lyrics inspired by the movie Unplanned Ms. Sally loved the parties, spent her nights out "on the town." Her door was open for the boys, whenever they came ‘round. Then one morning when she woke she knew that things weren’t right, She punched up numbers on her phone, and called "Abortion Rights." They sympathized and named a friendly obstetrician man. He met her with a smile, and hypodermic in his hand. She felt a shock , the womb convulse, and then a searing pain. The child was born, and gave a cry—and never cried again. It’s called ‘abortion rights’ No one would ever dare . . . To call it - foolish Every doctor takes an oath to do the very best he can To do no harm,* and most stay true, in this once Godly land, But some inject a mother so the child within her womb Is born, a lifeless corpse, and stacked like garbage in the room. It’s called abortion rights, And none would ever dare . . . To call it - reckless There are some that some call "doctor," and some gov’ners in our land That hide the truth in silken words, so we won’t understand. They say, “comfort the new-born” —what a mockery of words! They mean, “A pillow on its face, the choking won’t be heard.” They call that “comforting” They say “abortion rights” They know it’s - murder . *Hippocratic oath: “never do harm” and “not cause an abortion” . .
