I wrote this song for those who are most neglected, forgotten about. The ones we want to dehumanize most. We like to dehumanize, because it makes it easier to neglect them. Or ignore them. Or in this case – kill them…
If babies in the womb are not human – if they are truly globs of goo – then my assertion is completley wrong, there is nothing to be concerned with, right?
But you know you don’t believe that. You wept when you lost your baby in the womb. Or you were overjoyed, and excited when you found out you had a child in the womb. What is different? Your choice?
A heartbeat in 19 days. A heart can’t beat, without the brain telling it to? But I’m not a scientist, I could be wrong.
DNA at conception. AT CONCEPTION. So what – so a tomato has DNA. But a tomato’s DNA doesn’t change into a peaches DNA. Nor does the baby’s DNA in the womb change at birth, from a glob of goo’s DNA to that of a human being. It’s human DNA at conception. This baby in the womb is a human being…
This is a life. We all know it. I don’t want to vote my argument. I don’t want to run around making abortion illegal. Others are doing that, and good for them.
But I do want to talk about it. You may hate me for this discussion. But I’m asking you – would you have the discussion?
And I’m willing to hear you out. You have a story. You may have had an abortion, or paid for one. Tell me your story. Let’s talk. Let’s not gloss over it, or make it ok – but at the same time I am not interested in making you a monster. You’re not. You’re a victim, my dear friend. A victim of a society who by now has never know abortion as anything BUT holy and righteous. Think about that – Roe V Wade was what, 1974? 33 years ago? And how many years before that was the message argued that abortion is good? So how can we know different? NOBODY IS LEFT who knew different.
3000 babies are killed in America, every day. EVERY. DAY…
Are you really ok with that?
Please don’t answer here, with your quick knee-jerk response. Please, please consider this, and answer that for yourself… And then, if you are willing, come talk to me. I Would so appreciate it.
I wrote this from the perspective of those who never had a voice. Who never had a name – at least not to us. Who were all known by their Creator…
I wonder will she think of me?
Will anyone think of me again?
Will nights be long for anyone?
Will anyone give me a name?
Among the faceless the nameless…
How can I expect you to care?
How can I expect you to love?
Would You give me a name?
Would You see my face?
I am seen…
I am known…
