Australian actress Caitlin Stasey has made no secret of the fact that she is very unhappy with Donald Trump being named the President-elect.
Since the news was announced earlier this week, Stasey’s Instagram has been flooded with emotional posts calling Trump “hateful”, “stupid” and labelling those who voted for him “frightened children”.
Now, 26-year-old Stasey has revealed one of the reasons behind her angry reaction to Trump’s potential Presidency and it has a lot to do with a woman’s right to choose.
The former Neighbours star said she relied on the services of Planned Parenthood – a non-profit organisation that offers abortion services and other sexual health care, and that is now under threat thanks to the election result – when she became pregnant at 22.
"When I was 22 I fell pregnant. I was terrified and alone in a city without my family or a partner to support me," she wrote in a post.
"Luckily I was in California (and a five minute drive from my closest PP) one of the remaining states that allows a woman to have agency over her own body. It was scary, it was sad, it was eye opening but above all it was made easy for me.
