Jameela Jamil is speaking up and speaking out.
Following news of Georgia's new abortion ban, The Good Place actress took to Twitter yesterday evening to share a deeply personal experience.
"I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made," the 33-year-old wrote. "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."
In a follow-up message, she clarified her original statement. "Ps…this isn't any diss at ALL to foster homes," she said. "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."
