With the recent decision to overturn Roe V. Wade, there is no longer the federal constitutional right to abortion that had been in place for nearly 50 years. This takes away a woman’s ability to make decisions about her own body in many states across the country. The reaction to this decision by the Supreme Court has been met with much anger, disappointment and sadness. It also highlighted the stories of women from all walks of life who made the decision to have an abortion because it was best for where they were at some point in their lives. This includes well-known women. If they hadn’t had the opportunity to make that choice for themselves, their lives would have been very different.

Many famous women have opened up about their experiences, whether in books, interviews or on social media. A woman has shared her decision-making experience on reality TV. See, in their own words, their stories, how they came to their decision and how they felt about it, and their strength.
