Olivia Jordan Profile Information

  • I was molested as a child and raped as a teenager. It is through that lense that I view the new policies that govern what happens to a woman’s body as a direct assault. 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. 
I’ve learned that we all have experiences that shape us and alter our lense with which we see the world. I used to get angry when confronted with anti-abortion messaging. I used to want to yell and scream back how I felt. But then we would just have two people screaming. I see you. I hear why abortion is scary to you. I was educated in Catholic school, taught abstinence only “sex education”, I’ve watched a video of an abortion procedure, and I’ve done my research on both sides. I won’t impose my beliefs on you, no one will ever force you to have an abortion. 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.

I am pro-abortion, pro condoms and pro access to birth control. I would NEVER force you to have the same beliefs. Maybe you haven’t had the life experience I have had where your body has been controlled too many times without your consent but I have, and I will fight hard to stop any person from enduring the same fate. Can we recognize that within the pro-choice model we are both allowed to be right? You get to do what’s right for you, I get to do what’s right for me. You can keep speaking out against abortion as I can see how important it is for you to share how you feel. But please don’t 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. I feel like we are letting the perpetrators win. 
Peace, love and prayers for a better future where we can realize that we can live in harmony even when we don’t agree.🍃

  • For many years I would rush to the newsstands on @si_swimsuit launch day and flip through the pages, hoping and praying that one day I could join the ranks of these legends.✨ Last year, I got to make that dream come true and be part of the issue. This year, I’m still rushing to the newsstand to celebrate these women and the way the magazine always continues to inspire, surprise and amaze me. Looking back with so much gratitude, always hopeful for whatever the future may bring.🍃 #dreambig #siswim #sportsillustratedswimsuit

  • Goal this week: LEAD WITH LOVE.💛 So excited that I get to act on a new show this week! Not as excited to be simultaneously having to move again.🤦🏼‍♀️ But trying to keep love at the forefront and not let moving boxes and paint colors make me lose my mind.📦🤪 (photo by @gailbowmanphotography)

  • Stepping out of anxiety and back into gratitude.🍃 There has been a lot on my plate lately and I’ve been struggling with feeling overwhelmed. But stepping back this evening and recognizing how lucky I am that my plate is full.🙏🏼🥗 Sending so much abundance to each of you, if life isn’t handing it all to you right now may it be on its way to you as you read this.💫 And if you are caught up in worrying about the little things- zoom out- and don’t forget that in the big picture, life can be pretty good.🌸(Ps thank you @adley for teaching me the “zoom out” analogy cuz holy moly that applies to absolute everything my anxiety affects.🙈😂) Quote by: @spiritdaughter ✨

  • Sometimes words just don’t seem like enough to express my gratitude for the people in my life.✨💞 My heart is so full right now. Life has been an absolute roller coaster over the past six months. And more than anything it has taught me that I’m lucky that I don’t have to go at it alone. As they say- “Grief shared is half grief and joy shared is double joy.”🙏🏼 Grateful for all the super humans in my life that have held my hand through the hard times and celebrated every moment of the good times. So excited to marry the love of my life and so excited for many of the people we love the most to get to celebrate with us!🙌🏼 Feeling showered with love after my #bridalshower this week hopefully will get more pics from that day soon, but in the meantime shoutout to @noconnelly & @adley for being by my side for the past couple decades and always infusing my life with love and laughter.💃🏼 #blessed #bffl #engagedlife
