Rita Moreno is sharing her own experience of having an abortion while also raising awareness of the anxieties she has for people who would be pressured into having risky abortions as a result of the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
By a vote of 6 to 3, the Supreme Court on Friday invalidated the historic judgment and repealed the right to an abortion under the Constitution.
When she learned she was pregnant with her then-boyfriend Marlon Brando, Moreno, 90, had an abortion. She then spoke about her experience after making the decision.
According to her statement to Variety on Friday, the West Side Story actress became pregnant before Roe v. Wade’s 1973 decision that guaranteed women the right to an abortion in every state.
According to her account on the site, Brando advised her to have an abortion and helped her “find a doctor through some pals.” “Marlon paid him $500, so he was a legitimate doctor, not just some guy in a back alley,” Marlon said.
She experienced bleeding after returning home, and she later discovered the abortion was not complete.
“To the hospital, Marlon drove me. My pregnancy was “disturbed,” according to what they informed me “Recalling, Moreno. “Apart from making me bleed, the doctor didn’t actually do anything. He did things wrong, to put it another way. I could have died, but I was unaware of this at the time. A complete mess. How awfully chaotic.”

She recalled being “jubilant” when Roe v. Wade first made abortions legal; nevertheless, she now describes herself as “depressed” by the Supreme Court’s ruling.
According the celebrity, Hillary Clinton forewarned the public of this. Although I anticipated it, I’m astonished rather than shocked.
Moreno went on: “The little girls come to mind. Girls who become pregnant as a result of rape or incest are taking it to the nth degree. Although the word “unfair” isn’t strong enough, it is unfair.”
She ended by expressing her readiness “to get involved” with her fellow “loud mouths.”
“Many of us exist. How are we going to handle this, I wonder? We’ve been reinvigorated, if anything.”
With its decision to grant individual states the authority to determine whether to permit the surgery, the Supreme Court’s decision breaks with nearly 50 years of precedent and fundamentally alters the landscape of women’s reproductive rights.
In the following months, it is predicted that nearly half of the nation will enact restrictions that are almost entirely comprehensive.
In light of the judgment, most blue states will now permit abortion while most red states would severely restrict it, dividing the nation.
According to Justice Samuel Alito’s majority decision, “Roe and Casey must be overruled.” No such right is implicitly protected by any fundamental provision, and the Constitution makes no mention of abortion.
The Constitution must be followed, Alito argued, and the matter of abortion must be brought back before the people’s elected officials.
Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch—all of whom were selected by President Trump—supported the 78-page judgment.
