Singer Cher spoke about three miscarriages she experienced during her marriage to Sonny Bono. The first of these occurred when she was only 18 years old.
I had three miscarriages when I was young. The first happened at the age of 18. I was alone in our house. Sonny came home and I was crying and rolling on the floor,
— Cher tweeted (blocked in Russia).
After a visit to the doctor, Cher said she was “screaming in pain”, which is why the doctors rushed her to the hospital, straight to the operating room.
What would happen to me today?
— Cher asked, referring to the Supreme Court recently overturning a ruling in Roe v. Wade that guaranteed the constitutional right to abortion.
Cher, 76, also admitted in a message to her followers that she “never thought “to share this.
Mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, best friends — no woman in America is safe. Soon no sane person will be safe,
— she added.

The singer previously referred to the miscarriages she experienced while trying to have a baby with Bono, saying the experience was a “nightmare”.
It became a nightmare. People congratulated me because I was pregnant and then I lost my baby and they said, “Oh, we're sorry.” I thought: “God, I can't hear this anymore.”
In the end, Cher still managed to have children. When she was 22 years old, the son of Chaz Bono was born (daughter of Chastity at birth, who then made a transgender transition) from Sonny Bono. After her divorce from Bono, Cher married blues musician Gregg Allman, with whom she had a son, Elijah.
