Stacey Dash in Middle of Abortion “I’m Keeping My Son”



Stacey Dash has confessed that she once almost had an abortion.  That was when she was doing drugs and pregnancy was something she didn’t want.  She was lying there with the IV in her arm and ready to abort her son.  She said that at that moment God spoke to her and she tore the IV out, saying “I’m keeping my son” and she left.  Her son is now 25 and Dash has never regretted her decision.

“When I got pregnant, I was doing a lot of drugs and I didn’t want to live.  I wanted to die. I was going to have an abortion. I was crying and I said to God, ‘Please tell me what to do.’ And God told me, ‘Keep your son.’ I ripped the IV out of my arm and I said, ‘I’m keeping my son.’”

Stacey has a new book out entitled, “There Goes My Social Life.”

“Sometimes my past is extraordinarily heavy.  That’s when I scream and cry until I feel like I can breathe again.”

Dash said that she was sexually abused as a child and started doing drugs:

“I couldn’t find happiness.  It got to a point where I didn’t even want to live anymore. The voice in my head was saying, ‘There’s nothing here for you.’”

Stacey explains how many inner city kids grow up with drugs and unwanted pregnancies:

“When you get stuff for free, you have no self-worth. When you have no self-worth, you become depressed, addicted and either abused or an abuser.  This is what perpetuates the cycle of violence in inner cities. We don’t need free stuff. We need opportunities.”

“When I say there should not be a BET channel or a Black History Month, I’m saying we deserve more.  I just hope people understand that I’m not judging; I’m coming from experience.”
