Actress Alyssa Milano said that her two abortions helped to make her become the person she is today.
The former Charmed actress said: “In 1993, I had two abortions. I was in love for the first time in the breathless way you can only be in love when you are young. It was huge — overwhelming even. It filled every part of living. It was a joyful and exciting and powerful time in my life.”
She did not mention the name of the man but the Yahoo News noted she “fell in love with actor Scott Wolf that year while making ‘Double Dragon.’” The two even got engaged after they moved in together.
Milano still got pregnant despite being on the birth control. But she knew she was “not equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion. I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me.”
The actress admitted that her choice was not “something I wanted” but “something that I needed – like most healthcare is.”
After the first procedure, Milano resumed her sexual relationship and went back on the pill but she still got pregnant.
“A few months later I found out I was pregnant again. Once again I made the right decision to end the pregnancy,” she expressed.
“I would not have my children — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind an inquisitive children — who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she added. “Fifteen years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys. I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
Milano said her reasons to have an abortion are similar to other women’s. “They are ours — and they none of your f**king business,” she said.
