Toni Braxton Thinks God Is Punishing Her By Giving Her Son Autism, All Because She Had An Abortion

toni braxton new book memoir abortion

Toni Braxton only recently opened up about some of her darkest moments.

In her new book Unbreak My Heart: A Memoir, Toni details some of the toughest times in her life.

In it, she opens up about her secret abortion she had ten years ago. She had every reason to terminate the pregnancy (she was on a prescription that could've caused birth defects), and a whole bunch of people would NEVER blame her, but she still feels guilty.

She said:

"I was suddenly faced with a choice I'd never thought I'd have to make. Amid my major misgivings about abortion, I eventually made the gut-wrenching decision… In my heart, I believed I had taken a life — an action that I thought God might one day punish me for. … My initial rage was quickly followed by another strong emotion: guilt. I knew I'd taken a life… I believed God's payback was to give my son autism."

That's so awful she feels that way!

Her son Diezel was born with autism and she think it's because she's being punished?? That's not what religion is about and that's not how medical biology works.

Toni has some other less than popular opinions about where her son's autism came from, saying:

"Maybe it's just a coincidence that after my son's first MMR vaccine, I began to notice changes in him."

A whole lot of people — and the scientific community — might be upset to hear that. Some people might agree. We just hope that Toni one day realizes that sometimes things just happen, and the blame can't be placed anywhere.

Our heart breaks for her, and we hope she might stop seeing Autism as a punishment down the road.

    "She had every reason to terminate the pregnancy." Seriously Perez?

    Perhaps she is being punished for being a deadbeat by not paying her bills. Bankruptcy, in the millions, twice? Some kind of America this is.

    I hate when people who have a platform spread misinformation! autism is not caused by vaccinations.. look up that ridiculous piece of "research" if you can even call it that…that research was completely retracted!

    Another case of religion being used inappropriately. It's as if God is punishing her? What about her child? Why would God punish her child for her misdeeds? Don't blame God or make Him out to be the vindictive one. Your child is autistic because he is. Blaming God or blaming anyone or anything for the reason he is autistic is absurd.

    Perez once again taking the whole thing out of context to make a article she does not think it, she loves her son and always will, she once thought that it her fault when her son was first diagnosed with autism which a lot of parents tend to blame themselves at first when they don't know anything about the illness. So perez before you make an article make sure you get your facts right.

    Why must we give idiots press time? God would not give her son autism to punish her.

    Wow. She just makes her self sound not only stupid, but an asshole towards her son. What a disgrace to the society. I feel bad for her son, not because he has autism, but because his mom is an idiot, I hope she loves him and cares for him like any child.

    Wow, I used to have respect for her. Now that I know how wildly archaic and banana's she is, that's all out the window. God getting revenge. Why not just blame the invisible flying spaghetti monster of morals. What a antiquated dolt.

    I've read many people commenting the same thing about noticing changes after the MMR vaccine.



  13. 13

    This is the most ridiculous thing I have heard all day. I feel sorry for her son for having such a stupid mother.



  14. 14

    Jaw-droppingly ignorant–and self-absorbed, to put it as kindly as possible. Things happen to other people to punish her?

    Yes Tony it's all about you. Things happen and you deal with it, don't make your son carry your guilt around. And really is you didn't want another kid the you should have used a condom. Get it together and grow the F up.

    This is such a horrible thing to say. My son was diagnosed w/ autism at the age of 2, he is now 4 and he is the best thing that has ever happened to my family. I would never change anything about it. It breaks my heart to hear someone call autism a punishment!!! there is nothing my son cant do living with autism. I lost all respect for toni
