The Right To Choose Death… by Toni Cross

All these fights

Over women’s rights

And yet you forget

That it’s a death threat

You’d take my life

With an abortionist’s knife

As I float in the dark

You quench my life spark

Why do you try

To justify

My untimely death

My stolen breath?

How can you say

That I have no worth

When others would’ve rejoiced

On the day of my birth?
