Abortion Poem

Abortion! There are people who do not care about this topic. For a moment of fun between a boy and girl often ends in the serious topic of abortion. Mostly, the innocent child in the mother's womb becomes the victim or prey. I hope this poem will change many mothers' and fathers' minds so that the innocent, unheard voice will get a chance to live. Please don't give your child the name of abortion!

Unheard Voice


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2009 with permission of the Author.

Nine months are slowly getting close.
I am surrounded by the blanket of yours;
Slowly I am growing in your womb,
Please don't send me to the tomb;
Oh mother, can't you hear my voice?
Don't you have another choice?

Aren't you happy? You can see me soon.
I am excited to see the world of sun and moon;
In your womb, I am counting days,
To show you, mother, my little gaze;
Oh mother, can't you hear my voice?
Don't you have another choice?

Mother, I am excited for my first toy,
I promise I will become your joy;
Please don't feel me as a burden,
Whatever you decide cannot be undone;
Oh mother, can't you hear my voice?
Don't you have another choice?

I know you are waiting to see me play,
More than you I am excited to see that day;
Oh mother, won't you start my life story,
Please don't make my life a history;
Oh mother, can't you hear my voice?
Don't you have another choice?

I am excited to play in your lap,
With my deeds, I will make you clap;
Oh mother, give me a chance to live,
Even if you don't, I will forgive;
Oh mother, my life is now a question,
Please don't give it name of abortion.

What a touching poem. Feeling sorry for those little ones. All I can say is that I believe that God will never give you a challenge that is above you. Aborting your baby is wrong, but we all make mistakes. We just have to forgive ourselves and move on. May their little souls rest in perfect peace.

This poem touches my heart for when I was younger I was forced to abort by the baby's father and Grandmother. This is how I felt when he made me do it. I could hear the little voice but I felt it wasn't my choice.

I had an unplanned pregnancy a few years back. I was terrified but knew that aborting this child was out of the question. My husband and children would never forgive me nor could I forgive myself. To make a long story short however, the baby lived only six months after he was born due to complications. His struggle to live and untimely death broke everyone's heart and when I think about it I still cry. Had I known this would happen at the start of my pregnancy however, it would have changed nothing. I thank God for this priceless gift that will never be forgotten.

It's your own personal belief about abortions but keep them to yourself. I had to terminate my pregnancy due to health reasons and don't you ever tell me that I don't miss her every single day, it's almost the 9 month mark and I'm pulling out my hair because I miss her so much. I had to terminate my child but I shouldn't be made feel like a monster by someone that has never been through the horrible process.

To all you asking why people do it?
I did it. I was 16, My boyfriend had mental health issues I would have had nowhere to live, no job, my boyfriends family would of made our lives hell and I think I probably would have lost most of mine. I couldn't think, I thought on it for 3 weeks, I just, I just was blank I couldn't handle it all and if I couldn't even handle being pregnant how could I have handled being a mother? I regret what I did everyday of my life, I killed that little blip on the screen, my little blip. My little blip had eyelids and fingernails and I killed it. Everyone just kept telling me why it was a bad thing. I wish now I really had someone tell me why it was a good thing.
I had an abortion because I thought I would loose everything, I thought I would have a mental breakdown. It's a month down the line, and I have lost all of those things anyway, and I'm close to a mental breakdown, and I don't have my angel.

Abortion is something no one wants to go through.
When my sister was pregnant with my nephew they told her he was going to be born with a major heart defect, and the doctors told her to abort him every time she went to the doctor. They told her he was going to die once he was born, or he was going be mentally retarded, my sister decided to have my nephew either way and when he was born he was the most perfect baby. He didn't have anything wrong with him. Sometimes the doctors are wrong and everyone needs to let the baby be born in order to believe the doctors!

I had a baby girl called Bella she was born still born and tonight I found out if I have my baby boy it would kill me so I had to let him go and get a abortion. I miss Bella and my unborn baby boy every minute of my life if I had a chance I would have kept both.

