OINTB actress Laura Prepon: abortion saved my life | Stars

“One of the worst days of my life was when I made the decision to terminate my pregnancy in the second trimester,” writes Laura, who plays Alex Vause in the Netflix series. “The heartbreaking truth was that we found out that our baby would not survive and that my life would also be in danger. We could then make the choice ourselves.”

A majority of the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that the ruling in the Roe vs. Wade, who lays down the right to abortion, is rejected. The new legislation allows states to decide for themselves whether or not an abortion is allowed there. “Everyone has their own story when it comes to this subject and I sympathize with everyone who is faced with this difficult choice,” said Laura. “I pray for all of us to get through this challenging time together and regain control of our own bodies.”
