Singing sensation Susan Boyle reveals that her mother was strongly advised by the dr. to have an abortion. Her mother was 45 and a mother of 8 rejected the advice due to her strong Catholic beliefs. The dr. advised her mother that they should not expect too much of the tiny baby as she would never amount to much. Wrong again. I wonder how many Susan Boyles have not been born...congrats to the mother for standing up to the dr.