Hello, I just want to say that I am adopted from Russia and it sickens me to think I could have been killed without any fight but I love my birth mother for thinking about me and loving me enough to protect me. Everyone says that it is harder to give up your own baby but I ask you.. is it easier to kill your own baby? Give your angel a chance... If I was aborted... I would not have been here to save a friend from committing suicide. Two lives saved <3

I am interested in the subject of abortion. The idea is appalling to me but I find it hard to ignore. Who would ever kill their little defenseless baby for no reason at all? But I guess, I can not really stop them from doing what they're doing. I will never abort unless absolutely necessary. Pro-Life is what should be right for most people but people have the free will to do what they think is best in their lives. I will not disagree with mothers who abort, but one fact.
If you kill a baby which you brought into this world, you go to jail for murder.
Why is abortion a different story all together?

  • Sadie by Sadie, Minnesota
  • 12 years ago

My name is Sadie, and I found out today I was pregnant. I have calculated my estimated length of pregnancy to be at about 5 weeks. In my excitement the first thing I did was tell my fiancé that we were expecting after 6 months of trying. I was expecting him to be surprised because of my endometriosis. I had been diagnosed at the age of 12 and told there was a 75% chance I would never be able to get pregnant because it would become more difficult every year I got older. I am very much against abortion except in severe cases like rape, incest, or if it is fatal to the mother. My fiancé is now trying to pressure me into having an abortion and I fear that since I have already had a miscarriage and a difficult time getting pregnant, will I ever be able to again, and will I be able to live with the decision to kill a child. If someone would give some words of advice I would really appreciate it!!! Thank you all!! -Sadie

Please have your baby. Like you say, it could be your only chance. If you can't raise him, there are many wonderful people that would love to adopt him. Believe me, you will mourn this child for the rest of your life if you have an abortion of a healthy child.

My older sister experience something very similar. She chose Adoption. Abortion was never in the question. Adoption was extremely difficult for her but that boy is now 15 years old and has had a wonderful life with a great family. Please do not abort your child. You will regret having an abortion every day of your life. Having a child is one of the best things that can happen to you. They fill you with joy. Nothing beats having your child say your name for the first time. Nothing is better than hearing them laugh. Do not silence that voice! I wish you all the best.

I had an abortion two days ago and now I think I made a mistake and my boyfriend wanted the baby but my parents would've written me off...I do wish I would've kept him or her, but at the time my only thought was my parents. I do hope my baby, God will forgive me cause don't think I'll forgive myself, not a day goes by without me crying over my now angel. I'm so sorry LEE-ANN or MICHEAl!!!

Hi I was 13 when I had an abortion. I had it because in my eyes I was too young. Reading these poems makes me so sad. I'm 17 in a week and I'm still trying to get over it. I remember the date and everything and when it comes to that I just wanna cry. I wish I kept my little baby.. Purely because I miss him :( I want him to be happy were he is. So if anyone knows of any way of coping don't hesitate me Add me on Facebook.

This message is for Connie, Tennessee!

I am not sure if you are aware of the fact that people get abortion even after 3 months!! An unborn fetus's heart starts beating at about 5 weeks! That's about one month! If you can have an abortion after 1 month then it's simply wrong! So that means it is a child when abortion is allowed to take place! The "BLOB" or The "Ball of tissue" which ever you call it, grows it's fingers and toes by 2 months! I understand that abortions are sometimes needed to save the life of the pregnant woman. But that's a whole different story! Careless teens make horrible choices by having sex when they shouldn't be and usually end up aborting their child! why don't you just give the baby a life and if you can't take care of it put it up for Adoption than just simply killing a poor innocent baby! This poem is for those careless teenagers and even married woman who got pregnant and just don't want an another baby........

