Jack Nicholson may be a Hollywood legend, but he is no liberal Hollywood sheep! When a Hollywood star cites conservative viewpoints, it’s akin to “coming out of the closet.” They risk their entire career and all of their famous friends.
Born in 1937 to a 17 year-old showgirl, Nicholson was raised by his maternal grandparents, John and Ethel May. Nicholson was raised to believe that his grandparents were actually his parents, and he did not find out the truth until his biological mother died of cancer in 1974.
Knowing that he likely would have been aborted had his mother had the chance, Nicholson is now a staunch anti-abortion activist.
“I’m very contra my constituency in terms of abortion because I’m positively against it,” he said recently, according to The Political Insider. “I don’t have the right to any other view. My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life.”
We applaud Nicholson for courageously fighting against the evil that is abortion, and we’re so glad he’s alive!
