Mother Of NBA Star Steph Curry Shares Story of Abortion: ‘God Had A Plan For That Child’

By Movieguide® Staff

Sonja Curry, the mother of NBA superstar Stephen Curry, recently opened up about her experience with her first abortion and her decision to save her second child.

Sonja recently released a new book called “Fierce Love: A Memoir of Family, Faith.”

However, she said she struggled to share her story of aborting her first child.

“It almost could not go in the book,” she told Luke Norsworthy on the Newsworthy with Norsworthy Podcast.

But Sonja said that she felt the “Spirit was guiding” her as to what to include in her book. Ultimately, she shared how she chose to have her son, Stephen.

“But when it got to really the nuts and bolts of making certain decisions like I was faced with, there could be no Stephan,” Curry said. “If I would have gone through that, there would have been no Wardell Stephen Curry II. And you know, God had a plan for that child.

“And just the Spirit interceding at that moment, in a way that I didn’t even know at the moment as happening, just spoke to again the purpose, you know, of faith,” she continued, “And how might I best describe it? It’s just, you know, faith that OK, I don’t want to make this decision, because that would have been the second time.

“And I don’t want to make that decision again, and now I’ve just got to trust God to move forward with me having this child,” Curry added. “I don’t know what’s going to happen between Dell and I at that point. And I’ve just got to make this one decision. I’ve got to make this one right decision.”

Despite her decision with Stephen, Sonja expressed regret over her first abortion and said that she thinks about it “all the time.”

Sonja went on to have two sons, Stephen and Seth, whom both play in the NBA. Stephen is a 3x NBA Champion and 2x NBA MVP.

Stephen is also candid about his faith.

Future Hall of Fame point guard Stephen Curry recently became the best shooter in the history of the NBA.

“I’ve had crazy faith ever since I started playing basketball and to think, like this moment, was possible and again to do it in front of Ray… is special to have one of my own now,” Curry said after the game on TNT.

After the game, Curry received a jersey with the number “2,974” on it from Allen and previous record-holder Reggie Miller.

“This is very special,” Curry added. “I’ve been thinking about this number for a long time. I even got (the number) on my shoes. In basketball history, this is pretty special.”

“These two legends – I watched them growing up and understood what it meant to shoot the ball because of them and my dad… full-circle moment,” Curry said. “I’m blessed – blessed for sure.”
