#MeToo activist, actress, and controversy addict Rose McGowan revealed that she had an abortion in a tweet this week. Now, before we jump on Rose’s shaved head and start glaring at her for seemingly publicly thrusting herself into a charged issue that will get her into someone’s newsfeed because that’s her schtick, it should be noted that Rose’s tweet was in support of a pro-choice tweet from feminist group UltraViolet Action. And at least she didn’t turn her hearing aid down to tone deaf and publicly wish she had had an abortion unlike certain OTHER controversy addicts who shouldn’t be allowed to have pets. Ever. Take note, ASPCA. Oh, right, about why Rose got an abortion.
UV Action tweeted that 1 in 4 women has had an abortion by age 45.

60% are already mothers.
Abortion is common, normal, and safe, but anti-choice politicians want you to believe otherwise in hopes of ending safe, legal abortion access. #HowDareYou

Rose Retweeted and included details about her own experience (via People), noting that she was “not ashamed.”
I have had an abortion and I support this message. I am not ashamed, nor should you be. That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot- they understand more than anyone. I was on birth control and it failed. I realized I could not bring a child- https://t.co/1htbtTROcU

#HonestAbortion spurred Twitter convo with many women telling their own stories, along with some pro-life trolls (mostly men) doing the troll thing (these were mostly men) and trolling out (men who, last time we checked, didn’t have uteruses).
As Page Six (of all publications) notes, Rose’s tweet is timely seeing as “legislation for late-term procedures and protection of failed abortion survivors has been introduced in Washington, DC.” Even our president waddled into it and recently spoke out of his wig and accused the opposing party of not minding “executing babies after birth.”.
As someone who has never been in danger of getting my sexual partners pregnant (refer back to the part about men not having uteruses), I’m compelled to say that if there was ever the SLIGHTEST danger of pregnancy in my situation, I’d have three rubbers on, at least one femi-dom inserted in my partner, confirmation of an IUD, and some sponges on deck. And maybe I’d have a vasectomy beforehand. Me <—– life-long uncle, thank you.
