Her Voice, Silenced

FullSizeRender-2Today marks the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in our country. Since the decision, more than 57 million abortions have been performed in the United States, roughly 30 million of which were females.


A girl’s error, a mother’s choice
The quickest fix silenced the voice.

That could’ve spoken life to men
That could’ve lifted a best friend
That could’ve brought a war to end
That could’ve caused a heart to mend.

That could’ve taught a child to to read
That could’ve blessed a soul in need
That could’ve inspired some great deed
That could’ve led a girl to lead.

Life’s chance was squelched for freedom’s sake
Mid-dream she stayed, ne’er to awake
Her form was split by choice’s quake
Perfect design turned deadly mistake.

O mother, nature weeps for you
No doubt you had the power
Yet now you know the weakness
Of your seedling in that hour.

For she was made for greatness
Hope for women she could alter
But now we mourn and pray with you
Our world has one less daughter.


Psalm 139: 13-16-“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”


  1. Beautiful and terrifying: “A voice was heard on high of lamentation, of mourning, and weeping, of Rachel weeping for her children, and refusing to be comforted for them, because they are not.”
