It's our Body!

Not Yours!

By Stephanie DownardPublished 2 years ago 1 min read

Why should you choose?

It's not your body!

It's not your choice!

What about our voice?

This isn't Fair!

This isn't Right!

Girls let's Fight!

What about the girls who said no?

Those forced to reap what you have sown!

Stuck with consequences because of another

What if it was your wife, your child, your mother?

This isn't Fair!

This isn't Right!

Girls let's Fight!

How about the ones who could die?

Will you be there holding their hand as they cry?

What law will save them?

All you had to do was put down that pen!

This isn't Fair!

This isn't Right!

Girls let's Fight!

What about the ones who can't feed that baby when it comes?

The poor children stuck in the system because you wouldn't listen.

Those you said you would protect

Now have to live with horrible neglect.

This isn't Fair!

This isn't Right!

Girls let's Fight!

All these reasons seem pretty good to me

So why is it you can't see?

It's our body!

It's our choice!

This isn't Fair!

This isn't Right!

Girls let's Fight!
