Football star Cristiano Ronaldo alive today after abortion attempt failed
Cristiano Ronaldo is a Portuguese professional footballer who is often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. He is the father of four children and is currently dating model, Georgina Rodríguez. A fact that people may not know about Cristiano Ronaldo is that he was the victim of an attempted abortion:
"He is a child that I wanted to abort," said his mother. "God didn’t want that to happen."
In her biography, “Mother Courage,” Ronaldo’s mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro says that the star athlete was “an unwanted child,” and she asked doctors to abort him. The doctors, however, refused her request, so she attempted a DIY abortion. She writes that she drank boiled black beer and ran until she felt like she would drop.
Obviously her plan failed and today she says, “Everything I have, I owe to [Cristiano].”
Ronaldo eventually learnt that his mother tried to end his life while he was in the womb. When he found out Ronaldo joked his mother by saying, “Look mum, you wanted to abort and now I'm the one who's pulling the purse-strings in the house.” All joking side it must be shocking and hurtful for any person to hear that their mother tried to kill them before they were even born.
“I was made to be the best,” Ronaldo has said. “That’s how I live my life.” A life that never would have happened and a star who never would have been born, if doctors had aborted him as his mother initially wished out of fear and panic.
No person is ever truly unwanted. Every life has value and has a purpose for this world.
