Actress Sharon Stone’s new memoir, out this week, shares the pain and trauma that she experienced when she aborted her first child.
Later, Stone (“Total Recall,” “Basic Instinct”) suffered several miscarriages and learned that she had an autoimmune disease and could not have children, Hollywood Life reports. Her memoir is “The Beauty of Living Twice.”
Stone grew up in an abusive home, according to BBC News. And at age 18, she said she and her first “serious boyfriend” got pregnant.
Without telling anyone else, Stone said she and her boyfriend drove to an abortion facility in Ohio where she had an abortion. When she got back home, she said she dealt with the trauma by herself.
“I was bleeding all over the place, and far worse than I should have been,” she wrote. “But this was a secret and I had no one to tell. So I stayed in my room and bled for days. I was weak and scared and then just weak.”
Stone said she burned her stained sheets so that her family would not find out, and went back to school. Later, she said she went to a Planned Parenthood that educated her about sex and gave her birth control, according to the report.
Years later, after marrying Phil Bronstein, she said she miscarried several babies. Eventually, Stone said she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and told that she would not be able to have any biological children. Stone later adopted three boys.

More often than not, abortions hurt mothers as well as their unborn babies – sometimes physically and often psychologically. Abortion activists claim abortions are normal and most women do not regret them, but evidence shows the opposite.
A 2013 study in “Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences” linked abortion with depression and anxiety disorders including post-traumatic stress disorder. Other studies have found connections between abortion and increased risks of substance abuse and suicide.
The reason why there is so much hurt surrounding abortion is because of what it is: the direct, intentional killing of a unique, living unborn child. It is evil, unnecessary suffering and death.
