Wow! Toni Braxton sat down for an interview and discussed one of the most personal bits of information imaginable with reporters. The New York Daily News  says she admitted to having an abortion during the same time as her bankruptcy trouble a number of years back. She is revealing it in a new tell all book called “Unbreak My Heart“.

According to the interview that she gave to ET, Toni claims that more than 10 years ago, she discovered she was pregnant by her then-boyfriend, soon to be husband Keri Lewis. (Of R&B band Mint Condition) Toni says she was in the middle of a six-month prescription of Accutane, which is a heavy-duty prescription acne treatment that can produce devastating side effects for fetuses.

She made the decision to terminate the pregnancy, as a result of this but in the book she admits that even if she hadn’t been on the medication, she would’ve made the same decision. According to Braxton, her reasons had more to do with convenience than fear her baby would be abnormal.

Toni confesses that for weeks after the procedure she was wracked with guilt as she grew up in an uber religious home where she was not even allowed to wear pants nor could she go to the movies. Homework was usually neglected in favor of learning up to 26 scriptures a week. In other words she felt that God was not happy with her for what she had done.

Years after the abortion, when Braxton’s youngest son, Diezel, was diagnosed with autism she felt she was to blame. In her book she wrote,

“Is God punishing me for that abortion?”

Braxton realizes that might sound odd, but says she

“believed that God’s payback was to give my son autism.”

She further felt that her own personal battles with heart disease, lupus and her parents divorce were God’s punishment for her decision to end her pregnancy.

Be sure to keep a look out for Toni’s book “Unbreak My Heart” to hear more about her story.

    No MissToni Braxton, you don’t know God’s attributes, he doesn’t punish mankind for sins. That was already paid for on the Cross. What he has be doing, is making the final preparation for the judgment, he has already made upon of sin, which is death. The only punishment mankind will receive is total separation from him when we reject the death, burial and resurrection of his son. He states if you confess your sin he will forgive our sin. Autism and all birth deflects are the manifestation of the judgments he pronounce on the world (creation) all the back in Genesis. When we sin the father weeps for he knows, we are then separated from him, and the enemy has an opportunity to deceive and ultimately destroy us. Chose life not death, life is his son.
