Shonda Rhimes On 'Scandal' Abortion: 'A Woman Made A Choice About Her Body'
Kerry Washington and the stars of Scandal arrive at the show’s panel during 2016 PaleyFest Los Angeles held at the Dolby Theatre on Tuesday (March 15) in Hollywood.
The 33-year-old actress and her cast members – including Tony Goldwyn, Bellamy Young, Portia de Rossi, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, Joe Morton, Joshua Malina, Cornelius Smith Jr., and creator Shonda Rhimes – discussed the show’s fifth season and spoke about Kerry‘s character Olivia’s decision to get an abortion in a recent episode of the hit ABC series.
“My question is, does he have to?” Shonda responded when a fan asked when Fitz (Tony) will find out about the abortion (via Variety). “A woman made a choice about her body that she legally has the right to make. I haven’t actually decided, but I wonder sometimes. We talk about it a lot.”
FYI: Kerry is wearing an Ulyana Sergeenko dress. Bellamy is wearing a Josie Natori dress paired with a Rodo clutch, Randall Scott Fine Jewelry earrings, Sylva & Cie rings, and Jerome C. Rousseau pumps. Darby is wearing Cesare Paciotti pumps. Katie is wearing a St. John skirt.
