Jack Nicholson’s mother became pregnant as a teenager and faced a lot of pressure to have an abortion. She persevered and chose to have the child. Jack was born on 22 April 1937 and later became one of the most famous actors in Hollywood. He himself is a great pro-life advocate.

Few people in Hollywood have had such a prolific acting career as Jack Nicholson. As a writer, director, producer, and actor Jack has received the most Oscar nominations. As a teenager his mother rejected the possibility of an abortion and thus irrevocably influenced her son’s views on life. ‘I don’t have the right to any other view. My only emotion is gratitude, literally, for my life,’ said Jack Nicholson, who is one of many pro-life advocates among celebrities.
