Oprah Winfrey Thanked Her Mom Before She Died for Not “Getting Rid of Her” in an Abortion

April 19, 2019

Celebrity Oprah Winfrey wrote a moving piece about celebrating her first Mother’s Day after losing her mom in the May issue of her magazine

In it, the star remembered how, on her mother’s death bed, she finally found the words to thank her mother for not aborting her, the blog Female First reports.

Oprah’s mother, Vernita Lee, 83, died last November after a life full of struggles.

Her daughter said their relationship was “complicated,” but she wanted to make sure her mother knew that she loved her before she died.

“We had a complicated relationship, my mother and I — this I know for sure. Now that she’s gone, I understand it more clearly. When I left her on my second visit of the week, I was certain it was the last time I’d see her. Still, I could think of nothing more meaningful to say than ‘Goodbye, I’ll see you later.’ Pitiful for someone who’s made a career of connecting with people,” the celebrity wrote.

After going back home, Oprah said she felt uneasy and decided to visit her mother again.

“’Don’t be a hypocrite’, I chided myself. If this were anyone else, you’d tell them ‘Leave nothing unsaid’ – and yet you’ve said nothing,” she remembered.

Winfrey says she prayed for the right words to say. Later, she ended up getting inspiration from late singer Mahalia Jackson’s “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” — which she, amazingly enough, accidentally played on her phone by hitting the music app — and got her friend, gospel singer Wintley Phipps, to sing the song a cappella to her mother over FaceTime. After Phipps prayed for the family and said, “Have no fear, just peace,” Winfrey found the words to say to her dying mother.

That moment, she thanked her mother for choosing life.

“I know it must have been hard for you as a 17-year-old pregnant, scared girl in Mississippi,” Oprah said, recalling that moment. “Many people no doubt told you to get rid of that baby. To have an abortion or give me away. But you didn’t. And for that I thank you. I know you did the best you could with what you had. And for that I thank you. And look how it’s all turned out.”

Tragically, Winfrey is not pro-life. She promotes pro-abortion campaigns and politicians through her media empire. But she did see the value of her mother’s difficult decision to choose life for her as a young, struggling teenager.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
