A Baby's Not A Baby

 

The angry protesters

excuse it and warn

A baby's not a baby

until it is born

but heartbeats and sonograms

now sound the alarm

the truth is a baby's

a person unborn

 

They say Abortion's distortion

just use a better word

Extraction is gentler

and much more preferred

but there's no denying

that killing's not mourned

when a baby's not a baby

until it is born

 

It's only an embryo

no humanity there

it's only some tissue

so no need to scare

if you call it a baby

it will justify scorn

so say a baby's not a baby

until it is born

 

Don't give it a gender

or even a name

it's just a tumor

so what if there's pain

it's just inconvenient

don't say do no harm

say a baby's not a baby

until it is born.
