May 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) This past weekend during an appearance on a Lifetime show called Dear Mom, Love Cher, the famous singers mother confessed that she came within minutes of aborting her now-famous daughter.
Georgia Holt was 20 and recently separated from her husband when she found herself pregnant with Cher. She had moved back in with her own mother, who, when she found out that Georgia was expecting, gave her daughter an ultimatum: reunite with her husband or get an abortion.
Holt at first opted for the abortion, to the point that she even went to the clinic for the scheduled abortion.
"I can remember the chairs were chrome [in the clinic], and I was sweating, she recounted. The sweat was just coming off of me on this chrome and when the door opened and it was my turn, I said, 'Mother, I can't do it.' So, that's how she's here."
Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!
Cher was born in 1946, before abortions were legalized by Roe v. Wade. After her birth, Georgia placed Cher temporarily in an orphanage run by Catholic nuns.
Cher told USA Today: I heard the abortion story when I was a teenager. The orphanage story has been a touchy one for my mom her whole life, and she didn't want to talk about it. I said, 'Mom, why didn't you just march in and take me?
"She said, 'I didn't have the power. I didn't have any money or a job, and the church was so strong. I'd go see you every day and you'd be crying. You don't know what it was like.' It was harder for women then.
But while Cher's life was narrowly saved from abortion, Cher has shown little interest in defending other unborn babies in the same predicament she was once in. Last year she tweeted that it would be an act of "karma" if pro-life Rep. Todd Akin would "get raped by man with HIV/AIDS" after Akin said he was against abortion even in cases of rape.
She has also vociferously defended Planned Parenthood, the number one provider of abortion in America.
I betcha Cher’s flushed a few down the toilet.
Cher while she once had some singing talent is an airhead bigger than the balloons in the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade.
“If I could turn back time...”
Lead story on TMZ... never.
—— “She said, ‘I didn’t have the power. I didn’t have any money or a job, and the church was so strong. I’d go see you every day and you’d be crying. You don’t know what it was like.’ It was harder for women then. ——
Lessee. She comes within minutes of murdering her own child, then she harbors anger for the Church that cared for her child.
It was harder then. Infanticide was illegal.
Well, since I’m pro-life, I won’t comment on what I’m thinking right now.
Think about all the brilliant and talented people who weren’t so lucky.
> Well, since Im pro-life, I wont comment on what Im thinking right now.
Surely what you’re thinking is also pro-life, no?
I don’t believe this. What kind of clinic was there in 1946 that would be so willy nilly ready to abort or not abort just based on moms word?
I hardly find Cher as a model for women.
Well at least we can sleep well and have the comfort in knowing Chastity er.... Charles will never be troubled with such a choice.....
I don’t believe it either. Abortion was illegal. You needed some bucks...and it wasn’t like you could walk home after.
If you couldn’t take care of your children, the state did. I have two friends who were basically orphans because the father had left and the mother couldn’t care for the children.
One less liberal.....mmmmmmmmm.
Typical drug-addled hypocrite leftist she is. A real mental midget.
There were always liberal doctors who did abortions even when it was illegal.
It is too bad that she did not give her daughter up for adoption. Her daughter might not have grown up so messed up in the head.
