50-year-old actress Ashley Judd told a horrible story about three rapes and a forced abortion.
Hollywood movie star was invited to the summit “Women in the world”, which took place in new York. Ashley shared a terrible story from her youth:
“Summer of 1984 was very difficult for me. I was twice raped by one adult male. The other was systematically molested me. The second, always molested me in the presence of another man, in case if I want to complain to someone, he had a witness who would confirm that I’m lying. It took me quite some time to recover after these acts of violence, to heal the moral injury and to stop being a helpless, vulnerable victim.”
In his speech, Ashley explained why she is “for” abortion. It is an opportunity to have an abortion saved her from forced to raise a child from the rapist.
“As everyone knows, and I am very Frank, I have said many times that I’ve been through three rapes. One of them resulted in pregnancy. I am very glad to have been able legally to do a safe abortion and I didn’t have to raise a child from my rapist. Because a rapist who, like me, lives in Tennessee, has the right of paternity under the laws of Kentucky and Tennessee. Democracy starts with our body”
– told Judd.
In March, the actress signed a letter Alyssa Milano, in which the protest against the law on justice and equality living babies (LIFE), which was recently passed by the Georgia Senate, reports the New York Times. The document urged the Governor of Georgia Brian Kemp to veto a controversial abortion law — a legislative act that actually prohibits women from having an abortion after six weeks of pregnancy.
The letter also received support from such stars as Debra messing, Mandy Moore, Amy Schumer, Ben Stiller and don Cheadle.

In its lawsuit, Judd claims that rejected unwanted attentions from Weinstein, and in response he tried to destroy her career.
