April Love Geary says getting an abortion months before she met fiancé Robin Thicke “was the right thing to do.”
April Love Geary is opening up more about her abortion story.
The model, 26, posted a series of videos on her Instagram Stories Thursday, in response to a follower’s question asking her to talk more about how she healed mentally and physically.
“So my abortion story sucks, but I’ll talk about it,” she started the video. “Healing mentally, I just knew it was the right thing to do so that’s what’s always kept me feeling okay about the decision.”
Geary said that she went to the abortion clinic alone.
“Afterward, [the guy] came and picked me up and took me straight to the airport,” she said. “So, you know, I did make the right decision cause, like, who does that after someone gets an abortion?”
Geary, who now has three kids with Robin Thicke, went on to say that therapy also helped her emotionally work through the experience.
“I knew I wouldn’t be able to provide a good life for this child,” she said. “It just wasn’t the right time for me. I don’t regret it.”
Geary has previously spoken about her abortion on her social media, in response to critical messages in 2019.
“I’ve been getting a bunch of DMs saying things like ‘how could you support abortion when you’re a mother yourself’ so this is MY body, MY body after having an abortion in 2014, a miscarriage in 2017, delivering a baby in 2018 and 2019,” she wrote, along with a photo of her stomach. “I’m glad I was able to make decisions about MY body without facing any type of punishment.”
On Thursday, she shared a message with anyone who is considering an abortion.
“Do what you gotta do,” she said. “It’s your body. It’s your life.”
That is such a personal and difficult decision to make, and to share that on social media is incredibly brave.
