“When I made the comment, I think that I misspoke… I said that I thought it would demean the issue of abortion to talk about it on sitcom,” Mindy told HuffPost Live.

She continued to say: “What I should’ve said was my sitcom… Many incredible shows have dealt with it in a way that I really admire. Roseanne is one of them… I should’ve said for now… [Abortion] doesn’t strike me, and I don’t think this is controversial, as the funniest of areas and I run a comedy show. And also, my show… is about a workplace. Our show from the get-go hasn’t made its centerpiece to focus on political issues.”
