‘Nowhere to go’: Former ‘Cats’ Broadway actor describes heartbreak after abortion

Former Broadway actor David MacDonald speaks at the 2011 Canadian March for Life.

OTTAWA, Ontario, May 16, 2011 ( – A former rising star on Broadway has shared how the abortion of his child sent him on a downward spiral that engulfed him in despair – something our sex-saturated culture had never prepared him for.

Canadian performer David MacDonald, 50, gave his testimony at a gathering of Silent No More Awareness following Canada’s March for Life, where several other men and women also described their abortion trauma.

Once a powerful singer, MacDonald’s voice at the podium sometimes barely rose above a squeak – his vocal cords destroyed, he says, because of the stress he suffered following the abortion of his girlfriend’s baby when MacDonald was 21.

When MacDonald first learned his girlfriend was pregnant, he thought abortion was the obvious answer.

“I didn’t want to hear that [she was pregnant], you see … I didn’t want the responsibility, I wanted the sex,” he said. “And so the easy way out was abortion. That’s what I thought. Just pay $300 and the problem goes away.

“Life is priceless. You can’t put a price on it. I tried to put a price of $300 on my child’s life. It didn’t work.”
