Women not Wombs
It's not just young couples making a choice
I am for life please have your baby, okay
It's a farce about the tissue inside, mother has no voice
having an abortion Dr. and his incision
It's gets much darker, still to this day
Incested, rapped, not her decision
Self-kit abortion leaves her torn
Fundamentalists look away
after unwanted baby is born
Aretha Franklin, raped (her father's parties) by his men
No choice of hers, pregnant at ten
Save the baby? Mother dies? they'll decide
More stories like these will unfold in the end
They don't hate Gays--they hate what they do
It's sodomy, old laws come back
Couples no longer need do that, you!
In your own home, behind closed doors
Healthcare, abortion Mills under attack
The ignorant call you heathens and whores!
Dedicated to: Annie Ernaux, French writer. Annie's work is about her experience with abortion when it was illegal in France in the 60's. The movie just out "Happening"
