MSNBC Host: ‘I Thank God and Country . . . Abortion Was There to Save Me’

During MSNBC’s “The Cycle” on Friday, co-host Toure celebrated the 40th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion by telling the story of when he and an old girlfriend decided to have an abortion 15 years ago.

“In some ways that choice saved my life,” Toure said.

He said he was extremely thankful abortion was an option because wasn’t ready to be a dad and going through with the pregnancy would have just made “a mess of three lives” because she “wasn’t the one.”

“I thank God and country that when I fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family I have now. And I pray that safety net stays in place,” Toure said.

Being able to choose to have an abortion makes for a “stronger America,” he concluded.

Fifteen years ago Touré Neblett was 27 years old. By the time I was that age I was divorced with three kids.

I can see why he was relieved. With his income the child support payments would have been a real bitch. Imagine how inconvenient 18 years of visitation would have been.

But I’m sure he was very supportive of his girlfriend and assured her that he would support whatever decision she made. He probably even volunteered to pay for the abortion.

    at that age I was married with kids. Isn’t funny how getting rid of a child made his life better. Maybe adoption would have made the kid’s life better. For someone who sees racism everywhere killing a black child because it was inconvenient is just fine

    Neblett is an embarrassment to humanity. Imagine that genome continuing. Perhaps it is a good thing they didn’t keep it.

  5. 49erDweet (D) says:

    Wish you guys would stop talking about him. While he’s here Webster’s unabridged is missing their illustration for “douche-bag”.

  6. Lulu says:

    Are his current kids disposable too? If his wife becomes inconvenient in his quest for self aggrandizement is he going to view her and her children as as another responsibility to be dumped when HE, the center of the universe, has another “bad situation”? The “strength of the country” is based upon his ability to enable personal failings and horniness without responsibilities? What a weak ass shit.

  7. lildoggy4u says:

    “she wasn’t the one” and neither was “it” I guess.

  8. Anthony says:

    Touré’s interested in women?!

    Who knew…..

  9. swanspirit says:

    In a committed relationship with someone he knew wasn’t the one ?? What were you there for Toure? When did she find out you knew she wasn’t the one When she became pregnant ?

  10. honoracarrolll says:

    I think Toure is utterly obnoxious, but I too am glad that his sexual partner was able to have an abortion if she wished to have one. Am I the only one here that still supports reproductive rights for women?

    • myiq2xu says:

      I am opposed to reproductive rights for Toure.

    • myiq2xu says:

      I support reproductive rights for women. I am pro-choice.

      But I am uncomfortable with the idea of abortion as an alternative to responsible adult behavior.

      Abortion should be a necessity, not a convenience.

          Quadruple it. Anyone who thinks abortion is of no more consequence than blowing snot out of your nose is subhuman. I believe it should be available because it’s going to happen and therefore needs to happen safely. But I’m sick and tired of people pretending it’s not what it is – the ending of a life. Being a woman and having sex carries with it the risk and burden of pregnancy. It sucks, but that’s what it is. If it’s not okay to smother an infant because the baby’s inconvenient, in what universe is it okay to scrape the baby out of the womb for the same reason? An unborn child and an infant are equally dependent upon someone else for life. I am sick, sick, sick to death of the arbitrary argument that says — I get to have my fun, I get not to accept the forseeable consequence. Yes indeed, there are circumstances in which the termination of a preganancy is the best of some horrible options. But stats say 55 million babies were aborted last year. Do not try and tell me they were all deformed or the result of incest/rape.

    • leslie says:

      You are not alone, honoracarroll. I support reproductive rights for women and always have.
      What I wish is that HIPAA applied to individuals. Because in this case, he’d be fined up his a$$ and possibly jailed for disclosure of this information.

    • angienc (D) says:

      FOR women is the key — most of us here are FOR women having the ability to have an abortion. The problem here is that Toure isn’t one. Seriously, WTF is he acting like it was HIS decision & HIS right to an abortion? I don’t give a fuck that his former girlfriend’s CHOICE was the one that he secretly hoped for/was relieved when she took that course. It’s not about HIM.

