In the face of the United States Supreme Court's decision to strike down Roe v.

Wade, who constitutionally guaranteed the right to abortion across the Atlantic since 1973, Laura Prepon decided to talk about her own voluntary termination of pregnancy and the reasons that led her to make this choice.

"One of the worst days of my life was when I made the choice to terminate my pregnancy in the second trimester," the

Orange is the New Black

star wrote in an Instagram post, captioning a photo of her in front of a cloudy sky crossed by a rainbow.

“The devastating truth was that we discovered that the fetus would not have survived to term and my survival was also at risk.

At that time, I had a choice.


An impossible decision

With this testimony, Laura Prepon intends above all to remind that abortion is never a choice made lightly.

"Everyone has their own story that explains the need for this medical procedure and I sympathize with anyone who has faced this impossible decision," the actress continued.

“I pray for each of us that we can get through this challenging time and regain control of our own bodies.
