LOS ANGELES, June 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) The lead singer of the band Blues Traveler has an unappetizing proposal for abortion: He believes mothers should be able to kill and eat their own children until they can "physically escape" from her.
John Popper, who penned the band's Grammy-winning song Run Around, did not beat around the bush in a series of 22 Twitter messages to Cleveland Plain Dealer Washington Bureau Chief Steve Koff on May 31. John Popper John Popper
Koff had just tweeted about how Popper was going to address gun rights before the National Press Club in D.C. this week.
In response, the northeast Ohio native discussed his long enthusiasm for firearms, then somehow tied abortion to Southerners who allegedly threatened to shoot members of the Ku Klux Klan when they tried to hold cross burnings.
In the exchanges, Popper felt as easy breaking free from grammatical and spelling conventions as he does melodic structures. He wrote of the need for a woman to decide if her fetis lives or dies. I personally believe as in nature that the mother gets to cook&eat her baby untill it can physicaly escape from her...but good luck making that into a lobby.
His position, he tweeted, is based on the individual having the right to make hard decisions.
Yes I'm pro choice, pro pot, pro gay marriage & ANTI [capital] gains tax, he tweeted later. I err on liberty's side..always have.
Popper, who was raised by a Jewish father and a Catholic mother, refers to himself as a recovering Catholic. He wrote a song, Trina Magna, as an attempt to secularize the Holy Trinity.
In 2012 he told the Voice of Russia: "I want everything to be legal. I want machine guns and abortions, and gay marriage, and no capital gains tax... and there's no place for me to be. I'm a man without a party, kind of."
He said he suffered a heart attack in 1999 while masturbating to pornography.
When a reader expressed his displeasure at the singer's enthusiasm for infanticide and cannibalism, Popper replied, Remember we're all god's babies...so we can all be murdered... wink That's what the plaugue was all about.

Popper thinks he’s cool because he plays the harmonica. What a douche-bag.
He’s still no longer relevant.
no longer? he ever was?
Well no wonder....clearly he is Fat Bastard.
Baby, the other other other white meat.
Get in muh belly!!
Once they have "physically escaped" from her, can they then kill and eat her?
He sure isn’t the one to make jokes about baby cannibalism without them rebounding on him hard, for sure.
It’s a whole band of douche bags. Heard them open for the stones once. They suck.
He doesn’t err on the side of liberty he errs on a triple cheeseburger.
What an evil being.
The whole article is full of his evil thoughts.
I’ve got so many bad things to say, that I’d better say nothing... so far, I’ve escaped the AM’s wrath.
Seriously, those guys look like twins
I didn’t even know he was still alive. I figured a coronary would have taken him out by now.
I think Fat Bastard is actually slimmer.
Wouldn’t it have been ironic if his mother had aborted him. Then he wouldn’t be in the gene pool and taking up space. Apparently A LOT of space from the pictures.
“he plays the harmonica.”
I’m a Country Blues guy. I like harmonicas. But can’t stand to listen to this guy. He’s a great player, but has no clue as to when too much is way too much! Constant high speed noodling.
Poor self-hating individual.
Well that says a lot for his character.
Radio stations in expensive ski resorts play a lot of his stuff.
Looks like someone’s crying out for attention...
This man seems confused.
In all fairness, John Popper is a wild and crazy guy. That is, he has a frat boy sense of humor, so take all this with a grain of salt. In many ways he is much like Ted Nugent.
Isn’t the placenta the traditional afterbirth meal?
Sick sick puppy.
