The Child Who Was Never Born
By: Martin Hudaceka
I am the human being denied the right to breathe,
And I cry not for myself but the legacy they leave.
I am the voice in your conscience that cries from the bleak.
I am the words that the world is not willing to speak.
I am the gaze you will never see,
For I am the child who will never be.
I am the memory you cannot forsake,
I am the life they had no right to take.
But I am the error, the unfortunate mistake
I am the cold shiver that keeps you awake.
I am the touch that you will not feel.
I am the spirit that you cannot conceal.
They may tear me away,
And tear me apart,
But I had a right to life from before the start.
I am the heart that will not cease to beat
I am the footprints without any feet.
I am the innocent you can't put to sleep.
For I am the tears that the fallen will weep.
"It is interesting that today many women are so educated beyond their intelligence that they no longer understand the way God created them - with a womb to nurture life and breasts to nourish that precious life." ~ Nancy Campbell
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)
"The value of life has not changed; our culture has. We must turn from being a culture of death to one that values life. When life is not valued inside the womb, it will not be valued outside the womb."
"We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child." ~ Ronald Reagan
"Someone else's life should not be terminated because it interferes with yours." ~ Unknown
