Former Pussycat Dolls singer Kaya Jones divulged that she had three abortions in the past and has experienced grief and distress about killing her babies. She said the emotional consequences of the procedures has been “painful beyond measure,” and that you “never get over it.”
“It is something that you will live with for the rest of your life, and when it hits women at a later time, it is something that is so painful,” she told Christine Yeargin on the Speak Out podcast.
Jones said she received her first abortion as a teenager due to a failure with birth control. “I was very young — in the music industry, not receiving any guidance other than what I believed,” she said. “And I was on the birth control pill at that time, so I figured, ‘Well, the pill didn’t work’ — and it actually didn’t, so I didn’t feel that that was murder. I didn’t have any understanding of it. I didn’t speak to my family about it.”
As a member of the Pussycat Dolls, she got pregnant a second time and was told to “get rid of it…At that point, because I had already gone through an abortion previously, I didn’t think it was that big of a deal.”
When she was 30, she got pregnant a third time as a result of rape. Even though she was leaning toward keeping the baby, complications with the pregnancy and associated stresses led to the third abortion.
But as time went on, the emotional trauma resulting from the procedures convicted her, and she became a pro-life advocate.
Raised in a Christian home, she strayed from the Lord until an appearance on Tomi Lahren’s show on The Blaze in 2017, when she publicly declared her faith and said she prays to Jesus.
Following that appearance, she felt “God did want me to continue working in the music world and … was going to position the right people into my life,” she told the Christian Post. Jones collaborated with singer Jason Crabb on his Christian album “Unexpected,” which won a Grammy Award in 2019.
She continued to be an outspoken pro-life advocate after her return to faith. “Unfortunately, people don’t want to talk to young women about it in the way that I feel we should start talking to young women about it,” she said. “Instead of just demonizing it or putting all these regulations, we have to come up with some kind of understanding of the damage.”
“When you’ve had one, you think you can keep having them,” she continued. “You don’t think it’s a big deal, and I genuinely think our culture has turned it into a form of — contraception.”
After her spiritual awakening, she recognized how flawed her thinking had been. “Nothing on me in that moment said, ‘Caution, this is a lie.’ Nothing was saying that. And I was in a lie in that moment. There was nothing beautiful about me. I was tainted, I was destructive, I was destroyed, I was completely in chained and bonded to the devil or the enemy or the realm of death, if you will, where I was living in my worst self.
“We’re all mothers of dead children if you’ve gone through an abortion,” she lamented. “You will regret it your whole life. 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.”
