“I was molested as a child and raped as a teenage,” Jordan wrote Monday in an Instagram post.
Her revelation was part of a lengthy post where she aired her sentiments on laws concerning abortion.
“Decisions were made for my body without my consent. My body and mind have been traumatized in ways I am still recovering from many years later. Maybe it sounds unjust to compare criminalizing abortion to being raped; but to me, it feels the same,” Jordan said.
However, the beauty queen clarified she was not expressing her opinion to impose her belief on someone else.
“I won’t impose my beliefs on you. No one will ever force you to have an abortion,” she said.
“And I ask, if you could pause for one second and realize how insane it is to impose your views on me, to force me or any woman to endure a pregnancy she is not ready for, maybe even one she didn’t consent to in the first place,” she added.
Jordan ended her post by calling on others “not to support policies that strip people of their rights and their free choice.”
“Because when men make laws that govern women’s body without their consent, I feel like I am being assaulted all over again,” she said. (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
