Halsey Weighs In On Roe v. Wade: ‘Abortion Saved My Life’

Following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Halsey opened up about her own experience with miscarriage, abortion, and how the procedure saved her life.

“I miscarried three times before my 24th birthday. It seemed a cruel irony that I could get pregnant with ease but struggled to maintain a pregnancy,” they told Vogue. “One of my miscarriages required ‘aftercare,’ a gentle way of saying that I would need an abortion because my body could not terminate the pregnancy completely on its own, and I would risk going into sepsis without medical intervention.”

Halsey added, “During this procedure, I cried. I was afraid for myself and I was helpless. I was desperate to end the pregnancy that was threatening my life.”

Halsey also published an essay about reproductive rights.

“Many people have asked me if, since carrying a child to term after years of struggling to do so, I have reconsidered my stance on abortion. The answer is firmly no. In fact, I have never felt more strongly about it. My abortion saved my life and gave way for my son to have his. Every person deserves the right to choose when, if, and how they have this dangerous and life-altering experience. I will hold my son in one arm, and fight with all my might with the other.”
