October 17, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – A double Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee has claimed the world would have been deprived of the happiness and healing of her singing career if she hadn’t had an abortion four decades ago.Legendary singer Stevie Nicks said in a recent interview with The Guardian that if she hadn’t aborted the child she conceived with Eagles frontman Don Henley in 1979, she’s “pretty sure there wouldn’t have been a Fleetwood Mac.”

“There was just no way I could have had a child back then, working as hard as we were constantly working,” Nicks said.

“And there were a lot of drugs, I was taking a lot of drugs… I should have left,” said the 72-year-old singer. “And I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal the hearts of so many people and make people so happy.”

“And I thought: you know what? It’s really important, ”she said. “There isn’t another group in the world that has two lead singers, two lead female writers. It was my world’s mission.

“The right to abortion was really the fight of my generation,” said Nicks, who said recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg was her hero. “If President Trump wins this election and puts in the judge he wants, she will absolutely ban it and push back women into routed abortions.”

Many were appalled by Nicks’ revelation and disagreed with her assessment that her career was more important than loving and caring for the child she had aborted.

“Justify the murder. What!? Talk show host Jesse Lee Peterson tweeted.

Nicks, who is said to have undergone a total of four abortions, is not without regret.

“To give up four [babies] it’s giving up a lot of things that would be here now, ”Nicks admitted in a 1992 Vox Magazine interview.

“It really bothers me a lot and really breaks my heart. But they’re gone, so… ”she continued. “But I couldn’t because I was too busy. And I had all these commitments.

“Some women have no interest in becoming mothers, but Stevie Nicks doesn’t,” said Kyle Smith of National Review.

“She really wanted to be a mother, badly,” Smith wrote. “Witness the gently horrifying soft-rock classic ‘Sara’, the only rock song I can think of in which the singer thinks he actually killed another human being. Neither Bob Marley nor Eric Clapton really shot the sheriff, but Nicks killed Sara, and that’s what gives the song a frenzy of regret.