  • Connie by Connie, Tennessee

It isn't a child at the time when an abortion is LEGALLY allowed to take place, its basically just a blob, a fetus. So basically, you're "killing" a ball of tissue. You aren't even allowed to have an abortion after 3 months of being pregnant. If abortion was outlawed, you'd have more mothers getting killed and infected by back alley abortions than anything, and if medical abortions weren't legal, that's what women would turn too. Besides, you shouldn't try and tell other women what they can and can't do, its sick. I myself am pro-choice. It's our body, we'll do what we want with it.

  • Alice Estrada by Alice Estrada

It is your body, but it is not a ball of tissue. From the time of conception, the very first cells are alive, growing to become a child. What about his body? You are not doing anything to your body; you're are tearing, dismembering his or hers. If you have a heart, you will cry after for the rest of your life.

It is an exceptional piece narrated through the innocents' viewpoint. I almost aborted my youngest son but due to how far along I was, it wasn't an option. I praise the Lord daily for that small miracle because I couldn't imagine my life without Davi. Thanks for vocalizing the unheard voice.

  • Gemma by Gemma, Australia

I am in year 12 and doing an exposition on abortion.

I love pro-life, although I do understand there are some EXTREME cases in which, for the benefit of either or both the mother and child its better to do the unthinkable.

I would like to just say if its okay with you I will be using your poem as an example; fully referenced of course.

so thank you very much, I had a hard time holding back the tears during class time. =D

July 1st 2010 my daughter delivered my grandson at 17 weeks. We don't know why she miscarried. The hurt has been almost unbearable for all of us. After experiencing this kind of loss I was curious of how someone could end the life of something so precious sometimes without even a second thought. Reading these poems today I can see how so many are affected by their decision.

  • Teilla by Teilla, USA

I am writing a persuasive essay for my Junior English Class, and your poem brought tears to my eyes. I've always been pro-life. I believe abortions should only be used if it is a life or death situation. For everything else there is adoption. I personally want to adopt two of the three kids. Abortion should be used to save lives, not end them.

  • Littin Modoor by Littin Modoor, Canada

Thanks for the comments and stories!!

Something that made me write a poem in the perspective of a child was these crucial facts and stats:

"More than 42 million abortions were carried out from 1973 to 2002
2 out of every 100 women have an abortion each year"

I agree with the comments above, I know how valuable a child is for his/her mother. But, I wanted to reach out to those 42 million mothers who didn't think the same way!! I do realize that there can be exception as (Manda's case) above. But it is hard to believe that those 42 million cases were exceptions.

"This poem begs the question, why would anyone purposely kill their own baby?"
Hanna, I know no mother can perform that act! But, that's the question I am trying to ask to those 42 million mothers.

"this poem made me cry and cry."
Christie, I apologize if it made you cry!! Tears flow through my eyes too when I read those facts.

Thanks for reading the poem !!!

  • Christie by Christie, UK

As a mother of two angels both stillborn (The most recent being 12 days ago and his older sister just a year ago) this poem made me cry and cry. I know how in some cases it is necessary (as in Manda's case above) but I cannot understand why anyone else would make the choice to do this. Personally I would do anything to have my beautiful babies here :(

  • Hannah by Hannah, US

I am currently writing an argumentative essay on abortion, and I thought it would be neat to have a poem on how the baby sees abortion. This was the first poem I read on this website and it gave me goose bumps. This poem begs the question, why would anyone purposely kill their own baby?

  • Manda Jean by Manda Jean

Sometimes abortion is the best thing to do for a baby.....

My name is Manda and I'm 17 years old. I got pregnant and was told my baby would suffer extreme birth defects to its major organs and had a 20% chance of even making it past 6 months of me being pregnant due to the medications that I was on. I didn't want to abort my baby, that's the last thing I EVER wanted but it wasn't fair to bring a baby into this world that would suffer so much.

I had the abortion 3 weeks ago and every day I feel guilt and pain for doing that to my perfect little angel.

To some people abortion isn't right and I used to be pro-life until now. Sometimes there is exceptions and times where you need to become a little more open minded.

Your poem was written nicely though.
