The 'Grindhouse' star encourages women to not be ashamed of their decision to terminate a pregnancy as a response to a statistic that one in four women has an abortion before the age.

AceShowbiz - Actress Rose McGowan has stunned fans by revealing she had an abortion.

The 45-year-old "Grindhouse" star opened up about her decision via Twitter on Friday, March 01 as she responded to a statistic that one in four women has terminated a pregnancy before the age of 45.

"I have had an abortion and I support this message," she said curtly before offering up a few details.

"I am not ashamed, nor should you be," she continued. "That 60% of those who choose to have abortions are already mothers says a lot - they understand more than anyone."

"I was on birth control and it failed. I realized I could not bring a child into my world and simultaneously change the world."

Rose didn't reveal when she had her abortion but insisted she has no regrets about terminating an unwanted pregnancy.

"I do not regret my decision and it was not made lightly," the actress added. "If you do not want an abortion, don't get one. My body, my choice, my life."

Rose then decided to use her confession to open up a line of dialogue for followers.

"Have you had to make a choice?" she asked. "Let's talk and use hashtag #HonestAbortion."

The former "Charmed" star hit headlines in 2017 when she became one of the first women to publicly accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault, claiming the movie mogul raped her in a hotel at Utah's Sundance Film Festival in 1997.

Weinstein was arrested in New York in May, 2018 and charged with rape and a variety of other sexual crimes. He is scheduled to face the charges in court this summer. He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
