Choose Life

“I’m so thankful the Eighth Amendment was there to
protect me from making a quick and rash decision when
I was experiencing a crisis pregnancy” –

Famous People and Abortion
Jack Nicholson’s 17 year old mother was pressured
by her peers to have an abortion. She did not go
through with it, and he was raised by his maternal
grandparents. Nicholson describes his current views as
out of step with many in Hollywood, “I’m very contra
my constituency in terms of abortion because I’m
positively against it. I don’t have the right to any other
view. My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my
life,” said Nicholson.
