Simone Biles took to her Instagram stories to ask her fans to share their “unpopular opinions”.

One of her fans wrote "abortion is wrong" and she disagreed.

“I already know this is going to start the biggest argument & may even lost followers BUT. I’m very much pro-choice. Your body. Your choice,” Simone replied.

“Also for everyone gonna say ‘just put it up for adoption,’ it’s not that easy and coming from someone who was in the foster care system TRUST me, foster care system is broken and it’s TOUGH, especially on the kids & young adults who age out.”

“Adoption is expensive… I’m just saying. And don’t even come at me if you couldn’t keep a mask on or refused to wear one.”



The American gymnast herself spent time in foster care system. At the time, child services determined that her mother was unfit to care for her and her three siblings.

She was later adopted by her grandfather and step-grandmother, Ron and Nellie.

Her opinion on abortion drew criticism. One person wrote in a now deleted tweet "Thoughts with all the kids in the foster care system today being told by @Simone_Biles that their lives are worth nothing and are better off dead. #SimoneBiles #abortion.".

"DO NOT misconstrue my words," the four time Olympic gold medalist fired back. "That is not at all what I implied. I did NOT say I support to abort rather than to put them through the foster care system. What I did imply is that you should not control someone elses body/decision. Let’s be real what you care about is control"



"I have forever & will continue to support foster kids. AS I WAS ONE. I’ve been an advocate for foster kids and the system but you wouldn’t know that because you don’t follow me, you just like to open your mouth."



"also if you have a fake account don’t even talk to me. Y’all piss me off to no end. I’m done because you’ll twist my words however it feels fitting to spew hate. Also if anyone is seeing this just know I support you doing whatever feels fitting for YOU."
