Kylie Jenner is speaking out about governmental issues in the United States.
The cosmetics mogul took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday, June 29, to get a little political.
This is a side of Kylie fans haven’t seen all that much. She mainly posts about her multiple Kylie-inspired products and brands, or little glimpses into her life.
She shared a post originally made by Instagram account @Impact.

Their bio reads, “Follow for digestible and socially-impactful content.”
Kylie shared three different messages from the account.
The first message read, “Forced birth in a country… With no universal healthcare and where the cost of giving birth is $4,000 to $15,000.”
Kylie posted another impactful message, “Forced birth in a country… Where gun violence is the number one cause of death among children and teenagers.”

The billionaire is a mother to two children, a daughter named Stormi Webster and a son whose name has yet to be revealed.
In a third and final Story slide, the message read, “Forced birth in a country… Where there are 400,000+ children in foster care at a significantly higher risk of being abused, neglected, and experiencing mental and physical health problems.”
Kylie didn’t include a message of her own, but from what was posted, it’s clear where she stands on the issue of Roe v. Wade being overturned and giving state legislatures the final say about what a woman can and cannot do with her body.
Several Celebrities Have Spoken Up About Their Abortion Stories
Many celebrities have been enraged and outspoken regarding the SCOTUS’ June 24th ruling.
MTV alum Lauren Conrad recently opened up about her abortion experience.
We reported the former ‘Hills’ star suffered an ectopic pregnancy six years ago when she and her husband were first trying to start a family.
An ectopic pregnancy is defined by the Mayo Clinic as follows: “An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus. An ectopic pregnancy most often occurs in a fallopian tube, which carries eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. This type of ectopic pregnancy is called a tubal pregnancy. Sometimes, an ectopic pregnancy occurs in other areas of the body, such as the ovary, abdominal cavity or the lower part of the uterus (cervix), which connects to the vagina.”
This means the fertilized egg will not survive and the pregnancy cannot proceed normally.

E.P. could cause great harm or even death to the female carrying the child.
The best way to treat this type of pregnancy is to remove or abort the ectopic tissue from the female’s body.
Conrad shared four slides to her Instagram story.
“Six years ago, while trying to start our family, I had an ectopic pregnancy,” Conrad’s message continued. “Due to prompt medical care doctors saved my fallopian tubes, allowing me to have two healthy pregnancies. Yesterday I read about a woman with this same condition having her ectopic pregnancy rupture- and facing death- while waiting for treatment, because her doctor was on the phone with his lawyer out of fear of losing his medical license (for using a D&C as a tool to help establish the diagnosis of an ectopic pregnancy. This is heartbreaking.”

Conrad concluded, “I hope someday we will be in a place where every woman has access to the healthcare she needs and the freedom to decide what happens in her own body.”
Laura Prepon of “That 70’s Show” and “Orange Is The New Black” fame also spoke up about her abortion experience.
“One of the worst days of my life was when I made the choice to terminate a pregnancy in the second trimester. The devastating truth is that we found out the fetus would not survive to full term, and that my life was at risk as well. At the time – I had the choice,” she wrote alongside a photo of her standing under a rainbow. “Everyone has their own story for seeking out this medical procedure and I empathize with anyone who’s been faced with this impossible decision. I am praying for all of us, that we can get through this challenging time and regain agency over our own bodies.”
Many others have been vocal about abortion rights and even attended protests across the country.
