Wrong - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

Homicide or murder,
aborting or killing.
It just doesn't seem right,
but people are willing.

The blinded people don't see
that so many lives are taken.
The baby just dies,
never to awaken.

Abortion is murder;
it's all the same.
It's a matter of death,
not just a game.

So you chose to kill,
you thought it was the right thing to do.
Now your baby is dead,
and you wish you were too.

You made a mistake,
now just who has to pay?
Don't blame the poor baby,
he deserved to stay.

    It's a very powerpacked poem on a very relevant theme, but i don't think killing in war or getting killed in halacaust is abortion..or is it?

    A title that will always provoke disscussion. You make your point reasonalby well,
    alhtough there are two sides to a coin. I think you have simplified the act of abortion to enable the poem to work. It is not as simple as you make it sound.
    in your first line you state that people are willing, this is not always the case, willing suggests that the decesion is made instantly without thinking about the actions and how they will effect the person.
