Abortion rights, that was really my generation’s fight. If President Trump wins this election and puts the judge he wants in, she will absolutely outlaw it and push women back into back-alley abortions… If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac.”

– Nicks

 
On all three points: so what? If ruthless ethical calculus is the order of the day, it doesn’t matter if some women resort to what James Taranto derides as “back hangers and coat alleys.” More Fleetwood Macs, right?

    They were pretty well drug-riddled. She may have had a deformed baby and had an abortion for that reason.

  2. stackja

    How sad for the baby who never knew.

  3. WolfmanOz

    Ronald Regan said it best:

    “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”

  4. JohnJJJ

    Yep. Choose drugs over children. The ME generation mantra.
    Perhaps the Wahhabis are right.

  5. Clam Chowdah

    That’s a lie. We wouldn’t have had the later, inferior Fleetwood Mac. We’d still have the original Peter Green band. Boring MOR cow.

    That has to go in Boomer Quotes.

  7. H B Bear

    Well that’s one way to rationalise killing your kid.

  8. Stevie Nicks: You Wouldn’t Have Fleetwood Mac If I Didn’t Abort My Child.

    And we’ll never know what the alternative could have been.

  9. Bad Samaritan

    Hmmm.

    And if Momma Nicks had decided to abort in early 1948?

    Stevie’s got a view on this?

    This sheila has always been a bimbo, so what’s new about her views being for airheads only?

  10. The price of fame was sacrificing her right to Molloch. No one tells you the true price. Nothing is free. I went to church with someone that learned the hard way and Abby Johnson can tell you also.

  11. Megan

    Well that’s one way to rationalise killing your kid.

    The Stevie Nicks of the world never, ever believed that they were killing an actual human being. They only saw an obstacle or barrier to pursuing their own self absorbed path through life and dealt with it as such.

    This comment totally confirms it.

  12. Luzu

    In her universe, her baby always ends up dead, either through an abortion in a clinic or some backyard job. Nowhere does she consider that maybe she could have had the baby and her music career. Women like this make my skin crawl.

    And a world without Fleetwood Mac. Would we really have noticed?

  13. Megan

    And Nicks and her husband were with the band a little under ten years before it all went to pieces. Who knows, their marriage may have survived with a child in it, and the band survived to make more music.

    All those sliding doors.

  14. caveman

    If Yoko Omo was aborted ,then The Beatles wouldn’t have broken up.

  15. John A

    Since I was never enamored of Fleetwood Mac, this so-called argument has no impact on me.

    Neither does it have any impact on any medical facts about the begetting, development and birth of a real human being.

    If people want to support choice, then choose at the begetting stage.

    How tedious.

  17. Bruce

    BoN:

    “How tedious.”

    I see what you did there!

    Yep; TDS really is.

    Condoms and personal responsibility dear, and it is said that chemists also sell the new fangled things called ‘The Pill’.

    “…………….she will absolutely outlaw it………….” – no she won’t you stupid dipstick. The worst that can happen is that it (abortion) gets pushed back to the States, as it should, and is therefore no longer a Federal issue.

  19. Rex Mango

    Am guessing Stevie Nick’s mum gave up the chance to be a rockstar by having a baby.

  20. Joanna Smythe

    Somebody needs to explain to this person that there are quite a few ways you don’t have to get pregnant in the first place and therefore don’t have to end the life of a potential human being and I’m not talking about abstinence.

  21. Stanley

    Fleetwood Mac ceased to be relevant after the departure of Peter Green.

  22. Bruce of Newcastle

    This tedious, Bruce:

    Stevie Nicks Contemplates Leaving Earth if Trump Wins: ‘We’re Not Welcome Anywhere’ … ‘I’m Thinking: Oh, Space’ (10 Oct)

    Rocker Stevie Nicks is contemplating leaving the United States if President Donald Trump wins re-election, saying that she is considering an extraterrestrial existence.

    Further away the better, lady.

