Alyssa Milano Explains Why She Had 2 Abortions in 1993: My Reasons ‘Are Real’

Honesty hour. Alyssa Milano revealed she had two abortions in 1993 and opened up about the “real” reasons behind her decisions.

“I was in love for the first time, in the breathless way you can only be in love when you are young,” the actress, 46, explained on a recent episode of her “Sorry Not Sorry” podcast. “It was huge, overwhelming even. It filled every part of living. And it was a joyful and exciting and powerful time in my life.”

The Insatiable star was on birth control when she and her then-boyfriend conceived a child but were “not ready to be parent.” Milano was also on acne medication “likely to cause birth defects.”

“I knew at that time, I was not equipped to be a mother,” the New York native explained. “And so I chose to have an abortion. I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me. It was not an easy choice. It was not something I wanted, but it was something that I needed, like most health care is.”

The Charmed alum added, “They tell you the pill is 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancies and yet, a few months later, I found out I was pregnant again. So I had done what I knew to do to prevent pregnancy and was still pregnant. So once again I made the right decision to end that pregnancy.”

Milano went on to welcome Milo, 7, and Elizabella, 4, with her husband, David Bugliari — and said that she “would not have” her family if she hadn’t decided to have those abortions.

“I would not have my children, my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind and inquisitive children who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said. “I would not have my career. I would not have the ability or platform I use to fight against oppression with all my heart. I would never have met my amazing husband, David. … 15 years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys.”


I guess her first two aborted children would definitely NOT have been "perfect, loving,kind and inquisitive."

Her first two children will NEVER have careers,a "platform" or an amazing spouse. Gosh it's such a burden to be unwanted by the woman who conceived you.

I know abortion is still legal and women will find a way to get them even if they are made illegal. But for God's sake, STOP calling it "health care". Health care involves taking care of your OWN health and well being, not eliminating someone else's.

Her two aborted children were not so healthy after being ripped to pieces and thrown in the garbage.

I have the complete Charmed series but I can't stomach watching it anymore because I'd have to look at her smug,selfish face.


I can't watch anything with Alysaa Milano anymore but I have to remind myself that she is not unique at all in this regard. She's just one of the few actresses who has admitted to it. Despite all the "pro choice" advocacy that exists amongst most of these Hollyweird tramps, deep down they know it's wrong and keep the stories of their aborted children as their secret shame.


Its laughable to me she uses her acne medication as an excuse, like heaven forbid she could ever stop using it and get a bit of acne while pregnant. I agree there´s a lot that are convicted and shamed by their abortions but its still crazy to me that these days, some celebs take pride in killing their unborn babies.


She's couldn't afford birth control pills.

Does she ever wonder about this I wonder?

A close friend of mine and his wife had an abortion while they were still in high school. They ended up getting married when they graduated three years later and are still married, have three kids now adults, and are very happy as a couple.

But my buddy is forever wistful when he wonders what his son or daughter would have been like, particularly when he held his son for the first time. The guilt is something they carried then and will until they die.

Adoption was not an "option" for them because it was the 1970s stigma of having a child out of wedlock that motivated their parents to "force" the situation. This happened three years before I met them. They are both firmly pro-life now.


A shame that she's apparently loves abortion so much that she chose to advertise it instead of quietly keeping it her secret shame like 99% of the Hollyweird slut actresses. Hollyweird has a degenerate culture & this is abortion business is standard for actresses who in reality abort their unwanted children about as common as changing their tampons. You think women in Hollyweird are somehow less sexually active and more careful with contraceptive with the general population? No? Then it's pretty self explanatory why you virtually never hear about actresses having pregnancies that are "inconvenient" career & relationship-wise.


Calm down guys. Why the fuss?

All she did was kill two babies.

Let it go.


I hope she likes getting breast cancer in a few years. Each abortion a woman has raises her chances of breast cancer by 35%. I'm amazed the kids she had recently weren't born with brain problems, though that might have happened anyway, considering the dumbass bimbo who birthed them.

What would be real justice, is if a real witch with magic cast a spell on her, and she had nightmares about the two children she helped murder because she didn't want them when she was a younger, stupid slut. Each night, she could be haunted in her dreams by the kids they would have been, and they'd ask her over and over again, why she didn't want them, why didn't she love them, why did she allow her later kids to live, and not them. Then, when she reaches the peak of her insanity, she can experience in her nightmares what it was like for the two of them when they were killed and pulled out of her uterus in the operating room, including the pain and terror they felt.
