Days after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Ireland Baldwin shared that she was raped as a teenager and had an abortion after being in a relationship with someone who she was unhappy with.

Ireland Baldwin is sharing some of her most personal experiences.

Two days after the Supreme Court ruled to overturn Roe v. Wade on June 24, the 26-year-old opened up about being raped while “completely unconscious” as a teenager.

“It changed the course of my life,” Baldwin said in a TikTok video. “I never told anyone at the time, not for years.

The only person who knew was a nurse that treated me shortly after. I didn’t even tell my own boyfriend at the time, not my parents, no one.

I kept that secret inside of me for years, and because I did, it caused a lot of hurt and a lot of pain to me and to people I love.”

At the time, Baldwin said she “harbored so much pain and so much guilt” and began to feel as though she had lost control of her life. “I drank a lot more. I partied a lot more,” she continued. “I self-medicated. I was in other abusive and toxic relationships and friendships. I pretty much just did everything I could to distract myself.”

“Seeing so many other brave women share their stories got me thinking what my life would have been like if I had become pregnant and if I had to raise a baby during everything I was going through at the time,” Baldwin said.

“Mind you, I have medical resources, money and support that a lot of women do not have access to. It would have simply been traumatizing and impossible.”

Then, she fast forwarded to another point in her life: “I did have a boyfriend and I did become pregnant,” she shared.

“At that point in time, I would say we were very unhappy together, and he made it pretty clear that he never wanted kids or marriage. He barely wanted to be in a serious relationship.”
