The wave of pro-life laws in both the states of Georgia and Alabama has triggered Hollywood actresses into a collective panic. When they're not proposing sex strikes or boycotts, they're shouting their abortions. "Resident Evil" star Milla Jovovich injected herself into the mix on Tuesday in an Instagram post in which she revealed her "horrific" encounter with abortion while filming on location in Eastern Europe.

 

According to Jovovich, she went "through an emergency abortion" two years ago when she was four and a half months pregnant. While not specifying exactly why she had to get an abortion, she remembers having to be awake for the whole procedure and her fear that women will have to get abortions in conditions far worse than the one she endured.

"I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago," Jovovich said in her post. "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."

The "Resident Evil" star then described experiencing one of the "worst depressions of my life" while not exactly describing the origin of this depression. Was it shame from the abortion? Was it the trauma? She did not go into detail, though it most likely stemmed from the trauma of being awake.

 

"I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out," she said. "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 every day because I didn’t want to jump into taking antidepressants unless I had tried every other alternative."

 

Rather than seeing her example as an argument against abortion, Jovovich said that "so much is at stake" if states continue to pass laws curtailing abortion "rights."

Other actresses have used the Georgia and Alabama laws to share their past experiences with abortion, including Busy Phillips and Jameela Jamil.

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.

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
