Cyndi Lauper: It’s OK to Kill Babies in Abortions Because “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”

Singer Cyndi Lauper is proud that some activists have latched onto her famous pop song “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” to advocate for abortions.

Speaking with People, Lauper, 69, said she began noticing signs that read “Girls just want to have fun-damental rights” at Women’s Marches and other protests across the country starting in 2017.

The 1983 hit song “wasn’t political, but in a lot of ways it was, because how dare I say that women should come together and be joyful?” she said. “When I used to go on tour, I actually saw grandmothers, mothers and daughters — three generations. It just made it worthwhile to me.”

Now, ET Canada reports Lauper has begun her own pro-abortion organization, the Girls Just Want to Have Fundamental Rights Fund, in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade in June.

“If you don’t have control over your own body, how can you be anything but a second-class citizen?” Lauper said. “Now, the government has control over your body, not you. What should be a private medical decision between you and your doctor is now a government decision. So, this is a big issue for me.”

The mission of the organization is to raise money for “women’s rights and health” and support groups that have a “positive impact on the lives of all women and girls.”

However, Lauper’s position on abortion supports destroying the lives of girls before they are born. Supporting abortion on demand also treats babies in the womb as second-class citizens – even though they are unique, living human beings with bodies.

Some states now protect unborn babies’ right to life again, thanks to the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling, and SBA Pro-Life America estimates their laws are saving 125,000 unborn babies’ lives.

Lauper, however, focused solely on women’s lives. To promote her new organization, she just released an acoustic version of her 1993 song “Sally’s Pigeons,” the story of a teenager who dies from a back alley abortion, according to ET Canada.

“[‘Sally’s Pigeons’] was about newspaper headlines — ‘Found Another Dead Young Woman.’ [There were] lots of dead young women from illegal abortions that were not safe because you couldn’t have a safe procedure,” Lauper told the news outlet. “Young people don’t know what it was like. I saw it every day. I knew how it affected a lot of young women.”

Actually, very few women died from illegal abortions in the years leading up to Roe and women continued to die of legal abortions after the 1973 ruling – something fact checkers at several major news outlets have confirmed. Even a Planned Parenthood medical director admitted in 1960 that abortions were “no longer dangerous” for women because of advances in modern medical care.

Dr. Mary Calderone, the medical director of Planned Parenthood, wrote in the American Journal of Public Health:

“… about 90 percent of all illegal abortions are presently being done by physicians…Whatever trouble arises usually arises from self-induced abortions, which comprise approximately 8 percent, or with the very small percentage that go to some kind of non-medical abortionist…So remember…abortion, whether therapeutic or illegal, is in the main no longer dangerous, because it is being done well by physicians.”

Abortion funds like Lauper’s do not help women. They help the billion-dollar abortion industry. Pregnant and parenting families deserve better support, but people like Lauper who describe themselves as women’s health advocates are not putting their money or efforts behind real health care for women and children. They are supporting abortion, which helps no one.
