    Default God Gave Toni Braxtonís Son Autism Because She Got an Abortion

    In Toni Braxton’s memoir, Unbreak My Heart, she says God punished her for her abortion by giving her son autism. The lord works in mysterious and dickish ways.

    “I was suddenly faced with a choice I’d never thought I’d have to make. Amid my major misgivings about abortion, I eventually made the gut-wrenching decision… In my heart, I believed I had taken a life — an action that I thought God might one day punish me for. … My initial rage was quickly followed by another strong emotion: guilt. I knew I’d taken a life… I believed God’s payback was to give my son autism.”


    Braxton was on the prescription acne medication Accutane when she found out she was pregnant. One of the side effects of the drug is birth defects so she chose to get an abortion. When she later had children with her now ex-husband, she discovered her son Diezel had autism. She eventually came to the conclusion that God had pointed at her like an angry clinic protestor and screamed, “Baby killer!,” before putting autism in her son.


    Well… um… at least she’s not blaming vaccines so there’s that. Oh, wait. I just didn’t read far enough.

    “Maybe it’s just a coincidence that after my son’s first MMR vaccine, I began to notice changes in him,” she writes, saying that her son wasn’t as spirited as when she brought him home from the hospital. She writes that her son wasn’t responsive to affection.

    It's sad that she blames herself for her son's autism, but she sounds like she has some major issues. It's almost impressive how she manages to be both offensive and alarmist on three hot button issues in a single interview, though.

    ETA: Just reread. Not an interview, an except from her memoir. Still impressively crazy.

    Self centered cunt. What kind of god worth worshipping would give a child a neurological disorder for something it's parent did anyway?

    At my derm's office, they make you sign a form promising you are on birth control and that you will terminate any pregnancy you might concieve while on accutane. I don't know if that's legal or not, but they are dead serious about it. Pregnancy while on accutane is bad news.

    As to the rest of this story...

    God punished her for having an abortion by giving her son autism? Wow. What a complete bunch of crazy ass bullshit that is. Because autism is a punishment from God. Wow. Just. Wow. Funny, I have always felt my son was a blessing. Guess I am being punished. Honestly, even just typing that makes me sick. It couldn't be further from the truth.

    Yet another celeb who thinks autism is the worst thing in the world. That's just great. That will really help develop understanding of neurodiversity in our world.

    I thought the same thing that if you were of child bearing age you had to be on birth control if you were taking accutane , it's a class X drug which has the worse side effects. The fact that she got pregnant while on Accutane just shows how irresponsible she is. She should be ashamed that she equated a child with Autism to some wrath of God .

    That's insanity. They have absolutely no right to make anyone sign any such thing. The first tenant of medicine is Do No Harm. Why would you make a promise swear harm to a child? Oh, that's right, to cover their asses from lawsuits. What a bunch of mother fucking assholes.

    I'm sure her son is going to love finding out that his mother considers him a punishment.

    In an interview about her book, she said

    "I thought I was being punished for having had an abortion. But I realized there is nothing wrong with my baby. He just learns differently."

    But you can't take that shit back. And it's out there. Like Faithanne said -- it's going to be just lovely when he reads/hears this load of crap from his own mother. Same with McCarthy's son. She wrote some stuff in her book that is going to hurt her child. Fucking idiots.

    No,Bella. They are trying to do no harm. This is from Webmd.

    Accutane, also known as isotretinoin, is known to cause birth defects, including brain, heart, and face deformities, if women take it while pregnant. Because of this, it is recommended that women of childbearing age taking the drug be tested for pregnancy before starting it and then repeatedly during their treatment. They should also use two forms of birth control while on the medication.

    I can't deal with that kind of thinking. When I was very young Grandma Kitty used to have some Irish friends who'd come over to stay and one of their sons was in a wheelchair. The mother had been told by their priest that it was God's punishment for some sin she had committed and not sought absolution for. Even though I wasn't into double digits I can remember thinking that their God must be a total dick to say something like that.
