Ashanti Shares Her Thoughts On Roe V Wade Being Overturned: ‘It’s Mind Boggling’

Ashanti thinks the controversial anti-abortion laws sweeping the nation are “mind-boggling.” The Grammy Award-winning singer, 41, shared her thoughts EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife while promoting her new children’s book, My Name Is A Story.

“I feel like it’s so important that as a woman, we are able to make our own choices,” the “Foolish” hitmaker said. “That’s where I stand. It’s really mind boggling to me that a person who cannot have a child is allowed to have a say over a person that can. Everyone has their lives to live, and it’s about caring for yourself. Being mindful, being healthy, and being able to protect yourself and your body.”

Major protests across the country have taken place in a national outcry against the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that legalized abortion nationwide. Following the news were numerous celebrities who shared in the outcry, calling on the people of the country to rage against the forthcoming ruling and work to keep women’s right to chose the law of the land.

Meanwhile, the legendary R&B and Hip Hop singer has ventured into new territory with her latest children’s book My Name Is A Story which hit stands July 12. From the multi-talented star comes an empowering story inspired by Ashanti’s own experience about a girl who learns to love her unique name. “I’m very excited about it. Obviously it mirrors a very close experience because this is how it was for me growing up,” the New York native said.

“The inspiration came from real life experiences. And actually, when I was younger, I used to work at a daycare center. So when the kids had recess or playtime, they would be jumping and bouncing around, doing what kids do. But when I grabbed a book and said it was story time it was just so captivating to see how powerful reading a story to a child really is,” she said. “They became just so engaged. And I was like, ‘Wow, I want to write a children’s book when I get older,’ so it was something that was always in my heart to do.”

Susan Lucci Recalls Near Fatal Heart Attack Felt ‘Like An Elephant’ On Her Chest (Exclusive)

Susan Lucci reflected on what it was like when she suffered from a heart attack in 2018 in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife at the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women Red Dress Collection Concert on Wednesday, February 1. The actress, 76, said that she wanted to include her “Empower Your Heart” jewelry line as a way of “saying thank you to the American Heart Association,” after her own experience with a heart attack.

The All My Children star revealed that she got tested after learning hearing an interview where a woman said that the symptoms that women experience during a heart attack are different from men’s. “I avoided a near-fatal heart attack,” Susan told HollywoodLife.  “I also was very lucky to have people getting me to the hospital right away.”

Susan opened up about exactly what the symptoms she experienced were, and luckily the doctor was able to operate quickly. “At that hospital, a wonderful, wonderful cardiologist let me know that I had a 90% blockage in my main artery and a 75% blockage in the adjacent,” she said. “I had no idea except that I felt like an elephant pressing on my chest. And he put two stents in that night. And I was released the next day.”

Thankfully, the mother of two was able to recover, but the healthcare providers also told Susan that the heart attack she experienced was a “widowmaker,” and she may not have survived if she didn’t act as quickly as she had. “I was told by the nurses had I not come in, [they were] very sure that I wasn’t going to wake up if I had just gone home,” she revealed.

Susan teamed up with the jewelry brand Tiary for her “Empower Your Heart” line, which will donate 25% of each sale to the American Heart Association’s Life is Why campaign through December 31, 2023. Susan told HL that it was a “dream” to get to raise money for the American Heart Association.
