Polly Bergenby Carder

Sad to hear of the passing of Polly Bergen – an unforgettable talent and a beloved friend of Planned Parenthood.

~ Planned Parenthood’s Twitter feed on the death of post-abortive singer/actress Polly Bergen. According to Yahoo! TV, her publicist, Judy Katz, announced that “in lieu of flowers, her family is asking that donations be made to Planned Parenthood.”

Added the LA Times:

Bergen also was an ardent feminist, campaigning for the Equal Rights Amendment and women’s reproductive rights. She spoke publicly about having had an illegal abortion when she was a 17-year-old band singer - a procedure that she said prevented her from bearing children for the rest of her life.
