9/21/12 — The new tell-all book that Monica Lewinsky is currently writing will reportedly share more details on the abortion she had of the baby she says she conceived during the time in which she had an affair with President Bill Clinton.
Lewinsky became infamous in 1998 when she told a grand jury investigating Clinton that she had nine sexual encounters with him in the Oval Office between November 1995 and March 1997. She previously disclosed the abortion in her 1999 biography “Monica’s Story,” co-authored with Andrew Morton, but she didn’t reveal many extensive details about it.
When Lewinsky first admitted the abortion in conjunction with the 1999 book, the BBC reported on it and provided more details:
Monica Lewinsky was left deeply traumatized by having an abortion during her affair with President Clinton, her biography has revealed. The former White House intern was so depressed that she underwent lengthy therapy to try to come to terms with the termination.
