Laura Prepon told how the abortion “saved her life” after discovering her unborn baby would not survive and could also be in danger to her life.
Orange is the new black star Laura, 42, candidly shares her experience with abortion, after complications in 2018, when she scripted Roe vs Wade in the US.
The law was passed last week, meaning many US states will be allowed to restrict or ban abortions on Friday.
According to the abortion news, after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Mississippi’s 15-week ban on abortions, Laura opened up about having to abort.
She explained that although having an abortion in 2018 was “the worst day of her life” she was “grateful to have had a choice” that saved her life.
Laura, who has two children with husband Ben Foster, shared a photo of herself standing in front of a rainbow on her Instagram and candidly shared with 9.2 million fans her own experience.
When she posted the picture on Monday, she wrote with the caption: “One of the worst days of my life was when I made the choice to have a second trimester abortion.
“The devastating truth is that we found out the fetus wouldn’t survive to full term and my life was also at risk. At that point – I had a choice.” [sic]
Laura added: “Everybody has their own story when searching for this medical procedure and I empathize with anyone who is facing this impossible decision. [sic]
“I’m praying for all of us, that we can get through this challenging time and regain agency over our own bodies.”

Laura is one of many stars who have spoken out against the law change in the US, with Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo making the decision during their performance at the Glastonbury Festival over the weekend.
As 20-year-old Billie prepared to sing Your Power during a sensational performance on the Pyramid stage, she told festival-goers: “Today is a really, really dark day for me. women in America
“I was just going to say it because I can’t bear to think about it anymore.”
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Olivia takes Lily Allen to sing Lily’s F**k You song before the Supreme Court.
When introducing her special guest to the stage, Olivia said: “I am devastated and horrified and so many women and girls will die from this.
“And I want to dedicate this follow-up song to the five members of the Supreme Court who showed us at the end of the day what they really didn’t think was *** about freedom.”
Empire actress Taraji P Henson also spoke out against the ruling as she hosted the BET Awards.
Speaking in her opening monologue, the 51-year-old said: “It’s time we stepped into our power. It’s time we talked about the fact that guns have more rights than women.
“It’s a sad day in America. A weapon that can take life has more power than a woman can give life if she wants. It’s time for me to take it off.”
