27 Years “I believe in personal choice…In my opinion it should always be up to the individual to decide. My mother got pregnant when she was young, drugged out, stupid and completly unfit to be a mother…she aborted that child and It was the best thing do for everybody involved. So thanks for being our friend for a brief time…good luck with trying to stop people from aborting babies. Lantz” myspace message Nov. 15, 2007

66 Responses to bands who advocate abortion

  1. Thomas says:

    Not to be nit-picky, but some of the artists on these lists have nothing beside there name to say how they ended up on witch list. I would like the know how people like Justin Timberlake, Iggy Pop, and Alice in Chains ended up on this list.

    • I’ll dig through my files and post that info soon. Check back later. Thanks!

  2. Dan says:

    Oh thank God, I was worried I’d see AC/DC on here. That would’ve killed me.

    Still pretty pissed about giving money to a lot of these bands through album purchases without ever knowing I was contributing to supporters of mass murder. So I figure from now on, I won’t pay even a penny for any song they’ve ever done. I’ll still listen; many of them are talented regardless of their views. But I won’t listen on the radio and I won’t pay for anything they put out. What I’ve got now and what I can find on YouTube will do just fine.

  3. steven tate says:

    isnt sarah mc whatser name the dont abuse animals spoke person

  4. Misty says:

    This is ace! I’ve needed some pro-choice bands to listen to.
    Thank you so much, it’s great to see some of my favourite artists support such a good cause 🙂

    • Hi Misty, They aren’t technically “pro-choice” since they don’t believe in choice for pregnant moms let alone the choice the child has in staying alive.

      • Taylor says:

        Don’t believe in choice for pregnant moms? Were you dropped on your head as a child, or is your overwhelming stupidity the result of a genetic mishap?
        Pro-choice means “I respect the right of everyone to choose what is right for them”.
        You’re pregnant and happy? Great, good for you and you should have resources provided to make the pregnancy go smoothly.
        You’re pregnant and don’t want to be? That’s your choice, and the same respect and resources should be provided in support of that decision.

        Also, c’mon anti-choicers. Pro-choice has Santana. Just give up now.

      • Actually Taylor we USE OUR HEADS. Human life begins at the moment the human sperm penetrates the human ovum. that is a scientific fact. You will not find one human embryologist to disagree. We also use our HEARTS. Killing is wrong, and that includes defenseless preborn human persons.

        The term pro-choice begs the question. What is the choice? Killing children in-utero. Then no, we aren’t. And neither should you or anyone else. We will not respect anyone’s desire to kill preborn children.

    • Jeremiah Bw says:

      That’s okay, people can respond by not doing business with you.

  5. Jovan says:

    Thank you for compiling this list. I will try to get at least one album from all of those artists, since they support true freedom and YOU misogynists in the Rock for Life HATE freedom.

    • How can they support freedom when abortion denies the human baby the basic freedom of life? And how is it freedom when abortionists do not share scientific information on human development to pregnant moms? And how is it freedom when abortion advocates deny prolifers from sharing info on Options to pregnant moms walking into abortion facilities seeking to abort their child? You seem to have a skeewed sense of freedom.

    • How does freedom of abortion mean freedom to you? Are the babies free to choose to live? Didn’t think so! Make sure you buy all of Hitler’s books, too. He advocated some great choices! Like, let’s kill everyone with brown hair… It’s ok to choose who to keep alive around you, right? You have the freedom, right? So when your mother becomes a burden, it’s your choice… rip her apart and such her up into a vacuum.

      • Helena says:

        A fetus/embryo/zygote does not a equal a baby. Take a biology course.

      • depends on what kind of fetus/embryo/zygote are you talking about? A monkey fetus? Of course it doesn’t! A human fetus? Well of course, its a human!

  6. blah. says:

    Shouldn’t most of these be obvious? i mean…have you heard any of their lyrics. oh, anti-choicers, you slay me.

    • me says:

      Why do you call me anti-choice – I believe in choice – you on the other hand can be called anti-life!

  7. Melissa says:


  8. Laura says:

    Thanks for the information. It’s easy to forget how musicians can finance abortions too. I like to vote with my money. I had two unplanned pregnancies, both of which are now both asleep upstairs in their pjs. I think if you’re old enough to have sex, you should be responsible enough to love what love created.

  9. tania says:

    thanks for compiling this list — i’ll be sure to support these bands at every opportunity, as they’ve shown themselves to be in favor of reproductive rights of women, and not hateful misogynists. moreover, i’ll be delighted that it’s less likely that bigots like you will be at their shows.
    btw, no one is “pro abortion”; the use of loaded phrases like that reveal your hatred and negativity. unsurprising.

    • how can someone who supports abortion be for reproductive rights for women? More than half of all abortions abort a female human being. So much for women’s rights, huh?

