Actress Lena Dunham took to Instagram late Tuesday to apologize for saying she wishes that she had undergone an abortion procedure in order to combat the “stigma” around the issue.

“My latest podcast episode was meant to tell a multifaceted story about reproductive choice in America, to explain the many reasons women do or don't choose to have children and what bodily autonomy really means,” Dunham wrote. “I'm so proud of the medley of voices in the episode. I truly hope a distasteful joke on my part won't diminish the amazing work of all the women who participated.”
