As more and more states pass laws effectively banning abortion, Jameela Jamil reveals she had one and has no regrets

Jameela Jamil isn’t exactly known for backing down from a worthy fight. The Good Place actress is outspoken on social media against sexism, racism, societal beauty standards, fat shaming — basically she’s constantly fighting to make the world a better place.

That includes this week, when Georgia and Alabama passed some of the most restrictive abortion laws in the country, laws that will make abortion virtually (and in some cases, actually) unattainable to so many women. In protest, Jamil revealed that she had an abortion when she was younger, and called it “the best decision [she] ever made.”

“This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health,” she wrote in a Twitter thread that viciously attacked the new laws restricting women’s access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare.
