EXCLUSIVE: Lindsay Defends Her Decision to Get an Abortion on ‘You’re the Worst’ Finale: ‘My Body, My Choice!’
You’re the Worst is tackling yet another vital social issue in its season three finale.
The critically acclaimed FXX dramedy is set to air an extended episode on Wednesday, and it will address the repercussions of Lindsay’s (Kether Donohue) decision to get an abortion without telling her husband Paul (Allen McLeod).
“What you did was unspeakable! Unconscionable! Indefensible!” an enraged Paul yells to a practically naked Lindsay in Jimmy’s living room in ET’s exclusive first look video, above.
“It wasn’t a baby, Paul,” Lindsay explains. “It was just a bunch of cells.”
“What made you think you have the right to make that decision for us?” Paul demanded after claiming that Lindsay “destroyed” their family.
But Lindsay has a short, yet succinct response to defend her actions: “My body, my choice,” she says.
Lindsay then gifts viewers with a slightly — OK, massively — skewed history lesson about abortions. “Me and my sisters, we fought for this right for milleniums,” she says confidently. “This is why Margaret Thatcher went to prison.”
