Pro-Life Survivors - 23 Celebrities Almost Aborted

This anti-abortion list will probably stun you.  The pro-life meaning is of course those who believe in protecting the innocent life of an aborted child.

Most likely, you were not aware that some of the most influential people of the past 100 years were almost aborted, taken out of this world before they ever got the chance to live.

Many who support the murder of an unborn person in this pro life-pro choice debate, often say things like, "Look at the family that person is being born into. They would be better off dead!" 

Or, "a baby born under THOSE sort of circumstances would only end up living out a horrible existence anyways..."

The stories below will END those statements once and for all.

The pro-life march for life is gaining more steam each day. 

Groups like Students for Life, the National Right to Life, Live Actions and other pro life organizations are spreading the word.

Students for Life of America - Welcome to Truth

These stories below, from some of the BIGGEST celebrities in the world, started out horrible, bleak, and hopeless...

...yet they ended in great success!

So as the Pro-life and Pro-choice debate continue to heat up, I hope this list can help.

So here is the list.  If you would like to skip ahead or go directly to a particular person, you can click on one of the links from our Table of Contents below.

Steve Jobs - Anti-Abortion: 23 Influential People Almost Aborted

Steve Jobs' business and technology accomplishments have been virtually unmatched in the last 25 years, before his untimely death in 2011.

Steve Jobs' death came quick and unexpected.

Steve Jobs' net worth was around $10 billion when he died.

He even had a movie about him.  Steve Jobs' movie (pcitured below), with Ashton Kutcher came out in 2015 and did well.

Steve Jobs Movie - Welcome to Truth

Steve Jobs is, of course, the founder of Apple, with his own "Steve Jobs quotes" page on the Internet but did you know that Steve Jobs was almost aborted?

Jobs' mother was 23, and almost decided to abort Steve.  Instead, she had him and gave him up for adoption to his parents, Paul and Clara Jobs, who raised him.

Imagine a world without Apple...or if there never was a Steve Jobs.

Regardless of your views on anti-abortion, I think we can agree it would be quite a different world.  

Around 1,700 babies are aborted (murdered) each day in the U.S. (over 600,000 per year).

How many Steve Jobs are we murdering each year?

Oprah Winfrey - Anti-Abortion: 23 Influential People Almost Aborted


Oprah Winfrey does not need any introduction.

Estimates of an Oprah Winfrey net worth come in at around $2.7 billion.

Oprah formerly worked as a TV personality, actress and talk show host.

Yet the Oprah Winfrey age of talk shows is pretty far in the past.

She is now the billionaire owner of multiple business ventures than span worldwide.

But did you know that she was almost aborted?

That's right, maybe the most powerful media mogul in the world almost was never even born.

How many Oprahs are we aborting each year (I think you are starting to see the point)?

Although Oprah supports abortion, it is a good thing her teenage mother, Vernita Lee, did NOT.

Her teenage mother gave her the gift of life, even when others encouraged her to abort Oprah.

Tim Tebow - Anti-Abortion: 23 Influential People Almost Aborted


Tim Tebow is one of the most recognizable athletes in the world.

The athletic accomplishments of Tebow (Heisman trophy winner, 2-time national championship winner, etc.) are bypassed only by his passion for helping and loving others, and spreading the Gospel of Jesus.

With Tim Tebow football was never just about touchdowns and yardage, but impact.

To see him slam a Tim Tebow baseball out of the stadium is quite the sight. 

With Tim Tebow mets fans are hoping for him to excel beyond all expectations.

However, his mother, Pam Tebow, was encouraged to abort him by doctors, due to complications that might affect her and him.

She refused, however, and Tebow has since impacted the world in ways most have only dreamed of.

His Tim Tebow Foundation helps celebrate people with special needs, and helps spread the love of God in great ways throughout the world. 

You can find more information on his foundation here:

Pope John Paul II - Anti-Abortion: 23 Influential People Almost Aborted


Karol Jozev Wojtyla, better known as Pope John Paul II, has been seen by many as one of the best popes to ever have the seat.

Pope John Paul 2 (for those who don't speak roman numerals) served as pope from 1978 to 2005.  John Paul 2 was an inspiration to all those around him.

However, Pope John Paul's mother was advised to abort him after losing her daughter shortly after her birth.

Luckily, his mother declined though, and a new pope was born.

Nick Cannon (not spelled Nick Canon) is an actor, comedian, rapper, director, producer, and TV host.

Although the Eminem-Nick Cannon feud often fills the tabloids and media blog sites, Nick has accomplished many other extremely noteworthy things.

He is or has been the TV host for "The Nick Cannon Show, Wild 'N Out, America's Got Talent, Lip Sync Battle Shorties and The Masked Singer".

He was married to Mariah Carey for many years, and Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed 2 kids into this world together.

However, this star almost never came to be.

His mother was just 17 when she got pregnant with Nick and decided to get an abortion.

However, at the last minute, she ended up changing her mind, and look what came from such horrible beginnings?

A star was born.

Layne Beachley

Layne Beachley - Anti-Abortion: 23 Influential People Almost Aborted


Layne Beachley is a 7-time world champion surfer.

Her mother, Maggie Gardener, was date-raped at the age of 17.

Of course, she still had the child, and Layne would go on to stun the surfing world, one championship at a time.

What I am hoping you see, through these examples, is that the mother and the child in that mother's womb are ultimately COMPLETELY different people, with very different potentials, possibilities, and destinies. 

Neither the mother, nor the father, have the right to abort (murder) that child.  The mothers in these examples were in really BAD situations, but their children ended up changing the world. 

How many of the 1,700 babies aborted each day in the U.S. could be doing the same?

I was almost aborted and I wish my parents had gone through with it. In fact, when I found out about it I realized how much better their lives would have been without me. My mom had a disease and they were maxed out with a bunch of kids already. Glad some celebrities made it big but a lot of people wind up with horrible lives or wish their parents had made the opposite decision. You just don’t hear about them.

Wow, what a testimony, Mary. Thank you for sharing! Together, we can win this fight for all the babies out there.

I got pregnant at 13 never considered abortion later in my life I had 3 other children. I was personally persuaded later on while married to terminate a pregnantcy it was the worst decision of my life. It was based on finances. I vowed to fight for this to be illegal. I would love Roe versus Wade to be reversed. It is wrong. I worked for a planned parenthood for six yeSrs and saw the evil they do even sued them after I was terminated for not keeping quiet about there abuse of women and polices. I want to join the fight for right make abortion illegal
