Sex pistols bringing attention to said issues? Really? Because jonny rotten and Sid vicious were so politically minded. Whatever, sex pistols only got famous cuz they flipped emi a double fingered salute. You want political commentary listen to dead Kennedy's.

I have never seen so many comments and the only one that I have is abortion is murder. But that is between you and your creator or what ever you do or don't believe in all of you should grow up and realize that freedom doesn't have a side anarchy would be true freedom. And I'm sure when I say this I probably speak for anybody who really understood the sex pistols they were about bringing attention to said issues in political government parties of any kind bring issues to light by speaking out lo

The song refers to an actual incident in the early/mid 70's in the U.K. that caused a stir in the abortion debate there. I remember as a 10yr. old kid hearing Walter Cronkite reporting on the nightly news on the subject, and later, a shocking music movement there called Punk Rock. Later reports chronicled the Pistols rise and their near-denial of entry into the U.S. before that tour.

F**k the comment box

Lol. The Sex Pistols didnt even write this song as an anti abortion message. Im pretty sure John Lydon is actually pro choice but with his views aside, I think song was just meant to shock people, and to get people talking about it. See everyones on here debating over what their views on abortion are - that alone is probably why they wrote the song.
Report as inappropriate
John Lydon said in an interview that this song is neither for nor against abortion. I think they just wrote a song with controversia l issues for the shock value. The sex pistols actually have no public stance on abortion despite the lyrics to this song.

This is a vicious song. In my opinion, probably the Pistols' best.

Was only saying it struck me funny for the Sex Pistols to have a song condemning abortion. Not impossible nor even entirely contradictor y to their principles, but rather stood out as slightly odd. I do hold, however, that "anarchy" as a political thought (having nothing to do with the Pistols) is traditionall y considered on the far left of the political spectrum.

@mwyneken: it is also possible to be morally against having an abortion for one's self while not restricting someone else's right to do what they want, even having an abortion.

mwyneken,

It's possible to be against abortion as an activity, but not be for coercion to restrict that activity. We don't all have to be simple minded ideologues incapable of appreciating the subtle shades of gray in a stark image of human tragedy.

MY A** IT DOES. put the f'ing pipe down and turn around and don't come back 'til you figure out the world doesn't revolve around Dr Spock and everyone that thinks like him. The Sex Pistols are the embodiment of F**k You and everything You believe in. To mix the Pistols in with left wing anything or right wing anything is an anethema to everything the Pistols were giving you the finger for.

"Usually considered to be an extreme left-wing ideology, anarchism has always included a significant strain of radical individualis m . " - Frank Brooks, author of The Individual Anarchists: An Anthology of Liberty...he n c e why it's quirky for the Sex Pistols to have a song that's anti-abortio n when that clearly goes against principles of individual liberty free of government interference .

I...WANNA BE... ANARCHY!!!!!

Love the Sex Pistols.

Anarchy is literally without rule by a governing body, you f**king imbeciles. Prime definition of etymological breakdown A- without Arch- King or Prelate. Without a king, ergo, without a ruler or class of rulers.

Anarchy is on the far left, you moron.

Anarchy is at the far right of the political spectrum. Do your homework, kids.

Yes, this is an anti-abortio n song. Despite what some punks (read: Jello Biafra and his ilk) want you to think, not ALL punk is left-leaning . Some punk artists (such as Glen Danzing and Joey Ramone) are conservative s or libertarians .
