Michele Bachmann Reveals A 'Devastating' Miscarriage Led Her To Foster 23 Children!

The Minnesota Republican, who is being compared to Sarah Palin, admits the experience inspired her to change her life and rethink the meaning of family.

Politician Michele Bachmann, who admits she’s “100 percent pro-life,” revealed the heartbreaking news that she suffered a miscarriage after an unplanned pregnancy. But the “devastating” loss inspired her to foster 23 children and refocus her life. And now look — she’s running for President!

In a town hall in Rock Hill, South Carolina on Wednesday (June 29), Michele, 55, discussed the miscarriage and her stance on abortion. She and her husband Marcus already had two children at the time of the loss and came to welcome three more of their own afterward. Not to mention the 23 foster kids, all teenage girls, who each stayed with the Bachmanns for a few months.

The experience led her to believe that “no matter how many children were brought into our life, we would receive them because we are committed to life.”

Bachmann has been compared to former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin, who also has five kids of her own — Track, 23, Bristol, 21, Willow, 16, Piper, 10, and Trig, 2 — and is staunchly pro-life.

Michele even discussed how the media would love to see her and arch-rival Palin, “mud wrestle,” adding, “And I’m not going to give it to ‘em. I have great respect and admiration for the Governor.”

What’s your stance on abortion, HollyMoms? And who would you support in a bid for the presidency, Michele Bachman or Sarah Palin?
