Taylor Swift and more celebrities react after Roe v. calf
Warning: This article contains sexual assault.
Ireland Baldwin shares some of her most personal experiences.
Two days after the Supreme Court ruled to dismiss Roe v. Wade on June 24, the 26-year-old revealed that he was raped “completely unconscious” as a teenager.
“It changed the course of my life,” Baldwin said in a TikTok video. “I never told anyone at the time, not for years. The only person who knew was a nurse who treated me shortly after. I didn’t even tell my own boyfriend at the time, not my parents, nobody. I’ve kept that secret inside me for years, and for doing it, it’s caused me and the people I love a lot of pain and pain.”
At the time, Baldwin said she was “carrying so much pain and so much guilt” and felt like she had lost control of her life. “I drank a lot more. I partied a lot more,” she continued. “I treated myself. I have been in other abusive and toxic relationships and friendships. I pretty much did anything to distract myself.”