  23. Scott Osmond

    Hmm, lots of women have successful careers both in and outside of the music industry and still have a family. It’s not a zero sum game. In fact it’s a slap in the face for those who do have both. Call me heartless but it’s probably just as well that people like this don’t reproduce.

  24. Up The Workers!

    So what precisely is she saying here?

    Is the murder of her baby MY fault?
    Or is it the fault of her fellow band members?
    Could it be the fault of all those who bought Fleetwood Mac music over the years?
    Did the dreaded President Donald Trump break out the secateurs and do it?
    Or was it a selfless act of philanthropy by her (or more particularly, her baby) which gave us the music?

    Maybe she has just imbibed far too much waccy-tabaccy over the decades and is now ding-batty enough to join the Dementiacrats?

  25. Rocker Stevie Nicks is contemplating leaving the United States if President Donald Trump wins re-election, saying that she is considering an extraterrestrial existence.

    That would mean that she’s simply returning home.

  26. Up The Workers!

    I wonder whether the Auschwitz Guards beefed bloviated and whinged as loudly or as much about the shocking infringement of their rights when old Adolf was defenestrated and civilisation took over once again?

    It must be a shocking thing when somebody tells you that you are not allowed in a decent, civilised society to murder people at will just because you are a sociopathic, clue-phobic Leftard.

  27. Grunter

    To extend the logic …

    If Stevie’s mum had aborted her, Fleetwood Mac would not have existed.

    Same action (abortion), same result (Fleetwood Mac does not exists), different path (path 1: Stevie does not exist path 2: Stevie exists).

    Which path would Stevie prefer? Exist or not?

    I do believe it’s checkmate.

  28. Tim Neilson

    It doesn’t seem to occur to Stevie that Amy is living proof that a woman CAN have kids and a successful career, thus totally disproving Stevie’s assertion.

  29. What if a cool wine aunt’s mother aborts her and therefore prevents eight further abortions 20-30 years later?

    You have a net gain of seven less abortions, ergo abortion can be unequivocally moral.

  30. Arky

    I like Fleetwood Mac.
    But if it really was the product of abortion (it isn’t) I would stop listening to them.
    I’m already tempted to, because her and her ex are to two dumbest lefty flakes you are likely to meet.
    All the intelligence went into the musical ability, none left for anything else in those brains, I think.

  31. Arky

    War and abortion.
    The same result.
    Millions of human beings who never got to be.
    German demographics, 1939:
    Look at all the missing people, the ones killed in WW1 and the children they never got to have. Those big chucks out of the pyramid are people who were either snuffed out or who never got to be.

  32. Robbo

    While she was making that statement did she have a joint or a syringe in her hand? She can sing but she can’t think straight. Another entertainer who thinks she has something important and relevant to add to an important topic.
    Memo to Stevie. Shut up you dumb broad.

  33. Rabbi Putin

    There would still have been Fleetwood Mac, there’s a reason it isn’t called Fleetwood Nicks. They even managed to find a second female vocalist. I’m sure they would’ve been fine. Probably better-sounding even.

  34. Huh!
    After NINE albums (and here, this is just the studio albums) the band looked like folding. Mick was in the U.S. and he was played some tracks by Keith Olsen the producer, from an album due for release. The artist was actually in the studio at the time, and the two were introduced. Mick asked that artist, Lindsey Buckingham if he would like to join the ban, and Lindsey said yes, but only if he could bring his girlfriend and fellow recording artist Stephanie along with him.
    There’s a lot of things that led up to the second/third/fourth/fifth iteration of Fleetwood Mac, and Stevie’s abortion would not have been the slightest of blips in that process.
    Seven years before Stevie, Mac brought out far and away the best Instrumental ever released, the wonderful Albatross, the only Instrumental to top the charts twice five years apart (68 and 73) with Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer and an 18 year old Danny Kirwan, three guitarists mind you.
    There was a ‘phasing’ problem with the song and that’s just one of the reasons for the unique guitar sounds on that song. Peter Green’s Les Paul had the magnetic pickup head installed with the magnetic polarities reversed, something they didn’t find out till many years later, and why the original sound of the song could not be (perfectly) reproduced on stage with his other guitars.
    Fleetwood Mac was huge long before Stevie Nicks.
    Oh Well!
    Tony.

