Prior to falling pregnant again and having a son Ender, Halsey claims that having an abortion “saved” their lives.

The “she/they” pronoun-using “Without Me” singer published an open letter in Vogue on July 1 in response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision to reverse Roe v. Wade.

“Many people have asked me if, since carrying a child to term after years of struggling to do so, I have reconsidered my stance on abortion,” Halsey, 27, wrote in the article published Friday.

“The answer is firm no. In fact, I have never felt more strongly about it.”

The “Closer” hitmaker continued, “My abortion saved my life and gave way for my son to have his. Every person deserves the right to choose when, if, and how they have this dangerous and life-altering experience. I will hold my son in one arm, and fight with all my might with the other.”

Halsey also stated they had “miscarried three times” before turning 24. They welcomed their first child with Alev Aydin in July 2021.

“It seemed a cruel irony that I could get pregnant with ease but struggled to maintain a pregnancy,” they wrote.

“One of my miscarriages required ‘aftercare,’ a gentle way of saying that I would need an abortion because my body could not terminate the pregnancy completely on its own and I would risk going into sepsis without medical intervention.”

The singer added that they “cried” during the procedure because they were “desperate to end the pregnancy that was threatening my life.”

“I was prepared for the worst. I gave detailed instructions regarding the donation of my organs should I die or be declared brain-dead, meaning if my heart beat on but my brain wasn’t functioning, the state would have permission to cut into my warm and still flush flesh and take my organs to save other lives.”

The chart-topper recently urged fans to leave their concert in Arizona if they supported the Supreme Court’s controversial ruling. 

They continued, ”How funny that while my own heart would amount to nothing more than a series of involuntary movements on an operating table, a beating heart in my womb could mean I couldn’t consent to saving my own life.”

“If you’re mad in this audience right now, and you’re sharing statistics on Instagram and infographics and saying … ‘That’s really f–ked up,’ what you should do instead is you should be sharing stories about how you’ve benefited from abortion somehow,” they said in a video from last week’s show.
