One of the things I like to do as the moderator for STFU, Pro-Life is share pro-choice music.  People ask me why I do this, how is it relevant, etc.  I just think it’s cool to know if our favorite bands or singer supports a cause that we believe in.  A lot of these artists actually put their money into supporting sexual and reproductive health and rights.  Giving them a shout out just seems like the thing to do.

As stated on the STFU, Pro-Life blog:

This is based on their support for Planned Parenthood (either by playing for feminist events and/or knowingly signing onto labels that donate to PP) and continuous work for feminism and overall pro-choice awesomeness. You might be surprised by some of these artists. And if there’s a musician(s) you know that’s pro-choice and it’s not on this list, let me know! Progress never sounded so good.

    This is cool! As cultural influencers, they do have sway in how their fans view the issue, right? So it’s incredibly relevant to share their views as it relates to causes you believe in. Though it could be argued that celebrities should not have much influence in areas outside their area of expertise, the reality is that they do have that power. I think it’s cool that you point out people others may admire support these causes.

    Marilyn Manson and Jimi Hendrix is false. Please remove them you abortion Nazi.

    • MarkIra613

      When critical thinking fails, play the “Nazi” card!

      Well, let me put my response in a way you might understand.

      If it isn’t your body, it isn’t your business. And don’t even TRY to hand me that the crap that says a clump of cells in a woman’s body is a baby!

      But if you can PROVE that what is (those cells in a woman’s uterus) is the samewas hat might be (a baby) get back to me. Until then, that canard isn’t worth the electrons it take to make it show up on a coputer screen,

      Nevertheless, the entire debate can be summed up in a two-word question, with an equally simple answer.

      The question? Who decides?

      The federal government?

      State government?

      Some religious leader like the Pope?

      You?

      Me?

      I’ll let America’s last AUTHENTIC conservative provide the answer:

      “Today’s so-called ‘conservatives’ don’t even know what the word means. They think I’ve turned liberal because I believe a woman has a right to an abortion. That’s a decision that’s up to the pregnant woman, not up to the pope or some do-gooders or the Religious Right. It’s not a conservative issue at all.” – Barry Goldwater
