• Is Heartbreaking Account a Possible Explanation for This Hollywood Star’s Radical Leftism?

    Surge Summary: Actress Alyssa Milano’s abortion-history might account for some of her current Leftist extremism.

    Annnnnd suddenly, a major piece clicks into place …

    It’s been a bit of a mystery over the years what brought about the transition of actress Alyssa Milano from sweet little girl on the TV series Who’s the Boss into the fire-breathing, crusading, wrong-on-everything Leftist she’s now become.

    Dave Urbanski/The Blaze, provides, I believe, a major clue:

    Actress Alyssa Milano — who’s made a big name for herself due to her left-wing activism, particularly regarding abortion rights — revealed that she had two abortions in 1993 when she was in her early 20s,Yahoo Entertainment reported.

    During the latest episode of her podcast “Sorry Not Sorry” the 46-year-old actress said she had her abortions when she “was in love for the first time in the breathless way you can only be in love when you are young. It was huge — overwhelming even. It filled every part of living. It was a joyful and exciting and powerful time in my life,” the outlet noted.

    Yahoo Entertainment reveals the TV sitcom star disclosed she was on the pill because “she knew she was not ready to be a parent” at that point in her career.  Additionally, she was taking the controversial acne-fighting medicine Accutane, known to cause birth defects in pregnancies. Despite all that, “I. Still. Got. Pregnant,” she admits.

    Milano said it was an emotional experience, especially coming from a Catholic background, but that she was “not equipped to be a mother, and so I chose to have an abortion. I chose. It was my choice. And it was absolutely the right choice for me,” the outlet said.

    While she acknowledged it was “not an easy choice” nor was it “something I wanted,” it was “something that I needed — like most healthcare is,” the outlet added.

    After that first abortion, although remaining on birth control, “a few months later I found out I was pregnant again” and “once again I made the right decision to end the pregnancy.” (Yahoo Entertainment).

    Milano stresses her life today wouldn’t be nearly as good had she not undergone those two procedures within one year.

    “I would not have my children — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind [and] inquisitive children — who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said of her son and daughter, born in 2011 and 2014, respectively, with second husband David Bugliari, Yahoo Entertainment said.

    Hers is an odd formulation: I’m so thankful I killed my first two children so that I can now enjoy my third and fourth child.

    I suspect if babies number one and two could communicate with her, they’d respond, “Good to know, mom!”

    There’s more enlightenment from the post-abortion Milano:

    [She] added that had she not had her abortions she wouldn’t have married Bugliari nor would she have had her present career nor the platform she’s built to “fight against oppression”.

    Question: would electively choosing to end the life of your offspring – twice! – qualify as a form of “oppression” to be “fought against”?

    “Fifteen years after that first love had fizzled, my life would be completely lacking all its great joys,” she noted, according to Yahoo Entertainment. “I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom.”

    Does Milano sing? She could do a cover of “I Gotta Be Me” and dedicate it to all her fellow pro-choice, oppression-fighters’ efforts.

    Confirming she is no longer suffering any pangs of conscience over her unconscionable act:

    Milano added that her reasons for having abortions are “real” and, as with other women, such decisions “are ours — and they’re none of your f***ing business.”

    Yup. Implacable serenity plainly reigns in her heart over her “choice”.

    To be clear: the forty-six-year-old thespian’s acts of over two-decades-ago were egregious. She killed her children. Yet, there is forgiveness available to her through another death: that of God’s Son Jesus Christ who gave His life for all of us who, like Milano, are in need of a savior. I pray she will reconsider the accounts of what she, apparently, heard about Him when she was growing up and put her faith in Him.

    Meanwhile, we can understand her unyielding passion for all things “Progressive” – not just “abortion rights” but the entire constellation of issues that accumulate around that cause. For her to admit she might be misguided on any of her Lefty passions, would be opening the door a crack to admit the same about those 1993 decisions she insists, unpersuasively, made her current life so much better. Painful as those memories must already be for her in the quiet of her soul, every day, it would only grow more painful still if she owned the terrible mistake she made in assenting to the death of her children.
