1. Stevie Nicks

In an interview with The Guardian, singer Stevie Nicks opened up about having an abortion in 1979, when Fleetwood Mac was in its prime.

“Had I not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,” Nicks said. “There’s no way I could have had a baby at the time, as I worked so hard as we were constantly working.”

“I knew that the music we were going to give the world would heal a lot of people’s hearts and make people very happy. And I thought: You know? This is really important. No other group in the world has two lead singers, two leading women writers. This was my global mission.”

2. Philips is busy

Shortly after Georgia passed an anti-abortion bill banning the procedure for six weeks, before a federal judge banned the law in July 2020, Pussy Phillips shared her own experience of having an abortion.
