Meadow Walker, daughter of Paul Walker, has spoken out about the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
During the COVID pandemic of 2020, the 23-year-old revealed she had an abortion. Meadow said,
“Today marks a huge setback in history- a profound injustice to women across the United States. Countless women have struggled with deciding to have an abortion. I, too, have battled with the choice, but in 2020, when the world was collapsing during the pandemic, I sought an abortion.”
Meadow believes the decision should be “private and personal.” She made it clear that her decision wasn’t easy,
“I was lucky enough to have a great doctor who supported me through the debilitating process- with their help, I am able to be the happy and healthy person I am today.”
As for the future, Meadow says it looks bleak,
“Now, knowing even more women won’t have the opportunity to seek safe termination and choose their bodies first is heartbreaking. In a world that constantly marginalizes females, this feels like the biggest assault of them all.”
Celebrities like Rita Moreno say she knows what it was like to seek an abortion before 1973 when it became a constitutional right. Then, according to Variety, she became pregnant with Marlon Brando’s child.
In response, he demanded she gets an abortion and found a doctor who would do it for $500. But unfortunately, there was an error in the procedure, and it was incomplete. As a result, she almost died from bleeding excessively.
Currently, most states are either severely restricting or outlawing abortion.
