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.
