Hard to believe, but there are many famous people who were almost never born. Based on their parents’ decisions, these celebrity births almost never happened. Justin Bieber’s mom has said that she was contemplating having an abortion when she was pregnant with him. Tim Tebow’s mom said the same thing; they even made a commercial about it, which aired during the Super Bowl. Here are also celebrities who attempted suicide and celebs who narrowly missed death.
People make all sorts of decisions that effect the future. If a family decided not to have a child, it is true that the child wouldn’t exist to become a celebrity. But, of course, there is no way to know what the future will hold. It only makes sense to make decisions that make sense in the moment. These parents ultimately are probably pretty happy with their decisions, because the kids they decided to have have gone on to fame and fortune. But many other families are happy that they didn’t have a child at that moment, because the other choice they could have made would have been devastating for everyone’s future.
All we know today is that Justin Bieber and Tim Tebow exist, which probably makes a lot of people happy.
Tim Tebow’s parents considered aborting him. Apparently, during his mother’s pregnancy she suffered a life-threatening infection, and the drugs she was treated with caused a severe placental abruption. Doctors convinced her to abort the child or risk endangering her own life, but she went against doctors orders and kept the baby.
Cher’s parents allegedly considered aborting her, but unlike people with similar stories, Cher is still pro-choice. She believes that even though abortion would have killed her, women need the right to choose.
Justin Bieber’s parents were allegedly recommended to abort him, but they chose to keep him. Prior to becoming pregnant, Bieber’s mom, Mallette, had suffered sexual abuse. The shame was so much the popstar’s mother had attempted to kill herself. When she became pregnant at 17, she was encouraged presumably by family and doctors to abort the baby. His mother stands by her decision, and she is now raising money for a documentary that criticizes the “abortion epidemic.”
Celine Dion’s mother was initially devastated that she was having a 14th child. She went to the priest to see if she should have an abortion. The priest told her that she should not abort the child. Taking that advice, she gave birth to Celine. And we all heard that song from Titanic because of it.
Nick Cannon’s mother was 17 when she became pregnant with the future R&B singer/Mr. Mariah Carey/America’s Got Talent host. She considered getting rid of the fetus but ultimately changed her mind. Cannon later wrote a song thanking her for her decision.
When Sean Lennon’s famous parents discovered that they were pregnant, they considered having an abortion. Yoko Ono was making preparations for the procedure, but she left the decision up to her husband John Lennon. Lennon ultimately decided that they should keep the child.
Marlin Stutzman, an American politician who has been a member of the United States House of Representatives, representing Indiana’s 3rd congressional district since 2010, almost never was. The Republican representative’s teen mom allegedly considered aborting him, and as rhetoric for anti-abortion legislation, he frequently tells the story of his mother’s decision to keep him.
