Kyle Sandilands talked about abortion this morning. And he made a lot of sense.

Kyle Sandilands is suddenly making sense to us. What’s happening to the world?

On this morning’s edition of The Kyle and Jackie O Show, the KIIS FM shock-jock not only revealed that he is pro-choice, but also that he once paid for an ex-girlfriend’s abortion.

Sandilands’ comments came during a segment inspired by US presidential candidate Donald Trump’s assertion that there should be “some form of punishment” for women who abort a pregnancy.

Kyle wasn’t impressed: “You’re on your own there, Donald.” he said. “I believe a woman can do whatever she pleases.”

The hosts opened the question of abortion punishment up to their audience, and it actually sparked a surprisingly meaty debate around who ought to absorb the cost of the procedure.

“Why is it always the girl paying?” asked Kyle. “It’s our fault.”

One anonymous caller, who said she works at an abortion clinic, confirmed that the emotional and financial cost is nearly always shouldered by the woman.

“There’s a huge fee,” she said, stating that it generally costs upwards of $490.

“Yeah, I know” responded Kyle. “I’ve paid for it before” (though he said that he’d previously paid three times that).

A spokesperson for the show was quick to clarify to Daily Mail Australia that Sandilands’ statement was not referring to his current girlfriend, Imogen Anthony (pictured above).
