Steph Curry’s Mom Reveals She Almost Aborted Him: “God Had a Plan for That Child”

Golden State Warriors’ all-star Stephen “Steph” Curry may be considered one of the greatest guards in NBA history. But more impressive than his 13 years in the NBA and all-time 3-point record is Curry’s unwavering faith in Jesus Christ.

In 2014, Curry told Decision magazine: “I know why I play the game, and it’s not to score 30 points a night, but it’s to use the stage I’m on. I’ve been put here for a specific purpose: To be a witness and to share my testimony as I go through it.”

In a 2015 article for Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the 33-year-old echoed that sentiment, writing, “I love that basketball gives me the opportunities to do good things for people and to point them towards the Man who died for our sins on the cross. I know I have a place in heaven waiting for me because of Him, and that’s something no earthly prize or trophy could ever top.”

While Steph Curry is a beacon of light and humility in a sport that often lacks much of both, new details this week reveal that Curry’s life was almost ended before it ever began.

In her new book, “Fierce Love: A Memoir of Family, Faith, and Purpose,” Curry’s mother, Sonya reveals her son was almost aborted at a Planned Parenthood clinic 34 years ago.

After having one abortion in high school, Sonya got pregnant again. In her new book she writes that as she was standing outside of the clinic, preparing to abort her second child, the Holy Spirit intervened in a way that changed her—and the outcome of Steph’s life.

“There could be no Stephen,” she said during a recent interview with Luke Norsworthy on the Newsworthy with Norsworthy podcast. “If I would have gone through that there would have been no Wardell Stephen Curry II.”

“God had a plan for that child,” she continued.

Reflecting on that fateful day outside of a Planned Parenthood, Sonya says she didn’t even understand what was happening at the time, but that she had to make “this one right decision.”
