Thursday afternoon’s The Cycle plugged the recently released “abortion rom-com” Obvious Child by interviewing the film’s screenwriter and director Gillian Robespierre and lead actress Jenny Slate.
After the hosts spent a couple minutes praising the way in which the film portrayed a “positive, safe, shame-free abortion,” co-host Krystal Ball took the liberty of asking the director if there was ever a point where she felt nervous for her “physical safety” citing the sometimes “violent” nature of anti-abortion activists.
Robespierre seemed rather uninterested in the idea that she was ever in danger of a “violent” reaction that may come from the Right. Instead she talked about how as a film maker you fear more about your movie actually being well done and liked to which Ball replied, “No worries. [You] [a]ccomplished both of those.”
