La actriz Milla Jovovich ha entrado de lleno en el debate por los derechos del aborto, surgido en Georgia por prohibir interrumpir el embarazo pasadas las seis semanas de gestación. Al igual que otros rostros conocidos de Hollywood, la reconocida intérprete se ha posicionado en contra de dicha ley. Jovovich lo ha hecho con un desgarrador relato, en el que cuenta su propia experiencia.

Tal y como ha confesado la propia Milla Jovovich, la actriz sufrió un aborto cuando se encontraba embarazada de cuatro meses y medio.

I don't like to get political and I try to only do it if a really have to and this is one of those times. If someone doesn't want to continue reading, you have been warned. Our rights as women to obtain safe abortions by experienced doctors are again at stake. Last Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed a draconian bill into law that outlaws all abortions after six weeks — before most women even realize they're pregnant — including in cases of RAPE OR INCEST. This makes Georgia the sixth state to pass such a restrictive six-week abortion ban, joining Ohio, Mississippi, Kentucky, Iowa, and North Dakota. These laws haven't been passed yet, but lawmakers in these states are trying. Abortion is hard enough for women on an emotional level without having to go through it in potentially unsafe and unsanitary conditions. I myself went through an emergency abortion 2 years ago. I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and shooting on location in Eastern Europe. I went into pre term labor and told that I had to be awake for the whole procedure. It was one of the most horrific experiences I have ever gone through. I still have nightmares about it. I was alone and helpless. When I think about the fact that women might have to face abortions in even worse conditions than I did because of new laws, my stomach turns. I spiraled into one of the worst depressions of my life and had to work extremely hard to find my way out. I took time off of my career. I isolated myself for months and had to keep a strong face for my two amazing kids. I started gardening, eating healthier and going to the gym everyday because I didn't want to jump into taking anti depressants unless I had tried every other alternative. Thank God I was able to find my way out of that personal hell without turning to medication, but the memory of what I went through and what I lost will be with me till the day I die. Abortion is a nightmare at its best. No woman wants to go through that. But we have to fight to make sure our rights are preserved to obtain a safe one if we need to. I never wanted to speak about this experience. But I cannot remain silent when so much is at stake. #prochoice #prochoicegeneration

Los hechos ocurrieron en 2017 y Jovovich asegura que sigue teniendo pesadillas sobre ese trágico episodio. Jovovich sufrió el aborto mientras se encontraba rodando en Europa y explica que éste ha sido "una de las experiencias más horribles de mi vida".

Milla Jovovich explica en su publicación, con la que pretende concienciar sobre el aborto, que cayó "en una espiral de depresión". Gracias a los otros dos hijos que la actriz tiene con el director Paul W.S. Anderson, pudo salir adelante y ahora saca las fuerzas necesarias para luchar por los derechos de las mujeres.
