Jack Nicholson is "Positively Against" Abortion

Dear Readers,

Facebook has been really a help for me while I check the news headlines of my favorite websites.

But, just as with anything, since we shouldn't believe everything posted, one picture with an editorial had me doubting whether it was true or not?

It seemed to go against the Hollywood norm, the Liberal mindset of the Hollywood folks who have been pushing an agenda of making things like abortion, drug use, anti-Christian immorality, the gay lifestyle, and even pedophilia acceptable in American society today.

As far as I've seen, those that I've just listed appears to be the Hollywood agenda today.

So yes, when I saw the following picture with the editorial that accompanied it, I simply couldn't believe it.

Man has integrity. Rare in Hollywood.

After doing some research and reading the news story below for my self, I forwarded it along on Facebook with this comment:

"Wow, for some reason I didn't expect this from someone in Hollywood. I have the impression they all "like" killing babies as a form of Birth Control.

Jack Nicholson on Abortion: "I'm Positively Against It -- I Never Would Have Gotten to Live"

(CNSNews.com) -- Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson, 76, who is retiring from movies it was reported today, is, unlike many liberals in Tinseltown, a staunch pro-lifer who said in a 1984 interview about abortion, “I’m positively against it. I don’t have the right to any other view."

He added that it was the moral character of his mother and grandmother that ensured he himself had not been aborted.

The Academy Award-winning Nicholson was born on Apr. 22, 1937 to a woman named June Frances Nicholson, who was 17 years old at the time and a showgirl dancer.

Jack was raised by his maternal grandparents, John Nicholson and Ethel May, believing they were his real parents and that June Frances was his sister.

Jack Nicholson did not find out until 1974, after his mother had died of cancer, that June Frances was his real mother.

In the 1984 Rolling Stone interview, Jack Nicholson described his mother and the life she had lived and also talked about abortion.

He said, “I’m very contra my constituency in terms of abortion because I’m positively against it. I don’t have the right to any other view.”

June Frances Nicholson, mother of actor Jack Nicholson.

“My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life,” said Nicholson. “[If June and Ethel had been] of less character, I never would have gotten to live. These women gave me the gift of life.”

“It’s a feminist narrative in the very pure form,” said Nicholson. “They trained me great, those ladies. I still, to this day, have never borrowed a nickel from anybody and never felt like I couldn’t take care of myself. They made the imperative of my self-sufficiency obvious.”

Nicholson disclosed that he never learned who his father was because the only people who really knew were his mother, June Frances, and his grandmother, Ethel May, and they had died before he even learned, in 1974, the true identity of his mother.

"[T]hey never told anybody," said Nicholson.

June Frances had married showman Donald Furcillo (in October 1936) six months prior to the birth of her son, John Joseph “Jack” Nicholson.

But Furcillo was already married and, also partly because of Furcillo’s reported drinking, the marriage to June Frances did not work out.

In further describing his mother in the interview, Nicholson said, “June and I had so much in common. We both fight hard. It didn’t do her any good not to tell me, but she didn’t because you never know how I would’ve reacted when I was younger. I got a job in Mexico when June was dying. First time with a studio, a lot of weeks. Sandra [Jack’s wife 1962-68] was pregnant with Jennifer [Jack’s daughter], and June was in a terminal state. She looked me right in the eye and said, ‘Shall I wait?’ In other words, ‘Shall I try and fight this through?’ And I said no.”

Nicholson was raised a Roman Catholic, the religion of his mother, and grew up in Neptune City, New Jersey.

He has won three Academy Awards, including best actor for his role in the 1975 film “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” and the 1997 film “As Good as It Gets.”

RadarOnline.com reported on Sept. 4 that Jack Nicholson was retiring from the movie business apparently, at age 76, because of memory loss problems.

Jack Nicholson has starred in at least 65 films since 1958.

For me, it is nice to find out that I'm wrong in that not all of Hollywood is for the killing of babies.

I connect Liberals, and especially Hollywood Democrats, with abortion simply because that's who "normally" supports abortion.

What makes me angry are the Liberals who come out after a shooting like say what took place at Columbine or at Sandy Hook Elementary, and blame God.  Or use the tragedy to infer that since God "allowed" that to happen, that there must not be a God.

It seems almost like clockwork that some liberal will ask where was Jesus Christ in those situations, why didn't my Christian God do something to prevent that sort of thing from taking place?

It bothers me because of something that I was told once upon a time by an old man who believed in God and fate.

He told me this:

"With every child that is born, a coin is tossed as to whether that child will be good or bad. If bad, than he or she could come to no good and may end up running with a bad crowd or ending up in prison.

If good, than he or she could possible be the one who will stop a senseless killing, save a child from a burning building, rescue a  stranded hiker, raise good children him or herself, or even be the one to find a cure for cancer.

With every abortion, we kill the one that God may have sent to do his good work to stop things like Columbine and Sandy Hook from happening  - or from maybe finding the cure to AIDS or cancer or some other evil that takes people before their time.

So when someone says, 'where was Jesus?' or 'Why didn't God stop this from happening?' ask yourself if maybe God had tried but we aborted the ones he sent to stop it?"

The old man's logic always seemed right to me.

And yes, Jack Nicholson reaffirms that very thing.

If he were aborted, look at what sort of entertainment, what great acting, we would have missed out on.  Look at what good we would have never gotten.
