And bigotry reigned for 40 days and 40 nights
Outside a clinic – where women sought advice
To make a tough decision they’ll live with all their life
Then ’40 days for Lies’ turn up – and add to all the strife
Some reasons for abortion are abuse, violence and rape
Then some bible bashing nutter shouts, “you’re making a mistake!”
And tries to claim abortion is another holocaust
An argument in which all proportion’s lost
And then the tiny throng bleat out hymns like breying sheep
And talk to ‘God the Master’ , with eyes closed like they’re asleep
They argue every baby’s part of God’s special plan
Is that the one where I’ll perish – like a ‘kentucky fried human’?
So if a complete stranger shafts you with his rod
And you end up pregnant – well its just an act of God.
I know I sound quite drippy – I know I’ll be reviled
But I just happen to think each child should be a wanted child
I have some lovely children – I wouldn’t give up one
But that was a decision which I came to with their mum
Our rights have been hard fought for – we can’t afford to lose
A very basic concept – a woman’s right to choose.
