“Searching for Answers in a beautiful and imperfect world…”
Those descriptions were pulled from Deanna’s Facebook profile. It could easily be added-Devoted Wife and Mom to seven beautiful children.
“Real life Disney Princess fighting for God, the unborn, the abandoned and the downtrodden.”
Anyone who has heard Deanna’s story cannot help but be moved.
Due to her response to a Planned Parenthood Tweet, it is likely that more people will hear her story.
A recent statement on Twitter from Planned Parenthood in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania was so vile and drew such blowback on social media that it was withdrawn with a weak attempt at an apology.
We need a disney princess who’s had an abortion / We need a disney princess who’s pro-choice / We need a disney princess who’s an undocumented immigrant / We need a disney princess who’s actually a union worker / We need a disney princess who’s trans”.

There are no words. There are too many words.
Fortunately Deanna found a way to put the sinister message into context. Her reply was posted in Medium.
Her article was entitled: “I was a Disney Princess and I had an Abortion.”
“In 1981, I worked at Disneyworld as a Singer/Dancer where my voice was used in recordings as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty for special events and ongoing shows. I performed on average 5 shows a day in front of Cinderella’s castle singing and dancing to “Some Day my Prince Will Come,” and “When You Wish Upon a Star.” At the age of 18, I became pregnant and had an abortion to keep my job as a singing princess. There was no pressure from the company or management to abort my baby. I didn’t tell them. But I made a decision on my own that I quickly lived to regret.
In the immediate days following my abortion, I struggled deeply. I continued to sing songs in front of the castle about dreams coming true, but eventually had to quit my dream job due to my inability to reconcile my decision within myself. I wanted to die.
Eventually, I found healing. It was an arduous struggle to navigate my personal grief. But by the grace of God, I am living an amazing life.
I married a great guy (my prince). A few years later I gave birth to a beautiful daughter. I conceived my son on the first trip back to Disneyworld following my departure. I went on to advocate for orphans and adopted 5 children. I am the mother of one daughter from Guatemala who was born to someone I see as a Guatemalan Princess ( 14 years-old at the time she gave birth to my little girl). She decided NOT to abort her baby. My daughter Matéa’s name means “Gift from God.”
Three of my children watched their mother die from AIDS in Ethiopia. Their Ethiopian Mother Bayoush resembled a gorgeous African Princess. They were left alone in the world, and we were blessed to adopt them. My son Alec was labeled invalid and almost sent to die in an orphanage known for rampant abuse in Ukraine. We adopted him from the baby home when he was 5. His mother (Princess) Tetyana made a difficult decision in giving birth to her baby and then abandoned him at the hospital at 2 days old. Her bravery in giving her child life before she died has been a gift to us.
We are a blended family of immigrants and American born children representing Jewish culture, Christian, British Royal heritage, Hispanic, Ukranian, African. And we all are a Disney family beautifully woven together by God’s grace and living in the shadow of Cinderella’s castle in Orlando…..

Deanna mentioned that she’s in the process of writing a book. The book will focus on “the incredible strength of Cinderella in overcoming life in the fire and ashes as an orphan herself. She was tortured and enslaved by the ugly stepsisters who didn’t understand her story and tried to rewrite her destiny by taking away her rightful position standing next to the King. Cinderella defied her stepmother and stepsisters in taking the throne by storming the castle gates adorned in supernatural favor to battle for her happily ever after.
Disney doesn’t need a princess who has had an abortion. For years feminists have been princess bashing because they clearly don’t really grasp the depth of the princess stories that have already been told of overcoming evil, beauty rising out of the ugliness of the world, empowering love that is willing to slay dragons, resurrecting life after evil witch potions threatens to poison and demanding true love in a world that wants to rewrite the happy ending into something less romantic. Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Merida, Ariel, Mulan all represent strength, power, grace, favor, determination and beauty out of ashes.
Abortion doesn’t empower….”
Deanna may be pretty but she can pack a powerful punch. This line really nails it:
“Maybe the reason Planned parenthood wants to rewrite the princess stories is because stories of evil witches in pursuit of killing off beautiful princesses has already been told. I guess they don’t like their part of the story.”
