Ulrika Jonsson opens up about abortion 23 years ago and says she has no regrets

Ulrika Jonsson has opened up about the abortion she had 23 years ago.

The TV presenter said she had just found out her dad had suddenly died and was also in the process of going through a divorce when she found out in an airport loo.

She was also in the “early stages of a relationship” she said.

Ulrika, 54, already had a 15-month old son at the time and stated that she “wasn’t prepared” for another child.

She said that there was “not a moment’s doubt in her mind” to have a termination after her contraception “failed”.

Ulrika, a mum of four, also said she felt “no guilt” over her decision.

She said: "My body was not ready for a pregnancy, my mind even less so.

"To that end, there was no emotional trauma surrounding my decision because for me it was my right to have the procedure."

The news comes after a potential new ruling might make abortion illegal in America.

The Celebs Go Dating star branded the ruling “shocking and dangerous” and that it is “detrimental” to strip a woman’s right to have a say over her body.

Ulrika also opened up about the pain of breaking up with someone after having a baby.

In her column for The Sun, she said: "When you're left holding the baby, either through a decision of your own or someone else's, when the life you had pictured comes to a halt and the future couldn't be further from certain, it’s hard not to crumble."

Ulrika added: "Just because people have shown doggedness, resolve and tenacity in

the past, it doesn’t mean they don’t need a bloody big hug and to be told that it’s fine if they need a cry or can’t cope.

"Even the strongest people need space to buckle and yield."
