Abortion Poem II: Scab

The poem below is something I wrote that wasn't inspired by anything in particular other than the fact that abortion is murder and occurs every day in this country. Hopefully, Harriot Miers is the evangelical Christian our great President has made her out to be and will overturn Roe v. Wade. Anyway, the poem:

Scab

Hush child,
Your heart beats,
But your mother will make it stop.

Hush child,
You’ll never have a chance to cry,
Because your mother wants...

Hush child,
You’ll never have a chance to breathe,
Because your mother can...

Hush child,
You’ll never have a chance to see the light
Because your mother doesn’t...

Hush child,
You are nothing more than
A scab.

A scab
Your mother picks
Because your mother wants
Because your mother can
Because your mother doesn’t.

Your mother wants you to die
Your mother can only seethe
Your mother doesn’t want you to breathe.

You are just another scab
Your mother picks
Until there is nothing left.

Hush child,
Hush child,
Hush child,
Hush.

Beautiful AND poignant. Thank God Nathaniel wasn't aborted! Who would show us the way?

I'm glad you like it. I probably would have been aborted had my mother been impregnated AFTER Roe v. Wade. You too, brother. Let's pray that judicial activism is ended.

wow, yeah... just be too bad if someone raped you then, huh?.. then i guess you wouldn't be able to purge the "seed of hate" growing inside YOU

oh yeah, and another thing... the 2000th american soldier has died in Iraq and and the Nation is in debt to the tune of 7.9 Trillion dollars (7,900,000,000,000) I'd like to see you pay off THAT much money with you franchise of "Jesus" stores. Hah!

Nate: I don't think that our president is as bad as you say. He IS doing some good after all. Personally I'm not complaining because he hasn't hindered MY everyday life.

The Poem: It's a nice poem, but you say that abortion is pure murder. This I can understand, but what about the practicality of it? The child is still living off instinct, and the Mother (Earth) is having a difficult enough problem as it is, what with over 6 billion people overpopulating the world.

But your opinion is your opinion and I respect it for what it is.

nate: when the end times come, we won't have to worry about the 7.9 trillion dollars in debt. the only debt you or i have to worry about is our debt to jesus.

also, a woman who is raped should still not be allowed to have an abortion. God chose her and has a plan for her child. if she doesn't want the baby, give it up for adoption. it seems that you suffer from what most people in this nation suffer: an inability to sacrifice for the lord.

But by giving the baby to adoption is forcing people to sacrifice for the baby. Money goes to the child, food, and other things.

I do believe that no child should be slain, but I do beleive that abortion should be an option.

Only God has the right to choose life or death, regardless of the suffering we must endure to protect life. If a woman doesn't want to pay for a child, then put it up for adoption -- there are thousands of willing parents on waiting lists. Otherwise, you are simply arguing that we should murder a child because a woman will get fat for 9 months. that is unacceptable and selfish.

A child to live a life, congealed from a mistake. What kind of life is that?

If there are thousands on waiting lists then shouldn't there be NO orphans at the moment?

Well, obviously the system isn't perfect and doesn't work the way we would expect.

Yes adoption is easily an option.

BUT!

I would loathe myself if a mistake of mine led to the birth and life of someone who could never know the wretched, painful truth. I couldn't stand knowing that there is a child suffering because of one mistake I made.

PLUS: If the child is still a child of God would he/she not go to heaven? This benefits the child as the child doesn't have an opportunity for mistake.

Logic like this causes a blurred line in what is good and what is bad.

RIGHT! RIGHT!
how could I have been so blind?...

Everyone in the world's crazy but YOU!

In fact, you're the only one that's not crazy right?

Yeah, you'll all be saved BEFORE we have to pay up huh? how convienient it is!, that YOU know the exact time that armageddon will come!

Also, you seem to have overlooked the loss of our good american american soldiers, for 2000 have died in a pointless, holy war.

Blogger Nathaniel said...

no, not everyone but me is crazy; but everyone who is not a good christian has been corrupted by the Devil. and i'm not quite sure what the troops have to do with anything. i would agree, however, that it is a pointless war -- our troops should only be used to spread the word of God and wipe sin from the Earth.

You said "only God has the right to choose life or death,"...and only God can judge...how recently have u been voted into that position? Who gave u the right to judge women who are left feeling so desperate, or anyone for that matter?

A 16 year old girl is brutally raped, left with the option to abort or give up for adoption, and she realizes that she in fact loves this child and does not want to harm it but can't stand the idea of looking at that child reliving her rape every second of everyday. So she thinks to give it up for adoption but she can't stand the idea that something so beautiful was created in exchange for her life, her blood, her scars, her sanity.

When u grow a uterus, give me a shout!

"Are we God? Sometimes I have to wonder if that's who we think we are!"

R u kidding me how do u get off calling women murderers and than turn around and say something like that? Judgement day will come and God will judge the men and women who have sinned, including those who have aborted...so why don't u follow what u preach and leave it to God...or write a poem about options women have instead of abortions or volunteer a day at a women's shelter and help those who have kept their children and are trying to make ends meet. Whatever it is, follow in God's footsteps. Stop wasting ur time judging women who are already dealing with so much of their own grief and who's judgement day will come.

melania -- perhaps one day i will grow a uterus, because the world in which you wish us to live will be so overcome by sin, we will allow scientists to genetically alter men so everyone can experience what it's like to be woman. In fact, liberals will demand it be so under the equal protection clause of the Constitution. and whether or not you actually believe it wrong that we force men to grow uteruses, you'll nonetheless say nothing because that would be judgmental. We should just leave them be and let God be the judge. Well sorry; if i see murder happening every day and allowed under the laws of my country, I'm going to write a poem about it!

"Make all men grow uteruses!"

Hahaha, then the entire country would be women, and we would...

ALL DIE OUT!

Thus leaving the United States of America a country inhabited by an army of corpses.

Hmm. I really think our country would waste money to kill off everyone just so men can understand what it's like to be a woman. It's not like the government has, like, a JOB to do. Oh heck no.

Nathaniel...I never proposed that all men grow a uterus...maybe you can try not to take what i say out of context and read between the lines a little.

I believe the main point of my arguement was that you're a hypocrit who doesn't practice what he preaches. But I understand now that within your religion you can agree with some morals and values and not with others.

What about if the child puts the life of the mother in danger? Diabetics for instances, in severe cases are put into a coma by the hormonal changes that pregnancy wreaks on the female body.

Sirius - Just because the men grow uteruses doesn't mean they don't still have... other parts. And I am not going to get into that any further because I am slightly creeping myself out.

I do not agree with abortion, but I agree with free will, and that a woman has a right to make choices reguarding her own body. YES even if it is a fetus which will become another person. After all, children are under their parents care anyway - how many parents murder their children in the United States? Maybe not that many, but it does happen, it has happened, it will happen again. How many children get beaten because their parents get drunk, or are on crack highs, or other horrible conditions? Its a tough call whether or not these children would have been better off not being born at all. At least, for me it is.
