ABORTION – A POEM
From the Baby's Perspective
They don't know I can hear them, as they argue once again.
My Mom and Dad are yelling, saying, 'what if it's a sin?'
I hear my Father pacing, as he walks across the room,
But, I am safe and cozy here inside my Mother's womb.
In four more months, I'm going to see, the look upon their face,
But, now I am still growing, as I look around this place.
I have all my fingers, and I see all of my toes,
I think that I am perfect, as my little body grows.
They don't know I'm a little girl, I hope they are surprised,
I can't wait to see the happy look that's in their eyes.
I know that I have sisters, and I know I have a brother,
I wonder what they meant by, 'we just can't afford another.'
I hear my Daddy saying, 'the appointment is tomorrow.'
Then he walked out and all I'm feeling now is Mommy's sorrow.
It's late as I can feel my Mommy crawling into bed.
I wonder why she's crying, as I feel her pat my head.
Oh well, it's time to go to sleep, she's laying on her back.
I feel so comfortable tonight, I don't think I'll attack.
Sometimes when she is on her back, it doesn't feel quite right,
And sometimes all that I can do is toss and turn all night.
But I am comfortable tonight, so I can get some sleep,
And as I slowly close my eyes, I hear my Mother weep.
Then suddenly I hear my Dad say, 'wake up sleepy head,
We're going to the doctor's office, so get out of bed.'
It is early morning, and I slept all through the night,
But now I feel my Mother tensing, something isn't right.
I hear my Daddy saying, 'time to get that baby out,'
And now I become worried, as I hear my Mother shout.
I must have been mistaken, and I must have counted wrong,
Could it already be nine months? It didn't seem that long.
I've heard them talk "cesarean" my brother came that way,
If that is how I will be born, this is my lucky day.
Now I hear more voices, of a doctor and a nurse,
But, wait a minute, I feel pain and it is getting worse.
What is going on, I want to see my Mom and Dad,
But all I feel is pain and it is really getting bad.
I'm starting to get woozy, I hope this is over soon,
I see the light as I am being dragged out from the womb.
I'm losing strength, I can't go on, my body is so weak,
And now there's nothing left to do, so I drift off to sleep.
Then suddenly I am awake, now what's that beating sound,
I do not see my Mom and Dad, they're no where to be found.
The pain is gone, and I feel like I'm flying through the air,
And I am in the arms of someone, that must really care.
I feel the tender arms I'm in, and I feel so much love,
And then I realize, they are the angels from above.
My mind is so confused, and all my thoughts need to be sorted,
But then I understand, when one of them whispers, "aborted."

In her poem titled, “the mother,” Pulitzer Award poet Gwendolyn Brooks says, “Abortions will not let you forget, You remember the children you got that you did not get.”
Abortion is the deliberate termination of a human pregnancy. There are two reasons I would like to offer as to why we are against abortion.
1. Human life is sacred:
Human life is so sacred that God gave a law in Genesis 9:6 “Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.” Numbers 35:30 that says “Anyone who kills a person is to be put to death …” This is repeated in Leviticus 24:17 hat says “Anyone who takes the life of a human being is to be put to death.”
Human life did not originate any other way than from God. The Big Bang Theory we all have heard about seems to infer that there was a big explosion and the universe just appeared and planets and stars were formed, then life began and proceeded to evolve. Experts however say that there was no explosion; there was (and continues to be) an expansion. Rather than imagining a balloon popping and releasing its contents, imagine a balloon expanding: an infinitesimally small balloon expanding to the size of our current universe. Cosmogony (the study of the origin of the universe) is an area where science and theology meet. Creation was a supernatural event. It took place outside of the natural realm. We know that this universe had a beginning. Was God the "First Cause"? Yes Genesis 1:1 explains that: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” God made the ever-expanding universe, He made the plants, trees, water, seas, land, hills, mountains, valleys, rivers, lilies, roses, birds, fish, animals and humans.
