Alyssa Milano is no stranger to stirring up a raucous with her aggressive pro-choice agenda.
After rallying a celebrity crew behind her earlier this year, Milano spearheaded an effort to boycott Georgia for signing its heartbeat bill into law, stripping the state from $10 billion in Hollywood revenue.
She has since been very vocal on social media in an attempt to normalize abortion, and even went as far as to use a Bible verse to justify the heinous procedure.
This week on her Sorry Not Sorry podcast, the former “Charmed” actress again raised eyebrows when she shared her own abortion story.
“If I hadn’t opted for two abortions in 1993 ‘my life would be completely lacking all its great joys’ today,” said Milano. “I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”
“I was not equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion,” she explained. “I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me.”
She claimed that if it weren’t for her decision to terminate those pregnancies in her 20s, she wouldn’t have married her husband Dave Bugliari or have the daughter and son she gave birth to in 2011 and 2014, respectively.
Understandably, her claim that keeping her babies would have robbed her of all her “great joys” ignited quite the backlash across the web. So much so, that one Southern California pastor decided to start a social media movement in response to it.
Jarrid Wilson, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship, tweeted a response to Milano saying, “Everyone should post a picture of their kids and use the hashtag #greatjoys.”
