Amid the left’s “shout your abortion” fanaticism it’s especially important when a public figure makes headlines for sharing a different perspective. That’s just what former Pussycat Dolls singer Kaya Jones has done.
Speaking to Students for Life’s Christine Yeargin on the group’s “Speak Out” podcast, Jones confessed not only that she had three abortions prior to following Jesus Christ, but how those abortions have affected her since.
She got the first abortion as a teenager when her birth control failed; the second came when she was in the Pussycat Dolls and she was pressured to “get rid of it”; and she got the last one after she was raped by an ex-boyfriend.
After the first abortion, Jones said she “didn't think it was that big of a deal” since she had already had them.
"After the first one, you don’t think you’ve done anything wrong. It’s been normalized and what is a line until you’ve crossed it. You don't know what a line is. Once you cross that line, it’s a very slippery slope to continue to cross those lines," she said. “I didn’t feel that it was murder…I didn’t have any understanding of it. I didn’t speak to my family or anyone about it. I just went and did it.”
Jones cautioned against “demonizing” women who have had abortions and hoped by opening up about her experience that some women may not make the same choices she did.
“I've gone through it all. I will assure you, you will regret it your whole life,” she said about having an abortion, even in the case of rape. “Even if I become a mother tomorrow, and I’m happily married and all is well, I’m still going to regret the three children I did not have.”
Jones has been making headlines for years for speaking candidly about her experience in the Pussycat Dolls. In 2017, she opened up about how the group was more like a "prostitution ring."
"My truth. I wasn't in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring. Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $," she said at the time.
She has since taken her life in a drastically different direction, losing her previous fame, connections, and fortune to follow Christ and speak her mind -- a decision she says was difficult but worth it.
