I ‘wouldn’t exist’ if Uma Thurman didn’t get abortion


Maya Hawke got personal about her mom Uma Thurman’s past abortion.

The 23-year-old — whose dad is Ethan Hawke — discussed the “Pulp Fiction” star’s parenthood journey on Tuesday during an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Maya discussed the Supreme Court’s recent decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade, and slammed the outcome.

The “Stranger Things” star also expressed how touching Thurman’s 2021 op-ed in “The Washington Post” was, in which she got candid about undergoing an abortion as a teen.

In regards to Roe vs. Wade, Maya told Fallon: “[I] called my mom to ask for advice today about coming in to talk to you.”

“We just got into talking about the Supreme Court ruling and this essay that my mom wrote a couple months ago when they were putting these further restrictions on abortion access, sort of preceding this whole thing,” she added.

Maya said that her parents’ lives would have been taken off course if the “Kill Bill” actress had chosen a different path.

“My mom wrote this really beautiful essay about her abortion that she got when she was really young and about how if she hadn’t had it, she wouldn’t have become the person that she had become, and I wouldn’t exist,” Maya revealed. 

“Both of my parents’ lives would have been derailed if she hadn’t have had access to safe and legal healthcare – fundamental healthcare,” she went on.

The New York City native explained that even though “wealthy people will always be able to get abortions,” the Supreme Court’s ruling would affect others’ lives who “will not only not be able to pursue their dreams, but actually lose their lives.”

“So I just wanted to say, f–k the Supreme Court. But we’re going to keep fighting it, and we’re going to win, like our grandmothers did,” Maya declared.

In the op-ed, Thurman admitted her “darkest secret,” saying had an abortion in her “late teens.”

She wrote at the time that she hopes that by scribing this article, she wishes that “some light will shine through, reaching women and girls who might feel a shame that they can’t protect themselves from and have no agency over.”
