Alyssa Milano had two abortions in the same year.
The 46-year-old actress opened up about the decision to have the procedures after finding herself pregnant twice in 1993, when she was in her twenties.
Speaking on her podcast "Sorry not Sorry", she explained: "In 1993, I had two abortions. 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."
Alyssa explained that she was on the pill because she was "not ready to be a parent" and she was also taking the controversial acne medicine Accutane, which can cause birth defects in pregnancies.
She said: "I still got pregnant (despite using birth control). 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.
