Actress and activist Alyssa Milano said the two abortions she had when she was in her 20s was the “right” decision for her to make at that time in her life.

The 46-year-old mother of two opened up about her abortions this week during the latest episode of her podcast, “Sorry Not Sorry,” revealing that she terminated two pregnancies in 1993 while she was dating someone and actively taking birth control pills.

The first time, Ms. Milano said she knew she was “not equipped to be a mother” so she “chose to have an abortion,” Yahoo reported.

“I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me,” she said.

A short time later, Ms. Milano said she accidentally got pregnant again.

“A few months later, I found out I was pregnant again,” she said. “Once again, I made the right decision to end the pregnancy.”

Ms. Milano said she wouldn’t have her two children now or her career if she hadn’t ended those first pregnancies, and she warned that those rights are now being taken away from others as multiple states adopt new anti-abortion laws.

“I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom,” she said.
