During the hours and hours of hearings on the 20-week abortion ban in Texas yesterday, one pro-abortion activist stuck out and has received national attention for reading a sick poem to lawmakers.

Katie Heim read a poem to legislators titled, “If My Vagina Was a Gun.” The text of the disgusting poem appears below, courtesy of the Daily Texan web site:

Lawmakers continued to hear testimony as the afternoon waned away.

Testimony has included personal stories, tears, calls to religion and scientific statements.

Austinite Katie Heim was one of many to testify before the committee. Unlike the other testifiers, she read a poem she wrote, called “If My Vagina Was a Gun.

“If my vagina was a gun, you would stand for its rights,
You would ride on buses and fight all the fights.
If my vagina was a gun, you would treat it with care,
You wouldn’t spill all its secrets because, well, why go there.
If my vaginas was a gun, you’d say what it holds is private
From cold dead hands we could pry, you surely would riot.
If my vagina was a gun, its rights would all be protected,
no matter the body count or the children affected.
If my vagina was a gun, I could bypass security,
concealed carry laws would ensure I’d have impunity.
If my vagina was a gun, I wouldn’t have to beg you,
I could hunt this great land and do all the things men do.
But my vagina is not a gun, it is a mightier thing,
With a voice that rings true making lawmakers’ ears ring.
Vaginas are not delicate, they are muscular and magic,
So stop messing with mine, with legislation that’s tragic.
My vagina’s here to demand from the source,
Listen to the voices of thousands or feel their full force.”
