To Mommy and Daddy,
Why is it you didn’t want me?
I promise you were both revered
As I formed inside of Mommy I thought,
I can’t wait to meet them finally!

But you threw me away so easily
Like a simple ball of cells
I’m not blaming you, I just
Wish you had given me more of a chance

Maybe I wouldn’t have been the best child
Because of my physical problems
Maybe I would have been hard to handle
Because of my mental disability

Maybe you didn’t have the money
Maybe you just weren’t ready
But whatever the reason was
I want you both to know
You’re forgiven and still so loved
I'm going to make this short and sweet:
Yes, this poem is about abortion. Yes, I know it's highly, highly controversial. Yes, I'm pro-life. Yes, I left the comments open.
No, I'm not doing this for views or likes or watchers. No, I will not allow hateful comments to me or other members. No, I will not change my views, no matter how many curses you pile on me.

If you want to ask me why I'm pro-life, go ahead. If you want to challenge my views in a respectful way, go ahead. But if you're going to use this poem as a dumping site for your pent up vitriol, I will 1. Remove your comment and 2. Block you. For some reason every time some controversial poem rolls onto dA, there always has to be a number of people that feel they're superior than the author and needs to write them some hate-filled comment. Don't do that on my poem. I don't want to deal with you, and you certainly don't want to deal with me.

this...almost made me cry. one of my best friends was a failed abortion...i too, am pro life. the only ONLY time i think abortion is okay is if a woman was raped and impregnated with her rapist child. and ONLY then because i know how hard it would be for that child to find out it was a rape baby... that is the only time i think it is okay

Loved this! Kudos for your courage to speak the truth: Abortion is murder, plain and simple. It's selfish and not even giving that child a chance to be who it is that God planned them to become all along! Everyone deserves a chance, to be able to experience that unconditional love.

As someone who was a "surprise", as it was explained to me (what this means is that my parents didn't actually plan to have me), and could have been aported, I like this very much. BTW: I think that you're a great person to say that you are pro-life. So am I. Dont let anyone change that. Keep doing what you do.

I was supposedly planned, but my father treats me like a "surprise," so I know what you mean. I'm glad your parents chose to keep you :) It's always cool to hear about parents that actually take responsibility for their actions and raise their "surprise" child, not throw them away like they're the destructive radioactive result from some experiment...

I'm glad you enjoyed the poem and thanks for the support. I'm used to everyone being pro-choice and then attacking the pro-lifers, so I'm surprised no one has raided my poem with hate comments yet... Guess it was a good idea to put that stern warning on my author comment after all xD Anyway, I'm glad I found another pro-lifer. Even when others try to persuade you that you're wrong, I hope you stay strong as well and continue to support the lives that are so often and easily thrown away :)

No kidding... I could rant about this all day, but the excuses for abortion are getting worse. I don't know if you're an avid debater, but you might have heard of the "it's not a human" theory? I want to simultaneously laugh and cry whenever I hear that excuse thrown out there. You mean to tell me /two humans/ come together, the /human/ egg is fertilized by the /human/ sperm...and it creates something /not human/?? Please. Where's the logic...? And I've heard /doctors/--people that spent painstaking YEARS to get to their position--use this excuse. I don't need to be a doctor to see that a fetus is human. I don't even need to be in college to see that...

And don't even get me started on the guys that use the "women's rights" excuse when they treat women like trash. Just makes me want to vomit...

Agreed, and then there are those who say that we are overpopulating when if you look at the statistics, we are actually UNDERPOPULATING!

AND THEN there are those that believe adoption is MORE CRUEL than aborting. I just... What even is this world anymore...

The sad thing is, most of the time abortions occur because they just didn't want the baby. I was nice in my poem, but it makes me sick when someone just decides that a fetus--a potential child--doesn't deserve to live only because they as the parents don't want to take care of it. The lack of responsibility and care is beyond disturbing.
