Alyssa Milano: ‘We Are All Pro-Life but There Are Circumstances that We Cannot Avoid’
MILANO: "I don’t think there’s a human on the planet that’s not pro-life. Nobody wants to get an abortion. Nobody. We are all pro-life. But there are circumstances that we cannot avoid. There’s a mother’s health. There’s just not being ready, you know, and what that means financially and for someone’s destiny. This is an economic issue. Just because there are women that don’t believe in abortion, don’t take away someone else’s right. And I have to also say that this will affect the communities of color more than anything, okay? This is — I feel like any woman of privilege that lives in one of these states, if this goes through, they’re going to be able to travel to a state to get a safe reproductive health care. But for the women of color, for the women that are marginalized, for the women that are low income communities, the women that are most at risk, these bills will be catastrophic. And just because something is — look at yesterday. What happened yesterday? A 40-year precedent was overturned in the Supreme Court. There’s no telling that that won’t happen with Roe V. Wade. Susan Collins, God love her, she said, 'I believe that Roe V. Wade was actually settled.' Well, a precedent was unsettled yesterday after 40 years."
