“It was one of the most terrible experience in my life. I still have nightmares”

The authorities of the United States decided to ban the abortion for more than six weeks (during this period, the fetus’s heart begins to beat). This decision caused an uproar among women, protest supported by many celebrities. For example, Mila Jovovich called the bill “draconian” and shared her tragic story on Instagram. The actress admitted that two years ago she had to have an emergency abortion.

“I was 4.5 months pregnant and was just on the set in Eastern Europe. I started a preterm birth, and I said that I must be conscious throughout the procedure. It was one of the most terrible experiences in my life. I still have nightmares, ”Mila shared her memories.

I don’t like to get political and I try to only do it if a really have to and this is one of those times. If someone doesn’t want to continue reading, you have been warned. Our rights as women to obtain safe abortions by experienced doctors are again at stake. Last Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a draconian bill into law that outlaws all abortions after six weeks — before most women even realize they’re pregnant — including in cases of RAPE OR INCEST. This makes Georgia the sixth state to pass such a restrictive six-week abortion ban, joining Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota. These laws haven’t been passed yet, but lawmakers in these states are trying. Abortion is hard enough for women on an emotional level without having to go through it in potentially unsafe and unsanitary conditions. I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns. I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out. I took time off of my career. I isolated myself for months and had to keep a strong face for my two amazing kids. I started gardening, eating healthier and going to the gym everyday because I didn’t want to jump into taking anti depressants unless I had tried every other alternative. Thank God I was able to find my way out of that personal hell without turning to medication, but the memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die. Abortion is a nightmare at its best. No woman wants to go through that. But we have to fight to make sure our rights are preserved to obtain a safe one if we need to. I never wanted to speak about this experience. But I cannot remain silent when so much is at stake. #prochoice #prochoicegeneration

She said that after this incident she fell into one of the worst depressions in her life. 

“I took a break in my career and isolated myself from society for several months to be strong for my two children. I started working in the garden, started going to the gym, eating healthy food, not taking antidepressants.

“Abortion is a nightmare at best. No woman wants to go through this. But we must fight for our rights, for receiving everything we need for our security, ”added Mila.

Recall that now Mila Jovovich, along with her husband Paul Anderson, has two daughters : 11-year-old Eva and four-year-old Dashiel.
