The punk singer has nothing but positive things to say about her abortion. "I really credit it as something that changed my life," she explained during an interview with The Rumpus, "because I got a job, I took care of my business, and I moved on. And I'm not one of those people who'd have looked back and been like, Oh, that kid would be 30 right now… I don't think, Oh, I really regret it… Maybe that's a fucked-up thing to say but, I don't regret it at all, number one, and number two, it was one of the best things that happened to me. Not actually being on the table and having it done, but feeling like I was responsible for my own life and realizing that when I made mistakes, there were consequences and that I could take care of those consequences. I could make mistakes and I could fix them. And live with them. It wasn't a big deal."
