Our Right to Choose!

Tune:  If You’re Happy and You Know It

(Start off slowly)

If you want the right to choose, join with us

If you want the right to choose, join with us

When we hear the word abortion

It so often shows distortion

Grannies know we sometimes need to make a fuss.

 

In the past when men controlled these female bods

And made decisions for us – kind of gods

Took away our right to choose

There were hangers and abuse

We fought so hard for women-centred laws.

 

With abortion, it’s the women’s voice we trust   

She knows her choices best…. this is a must  

Although it may bring consternation

To religions or a nation

Our bodies simply must belong to us.

 

We abhor those gory photos now in use

The pregnant person has the right to choose  

You may like it or may lump it

Even Parliaments can’t trump it

A human right – and one we dare not lose.

 

(rousing last verse)

If you want the right to choose it, clap your hands

If you DO not want to lose it, clap your hands

If you trust in women’s choices….  

(slowly) Over patriarchal voices

Time to fight again and clap your hands!
