Pro-choice Hollywood icon Jane Honda — and the liberal activist whose name still draws a hiss from Vietnam veterans and military supporters — dropped a bombshell during a speech before a Beverly Hills rape victims’ charity crowd, referring to a recent report she read about her mother and her mother’s many abortions.

Ms. Fonda referred to a medical report she came across about her mother, Frances, who committed suicide, Life News reported.

The actress said that after she read the full report, “everything fell into place” about her mother’s promiscuous past and manic-depressive behaviors, she said, the media outlet reported.

“I knew [the reason for] the promiscuity, the endless plastic surgery, the guilt, the inability to love or be intimate, and I was able to forgive her and forgive myself,” she said, LifeNews reported.

What was it?

Ms. Fonda, 76, revealed that her mother had been sexually abused from the age of 8 and also had nine abortions in her lifetime, LifeNews reported.

LifeNews, meanwhile, cited a 2003 study from the British Medical Journal that found that women who had abortions were seven times more likely to kill themselves than women who actually went through with the birth.
