The Sex and the City actress, who is campaigning to be the governor of New York, took the podium a day after President Trump announced conservative judge Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court — a candidate with a history of voting against abortion rights who many fear, if put on the bench, could lead to abortion becoming illegal in various states again.

“Abortion rights and reproductive rights is a very personal issue for me,” Nixon, 52, told the crowd. “My mother had an abortion here in New York State before it was legal. And when I was old enough, she made sure to tell me about it.”

“It was very hard for her to speak about,” Nixon added. “She didn’t give a lot of details but it was very important for her to tell me that she had had an abortion, that it had been illegal, and that it had been a tremendously awful experience. She had wanted me to make sure that I knew her history so I can fully value how crucial reproductive freedom is.”

Nixon then removed a wire hanger from her black tote bag, explaining that she had seen the item in her closet earlier in the day and saw the household object in a new light.

Ms. Nixon brought a wire hanger to a rally to make her point. While still a teenager, Ms. Nixon achieved an uncommon feat of Broadway stamina and masochism: racing between theaters each night to star in two Ronald Reagan once wondered how anyone could hold office without being an actor.

“For those of you too young to remember, this is something that women in this state and this country were driven to use out of fear and desperation, performing abortions on themselves often with devastating effects to their health and sometimes their life,” Nixon said. “We must ever, ever, ever go back to a time where any woman feels she has to make this kind of a choice. … So that no woman will ever feel compelled to use something like this on her again.”

This isn’t the first time Nixon has opened up about her mother’s experience with abortion.

In a 2009 interview with CNN, she said, “My mother had an illegal abortion pre-1973, and it’s something that I would never want to face or want my daughter to be facing or any of her friends. Abortion is a right I feel must not go away, and I feel like people aren’t mobilizing so much because it’s so complicated and it’s difficult to understand.”

States brace for abortion fights after Kavanaugh nomination

  States brace for abortion fights after Kavanaugh nomination Anticipating renewed fights over abortion, some governors and state lawmakers already are looking for ways to enhance or dismantle the right in their own constitutions and laws. President Donald Trump's nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court has raised both fears and hopes that a conservative court majority could weaken or overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that created a nationwide right to abortion. That could fan an already raging battle in states over what should and should not be legal.

Nixon elaborated more about it in a 2016 first-person essay in Time, saying that her mother was working in New York City with game show producers Goodson and Todman (What’s my Line?, Family Feud, etc).

She never was willing to tell me any details about her abortion, except to let me know that she had one and it was awful and scary,” the actress wrote.

  ‘I’m Doing It for the Babies’: Inside the Ground Game to Reverse Roe v. Wade With new Supreme Court Justice on the way, anti-abortion groups sense a unique moment to achieve their goal, and they’re mobilizing forces at the local level.AVON, Ind. — Armed with sunscreen, doorknob fliers and a mission 50 years in the making, the team of activists sporting blue “I Vote Pro-Life” T-shirts fanned out into a web of cul-de-sacs in a subdivision just west of Indianapolis, undeterred by towering rain clouds and 90-degree heat.

If she wins, Nixon will be the first openly gay woman to hold the position.

At Tuesday’s rally, she openly criticized Gov. Cuomo for giving “lip service” to the issue of abortion while not signing the Reproductive Health Act or the Comprehensive Contraceptive Coverage Act.

She’s since been endorsed by #VOTEPROCHOICE.

“Women have to lead and speak up,” Nixon, a mother of three, told PEOPLE exclusively in March. “I just think we need to have more people of color and women and LGBT people not just represented — but leading. If we want to fix our world, they know what’s wrong with it because they’ve been on the short end of the stick.”

During an appearance on TheWendy Williams Show in April, Nixon said that Trump’s election shook her and served as a “wake-up call” for getting into politics.

“I love New York,” she said. “I believe so much in New York and I believe that we’re a real progressive bastion. … If we don’t like the direction our government is going in, we have to step up and get involved like never before.That’s what I’m doing.”
