Toni Braxton Opens Up About Her Secret Abortion

| Filed under: Baby BlabberInspirationToni BraxtonBookzSurgeryPregnant

Toni Braxton opened up about her secret abortion in her new memoir!

Toni Braxton is such a strong and amazing woman.

She's opened up about one of the most personal, private things in her life and we're SO impressed by her strength in talking about it…

She had a secret abortion.

With the statics hovering around 1 in 10 women having an abortion before they're 20-years-old, and 1 in 4 before they're 30, odds are you know someone who's had an abortion.

Toni revealed that ten years ago, her then boyfriend Keri Lewis got her pregnant.

She was also in the middle of a six-month prescription for anti-acne medication Accutane, which can cause serious pregnancy complications.

So she terminated the pregnancy.

What's amazing is how honest she got in her new book Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir. She tells how even if she weren't on the medication, she'd still have gone through with the procedure anyway. Her decision was apparently more about not letting her lifestyle be inconvenienced.

Afterwards, she's dealt with so much guilt. She was raised in a strictly religious home, that def didn't support abortion. Then, when her son Diezel was born with autism, she thought she was being punished by God. She even thinks her lupus diagnosis and her parents' messy divorce are all part of God's payback!

That's so terrible! She needs to know that sometimes bad things happen and there's no need to feel guilty.

We're so glad she's able to speak openly about these things so she can give strength to other women, possibly struggling with the same decisions.

We love you, Toni!

    I do not like to comment on looks, but WTH did she do to her face?!?! She was such a beautiful woman. Now she kinda looks like a drag queen version of Robin Roberts. I will never understand how these women can look in a mirror and honestly think they look better then they did before all that "work" was done to them.

    Re: James – which is exactly what your mother should have done to you, you judgmental piece of dog shit.

    Really???? Her original reason for the abortion was because she didn't want to stop her ACNE medication???? Hard not to be judgmental here.

    Her boyfriend got her pregnant!!! What! I think she had something to do with it. I am all for a woman's choice, but her reason to not want her "lifestyle to be inconvenienced" seem awfully selfish to me.

    Re: Becky – It's not about not wanting to stop the medication. Accutane is a serious drug which can cause complications even if you have stopped it and then up to a year afterwards. Don't be so quick to judge.

    Re: Becky – I am not defending her, but Accutane is a serious rx medicene that is controlled by the government…it takes time for the medicene to leave ur body so the fetus would have been affected greatly by this wether she stopped it or not…I just can't believe this is why she really did it …and that she referred to her son's autism as a "punishment"

    Re: James – Hey stupid did you actually read the article? Of course not! The prescribed medication she was on cause several fetal complications.

    "With the statics hovering around 1 in 10 women having an abortion before they're 20-years-old, and 1 in 4 before they're 30, odds are you know someone who's had an abortion."

    Damn. Those statistics seem pretty high. I shouldn't be too surprised though since I meet so many ladies that wont go on birth control and seem to judge those that do.

    Re: Becky – get informed before you judge she became pregnant while on the medication and the medication takes a while to get out of the system so the unborn baby was still at high risk for birth defects

    Re: Becky
    she was ALREADY ON the medication that can cause serious complications, basically she'd be taking a risk, is what she means, on top of not wanting to inconvenience her life at the time. her choice, her problem.
