On 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM ET on ABC), Mackenzie Phillips defended her decision to reveal in her 2009 memoir that she'd been molested by father John Philips, and said the shocking news is likely the reason why half-sister Chynna entered rehab for anxiety.

When asked why Phillips chose to make the news of her incestuous relationship public, she replied, "Right now a child is being raped ... So what should I do? Follow the path of sweep it under the carpet? Don't talk about it? The more you challenge this conspiracy of silence, the less silence will be acceptable."

Phillips also said the revelation is perhaps why Chynna checked herself into rehab, adding, "I love Chynna. I support her recovery as she supports mine."
