Minka Kelly Reveals Her Abortion Story Amid Anti-Abortion Legislation

Minka Kelly has come forward to reveal that she had an abortion when she was younger.

“When I was younger I had an abortion. It was the smartest decision I could’ve made, not only for myself & my boyfriend at the time, but also for this unborn fetus,” Minka, 38, wrote on her Instagram. “For a baby to’ve been born to two people — too young and completely ill equipped — with no means or help from family, would have resulted in a child born into an unnecessary world of struggle. Having a baby at that time would have only perpetuated the cycle of poverty, chaos and dysfunction I was born into.”

She continued, “Forcing a child to be born to a mother who isn’t ready, isn’t financially stable, was raped, a victim of incest (!!), isn’t doing that theoretical child any favors. For those of you insisting abortion is murder, and to Rep. Terri Collins who said ‘an unborn baby is a person who deserves love and attention’ — forget bringing up the mother might be in need of some ‘love and attention.’ What do you think happens to these kids who end up bouncing around in foster care, live on government assistance because the mother has no help, can’t afford childcare while she works a minimum wage job, and is trapped in a cycle of trying to survive on the meager government assistance so many of you same pro-lifers are determined to also take away.”

“If you insist on forcing women to carry to term, why do you refuse to talk about comprehensive sex-ed, the maternal mortality rate, free daycare, paid maternity leave?
Our lives, traumas & family planning is for no one to decide but us. Certainly not a group of old white men,” Minka added.

Minka posted this to her Instagram account, and received support from celebrities including Mandy Moore, January Jones, Lena Waithe and more. Minka told her story amid anti-abortion laws that are being enacted in a number of states.