  11. DeniseVB says:

    Just wow. How soon will this woman be identified when his friends from 15 years ago do the math ? Her parents? Her current husband? Children? Neblett’s family?

    This is such a deeply personal and private topic to make it all about him. Yet a good story to push his political agenda, perhaps he was making it up?

  12. driguana says:

    Neblett is a d-bag and a scumbag….a pathetic excuse for a”journalist” or even an “essayist” as he calls himslef….but certainly fitting for all the “bags” at MSNBC! And speaking of “rights” again…just what is a “right”…where does a “right” come from?…remember at the RNC, it was stated that a “right” comes from either God or the constitution…at the DNC, it was stated that a “right” comes from the government. So just what are “reproductive rights for women”? Where do they come from? And in the ever growing list of the battle of “rights”, is there a point at which a “right” becomes a “wrong”….that certainly seems to be the argument when it comes to 2nd amendment “rights”.

    And having lived in West Africa for almost 4 years, one knows the importance of the name Toure (sorry, it has an accent on the end that I can’t figure out how to do). It basically means “of the Malinke, Malinka, Mandinka, Mandingo (various spellings) ethnic group and is common throughout Senegal, Mali and Guinea, in particular. Sekou Toure was the first president of Guinea….Ali Farka Toure was a renowned Malian musician……Toure Neblett is a racist, d-bag/scumbag essayist and not a true member of the Malinke ethnic group!

    If you agree that abortion should be safe, legal and rare, then we are on the same page. Now that U.S. women have free birth control, I hope the number of elective abortions plummets. It always is a woman’s responsibility not to get pregnant, because she has the ultimate control over her body. I support abortion in cases of rape and incest, and where the physical and psychological health of the woman would be harmed by the pregnancy. Abortion should not be used as birth control; if it is, then it should be taxed as a penalty.

    • indigogrrl1 says:

      Who says women in the US have free birth control? My neice has to pay $30 bucks more each month because of Obamacare. And what do uninsured young women do? I think its an Obot delusion that birth control is “free”. (im not calling you an obot Im just sick of hearing that from them).

  14. yttik says:

    I’m a firm believer in castration. I think it should be safe, legal, and rare. I don’t believe Toure should be punished with a penis just because he “fell into a bad situation.”

    Speaking of “falling,” what is it with people?? I fell into bed, I fell into a bad relationship, I fell in love. You didn’t trip and fall, people! It’s not like you didn’t look where you were going and accidentally crashed into sexual intercourse.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Pre Roe v. Wade, my sister was the classic “struggling actress” in NYC doing bit parts on soap operas. She “fell” for one of the leads and got pregnant. He took care of everything including finding the 5th Avenue doctor who did “D&C’s”, cough, money, cough. The actor went on to have his own short lived t.v. series in the 70’s and was never heard of again. Karma baby 😀 (and yes, even if I could remember his name, I wouldn’t mention it)

    • votermom says:

      And lol at “You didn’t trip and fall, people! It’s not like you didn’t look where you were going and accidentally crashed into sexual intercourse.”

  15. leslie says:

    Words fail here, but thoughts do not. This person is a complete human waste product. That he would even speak about this shows utter disrespect for every and anyone whom he knows. He has no regard for feelings, privacy, and “other”.
    Why would anyone – especially his current family – feel safe with him?

    His mother must be so proud.

  16. conner43 says:

    I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea that anyone would have sex with that jerk.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    And we have a closer 😀

  18. Constance says:

    I’m pro choice but think abortions should be safe legal and rare. I am also OK with the states deciding their own law on the issue. The USA is huge and there are different cultures here. We don’t need one of the cultures dictating to the rest of the cultures.

    That said if the elitists in media and liberals go around voluntarily offing their progeny it isn’t any great loss to the rest of us.

    i really hope douché got her permission to share this, because he outed her to people who know she dated him around that time. i simply can’t imagine someone being happy that he brings this up 15 years later. and the idea that god is cool with abortion under these circumstances – that really is a new one.
