In an article entitled “Five Pro-Life Women Celebrities Worthy of Your Support“, pro-life website lifenews.com credits an anti-abortion statement to Dolores O’Riordan and distorts “The Icles Melts” lyrics meaning.
It looks like the author relied on some random blog to support her article.
Although The Cranberries’ lead singer made a comment on abortion that could be interpreted as anti-abortion back in the mid 90’s, she more recently told The Los Angeles Times in 2009 that she “prefers not to disclose how she feels”.
As a matter of fact, O’Riordan associated herself to South Dakota, a movie that “presents interviews with experts on those questions with opposing views about a woman’s right to choose“.
As for “The Icicle Melts”, it is commonly known that the song is about the murder of two-year old Jamie Bulger by two minors in Liverpool, back in the early 90’s.
