Abortion is an issue
We are facing in this land,
And someday each American
Will have to take a stand.
There comes a time in every life
When we must make our choices,
Deciding what is right or wrong
And then to raise our voices.
We will do this in the voting booth
When candidates we choose
Because these politicians
Will represent our views.
We must recall abortion laws,
It is up to every state.
This nation needs a change of heart
Before it is too late.
We read in the papers every day
That pro-lifers try to keep
Women out of the clinics,
For their unborn children weep.
To prevent unwanted pregnancies
The Bible says abstain.
Listening to the Word of God
Spares suffering and pain.
Pro-Choice groups don’t tell women
How remorseful they will feel;
Depressing thoughts will torment them
That time may never heal.
Elly Schuuring O’Connor
If we don’t love as God wants us to live and call ourselves Christians, we are taking the Lord’s name in vain.
