buying music for christmas? beware!


washington, dec. 16 /prnewswire/ -- rock for life is asking music buyers to
beware of what they are supporting with their music purchases.  consumers are
urged not to purchase music from artists who help raise money and support for
the abortion industry.


"most people don't know where their money goes or what these bands support,"
said bryan kemper, founder of rock for life.  "many of the bands on our list
give donations regularly to different pro-abortion organizations. these bands
also use their popularity to raise money by playing concerts or donating
songs."


rock for life has compiled a list of different artists who support the
abortion industry.  much of the information for this list was found on pro-
choice web sites that openly promote their concerts and cds.


the list includes artists such as paula cole, jewel, carrie newcomer, keb 'mo,
ani difranco, madonna, bonnie raitt, jackson browne, melissa etheridge, shawn
colvin, bruce hornsby, mary chapin carpenter, pearl jam, l7, soul asylum,
soundgarden, salt-n-pepa, red hot chili peppers, sarah mclachlan, indigo
girls, face to face, dance hall crashers, bush and many more.  a complete list
is available on rock for life's web site, www.rockforlife.org  


"when you spend money on these artists' cds and tapes, some of that money goes
to support the destruction of millions of babies.  abortion is the ultimate
hate crime.  we should not take enjoyment from the music of artists who help
to promote the destruction of innocent human life.  christmas is a time of
life and a celebration of life.  unfortunately, spending money on the wrong
thing this christmas can place the very gift of life in jeopardy for many
babies," kemper said.


rock for life is a division of american life league, the nation's largest pro-
life educational organization with more than 300,000 supporters.

"there's a happening new band out of birmingham, alabama, called three
finger cowboy. i hear strains of magnapop, t.rex and the ramones'
garage-pop punk. their new album, kissed could be a soundtrack for a movie
called high school desperado. i like a good southern band that plays as a
band with no grandstanding by anyone and no pretentsions, just good
songwriting- the kids wanna rock and roll."
