‘Sports Illustrated’ Model Robyn Lawley Defends Her Stretch Marks on Instagram.

It seems shocking that supermodels — arguably some of the prettiest people on the planet — would have to defend their bodies, but the act of doing just that on social media is slowly but surely becoming a trend. Lawley, 26, flaunted her own stretch marks in a topless photo she posted to Facebook last Thursday in response to an article claiming she considered abortion to avoid getting marks, which she adamantly denies saying. “I was shocked, not only because that is not what I said – not to mention I already had a ton of stretch marks like 90 percent of the world – but to read that entire article and be already heavily pregnant, that’s their angle?” she posted. “As for my stretch marks, I knew they were coming and as they’re fading into white (like all my others) I thought I might capture them,” she wrote. “Because they are some bad ass #tigerstripes. And I earned them.” “We put an unbelievable amount of ridiculous time-consuming pressure on women to care so much about their flaws they forget how truly beautiful they (you) are today,” she wrote. “F**k them, who cares, be you, be loud, be proud.” “To anyone who feels bad about your body, especially after a baby, you are a warrior, you created a life inside of you,” continues the post. “That’s no easy feat.”

Lawley said the article was ultimately pulled, but not before hundreds of comments poured in from around the world causing so much stress she was “worried about my unborn baby’s health.” The model, who said she “will always be pro choice,” said it was ridiculous to think that she would consider having an abortion for the sole reason of avoiding stretch marks. “No one likes to get abortion but if your not prepared their should be no judgement into getting one,” she wrote, adding, “I love my daughter, I also love my human rights.” Lawley’s post showing off her post-pregnancy body is not the first to go viral this year. In March, a woman penned a Facebook post saying she was “proud of this body and every mark on it.” In June, a South Carolina mother wrote a similar post, writing that she believes a “flabby belly” and stretch marks from having children are “sexier than any six pack.” Rather than focus on her appearance, the Australian model turned the conversation toward women’s rights. “Women’s rights should not be used so gimmicky and spoken about so poorly,” she wrote.

We often forget those women who do have a child because they couldn’t get access to an abortion because of state laws and no one is there for her when she’s denied health care or becomes homeless due to staggering costs or even has to change her entire career.
