Jameela Jamil Reflects On Her Abortion

Jameela Jamil has opened up about having an abortion when she was younger, saying it was the "best decision" she has ever made.

The actress was commenting on a controversial abortion law that was recently passed in the state of Georgia, outlawing most terminations once a foetal heartbeat is detected.

She wrote on Twitter: "This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist ... 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 ... Ps.. this isn't any diss at ALL to foster homes. I'm in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all."
