Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Walker reveals she had an abortion in 2020
Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, said she had an abortion in 2020.
The 23-year-old model made the disclosure following Friday’s Supreme Court ruling that quashed Roe v. Wade and returned the authority to regulate abortion to individual states.
“There are countless women who have struggled with making the decision to have an abortion. I too struggled with the choice, but in 2020, when the world came crashing down during the pandemic, I sought an abortion,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Today marks a huge setback in history – a profound injustice to women in the United States,” Meadow-born Meadow Rain Walker- began her post.
Meadow went on to say that the experience was “private and personal” and that she was “lucky to have a wonderful doctor who supported me through the grueling process.”
She continued to praise the medical professionals who helped her, writing, “With their help, I can be the happy and healthy person I am today.”
However, she was concerned for other women in her position: “It is heartbreaking to know that now even more women will not have the opportunity to seek safe termination and choose their bodies first.”

“In a world that constantly marginalizes women, this feels like the biggest attack of all,” she added.
Meadow concluded her message by writing, “Prohibiting abortion doesn’t prevent abortion, it prevents safe abortions.”
The beauty then took to her Instagram stories, re-shared her post, adding that she was getting “hate comments” for sharing her story.
“The amount of hate comments I’ve received on this post is unbelievable. Please unfollow me if you disagree with my values. Don’t stick around saying horrible things,” she begged her 3.7 million followers.

Meadow is the only daughter of the late actor Paul Walker – best known for his role as Brian O’Conner in the Fast & Furious franchise – who died in 2013 at the age of 40 in a car accident.
The Supreme Court Friday morning overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision by upholding Mississippi’s restrictive 15-week abortion ban.
‘The Constitution grants no right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.”
Tensions over the future of abortion rights in the country have been running high since a draft Dobbs opinion was leaked — showing that the Supreme Court’s conservative majority was poised to push the question of whether abortion was legal back to the states.

The Conservative majority of 6-3 delivered on what was in the draft, with Liberal judges Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer disagreeing. Chief Justice John Roberts agreed. Conservative judges Brett Kavanaugh and Clarence Thomas also filed a consensus.
“Guided by the history and tradition that map out the essential components of the nation’s concept of ordered freedom, the Court finds that the Fourteenth Amendment clearly does not protect the right to abortion,” said the decision, written by conservative judge Samuel Alito. .
Abortion was automatically banned in 18 US states once Roe v. Wade was quashed, thanks to specially designed “trigger laws” and landmark bans that were automatically reintroduced after Friday’s ruling.
