Jennifer Grey lived a life of pure excitement. In the midst of the madness, one night turned into a nightmare.

The Dirty Dancing star grew up with money, celebrities, and every trapping of power you can imagine. Along with these blessings came vices. She went to some very dark places at a very young age. After getting pregnant, this is how she described how she imagined raising her daughter would have been.

“When I try to imagine my own daughter at 16, playing house, essentially living with a grown-ass man, doing tons of blow, popping Quaaludes, and going to Studio [54] — not to mention being lied to, cheated on, then gifted with various and sundry STDs and unwanted pregnancies, it makes me feel physically ill. No teenager should be swimming in waters that dark.”

She wrote this in an article of People Magazine where she shared the story of aborting her child. “I feel so emotional,” she said after the Supreme Court ruled in the Dobbs v Jackson case. “Even though I’ve seen it coming, even though we’ve been hearing what’s coming, it doesn’t feel real.”

Grey shares her story as a testament to why abortion is so important. But for many, her story does precisely the inverse. Abortion encourages women to go to these dark places, to engage in these wicked things. This is because people pretend like abortion removes the consequences of these actions. In reality, it adds one much worse: the guilt of murder.

In her new “Out of the Corner” memoir, she explained that she wouldn’t have had any of what she had if it weren’t for her abortion. Grey told the Los Angeles Times:

“It’s such a grave decision. And it stays with you. I wouldn’t have my life. I wouldn’t have had the career I had, I wouldn’t have had anything. And it wasn’t for lack of taking it seriously.”

Grey refused to be a teenage mother and played a high price. But regardless of what she believed then or might believe now, no career is worth the life of another human being.

Worse still, her child probably would have been fine. Grey had some of the best support for both herself and her child known to man. Her family friends were incredibly well connected, wealthy, and prepared to care for a child in need. Moreover, they may have had a wide influence encouraging our culture to support women in need. Instead, she helped other young women repeat her wicked mistakes.

Children are an opportunity like no other. Many have said that the birth of your child is the first moment that your life has purpose. That drive, that purpose is a way out of the dark depths of despair. It’s a reason to fight harder, not a reason to give in.

Grey is wrong, she didn’t trade her child for a grand career, she traded a greater life for a lesser one. She traded a human life and a career that might have been harder, but richer, and much more meaningful, for something smaller: herself.

At the end of the day, she bought a lie that so many others do today. And it’s likely why studies show that so many young people completely miserable. It’s a lie that living for yourself will ever be fulfilling. This is a truth that most Americans today tend to forget: life is only worth living when it’s in service of something greater.

At least her unborn child is in heaven. Hopefully the day will come when Jennifer Grey can join her. But she won’t join her without repentance and faith. And one of the things she’ll have to repent of is the sin of murdering her unborn child.

Really Jennifer Gray? Is your heart so hardened that you are living in a false illusion every day hoping for a break in your career? How vile and disgusting! Why would you hope for the destruction of your own flesh? Why would you sell your own soul to gain the whole world? What profit is there in this? NOTHING! You are delusional! This world will pass away, so where will you be? Have you thought about Eternity? Do you really want to live Eternally in Hell? Hell is a place of torture forever. Is that where you want to live forever? Please reconsider your life choices and eternal consequences! PLEASE. Seek the Truth. Turn from your wicked ways! Don’t throw your life away, please don’t! Wake Up, Now! Jennifer it is not too late yet. REPENT, turn around. STOP condemning yourself for your past and receive forgiveness from Jesus. He knows you, and He has made a way for you to receive forgiveness of sin, and to receive Eternal Life, with a brand new beginning. The pain of your past is excruciating, but all is not lost, yet. TURN AROUND, NOW! Receive the forgiveness of the Most High GOD, and live a new life today and for all Eternity! May God reveal himself to you and grant mercy on your soul. May God Bless you and Help you Mightily. Amen.

Grey simply sacrificed her destined to be “1st Born” child on the Alter of Baal unborn child on the alter of Baal in order to get her lucrative career.
That is why it’s the 1st born that is sacrificed “Murder for Money”….it’s a pagan ritual thing…that the godless and the Pagans believe works.
The practitioner hearts become so hardened over time that they become unreachable as we see here.
