Dirty Dancing Star Jennifer Grey Shares the Story of the Abortion That Changed Her Life

The actress also said she is “heartbroken” about the overturning of Roe v. Wade, calling it “so fundamentally wrong.”

Grey also recalls her own abortion and path towards motherhood.

While she was always careful about birth control and felt empowered by her sexual freedom at that age

Grey says that she's also incredibly thankful to have been a part of the 1987 film Dirty Dancing as it helped show the general public just how dangerous illegal abortions could be

Grey said of that film, “We saw someone who was hemorrhaging.

We saw what happens to people without means the haves and the have nots. I love that part of the storyline because it was really a feminist movie in a rom-com. It was a perfect use of history.”