      If saving children and moms from abortion is considered bigoted, then go ahead. But I would say the true bigot is one who advocates for the death of another, which is what abortion is.

      finally, the term pro-abortion is used because, well that is what you are for and advocating. It is interesting to note how the abortion advocates hate saying the word abortion. What is so bad about it? If it’s so great of a procedure then why not tattoo on your body? Wear the term proudly. Is it because you know abortion is bad and wrong but don’t have the courage to stand up for what is right?

      Eagerly awaiting your reply

      • Helena says:

        Why, exactly, would you need to save a mom from abortion? People don’t need to be saved from their own choices. Also, unless you have a womb, you have zero right to comment on what womb-owners should be able to do with their own bodies.

      • Because abortion causes a life long grief. If you think men shouldn’t have a say in abortion, then it needs to go both ways. 1) Roe V Wae was decided by MEN, 2) Obama is a man who is forcing others to pay for abortions. What about rape? Since I’m not a woman should I have a say about men raping women? of course I should. I oppose all injustices including rape and abortion.

      • Loke Fitz Andreu says:

        i find Helena’s comment interesting, “people dont need to be saved from their own choices” wow how blind can you be? even if we’re not talking about abortion people still do need to be saved from bad choices, why do you think we have paramedics and firefighters? because a lot of tragedies that happen are a result of bad CHOICES abortion is not different, yes people do need to be saved from their own choices, especially the “choice” of abortion

    • me says:

      really? And pro-choice people using the term anti-choice instead of pro-life isn’t negative and hateful?? Seriously – I am neither a hateful misogynist nor a misguided, misinformed individual – I simply believe every life is precious – a woman has an absolute right over her own body – but the child within is NOT her body – just being housed there temporarily. I cannot walk into a doctors office and insist he remove my appendix, I can’t even get a dentist to remove an imperfect tooth – why should I have the right to end the life of another human being simply because it is a burden to me even though I created it? The rationale is definitely skewed.

  10. M'leigh Espinoza says:

    Hey, don’t forget The Decemberists! They’re full supporters of women’s rights and the pro-choice movement. Just check out their official facebook page!

    And thanks for this list, I really needed some new music to listen to, and all of these guys rock!!

    • M’leigh, THanks for the head’s up. I’m adding them right now. Any other bands I should add?

  11. Prolife Guitarist says:

    I love how the pro-aborts have a crush on us (obviously, here they are, creeping on our sites) KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ROCK FOR LIFE!!!!

    • haha thanks!

  12. Politics_Girl says:

    I am a former subscriber. I am now proudly pro-choice.

    • that’s too bad, what happened?

    • Jen says:

      You have posted at least two comments but you still haven’t answered the question about your reason for becoming pro-choice. Aren’t you going to? If you don’t support rockforlife anymore, quit getting on this website.

  13. Shmeegan says:

    For everyone who is Pro-choice, arn’t you happy your mom was Pro-life.

    • Politics_Girl says:

      My mother IS pro-choice. She CHOSE life. Because it was her choice.

      • Shmeegan says:

        I saw your earlier post, politics girl.I am curious what would make you go from a supporter of life to a supporter of Pro-choice? Jw.

    • Helena says:

      You can be pro-choice and still have a baby. Pro-choice does not mean “nobody should ever give birth”, it means “you have control over your own body”.

      • no one argues abortion advocates can’t have babies. obviously many of them do. Controlling your own body is fine but once you start controlling others thats a problem. Abortion ends the life of an innocent, defenseless human person.

      • Helena says:

        To be innocent, you have to have the capacity to make choices. For example, most people wouldn’t call a flower or a tree or an ant innocent (or evil) for that matter, because they’re not choosing their actions based on morality. They’re not innocent or evil, they just ARE, because they don’t have that capacity. Same with a zygote/fetus/embryo.

      • me says:

        the child within is NOT YOUR BODY

  14. Patrick says:

    I use to be a regular visitor to this site back in 90’s glad to see it is still going strong. I challenge anybody to look at the ultrasound of your children say you are still pro-choice considering the angry comments I have just read it shows the moral courage Whitney Houston showed thirty years ago. I pray that she is at peace

    • Glad to see you back!

    • Kim says:

      I’ve looked at ultrasounds of 4 children and I’m still pro choice. My teenagers are too.

      • Loke says:

        that’s so sad for you, that your conscience has wasted so thin I’ll be sure to say a prayer for you

  15. Trey says:

    okay all you anti-choice fascist motherfuckers need to chill out. okay. pro choice means to choose. we respect a womyns right to choose and privacy. okay. abortion isn’t the only choice a women can choose. so many options. if you don’t agree with abortion, don’t fucking have one, you have no right to govern someone else’s body!

    • Trey, okay all anti-slavery jerks need to chill out. pro-choice means to choose. We respect a slave owner’s right to choose and privacy. okay. slavery isn’t the only choice a plantation owner can choose. so many options. if you don’t agree with slavery, then don’t have one. you have no right to govern someone else’s business!

