Glee actress Naya Rivera shares her experience of having an abortion in 2010 in her memoir titled Sorry, Not Sorry. She writes that she had just broken up with her boyfriend, actor Ryan Dorsey, when she found out she was pregnant with his child. She didn’t tell him, put her career first and went and got the procedure done on a day off from shooting her show.

Rivera and Dorsey later reconciled, marrying in 2014 and welcoming son Josey to the family last year. But Rivera says she does not regret making the decision to abort her earlier pregnancy.

She told People Magazine:

It was very scary to open up about everything. It’s not something a lot of people talk about, but I think they should. I know some people might read it and say, ‘What the hell?’ But I hope someone out there gets something out of it.
