The pregnancy, the former Charmed star revealed, was a huge surprise to her considering she'd been taking birth control as directed.

Alyssa told her vast social media following to abstain from sex until the restrictive abortion law - dubbed the "heartbeat bill" - was overturned.

The 46-year-old actress got candid on a recent episode of her podcast Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry, revealing to her audience the story about how, back in 1993, she had not one but two abortions.

Explaining her decision to terminate two pregnancies, Milano said she was "not equipped to be a mother and so I chose to have an abortion. I would never have met my unbelievable husband, David, whose steadfast and immeasurable love for me sustains me through these terrifying times", according to People. It filled every part of living. Fifteen years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys.

Alyssa explained that she was on the pill because she was "not ready to be a parent" and she was also taking the controversial acne medicine Accutane, which can cause birth defects in pregnancies.

She noted that she was in a serious relationship and on birth control when she got her abortion. It was devastating. I was raised Catholic and was suddenly put in conflict with my faith. She said she also "suffered from sometimes crippling anxiety". "And so I chose to have an abortion. And it was absolutely the right choice for me", the outlet said.

Milano admitted that the choice to obtain an abortion was not "something I wanted" but rather "something that I needed - like most healthcare is".

All of that lead to her decision to end her pregnancy, though it wasn't an easy choice to make.

The actress and #MeToo activist who has been vocal about her opposition to the introduction of restrictive abortion laws in the USA states has shared her own abortion story in the latest episode of her podcast Sorry Not Sorry.

"I would not have my children, my attractive, perfect, loving, kind and inquisitive children who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them". "I had a career and a future and potential". I would not have the ability or platform I use to fight against oppression with all my heart. "I would never had been free to be myself - and that's what this fight is all about: freedom".

Ultimately the reason Milano made those choices for herself was to have the freedom to make her own way in the world. "Freedom for women to live the life they were meant to have, not just the life that is thrust upon them by a pregnancy that can not exist in their life".