    • Prolife Guitarhero says:

      hey Trey, it’s time to grow up and stop verbally abusing and bullying people who dare to disagree with you, guess what? we’re not the only ones who disagree with you, (and not on just this issue either, there are always people who disagree with you, and calling people who disagree with you the names that you’re calling us, you know what that tells me? That you’re immature, need to grow up and that I feel very sorry for you, anyway I’ll be praying that if nothing else, God at least helps you to treat others with respect, because that is a sign of maturity and one last thing, Erik is totally right choice is just that, choice, I recently saw a photo which asked me (and my fellow prolifers) if we’re prolife on every issue, well here’s a similar question to you and yours, are you “prochoice” on every issue, (for example slavery)? (just something to think about)

      • Helena says:

        Using God in an argument is a surefire way to get yourself laughed at. Not everyone has the same religion at you!

      • Prolife Guitarhero says:

        Helena, laughed at? You honestly think that’s what i care about? well it’s true that everyone doesn’t share my beliefs, but it’s also true that not everyone cares about being laughed at, no offense, but your comment seriously makes me think you’re only 13, and I would also point out that i was not using God in my argument, I was stating that I would be praying for this sad person, maybe you should actually read what I wrote before you comment

  16. jones42 says:

    You spelled Sleater-Kinney wrong. Great list of bands, can’t wait to listen. Sad that most people on here are going to miss out on some awesome music.

    • hey nice catch, thanks. Sure they may make great music but should we be listening to artists who are advocating ending the life of young, defenseless, innocent children?

  17. The people who support abortion (baby killing) seem to think that calling us pro-life people names is going to make us change our minds and become supporters of the same thing Hitler supported, wrong answer, we will not be intimidated or beat down by those who support murdering babies

    • Prolife Guitarist says:

      true dat friend 😀

  18. Prolife Guitarist says:

    It’s so disturbing that an unborn human baby can be murdered legally and yet if you were to crush a bunch of sea turtle eggs, in so doing killing unborn sea turtles, then you would most likely end up in federal prison, hey why shouldn’t I be able to kill unborn sea turtles? it’s my choice isnt it?

  19. Kim says:

    Thanks for the heads up on what bands to support. They’ll be sure to get money from me now.

    • Loke says:

      fascinating that you feel the need to get on this site and say anything at all, why not just ignore what we’re doing here? the answer is you know that we will succeed in ending this atrocity and for some odd reason that scares you

  20. Laura says:

    Most of this bands I’ve never heard of but thank you for informing me about the few that I recognize. I’ve never bought anything from them, thankfully, but now I know to never do.

    • Nicole says:

      I am a little frustrated about Good charlotte. I have been a fan of them since 99/00.

      • KMJ says:

        Nicole, the same here. I’ve been their fan in senior high, their music helped me much, so I will always be sentimental about GC. Madden brothers always have been left-wing/liberal, ’cause they were growng up in a blue-collar, punk-anarchist background. They are pro contraception(I may be wrong about it, but let’s be honest – Madden brothers have no problems with premarital sex, they sing about it, Benji has also been joking about himself going to hell because of premarital sex and using condoms), pro animal rights (support for PETA), they also support UNICEF, and UNICEF supports abortion. But, what is interesting, they are kinda pro-family: they’ve written songs for their mother, who cared about them after their father left them, Joel Madden have written a song for his little daughter (he and Nicole Richie, his actual wife, chose life for their daughter and son, even though they both had their careers and they weren’t married, I don’t know if they’ve ever thought about aborting their own children or if they haven’t aborted their children from earlier relationships), one of the band members posted the USG pictures of his daughter on their official website (but this daughter was wanted and he had her with his wife, it doesn’t change the fact that he can be prochoice), they also have a song against suicide and some song about their faith in God (Madden’s mother was a Christian, so she wanted to sha her faith with sons, they say they believe in God, they have “religious tattooes”, but I heard that both Maddens do not go to Church, they probably are not connected to any religious organisation or ministry). So, boys from GC are not bad guys, but someone or something has misled them. I don’t listen to their music anymore, I’ve grown up, but I still have their albums and a ticket from a show in Berlin, Germany.

  21. Nicole says:

    what gets me is some of these bands are on the pro choice list when they’ve been avid supporters of PETA. and other animal rights organizations…. are people not animals as well?

  22. Sam Cav says:

    May want to add Tegan and Sara. I believe they are affiliated with Rock for Choice, and at least one of them has been quoted advocating for abortion (and being insanely anti-American).

    • added thank you!

  23. ZZZ says:

    So many artists I will never support again. My money will go elsewhere.

  24. BarbedWire says:

    I’m here so that I know who to listen to. Thanks, woman haters

    • Thanks for visiting. Actually, more women support banning abortion then keeping them all legal

  25. Chels says:

    Thanks so much for this list! I never thought to check whether an artist supported abortion or not, now I’m kicking myself for buying some of this! Arrrrg! Well at last I can sell the music I’ve already got and give the money to Pro Life organizations.

    • Chels, Thanks for visiting the site and you can donate by clicking on the donate button at the top of, call in with a credit card, 540-322-3761 or sending a check or money order to us at: Rock for Life, PO Box 333, Locust Grove, VA 22508 THANKS!
