Things may have just gotten a little clearer on why actress/activist Alyssa Milano is such an avid pro-choice advocate — she’s a repeat customer.

In her appropriately named podcast, given her stance here, “Alyssa Milano: Sorry Not Sorry,” the actress acknowledged that she has had at least two abortions, according to People Magazine.

“I chose. It was my choice,” Milano declared. “And it was absolutely the right choice for me.”

The “devastating” decision to kill two unborn children in her womb came when she was in her early 20s and in a serious relationship — this being right after the end of the hit sitcom “Who’s the Boss?”

“I had a career and a future and potential,” she explained.

Milano opted not to name the boyfriend, who she said was her first love. And though she now has two children with husband David Bugliari, the radical leftist said she was sure at the time that she wasn’t “equipped” to be a mother.

“I knew at that time, I was not equipped to be a mother,” she said. “And so I chose to have an abortion.”

Oh, and she claimed to be using birth control both times she got pregnant.

“It was not an easy choice,” Milano explained. “It was not something I wanted, but it was something that I needed, like most health care is.”

Citing her faith, the activist declared Catholicism to be sexist.

“It was devastating,” she admitted. “I was raised Catholic and was suddenly put in conflict with my faith. A faith I was coming to realize empowered only men to make every single decision about what was allowed and what was not allowed.”

Milano’s second pregnancy came just months after her first abortion.

“I had done what I knew to do to prevent pregnancy and was still pregnant, so once again I made the right decision to end that pregnancy,” she said matter-of-factly.

Apparently with a clear conscience, Milano looks back on her “choice” to end the life of not one, but two babies without regret.

“I would not have my children [Elizabeth, 4, and son Milo, 7] — my beautiful, perfect, loving, kind and inquisitive children who have a mother who was so very, very ready for them,” she said. “I would not have my career. I would not have the ability or platform I use to fight against oppression with all my heart. I would never have met my amazing husband, David, whose steadfast and immeasurable love for me sustains me through these terrifying times.”

And make no mistake, in Milano’s eyes, it’s all about her and not being burdened by a pregnancy “thrust upon” her.

“I would never had been free to be myself — and that’s what this fight is all about: freedom,” she concluded. “Freedom from oppression. Freedom for women to have the audacity to be equally sexual beings as men. Freedom for women to live the life they were meant to have, not just the life that is thrust upon them by a pregnancy that cannot exist in their life.”
