When does a woman's choice belong to her and not to man or myth?
When does a woman's body belong to her and not to man or myth?

George w. Bush vowed to overturn Roe vs. Wade
By stacking the Supreme Court full of anti-choice advocates
While attorney general John Ashcroft swore to god
That he'd keep religion out of it
This bloodthirsty Texas governor, become illegitimate president,
Has some fucking nerve to call himself pro-life
He embodies the hypocritical, ignorant, sexist thinking
That's so typical of the religious right

It's her body. It's her decision
Not that of state, man or religion
The "pro-life" movement is moral fraud
Fuck their lies and fuck their god
Our bodies are not a battlefield

Government and religion have proven throughout history
That they do not place value on the sanctity of life
To now call themselves "pro-life" drastically misstates the position
Of those who are followers of a blood-soaked religion
Their fight is not about the sanctity of life
It's more about control and a woman's rightful role
And how they should adhere to living their lives Under men's supervision
And the churches moral restrictions and contradictions

It's her body. It's her decision
Not that of state, man or religion
The "pro-life" movement is moral fraud
Fuck their lies and fuck their god
Our bodies are not a battlefield

Should we once again return to the days of desperation
For women who would put their lives in jeopardy?
Going to extreme and dangerous measures
To end an unwanted pregnancy
Instead of women having rightful access
To a safe and legal medical procedure
Performed in a clean and sterile environment
By a trained, qualified and competent doctor
Without being intimidated, harassed or threatened
By the pitfalls of religious fanaticism
They exploit graphic, disgusting and misleading images
To play on people's emotions and force their religion down our throats
By giving into this religious extortion
Women will have to resort to back alley abortions
Are the women who will suffer from enforcing this restriction
Really less important than fetus or fiction?
If you don't agree with abortion then don't fucking have one
But you have no right to govern someone else's body
With your arrogant, self-righteous indignation

It's her body. It's her decision
Not that of state, man or religion
The "pro-life" movement is moral fraud
Fuck their lies and fuck their god
Our bodies are not a battlefield

    General CommentThis song uses a "her" as 2 different things: 1. The Woman is the United States of America. 2. The Woman is a real human female. the lyrics pretty much explain it all.
