Singer Stevie Nicks Claims Her Abortion Paved Way for Her Career
By Cooper Dowd, Staff Writer
Stevie Nicks, the famous vocalist for Fleetwood Mac and two-time Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame inductee, is among a growing list of celebrities who said their success in the limelight was made possible through abortion.
The growing popularity of saving a career at the expense of a child goes directly against what God says in His word about children.
Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him.”
And in John 16:21, it says, “When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world.”
However, when we as Christians do not advocate for life and share the good news of the Gospel with everyone we know, Satan’s evil plots manifest among nonbelievers.
Nicks sat down for an interview with The Guardian to discuss how the termination of her pregnancy at the height of Fleetwood Mac’s success saved her career.
“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,” Nicks said, referencing President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
The 72-year old artist continued to talk about the abortion she had in 1979, two years after Fleetwood Mac’s second album, while in a relationship with The Eagles’ Don Henley.
“If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,” Nicks said. “There’s just no way that I could have had a child then, working as hard as we worked constantly. And there were a lot of drugs, I was doing a lot of drugs… I would have had to walk away.”
To think this little baby could have saved Nicks’ life in more ways than one.
Nicks conceded: “Had I married Don and had that baby, and had she been a girl, I would have named her Sara.”
Nicks is not the only celebrity to credit their success to terminating their pregnancies.
In January, during the Golden Globes Awards, actress Michelle Williams echoed Nicks’ sentiment that her career would not have been possible if she could not “employ a woman’s right to choose.”
Actress Martha Plimpton called her most recent abortion as her “best one,” in 2017.
In 2018, comedian Michelle Wolf said that abortion “should be on the Dollar Menu at McDonald’s” and “God bless abortions!” During a Netflix comedy special in 2019, Wolf recalled that her abortion made her feel “powerful,” like God.
These horrifying comments prove that celebrities are not sharing the truth about abortions — the emotional turmoil, physical pain, and life-long regret that comes with ending the life of a child.
There are, however, several celebrities who have spoken out against abortion.
Grammy award-winning artist Alicia Keys says her mother almost aborted her but did not.
“I am so grateful to her for choosing me. And I really appreciate her,” Keys said earlier this year.
Tim Tebow’s mother was also presented with the option to abort the star athlete.
Actress Patricia Heaton condemned society’s attitude to abortion.
“It just bothers me so much. It’s almost a natural, it’s almost a reflex now,” Heaton told TheBlaze in a 2014 interview. “Once you have kids and you know what it feels like to be pregnant and you know what it feels like to have that person growing inside of you, and the beauty of it, it’s just not a holistic thing to do.”
Furthermore, other celebrities have touted what an honor it is to bring a child into this world.
“That’s where is starts. It doesn’t start when the baby is out. The relationship you have with the mother, the relationship you have talking to that child en utero,” former NFL star Ben Watson said. Watson recently starred in the documentary DIVIDED HEARTS OF AMERICA, which addresses abortion with tact, precision and empathy.
“Fatherhood begins in the womb. There are millions of preborn children and courageous, precious mothers that are depending on us men to be men. So let’s do it,” Watson said.
Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey also celebrated fatherhood in recent interviews, saying, “The only thing I ever knew I wanted to be was a father. And it’s remained the pinnacle for me. Being a dad was always my only dream. … I can’t think of anything being more important.”
The bottom line is that despite what some celebrities may tell you, no amount of success is worth the sacrifice of another life.
