Pro-Life Isn't: Rock for Life

I was reading a piece on Feministe the other day about anti-choice groups, and the American Life League's Rock for Life project was mentioned.

Rock for Life is committed to offering the truth about abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia to America's youth through music and ministry.

Young people are being deceived and manipulated by the music industry! Many of today's popular artists speak out for abortion rights and raise money for pro-abortion causes. They are feeding our youth with the lie that abortion is not only an answer to their problems, but a right they must fight to protect.

To counter this assault on young people, Rock For Life works to bring together bands who stand for the truth - that life is sacred from fertilization until natural death - with no exceptions, no compromise, and no apologies. Rock for Life is dedicated to this fight until abortion is abolished and a respect for the gift of life is restored.

It's hard to argue with this, since I can't tell you how many times a great song from a great band has inspired me and made me want to go out and get pregnant so that I can have one of those cool abortions that the rock stars like so much. We've all been there.

So I decided to check out the list of "pro-life bands" on the Rock for Life site, to see what a list of life-affirming artists dedicated to the idea that the "gift of life" is "sacred" would look like. Here are some of my favorites.

[Before we begin, I'd like to say that obviously I've never listened to any of these bands, so yes I'm totally judging the covers on this one. I'm sure many of these artists make perfectly lovely music. Maybe.]

~America Gomorrah (Sounds like a nice vacation spot...we hear Gomorrah is for lovers)

~As Cities Burn

~As I Lay Dying (No! Get up and live life, damn it!)

~Armed Conflict (Nobody dies during that, right?)

~Between the Nightmares

~Bloodshed (I'm sure they mean healthy, life-affirming bloodshed only, like maybe it's an all girl group that sings about their periods or something)

~Brian Littrell (Yes, from the Backstreet Boys. Apparently he does Christian albums. We had no idea. Kinda funny to me that he would have no fame, fortune, and career to speak of if it weren't for the zillions of young women who chose to support his cheesy boy band, and apparently he feels that those same young women don't deserve the right to choose when it comes to important stuff like control over their own bodies and lives. Of course, his name was spelled wrong on the Rock for Life site, so who knows if he even really considers himself a pro-life artist. We prefer Lance Bass anyway.)

~Bring on the Destroyer

~Brutal Fight

~Cannibal Culture

~Catawba Death Squad (They probably mean Life Squad)

~Fluff Road-Kill

~If Looks Could Kill (...they certainly wouldn't. Looks would only give life if they could)

~Inked in Blood

~Kids In The Way (Well, I'm sorry, but you wanted us to have them!)

~Kills and Thrills

~Leprosy of the Soul

~The Hope of Change (This band must hate Barack Obama)

~Wake The Fallen (Wow, trying to bring the dead back to life, now that's dedication to the cause)

~With Blood Comes Cleansing

I don't know about you, but my "respect for the gift of life" is renewed just by looking at this list of inspirational artists.

If you're looking for some new music that's a little less lifey, the site also has a list of "pro-abort" bands that includes everyone from Ashley Judd (sure, she's not actually a musical artist, but she's related to some and she attended the March for Women's Lives so she's on the list!) to Yo La Tengo, plus Barenaked Ladies, Bikini Kill, Cher, Foo Fighters, Joan Jett, John Mellencamp, Lunachicks, Luscious Jackson, Pearl Jam, Pink, Red Hot Chilli Peppers,Salt 'N Pepa, The Donnas, and many more!

Stay tuned for the ESC's upcoming "pro-abort" mix CD, Now That's What I Call Choice: Volume 1, coming soon to a blog near you.

Gay abortion bands? Probably a limited audience on that one. Only one person I can think of, and I'm pretty sure they're going through with the pregnancy...
