Halsey recently revealed that she supported abortion  after experiencing three pregnancy losses in her 27 years of life.

“Many people have asked me if, since carrying a child to term after years of struggling to do so, I have reconsidered my stance on abortion. The answer is firmly no. In fact, I have never felt more strongly about it,” she penned an open letter in Vogue amid the US Supreme Court ruling to overturn Roe v Wade.

The Closer hit-maker, who welcomed her first child with partner Alev Aydin in July 2021, revealed that she had “miscarried three times, before turning 24.

“It seemed a cruel irony that I could get pregnant with ease but struggled to maintain a pregnancy,” she stated.

“One of my miscarriages required aftercare, a gentle way of saying that I would need an abortion, because my body could not terminate the pregnancy completely on its own and I would risk going into sepsis without medical intervention,” explained the 27-year-old.

During this procedure, the So Good crooner continued, “I cried. I was afraid for myself and I was helpless. I was desperate to end the pregnancy that was threatening my life.”

Sharing details, the singer mentioned that she rewrote her will about donation of her organs .

“My abortion saved my life and gave way for my son to have his,” said the singer-songwriter.

Halsey remarked, “Every person deserves the right to choose when, if, and how they have this dangerous and life-altering experience. I will hold my son in one arm, and fight with all my might with the other.”
