Unborn Child Replayed (1974-2014)

JI Spear, a Facebook friend, posted a link on my timeline to the old Seals and Croft song. "Unborn Child" was written in 1974. That was  the year after the infamous, tragic, and fatal [for millions of babies, that is] Roe v. Wade decision. That flawed and fabricated decision resulted in the legalized murder of millions upon millions of pre-born human beings.

I don't remember ever hearing that song. It contains from very heavy and powerful lyrics, which are just as pertinent and just as controversial today (or more so) as when they were first written and recorded ...
 
 
The actual lyrics to the YouTube song follow below.
 


Seals and Crofts' "Unborn Child"
 
(Lyrics by Lana Bogan; music by James Seals, 1974)
 
Oh little baby, you'll never cry, nor will you hear a sweet lullabye.
 
Oh unborn child, if you only knew just what your momma was plannin' to do.
You're still a-clingin' to the tree of life, but soon you'll be cut off before you get ripe.
Oh unborn child, beginning to grow inside your momma, but you'll never know.
Oh tiny bud, that grows in the womb, only to be crushed before you can bloom.
 
Mama stop! Turn around, go back, think it over.
Now stop, turn around, go back, think it over.
Stop, turn around, go back think it over.
 
Oh no momma, just let it be. You'll never regret it, just wait and see.
Think of all the great ones who gave everything
That we might have life here, so please bear the pain.
 
Mama stop! Turn around, go back, think it over.
Now stop, turn around, go back, think it over.
Stop, turn around, go back think it over
.
