Jameela Jamil has spoken about her abortion for the first time

Georgia in the US has changed it's abortion laws.

It has now become illegal in almost all cases to have an abortion in the state, as the Senate approved the law by 25 votes to six, rejecting exemptions for cases of rape or incest.


Jameela Jamil took to Twitter last night to criticise the new move, and in the process revealed that she had an abortion when she was younger.

She slammed the new laws saying that it demonstrates the "hatred of women."

She wrote: "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."

In a second tweet, she continued: "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.

"The anti-abortion law is also especially targeted at those without the means/ability to move state. Women who are marginalized, poor or disabled will, as ever, be the ones to suffer the most. The wealthy will have so much more freedom."
