Fleetwood Mac Singer Stevie Nicks: I Killed My Baby in an Abortion to Save My Career

Millions upon millions of mothers have proven that women do not need to abort their unborn babies to be successful.

But the billion-dollar abortion industry keeps selling the lie that women need abortions if they want to pursue their dreams. Tragically, celebrities like actress Michelle Williams and now Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks are among the women who have been convinced that they were not strong enough or capable enough to be mothers and have careers.

In a new interview with The Irish Times, the now 72-year-old singer said Fleetwood Mac probably would have ended if she had chosen to parent her child with Eagles singer Don Henly. Instead, in 1979, during the height of her career, she chose an abortion.

“If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,” Nicks told the news outlet. “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.”

She tried to defend her decision to end her baby’s life by claiming it allowed her to continue producing music to make people happy.

“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,” Nicks 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.”

Later, Nicks wrote the song “Sara” in dedication “to the spirit of the aborted baby” who she conceived with Henley.

While she said she has no regrets about her abortion, some of her other comments suggest that may not be true. Nicks said her only regret is her eight-year addiction to the tranquilizer Klonopin – something she acknowledged may not have happened if she had had her child. She also wondered if she would have had another child if she had not struggled with the addiction.

“I always look back and think: what could I have done during that time? Made a Fleetwood Mac album or a solo record. I could have gotten married or had a baby or adopted one. Let me tell you, if anybody ever tries to put you on Klonopin, run screaming out of the room,” she said.

She also spoke lovingly of her mother, Barbara, who raised and encouraged her while pursuing a career.

According to the report:

Nicks was close to her mother, Barbara, who pushed to get her career back after she had children. “She said to me: you will never stand in a room full of men and feel like you can’t keep up with them. And you will never depend upon a man to support you. She drummed that into me, and I’m so glad she did.”

Her mother’s words encouraged and empowered her, but her abortion did not. Abortions dehumanize women and their unborn babies, treating both as less valuable simply because of who they are. Abortion treats babies in the womb as disposable, even though they already are unique, living human beings from the moment of conception. And it treats women as weak, incapable of success unless they legally can kill their own unborn children. It treats a woman’s ability to nurture a child in the womb as a disease rather than a gift.

That is the opposite of empowering. Unborn babies deserve a right to life, and women deserve to be honored and encouraged when, planned or unplanned, they carry a child in their womb.