  35. Arky look at the Soviet Union’s abortions.

    Mind blowing.

  36. Scott Osmond

    I don’t know who said it but the comment went something like this. You exist to entertain me. I pay attention to you because of how well you achieve this goal. I’m not interested in your stupid inane insites to politics or world events. So shut up and dance monkey! Increasingly people like me don’t give money to people who hate them. A number of sports codes and movie houses are getting a lesson on just who pays for their lifestyles.

  37. Roger

    Post hoc ergo procter hoc?

    I don’t think so.

    Not to mention that the lady seems to have her chronology mixed up in any case (Fleetwood Mac’s greatest commercial success came three years before her abortion).

    The drugs, I suppose.

  38. H B Bear

    Scott – you (we?) are just pissing into the wind. There is a very funny scene in The Simpson’s (an old one obviously) when Moe steals the recipe to the Flaming Homer cocktail and Homer sticks his head into a now huge party at Moe’s tavern to yell, “You’ve just lost yourself a customer” but cannot make himself heard over the noise.

  39. dover_beach

    If Yoko Omo was aborted ,then The Beatles wouldn’t have broken up.

    Not quite. Let’s imagine that Paul and George thought that Yoko was going to split the band prematurely in the late 60s and killed her as a result and we only found out 30 years later. Does anyone really believe that Paul saying, If Yoko lived, no more Beatles would be taken at all seriously? Of course not. You have to already believe the child in utero is not worthy, morally, and legally, of protection.

    Thanks Tony. Good info.

  41. Albatross

    Who was the lady who used to post here a lot about aborti on grief? She was an academic and ran a support group of some kind for women who had abortions they regret.

  42. Roger

    There was a ‘phasing’ problem with the song and that’s just one of the reasons for the unique guitar sounds on that song. Peter Green’s Les Paul had the magnetic pickup head installed with the magnetic polarities reversed, something they didn’t find out till many years later, and why the original sound of the song could not be (perfectly) reproduced on stage with his other guitars.

    To this day some Les Paul owners reverse a pickup magnet looking for that sound – the Peter Green tone – which seems to have come from the magnet being reversed in error at the factory. That and Peter Green’s fingers and amp.

  43. Phillipa Martyr

    She had a lot of sass, good banter and embodied Catholicallyfiles dot com.

  44. Fess

    Fleetwood Mac were founded, and were very successful, for at least 7 years before Stevie Nicks joined. Think “Albatross” – probably the best tune they ever recorded. They were a much more interesting band before her bland contribution. Typical singer’s narcissism to assume they were nothing without her. Her singing was as shallow and toneless as her political views. Bah humbug!

  45. Nob

    Carole King had four kids , four husbands, and a fantastic career, still performs and kids have turned out well too.

    You only live one life. You don’t know about the lives you never lived and whatever you say about them is pure supposition, not evidence.

  46. duncanm

    We wouldn’t have the whiny Fleetwood Mac, that’s a good thing.

  47. Nob

    I thought Philippa still posted here under a pseudonymous handle?

  48. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    Sara – is an ode to a clump o’ cells – as well as being one of the most beautiful songs in human history …

    Gypsy

    Stevie made her choices and she lives with them. But she did gift us those anthems above. 😐

  49. one old bruce

    ‘Carole King had four kids , four husbands, and a fantastic career, still performs and kids have turned out well too.’ – Glad to hear about her kids, Carole King is wonderful as both writer and singer. Four husbands? Well we all make mistakes.

  50. one old bruce

    I enjoy Stevie Nicks’ songs but reflecting back I think they are always about herself. Says a lot.

  51. Fang

    Common guys!
    Stevie Nicks has a plastic nose because of all the coke she snorted! So we know there’s no brain cells left! (Why do these old lost entertainers think their opinions matter????🙄)
