Demi Lovato’s New Song Says Women Who Don’t Want Abortions Are No Better Than Pigs

July 5, 2023

On the first anniversary of the Dobbs decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, Demi Lovato released a heinous song about abortion. The song is called “Swine,” and it crudely screams about Lovato’s pro-abortion ideology. Live Action commented on the song, emphasizing “all profits from the song will be donated to the Reproductive Justice Fund at the Demi Lovato Foundation, which will then give the funds to NARAL Pro-Choice America, Plan C, and The National Network of Abortion Funds.” Again, looking up or listening to this song will directly fund pro-abortion organizations.

In addition to the financial concern, the lyrics of the song portray a clear message: women who can’t murder their babies are no better than pigs. The lyrics of the chorus include, “My life, my voice / My rights, my choice / It’s mine, or I’m just swine.” Lovato also refers to women as “birthing people” throughout the song. Live Action posted about it with the caption, “Telling women they need abortion in order to be considered better than “swine” is the opposite of female empowerment.”

Unfortunately, this song is being received by Lovato’s fans rather well in spite of its pro-abortion agenda. But under Demi Lovato and Live Action’s Instagram posts about the song, many are also making known their disgust. Several comments highlight that “women are not ‘birthing persons,’ they’re women.” Others point out how “inhumane” and “sickening” the lyrics are. A Live Action commentator shared, “This is a terrible song. … Defending the lives of our own children in the womb does not make us swine or pigs. It makes us strong. We have a superpower that can grow human beings inside of our wombs, and it should never be reduced or mocked.”

Emphasizing Lovato’s demonic behavior in the last several years, one viewer commented, “We are all aware of Lovato’s struggle with inner demons. It seems those demons have begun to present themselves vocally. Pray for Lovato, and pray for all the mothers and unborn children she is harming by her support of death culture.”

The problem is bigger than the song, Family Research Council Senior Fellow for Biblical Worldview Joseph Backholm commented to The Washington Stand. He said, “[Lovato’s lyrics,] ‘My body, my choice’ is the anthem of secularism. What she’s really objecting to is the idea that she can’t do whatever she wants. Not that long ago, she declared herself to be non-binary and was asking to be referred to by they/them pronouns as well. It’s all coming from the same place; a desire to be in charge of herself.”

In light of how this is viewed from a biblical worldview, Backholm continued, “Where Christianity declares ‘Jesus is Lord of all’ secularism declares ‘I am Lord of me.’ She is doing exactly what her worldview would lead her to do with terrible consequences. But for her, loss of control is even worse than the death of a child, so she sacrifices the child for the sake of control.”

Live Action concluded the conversation around Demi Lovato’s song with this simple truth: “Abortion reduces women and their children to objects that can be used and discarded. It’s time to abolish it.”
