Celebrities Saved From Abortion: What the World Would Have Lost Without Cher

A music and movie icon almost wasn't — her mother, laying on the abortionist's table — chose life.

In 2010, Cher told Vanity Fair about her mother’s thoughts of aborting her and how she almost wasn’t here. “My mother told me once about how she got pregnant with me and didn’t want to be with my dad; she was just so young and inexperienced. My grandmother said, ‘You have a bright future.’ She actually suggested an abortion, so my mom was in the doctor’s office — a back-alley doctor — getting on the table. And then at the last minute she said, ‘I can’t do this. I don’t care what happens — I can’t do this.’”

Her own near-death experience hasn’t shaped her views on abortion, however. Cher is unapologetically pro-abortion, taking her hyped-up, vitriolic rants out on “old white men,” whom she perceives are responsible for the few restrictions there are on abortions. Cher’s tweets made little sense, had even worse grammar and were filled with unprintable language. Ironically, the last tweet demanded, “May God take my voice when I don’t stand up against injustice for all who can’t help them[selves]” [well, sort of. That version was cleaned up so you could read it. See below for her version].

Sonny and Cher’s signature hit song “I Got You Babe,” was released in 1965. It spent three weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. and was certified Gold. This is just a taste of what the world would’ve missed without Cher.
