Skip to comments.Mayweather: Abortion Caused Breakup, 'I'm Totally Against Killing Babies'
Posted on 05/02/2014 6:44:21 AM PDT by mandaladon
Floyd Mayweather, who faces the heavy-handed Marcos Maidana on pay-per view Saturday night from Las Vegas, tweeted out that his recent breakup stemmed from his fiancee's abortion. The Tweet quickly coaxed a delete.
"The real reason me and Shantel Christine Jackson @missjackson broke up was because she got a abortion," the undefeated welterweight tweeted, "and I'm totally against killing babies. She killed our twin babies."
Reportedly, Jackson, who had received a $10 million engagement ring from the fighter, initially told Mayweather she had miscarried. Since the breakup last year, she has moved on to a relationship with the rapper Nelly.
The publicizing of such private information, and the pro-life pronouncement, quickly elicited online outrage.
"Mayweather posting that announcement (basically called her a baby killer) plus ultrasound photos on FB is abusive behavior," Sports on Earth writer Jessica Luther tweeted. She labeled Money Mayweather and his online followers "anti-choicers." Another writer sees the Tweet as a potential disqualification for buying the Clippers, an idea the sports world's highest-paid athlete floated earlier this week. "Reminder that Floyd Mayweather is interested in owning the Los Angeles Clippers," Michael Katz wrote at SB Nation. "That seems like a bad idea."

God Bless Him.
I don’t like Mayweather, but props to him if what he said is true.
Not politically correct but correct never the less. God bless him.
Way to go brother! We need more stories like this.
Never back down, never allow the left to define the issue.
No, pro-choice is “poor-choice”, wrong choice, horrible choice - it is murdering our children to appease the god of self...
I love it that he posted the pictures, not just the words. Now, I hope he learns that next time, maybe he should marry a woman beforehand and she’ll be a lot more likely to have his baby.
Next time, try marriage first. With a woman who values her soul and life in general. You know. A woman who loves God and wants to keep His commandments.
Well, it looks like he and the other champ — Manny Pacquaio share the same views on this issue.
Now let’s get on with the long awaited fight match and be done with it...
Basically? That's what she is. Her boyfriend is a millionaire athlete and there was no financial problem involved with raising the twins. This is violence and gross disrespect against the father as well if, indeed, he was the father.
What you said.
IMO a man who engages in activity that may result in the production of a child without assurance that any such child will be dealt with in a proper way is very nearly as guilty as the woman making the decision to abort.
Don’t run around sowing wild oats, and then act put upon when somebody mows them.
I'm losing track of the positions that are being kicked around as disqualification for a prominent position in the business world.
In the last month or so: pro-traditional marriage, not wanting your mistress to bring black guys to your games, and now pro-life.
There seems to be a movement afoot to marginalize anyone with traditional beliefs.
You hit the nail on the head. In order to be allowed to be anywhere in public life anywhere, you must have liberal positions. You must never have said anything which is opposed to the liberal views of the issues. That’s where we are headed.
LOL!!!! I wonder how many times we'll be hearing this over the next few months. How many other things will Liberals bring up as disqualifications for owning the Clippers?
Oh My! TWO “Anti-choicers” duking it out?
Good for him! And he needs to be married before having sex now..with a godly lady.
Jessica Luther discussing her activism as part of the Orange Shirts movement during the summer of 2013. Luther was present at Democratic Congresswoman Wendy Daviss filibuster and commented that it represented a particular moment of history in the making. With the use of social media, Luther was able to connect globally to those desperate for news from the Capitol floor. Her activism and role in creating history this summer coincides with her dissertation that examines the English empire, slavery, and the history of the body in Barbados. Womens bodies, Luther argued, represent sites over which politicians attempt to exert control. Where some contemporary social commentators are surprised at the attention to abortion rights during an economic recession and politically divided period, Jessica said this is exactly what one would expect during times of crisis if one examines the historical record.
Michael Katz - SB Nation: If you don't agree with me you have no right to own an NBA team. Never mind that 90% of the players are probably racist in private, have beat up at least one girlfriend and had numerous kids with numerous women, many have done and still do drugs, been arrested, etc.
