R&B susperstar Toni Braxton is in the process of releasing her tell all memoir. In her book, Unbreak My Heart, Toni opens up about her autistic 11-year old son.

Braxton opens up about he she things that God gave her son autism because she once had an abortion.

Via The Frisky:

“I was suddenly faced with a choice I’d never thought I’d have to make. Amid my major misgivings about abortion, I eventually made the gut-wrenching decision… In my heart, I believed I had taken a life — an action that I thought God might one day punish me for. … My initial rage was quickly followed by another strong emotion: guilt. I knew I’d taken a life… I believed God’s payback was to give my son autism.”

But she later appeared to split the blame with vaccinations, writing, “Maybe it’s just a coincidence that after my son’s first MMR vaccine, I began to notice changes in him.”

However, Braxton backtracked a bit during a recent interview with People Magazine, saying, “I thought I was being punished for having an abortion. But I realized there is nothing wrong with my baby. He just learns differently.”
