A RAPPER'S WORD TO THE SO-CALLED PRO-LIFERS

"You remember my boyfriend sid that fly kid who i love 
Well our love was often a verb and spontaneity has brought a third 
But do to our youth an economic state we wish to terminate 
About this we don't feel great , but baby that's how it is 
but the feds have dissed me 
They ignore and dismiss 
and the pro-lifers harrass me outside the clinic 
and call me a murderer, now that's hate 
So needless to say we're in a mental state of debate" 
Hey beautiful bird i said digging her somber mood 
The fascists are some heavy dudes 
They don't really give a damn about life 
They just don't want a woman to 
control her body or have the right to choose 
But baby that ain't nothin 
They just want a male finger on the button 
Because if you say war they will send them to die by the score 
aborting mission should be your volition 
But if souter and thomas have their way 
You'll be standing in line unable to get welfare while they're out 
hunting and fishing 
It has always been around it will always have a niche 
But they'll make it a privelege not a right 
Accessible only to the rich 
Pro-lifers should dig themselves 
Cause life doesn't stop after birth 
And to a child born to the unprepared 
It might even just get worse 
Supporters of the h-bomb and fire bombing clinic 
What type of shit is that? orwellian in fact 
If roe v wade was overturned would not the desire remain intact 
Leaving young girls to risk their healths 
and doctors to botch and watch as they kill themselves 
I don't want to sound macabre 
But hey, isn't it my job 
to lay it on the masses and get them off their asses 
To fight against these fascists 
So whatever you decide make that move with pride.
