In light of the recent Roe v Wade ruling in the US, model Meadow Walker has shared her abortion experience.
Last week, the ruling which protected abortion as a federal right in the US was overturned, meaning that each US state will have to decide whether to restrict or band abortion.
Following this, Meadow who is the daughter of the late Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, revealed that she had an abortion back in 2020, describing the verdict as a "profound injustice to women across the United States".
“Today marks a huge setback in history- a profound injustice to women across the United States", Meadow wrote via Instagram. “There are countless women who have struggled with making the decision 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. It is a very private and personal experience – the way it should be", she added.
“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. Now, knowing even more women won’t have the opportunity to seek safe termination and choose their bodies first is absolutely heartbreaking".
“In a world that constantly marginalizes females, this feels like the biggest assault of them all. Banning abortion doesn’t prevent abortions, it prevents safe abortions".
