Jamie Lynn Spears and her daughter on Double Dare competition in 2019.

Jamie Lynn Marie Spears, the younger sister of pop star Britney Spears, shared in a new book how her family tried to make her have an abortion and take her own baby’s life when she became pregnant as a teenager.

Life News reports:

In December 2007, Spears was subject to significant media attention and controversy after announcing she was pregnant at age 16. Spears stopped acting and making albums for half a decade after her baby was born but her child Maddie almost didn’t make it.

TMZ further reports:

In one passage, Spears says people from her inner circle, “… came to my room trying to convince me that having a baby at this point in my life was a terrible idea … ‘It will kill your career. You are just too young. You don’t know what you’re doing. There are pills you can take. We can help you take care of this problem … I know a doctor,’” adding, “everyone around me just wanted to make this ‘issue’ disappear.”

Jamie Lynn says flatly, “…everyone was certain that termination would be the best course of action.”

Spears says her phone was taken away to stop her from communicating with people outside her immediate circle … the goal being to keep everything on the down-low.

Jamie Lynn claims she wasn’t even allowed to tell Britney she was pregnant, saying, “I needed her more than ever and she wasn’t able to help me in my most vulnerable time … To this day, the hurt of not being able to tell my sister myself still lingers.”

Fortunately, Spears chose life instead of giving into the demands of her family, welcoming her daughter into this world.

Bless you, for doing the right thing. My daughter became pregnant when she was 15 and her dad and I were at odds about the child. He wanted her to kill the child and I wanted a granddaughter. I fought hard for that little child and today she is 27 years old and a big joy to me.
