they argue that there's nothing wrong with...

because, supposedly, it's our right 
                     to kill.

which is exactly why killers are in prison...?

they argue that abortion is not murder, 
                        and still 
                                        they do not see it
                                                 for they cannot be it

              they don't understand
   that in the wave of their hand

they hold the power
to wither a flower

                              they say it is not
            that cognitive dissonance inside us creeps in
                                how could it not

        well, fine is it not?          no, we are 
                           merely stripping
                                   a child
                                              of it's right
                                                  to live

           nothing wring with that
