Meghan Markle opened up to Vogue in a recent interview, discussing her two pregnancies as well as her relationship with Prince Harry.
Just two days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Meghan and Gloria Steinem sat down to talk to Jessica Yellin about the momentous event.
And Meghan was frank about her response.
The mother-of-two responded when asked what advice she would give to men who support reproductive rights: “Men need to be vocal in this moment and beyond because these are decisions that affect relationships, families, and communities as a whole.
“They may target women, but we are all affected by the results. The past few days, my husband and I have had numerous conversations about that. He is a feminist as well.
“Yes, I can attest to that since I met him before I met you,” Gloria continued. He was speaking up for people’s rights at a significant meeting I went to.
And, like mine last week, his response was guttural, Meghan continued. I am aware that despair is a feeling that many women are currently experiencing. But once more, we must unite and stop moping. We must put in the effort.
Meghan, who has two children with Harry, Archie, three, and Lilibet, one, also discussed the significance of normalizing discussions about abortion and women’s health. She said, “I reflect on how fortunate I felt to be able to have both of my children. “I am familiar with how it feels to be connected to what is developing inside your body.
“What happens to our bodies is so deeply personal, which even though so many of us deal with personal health crises, can also result in silence and stigma. I’ve spoken openly about my experience of miscarrying, so I understand how it feels.
“More people will understand how important it is to have protections in place as we normalize conversation about the things that affect our lives and bodies,”
