After 48 years of legalized abortion and 62 million dead children, society should be mourning.
Instead, on Friday, the 48th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, singers Amanda Shires, Cyndi Lauper, Sheryl Crow and others released a song celebrating their so-called right to abortion.
USA Today reports Shires, a Grammy award-winning singer, wrote the song “Our Problem” after she had an abortion and a friend supported her through it.
To produce it, she said she asked a group of women who she “could look up to and trust” to help her. They included Lauper, Crow, Angie Stone, Morgane Stapleton, Linda Perry, K.Flay, Nona Hendryx, Lilly Hiatt, Peaches and Valerie June, as well as Shires’ husband, Jason Isbell, according to the report.
The lyrics of the song include: “Are you feeling well? Are you gonna tell?” and “Everything’s gonna be OK / It’s gonna be alright / I’m on your side.”
Proceeds from the song will be donated to The Yellowhammer Fund, a pro-abortion group in Alabama that helps women get abortions, the report states.
Shires said she wrote the song after a friend of hers who “didn’t believe the same things I did” drove her to her abortion appointments and supported her. Shires said her friend helped her come to a peace about her decision.
“Sometimes people who are anti-choice, they believe that others choose this flippantly almost,” Shires said. “Unless you’re around or have experienced it, you really don’t understand it as much.”
But pro-life advocates do understand abortion – some all too well. Pro-life leaders include many mothers and fathers whose unborn babies were aborted or abortion survivors themselves. They know the painful consequences of an abortion; they understand that its purpose is to intentionally destroy a unique, irreplaceable human child’s life.
For example, 375 women who were injured when their unborn babies were killed in second- and third-trimester abortions recently urged the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold a Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks. The women said they know from personal experience that “allowing unlimited access to late term abortion after 15 weeks will mean countless women will suffer ‘devastating psychological injuries’ which may last a lifetime.” Thousands of others have shared their stories of abortion regret through the Silent No More Awareness Campaign.
Abortions are tragedies to mourn, not “choices” to celebrate. Since Roe v. Wade, approximately 62,502,904 unborn babies have been killed in “safe, legal” abortions, and countless mothers and fathers, grandparents and siblings, have suffered from physical and psychological consequences.
