Actress Kathy Najimy said she’s grateful to have had the option to end her pregnancy years ago without risking her life:
“Because of Roe v Wade, I was entitled to a safe and legal abortion. I knew that my situation was rare … that I was part of an elite, privileged group and that my choice was only possible because of the treacherous, hard-won battle of those who came before me.
Not only those who fought the battle for my right to choose, but also those thousands of women — mothers, sisters, and daughters — who could not exercise that right in safety and freedom. Who literally lost their lives in illegal, non-safe abortions. I knew and I know that my situation was Disneyland compared to that of others.”
