In 2020, Meadow Walker said, she came forward about the “crippling” abortion she underwent.
On Friday, in the wake of the US Supreme Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade, the 23-year-old child of late “Fast and the Furious” star Paul Walker announced the news on Insta.
“Like you, I struggled with the decision, but in 2020, while the society was crumbling during the epidemic, I requested an abortion,” she said.
She said, “Today represents a significant defeat in history—a great disservice to women all across the US” Many women have battled with the choice to undergo an abortion.
According to Meadow, who wed artist Louis Thornton-Allan back in 2021, the ceremony was “extremely intimate and personal… the way it should be.”
Meadow’s Experience Was Private And Personal
The model said, “I was fortunate to have a terrific doctor who helped me through the painful process; with their guidance, I am allowed to achieve the healthy and happy individual I am now.”
It breaks my heart to think that even more women will be denied the right to have safe abortions and the autonomy to put their own bodies first.
And according to Meadow, the Supreme Court‘s contentious ruling was like an “attack” on women.
She closed her piece by saying, “Banning abortion does not prevent abortions, it stops safe abortions.”
Minutes after Meadow shared her tale, several supporters flooded the comment thread to express their gratitude.
“How wonderful, meaningful, and heartfelt! One of your followers replied, “Thank you for telling your tale,” while another wrote, “Thank you for telling us your story these are terrible and uncertain/ frightening as hell times.” Let us keep up the good fight, shall we?
In the United States, abortion has been legal for over half a century on the basis that a person has a constitutionally protected right to make medical and personal decisions about her own body.
