Cher talks about her first miscarriage at age 18

Cher opened up about the multiple miscarriages she had experienced during her ill-fated marriage to Sonny Bono.

Monday night on Twitter, the “Goddess of Pop” said she had endured three miscarriages, the first of which was at the tender age of 18.

“I was alone in our house,” she says tweetedsaid her then-husband, Sonny Bono, found her “sobbing” and “rocking on our floor.”

After seeing a doctor, Cher said she was “screaming in pain,” prompting medics to rush her to the hospital and straight to the operating room.

“WHAT WOULD HAPPEN TO ME TODAY,” she asked, referring to the recent Supreme Court ruling Roe v Wade against abortion rights.

After a fan said they had “no idea” about Cher’s pregnancy losses, the singer replied that she “never thought” she would share.

“Mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, best friends… no woman is safe in America. Soon no healthy person will be safe,” she added.

The hitmaker “Believe” had two children later in life, and her first child, son Chaz Bono, was born when she was 22.

Cher later welcomed son Elijah Blue Allman, now 46, with her late ex-husband Gregg Allman.

The singer previously talked about her miscarriages while trying to have a child with Bono, saying the experience was a “nightmare.”

“It’s a spontaneous miscarriage, something that the fetus spontaneously aborts. It’s called an angry womb,” she told Parade magazine in 2010.

“After the third time, it became a nightmare. People would congratulate me for being pregnant, and then I wouldn’t be, and they’d say, ‘Oh, we’re so sorry.’ I thought, ‘God, I don’t want to hear this anymore.’”
