Nicole Scherzinger is one of the stars of ABC’s upcoming Dirty Dancing remake and she has revealed she almost turned down the role because of an abortion story involving her character.
The 38-year-old entertainer explained how her family is anti-abortion and she doesn’t want to promote it.
“I was like a crazy thing because, my family, my Papa’s a Bishop and my family’s really hardcore against abortion. So I got the role and I almost didn’t take it because I didn’t want to promote abortion, because my character has an abortion,” Nicole told the Daily Mail. “But I was like, hopefully they can learn from you know her ways and I can be a positive influence. My mum got pregnant with me when she was 17 and had me when she was 18. She chose.”
“Her parents were never going to let her have an abortion. So I came out, so I just want to you know encourage everybody to keep your babies,” she added.
