Stacey Dash says it was the choice she made not to abort her son that “saved” her life.

During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actress said she considered having an abortion when she got pregnant in her 20s, but believes God stopped her from doing so. (RELATED: Stacey Dash Thinks Transgender People Should Just Pee In The Bushes)

“God spoke to me and God told me, ‘Keep your son,'” Dash said. “And I did and he saved my life. My son saved my life. Had I not had my son, I would probably be dead right now.”

“I know I would.”

Dash said the birth of her first child gave her the courage to leave an abusive relationship.

“It took me having my son, and having something happen with my son there, for me to say, ‘No,'” she said. “My child will not go through this. My child’s life was more important to me.”
