.
The pro-life legislation went into effect Sept. 1, prohibiting abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, and pro-life leaders say as many as 3,000 babies have been saved from violent abortion deaths so far.
Jamil slammed the abortion ban, claiming “hatred” and “control” of women are behind it.
“I am disgusted by Texas,” she said. “This is not about children. We can’t even feed the children who are here. This is about control. This is about abuse. This is about a hatred of women’s freedom and progress.”
However, she contradicted herself when she admitted that an abortion also involves the life of an “unborn human,” a child.

Jamil said she had an abortion at eight weeks of pregnancy. She said she became pregnant even though she was using two types of birth control at the time, according to the report.
“I was mentally, physically, emotionally and financially unstable and most importantly did not want a child,” she said. “That should be enough. My life matters more than an unborn human.”
The actress said she never regretted aborting her unborn baby even for a minute.
“I only felt deep relief and gratitude that I lived in a country (England) that made abortion accessible and safe,” she said. “Nobody made me feel bad for being there.”
The Independent reports Jamil also bashed the U.S. health care system, claiming it is “laughable … that this is happening in a country with no free healthcare or support for parents.”
But Texas is supporting parents, as are other pro-life states. When Texas passed the heartbeat law this spring, state lawmakers also increased support for programs that help pregnant and parenting mothers and babies. Pro-life groups also run thousands of pregnancy centers, maternity homes and other charities across the U.S. that provide free health care and other support to pregnant and parenting mothers and their children.
Jamil was correct about one thing. Her abortion – like every abortion – killed an innocent human being, her own child. At the moment of conception, a unique, living human being comes into existence, complete with their own separate DNA, which already has determined their hair and eye colors, their sex and numerous other traits.
What Jamil got wrong was that some human beings are less valuable than others. That notion always takes society down a dangerous path where human beings are dehumanized, stripped of their rights, abused and killed, and these atrocities are justified in the name of the greater good.
Legalized abortion has killed nearly 63 million unborn babies in the U.S. since 1973. Some day, pro-lifers believe abortion will be recognized and mourned as one of the greatest human rights abuses of all time.
