How many children does Uma Thurman have?

Thurman wrote her abortion was, "the hardest decision of my life, one that caused me anguish then and that saddens me even now, but it was the path to the life full of joy and love that I have experienced. Choosing not to keep that early pregnancy allowed me to grow up and become the mother I wanted and needed to be." 

She has two adult children with ex-husband Ethan Hawke.

Maya and Levon Roan Thurman-Hawke are both actors.

Thurman has a young daughter, Luna, with ex-fiance, Arpad Busson.

What is the new Texas abortion law?

The new Texas law bans abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy.

The patient receiving an abortion cannot be sued, but everyone who helps that patient can be, including their doctor, driver or family member who helps pay for the procedure.

Victims of rape and incest are not excluded from the new law.

Since the law was passed, some Texas residents have gone across state lines to be able to get an abortion.

What is Uma Thurman's message to everyone?

Thurman said she wrote the op-ed to, "draw the flames of controversy away" from vulnerable women currently impacted by the law. 

She hopes her story will help women and girls who may find themselves in the same situation, or who " might feel shame that they can't protect themselves."

"To all women outraged by having our bodies' rights taken by the state; and to all of you who are made vulnerable and subjected to shame because you have a uterus — I say: I see you," Thurman wrote in her op-ed.

"Have courage. You are beautiful."
