In the recent interview, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nick revealed that the band would have not come together and rocked the world if she didn’t have an abortion back then.
Fleetwood Mac songs have been an iconic band since it came into being in 1967. Most of us have grown up listening to Fleetwood Mac which is why every news related to the band feels personal.
Recently, in an interview with The Guardian, Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac claimed that the band would have never survived if she didn't go through an abortion.
She said that at the Guardian interview about hard-won abortion rights achieved by feminists in the sixties, seventies, and eighties.
The famous singer cum song writer said that her career as an artist would have ended if she decided to have a child. Hence, going through with an abortion at the time was one of her best decisions.
“If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac. 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 further added,
“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. 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.”
According to Nick, she had to go through a lot. Her generation fought for women rights to get them what they deserve. However, all this will be in vain if president Trump is elected again.
“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.”
If you are unaware, thanks to a viral TikTok trend originally coined by a TikTok user and Idaho resident named Nathan Apodaca, Fleetwood Mac's music has been granted a new lease on life this year. The trend went viral after Apocada uploaded a video of himself skateboarding while drinking Ocean Spray brand cranberry juice after his car broke down. The Fleetwood Mac song 'Dreams' could be heard in the background of the video.
