Actress and abortion advocate Alyssa Milano revealed last week that she struggled with feelings of guilt after having two abortions in her twenties, believing two miscarriages were a result of her abortions and later fearing that her children might be hurt for “karmic” reasons.

“I definitely had this moment of, ‘Well, I’m being punished,’ basically for abortions in my twenties,” Milano told “Me Becoming Mom” podcast host Zoë Ruderman, Today reported.

“It took a while in therapy to realize that that was something that I was putting on myself,” the 48-year-old added.

The “Charmed” actress also disclosed that she had fears that something bad might happen to her children Milo and Elizabeth due to her decision to have two children killed in utero.

“I always felt like, ‘What if something happens to these two little beings that I love so much? And is there a world in which they’re taken away from me for whatever karmic resolution needed to happen?’”

Milano revealed in 2019 that she had two abortions in one year, back in 1993.

“In 1993, I had two abortions,” Milano shared, according to USAToday. “I was in love for the first time, in the breathless way you can only be in love when you are young. It was huge. … It filled every part of living. It was a joyful and exciting and powerful time in my life.”

The actress said she wanted to focus on her career and was “not ready to be a parent” and “wasn’t equipped to be a mother.”

“It was devastating. I was raised Catholic and was suddenly put in conflict with my faith. … I had a career and a future and potential. And also, I suffered from sometimes crippling anxiety.”

“I chose to have an abortion,” Milano said. “I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me. It was not an easy choice. It was not something I wanted but it was something I needed – like most health care is.”

Mere months after she had the child terminated, she found out she was pregnant again. And, again, she chose to have the baby killed.

“Once again I made the right decision to end the pregnancy.”

Showing some disconnect with her recent admissions, Milano in 2019 credited her past abortions for allowing her to have her two children Milo and Elizabeth.

“I would not have my children – my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind and inquisitive children – who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said.

Thanks to the abortions, Milano emphasized, she was able to have her “career” and build her “platform,” which she uses to promote abortion.

“I would not have my career. I would not have the ability or platform I use to fight against oppression with all my heart. … I would never had been free to be myself – and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