No Clippers for Mayweather.
Michael Katz - aka punk.
Post of the morning!!!
very nearly entirely as guilty as the woman
“Post of the morning!!! “
Yes lets take an opportunity to perhaps bring people to Christ or at least push a pro-life attitude using an extremely high profile globally known athlete, and turn it into a bash fest about how stupid he was and if he had only been perfect his babies wouldn’t have been murdered.
Yes, thats going to further Gods glory and save millions of babies from being murdered.
And the communists celebrate at the hateful Christians.
And we both know that it will intensify.
I’m not a Mayweather fan, but I feel bad for him here. His kids were murdered. If I was in this same boat, I’d dump her too.
Almost but not quite.
He is every bit as guilty of producing new life without being responsible enough to provide for it, and he is responsible for his potential children open to destruction at someone else’s whim.
But that isn’t quite as bad as actually making the determination to destroy human life for sake of convenience.
He wasn’t married to her.
He didn’t want to use a condom or abstain.
He is guilty too.
Disagree. Equally guilty.
She was engaged to a wealthy man, gets pregnant, and aborts the baby. Doesn't sound like what a rational woman would do, UNLESS the baby wasn't his, and she didn't think she could get child support from him once he found out.
My bet is that she was merely a selfish b*tch and “didn’t want to be punished with a baby.”
No, I don't think so. She's approaching 30, and her looks won't last much longer, with her partying lifestyle. A baby plus being married to Mayweather would have made her financially secure long after her looks went.
Looking further, it looks like she had the abortion after Mayweather voiced doubts as to whether the kid was his. If he had delayed the marriage until after the birth, in order to verify that the babies were his, then she would have been screwed if it turned out the twins were the children of some asset-less thug.
He’s guilty of sex outside of marriage and of choosing a low life woman.
He’s not guilty of murder.
Nobody said he was guilty of murder.
Sex outside of marriage, apparently.
Failure to use a condom or abstinence to avoid pregnancy or STDs, apparently.
Doesn’t matter, we should be using this to condemn abortion and the lack of input men have into the process. Not throwing stones at him for being a sinner from our glass houses.
BTW, several posters on this thread have said he is equally guilty of murder as she is.
Men have huge input. Some of them refuse to use a condom even though they carry the HPV virus and know they could cause a pregnancy.
I have little pity for a man who refuses to take precautions and then complains about lack of input. He had ALL the input and control at one time. He gave it away for a few minutes of pleasure. It is very sad.
lol yeah ok
“Disagree. Equally guilty.”
Nonsense. Marriage wouldn’t have prevented her from killing the children. Child support would have amounted to millions of dollars, whether he cooperated with raising the kids or not, so it wasn’t about money or lack of resources. He asked her to marry him after the pregnancy a gave her a $10 million engagement ring, so it clearly wasn’t about a lack of committment. She did not want to have kids, plain and simple. There’s no reason to believe there would ever have been any different outcome with her.
Men who have intercourse without marriage are suborning abortion just the same as women. End of story.
I do not for one second consider irresponsible men...bad as they are
Equally responsible to women who singularly have the legal power to kill their unborn
A little man resentment tripping here
Nor will marriage save squat....a woman can claim any matter of issue and trot down to her gyno and kill the baby....easy in lib states...harder in Mississippi
Women killed 50 million babies in America....not men..they pulled the triggers...no one put a gun to their heads
Yes...sex only in marriage in an ideal world but how many here did that...5% at most
We as a culture...including here....grope to excuse virtually any badly behaving non white non male non Christian formerly oppressed sub group
In this case its baby killing women....blame the men equally
My life experience tells me the complete opposite
Women kill their babies for one reason almost entirely....and the man married or not can do little to stop her.
I have seen abortions in Florida and New York City done totally without husband’s consent
Its inconvenient is primary reason....plenty married career chicks abort for that reason alone....or worry about their figure.
Used to be shame when I was little.
But shame was thrown under the bus.
I always appreciate a coherent and concise response. Thanks.
Glad to be of help.
