This is a beautiful song by a group called Flipsyde about the lead singer’s remorse over ending his child’s life by abortion. I don’t listen to any sort of rap or hip/hop music so I found out about this on LifeSite News.
Apparently Kenny Rogers also wrote a song about a man regretting an abortion called “Water and Bridges.” I couldn’t find a video for it, but you can check out the song lyrics.
Conception involves two parties (three when you consider God’s hand), but the men, the fathers, very often get left behind in the abortion debate. The pro-choice movement seems to focus only on the woman and no one else. So many times I have heard that the father should have absolutely no input when a woman is deciding whether or not to keep a child. Meanwhile there would be no child in question, were it not for him.
Abortion is just as harmful to men as it is to women. At the National Prayer Breakfast in 1994 Mother Teresa said, “by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father is likely to put other women into the same trouble.” Pro-choicers don’t like to admit it, but so many abortions happen precisely because of the father’s input. It is quite common to hear women who have had abortions say that they did so because their boyfriend wanted it, or because he threatened to leave if she didn’t get one. On the flip side, many men desperately want to be fathers to their children, but are prevented when a woman goes ahead with the abortion against his wishes. Worse yet is when a man does not even find out about his child until after the abortion.
