#1 Busy Philipps

The late night talk show host shared on her show Busy Tonight "The statistic is one in four women will have an abortion before age 45, and that statistic sometimes surprises people... well, you know me. I had an abortion when I was 15 years old. And, I'm telling you this because I'm genuinely really scared for women and girls all over this country. I think that we all need to be talking more and sharing our stories more." 

#2 Naya Rivera

The former 'Glee' star published about her abortion in her memoir 'Sorry Not Sorry: Dreams, Mistakes, and Growing Up' "My mother and her niece Evelyn also became involved in everything from counselling women to sterilizing equipment. They were an honourable example of women helping women in their time of need... I knew that in sharing my story, I would be judged for the decision I made. But I wanted to let other women facing the same difficult decision to know that they weren’t alone."

#3 Jameela Jamil

Jameela Jamil expressed in her tweet, "I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel."

#4 Rose McGowan shared her abortion experience to raise awareness

"I have had an abortion and I support this message. I am not ashamed, nor should you be. That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot- they understand more than anyone. I was on birth control and it failed."

#5 Nicki Minaj told Rolling Stone about her abortion she had in her teenage years

"'I thought I was going to die,' [Nicki] admits. 'I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.' She ended up having an abortion, a decision she says has 'haunted me all my life,' though it was the right choice for her at the time. 'It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.'"

#6 Chelsea Handler, the comedian told about her two abortions in one year as a teenager

"My parents recognized [that I shouldn't have a child at 16], so they acted like parents for one of the very first times in my life and took me to Planned Parenthood. I felt parented, ironically, while I was getting an abortion. And when it was over, I was relieved in every possible way." 

#7 Gloria Steinem, the feminist icon wrote in her book ‘My Life On The Road’ about the doctor who helped her have a illegal yet safe abortion in 1957

"Dr. John Sharpe of London, who in 1957, a decade before physicians in England could legally perform an abortion for any reason other than the health of the woman, took the considerable risk of referring for an abortion a twenty-two-year-old American on her way to India."

#8 Whoopi Goldberg, at the most desperate time she terminated her pregnancy with a coat hanger

Goldberg wrote about her abortion "I found out I was pregnant when I was fourteen. I didn't get a period. I talked to nobody. I panicked. At that moment I was more afraid of having to explain to anybody what was wrong than of going to the park with a hanger, which is what I did." 

#9 Stevie Nicks, had an abortion after she had a relationship with The Eagles frontman Don Henley

In an interview, she said, "Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, I would have named her Sara."

#10 Jemima Kirke, The ‘Girls’ actress and activist shared her story to support reproductive rights

"In 2007 I became pregnant with my boyfriend at the time. I wasn't sure that I wanted to be attached to this person for the rest of my life. My life just was not conducive to raising a healthy happy child. I just didn't feel it was fair. So I decided to get an abortion."
