On Abortion - Poem by Eric Cockrell

on abortion...
those who rage against abortion
most often do not put themselves
in the position of the mother.
while all of life is sacred,
there are times when abortion
becomes necessary.
when the mother's life is in danger,
in cases of rape,
in cases where the mother
cannot be the mother...
and only the mother-to-be
has the right to make this decision.
it is the woman's choice, bottom line.
we must educate ourselves
so that we know that all choices
have their costs...
again, it is the woman's choice.
abortion was never meant to be birth control,
but sometimes, it is the best option.
again, it is the woman's choice!

    How many thousands of fetuses are aborted in the backyard clinics of various countries, as abortion is illegal in mos of the countries. Though the Abortion act is hypocritical, if it is made legal, the problems may not be controllable, so the governments keep the eyes closed to these so called maternity clinics, which are prospering with abortion business! ! !
