During the #FreeBritney movement several years ago when there was global outrage via social media over Britney Spears’ conservatorship, pro-lifers were a part of the crowd speaking out, disgusted that she was being forced to have an intrauterine device (IUD) against her will. Now, Spears is back in the news again for another life decision that wasn’t entirely her own — this time, it was an abortion. Here’s what her new memoir has revealed:
In an excerpt of her upcoming book (entitled “The Woman in Me” to be released on October 24, 2023) which was shared exclusively with People Magazine, Spears disclosed that while she was dating singer and actor Justin Timberlake between 1999 — 2002, she became pregnant.
According to Spears, it was news she wasn’t expecting, but it was good news all the same.
She wrote, “It was a surprise, but for me, it wasn’t a tragedy. I loved Justin so much. I always expected us to have a family together one day. This would just be much earlier than I’d anticipated.”
However, like many men having sexual intercourse in relationships which they don’t take seriously, Timberlake did not feel the same way. Spears alleges in her book that without his disapproval of the pregnancy, she would have kept their preborn child, continuing:
“But Justin definitely wasn’t happy about the pregnancy. He said we weren’t ready to have a baby in our lives, that we were way too young. I’m sure people will hate me for this, but I agreed not to have the baby. I don’t know if that was the right decision. If it had been left up to me alone, I never would have done it. And yet Justin was so sure that he didn’t want to be a father.
“To this day, it’s one of the most agonizing things I have ever experienced in my life.”
One of the tragic ways our society has been indoctrinated by the abortion lobby is that men and women who become pregnant unexpectedly believe they can abort their preborn child in order to not become Mom and Dad — but the scientific reality is that they already were. The overwhelming majority (96%) of American scientists agree: after sexual activity has caused an egg and sperm to meet, a new life was created the very moment of fertilization or conception.
Timberlake may not have wanted to act like a father, but he already was one.
Despite adoption being an alternative option to parenting, Spears contends that Timberlake’s reaction eventually convinced her to abort their child — and unfortunately, this problem isn’t limited to celebrities. Many women who undergo abortions report that they made their decision due to lack of support from partners, family, friends, or employers.
A 2023 study from the Charlotte Lozier Institute found that nearly 90% post-abortive women felt pressured into their abortions, and just like Spears, they were mentally traumatized afterwards. They reported feeling “significant negative emotion related to the abortion,” including intrusive thoughts and flashbacks, feelings of loss and sadness, and stress.
Tessa Longbons, the co-author of the study, said, “Abortion does not empower women. Quite the opposite, the abortion industry enables and gives support to those who seek to control women. This coercion can have long-lasting mental health repercussions.”
Our hearts go out to Spears and Timberlake’s preborn child who was never given the chance to live, Spears who is clearly still grappling with the abortion, and Timberlake as well, though he has yet to comment on this allegation. Men also suffer abortion regret — because despite not wanting to be a father at the time, they can understand years later that they already were.
Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins commented, “SFLA’s entire model, and our Standing with You support program, is about letting women know that they are not alone. Fear is a pressure point used to sell abortions, and Britney did not deserve that. Recovering from the violence of abortion can take time, and we hope she has a strong support system. We have resources at Standing with You, and people who would love to help.”
