Alyssa Milano boasts of her two abortions: ‘My life would be completely lacking all its great joys’

Alyssa Milano proudly boasted about her two abortions she obtained in 1993, touting how they shaped her life.

“In 1993, I had two abortions,” Milano said during her latest of her podcast “Sorry Not Sorry.” “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.”

Despite being on the birth control, Milano admitted that she still got pregnant, which caused a great deal of emotion in her due to her Catholic background. She did know, however, that 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.”

Milano admitted that the choice to obtain an abortion was not “something I wanted” but rather “something that I needed — like most healthcare is.” After the first abortion, Milano went back on the pill and resumed her sexual relationship again, which resulted in yet another pregnancy.

“A few months later I found out I was pregnant again,” she said. “Once again I made the right decision to end the pregnancy.”

“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 continued. “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.”

While Milano never mentions him by name, the Who’s Your Boss co-star fell in love with actor Scott Wolf in 1993 while making Double Dragon, resulting in an engagement and them living together.

Milano said her reasons to obtain an abortion are similar to other women. “They are ours — and they none of your f**king business,” she said.

Milano’s admission about having an abortion in her early twenties stands in line with other actresses who recently admitted to having abortions at a young age in response to the pro-life bills being passed in states like Georgia and Alabama.

“I had an abortion when I was fifteen years old, and I’m telling you this because I’m genuinely really scared for women and girls all over this country,” actress Busy Philipps said on her E! show.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made,” said actress Jameela Jamil. “Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel.”
