Kelly Clarkson Shares Pregnancy Story Amid Arizona Abortion Ban

Kelly Clarkson shared her own difficult pregnancy stories amid last week’s Arizona Supreme Court ruling allowing the state to prepare to implement a near-total ban on abortion based on a law of 1864.

On Monday, Clarkson spoke with former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about the Arizona court’s ruling regarding The Kelly Clarkson Show. Clinton was about to promote Sufferthe Broadway musical about the women’s suffrage movement in America, in which the former Secretary of State is involved as a producer.

“Did you ever think that in your lifetime we would see this happen?” Clarkson asked Clinton what was happening in Arizona. “I just find the thinking that existed in 1864 to be insane. It’s a very different world. We know a lot more now. We are going backwards. »

“It’s horrible,” Clinton said. “I was afraid it would happen but I hoped it wouldn’t happen. Now here we are in the middle of this very difficult time for women in about half of the states in our country who cannot get the care they need.

“The old Arizona law is without exception (for rape and incest),” Clinton continued, “and the danger to women’s lives as well as our right to make our own decisions about our bodies and ourselves is so deep. And there is another element that I find very disturbing. I mean, there’s a kind of cruelty in that.

Clarkson then shared that she had been hospitalized during both of her pregnancies and feared she might lose her life. “I literally asked God, this is a real thing, to take me and my son to the hospital for the second time, because I was like, ‘This is the worst thing,'” she recalled, stopping to apologize as she began to get emotional thinking about her experience.

“It was my decision and I’m so glad I did it, I love my babies, but to make someone…” Clarkson continued. “And you don’t realize how hard it is. The fact that you take that away from someone, it can literally kill them. The fact that if they’re raped by a family member and they have to do it, that’s just crazy to me.

The “Stronger” singer used her platform on The Kelly Clarkson Show to try to combat voter apathy in the 2024 presidential election. “It’s hard to preach to someone that they should care about something, but at the same time, I feel like that we’re going to find ourselves in a sort of — not to sound dramatic but — sort of a civil war over things that I think we shouldn’t be divided over,” she said.

Clinton agreed, saying, “I think you’re 100 percent right.” All I can do, as you just said, is try to tell people — for example, there was a vote in the Arizona legislature to try to repeal this 1864 law , so there can be a much more sensible approach. He lost. It is important to know who represents you.

The politician reminded viewers that voting is “your superpower – and it may not seem like it, but it really is.”
