From A Lover Of The Foetus

Imaginatively supporting abortion
I believed that I was supporting the right
Of women to be free. To experience justice
But in doing so I was denying freedom and justice
To a foetus child- an innocent human being destined
To be denied the gift of life bestowed upon it by
Our species source.

If I personally had been denied the latter gift of life I
Would not be writing here on behalf of my fellow human
Beings. A commitment based upon my love of life in- spite
Of the reality of life’s negativity.

As a species our history confirms that we are lovers of peace
And the mid-wife of the latter is justice. But if we lack justice
There will be no peace. Thus abortion is unjust and is the basis
Of the lack of peace within the hearts and the minds
Of abortionists and their supporters. In- spite of
Their statements to the contrary.

The latter a love lacking satanic influenced movement
Which is destined to encounter the truth
At the moments of their own deaths
Without experiencing an abortion.
