American actress, Sharon Vonne Stone made a shocking revelation for the first time after she revealed she suffered nine miscarriages.
The 64-year-old ‘Basic Instinct’ star discussed her loss while commenting on an Instagram post by PEOPLE, where ‘Dancing With The Stars’ performer Peta Murgatroyd, 35, opened up about losing a pregnancy while her husband Maks Chmerkovskiy, 42, was away in Ukraine.
Stone who is now the mother of three children, Roan, Laird and Quinn through adoption, criticized the health system for not giving enough support to women.
“We, as females, don’t have a forum to discuss the profundity of this loss. I lost nine children by miscarriage.
“It is no small thing, physically nor emotionally yet we are made to feel it is something to bear alone and secretly with some kind of sense of failure.
“Instead of receiving the much needed compassion and empathy and healing which we so need.
“Female health and wellness left to the care of the male ideology has become lax at the best, ignorant in fact, and violently oppressive in effort.”
Her comment came before the Supreme Court overturned its 1973 landmark decision in Roe v. Wade that established the right to abortion in the United States of America for over 50 years.
The announcement has since sparked outrage from many in Hollywood and beyond, renewing public discussions surrounding women’s access to healthcare and bodily autonomy.
In an interview, the Hollywood Icon disclosed that a genetic blood condition caused her miscarriages.
Also, in her 2021 memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, she revealed that when she lost her last baby, she went through thirty-six hours of labour without giving birth.
