Ireland Baldwin opens up about past sexual assault and abortion experiences
On TikTok this weekend, Ireland Baldwin spoke candidly about her experience of sexual assault as a teenager, an incident she says fueled years of trauma. She also opened up about an abortion she later had, explaining that the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade last week got her to consider the ill effects of having a child she was unprepared for at a time when she was already struggling from the rape. “Before I share what I’m about to share, I don’t think it’s anyone’s responsibility to talk about it if they don’t feel comfortable .. I’m only sharing my story now because I want other women to feel supported and loved, whether they want to share theirs or not,” Ireland, 26, said in the post. “I have was raped when I was a teenager and I was completely oblivious when it happened and it changed the course of the rest of my life. … I kept this secret inside me for years, and because I did it, it caused great harm and pain to me and the people I love,” she said. for follow-up. for so long,” Ireland said, she finally “lost control” of her life. “I drank a lot more, I partied a lot more, I treated myself, I was in other abusive and toxic relationships and friendships.

Mind you, I have medical resources, money and support that many women don’t have access to. It just would have been traumatic and impossible.” Ireland said she later had an “unhappy” relationship with a guy who “never wanted kids or marriage” when she became pregnant by accident. “I chose to have an abortion because I know exactly what it felt like to be born between two people who hated each other,” she said, referring to the ugly split from her parents, Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger. She said she “maybe” could have kept the child and put him up for adoption.” But choosing to raise a baby without my own financial security, without a loving and supportive partner, that wasn’t going to work for me,” Ireland explained. “I chose myself, and I would choose myself again. It’s your life, it’s your choice.”
