Stevie Nicks, Fleetwood Mac and the Abortion that Made All of the “Magic” Possible! By Mrs Vera West

         Reporting on the sayings of a rock star may not seem important, yet these people through their music, influence millions, even if unconsciously. The band Fleetwood Mac does not seem much of a harmful band compared to the rest out there. Still, their music, such as their classic album Rumours (1977), basically dealt with the broken relationships and affairs in the band, making music out of the emotional mess. And, then there is the Stevie Nicks abortion issue:

“After telling Variety that she’s contemplating leaving the United States if President Donald Trump wins re-election, rocker Stevie Nicks says there wouldn’t have been a Fleetwood Mac if she had not had an abortion.

“If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,” said Nick in a recent interview with The Guardian. The singer ended her unborn child’s life in 1979 while she was dating Don Henley of The Eagles. “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.”

Besides, Nicks felt that “the music we were going to bring to the world” was much more important than the life of her own flesh and blood.

“And I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal so many people’s hearts and make people so happy,” she said. “And I thought: you know what? That’s really important. There’s not another band in the world that has two lead women singers, two lead women writers. That was my world’s mission.”

The rocker jumped into the presidential election last week, telling Variety in an interview to promote her new single “Show Them the Way” that she’s “thinking: Oh, space” if Trump wins. “Maybe I can talk Elon Musk into giving us a jet and letting me pick 50 people.”
Nicks is not the only celebrity elite to suggest that she wouldn’t have been able to figure out how to be successful in her career if she had started a family.

Earlier this year at the 77th Golden Globes, actress Michelle Williams suggested that abortion was the reason she was able to win a golden globe.”


        I am surprised that Nicks never did a song celebrating abortion, if that was the magic ingredient to her commercial success. Really this shows the hollowness of one argument for abortion, since Nicks could easily have had the child, and paid some coloured woman to look after it, maybe even wet nurse it. Nicks would have certainly have had the money to do this. Clearly it is all about convenience.
