Whitney Albright

Rookie (07-31-1988 / Alabama)


Their little hearts beat
Inside of their mother
Tiny hands and feet
You kill one after another

Why do you want them dead?
It's a brand new life
Yet you plunge into their heads
With a surgical knife

They will never see a sunny day
You will never hear their voice
And to think, you can stand and say
It is freedom of choice?

This life, it's in God's will
His own work of art
It is not yours to kill
It's not your place to stop their hearts!

This baby cannot even cry
Who will cry for the child inside of you, who?
This child that will die?
I will cry for the child that dies inside of you!

    powerful poem! you clearly show the brutality and evil of abortion. I wish that people knew what they were doing before they make the choice to kill their child. (Report) Reply

    i do agree with your poem and its very sad. but some times i do belive people should have abortions if death is involved for the mother.
    good poem though :) (Report) Reply

    Great poem. ABORTION IS MURDER! ! ! ! It is unbelieveable that people can think that murder is a terrible tragedy, yet say that they are 100% fune about killing an unborn baby. The moment a baby is concieved, even when it is just starting to developr, it is a baby. Those who perform abortions and those who consent to have abortion are murderers. That's all there is to it!

    Your strong views are very evident in this excellent poem. Although personally I don't view the procedure as wrong. I worry much more about the prolific breeding or our species, and the consequent burden on our planet and animals. This is another very enjoyable write from you though, well done. (Report) Reply
