"I Would Die for That" as written by and James Thomas/coffey Slater....
Jenny was my best friend.
Went away one summer.
Came back with a secret
She just couldn't keep.
A child inside her,
Was just too much for her
So she cried herself to sleep.

And she made a decision
Some find hard to accept.
To young to know that one day
She might live to regret.

But I would die for that.
Just to have one chance
To hold in my hands
All that she had.
I would die for that.

I've been given so much,
A husband that I love.
So why do I feel incomplete?
With every test and checkup
We're told not to give up.
He wonders if it's him.
And I wonder if it's me.

All I want is a family,
Like everyone else I see.
And I won't understand it
If it's not meant to be.

'Cause I would die for that.
Just to have one chance
To hold in my hands
All that they have.
I would die for that.

And I want to know what it's like
To bring a dream to life.
For that kind of love,
What I'd give up!
I would die for that.

Sometimes it's hard to conceive,
With all that I've got,
And all I've achieved,
What I want most
Before my time is gone,
Is to hear the words
"I love you, Mom."

I would die for that.
Just to have once chance
To hold in my hands
What so many have
I would die for that.

And I want to know what it's like
To bring a dream to life.
How I would love
What some give up.
I would die
I would die for that.

    Song Meaning"The first verse of this song, which Coffey wrote about her experience with infertility, references a friend's abortion as a point of contrast"

    I was also in Kellie situation. I had just been diagnosed with PCOS, the leading cause of infertility. My sister was pregnant and keeping the baby, after much thought in the option of adoption. A friend messaged me via FB, said she was 7 wks, fighting with the father, and leaning towards abortion. she asked me to pray for her. i did, but she still chose to end his life. her baby would have been born on the first year anniversary of me being dx'd with PCOS, August 15 (2013)

    There are so many women out there ttc (trying to conceive) and then there are young teens and young adult women who get pregnant 'by accident' and they choose abortion....it is not fair! I have friends who have been ttc-ing for decades! some have lost hope, some have had miscarriages, and stillbirths, and still some have unexplained infertility.

    Please, before you abort, think about us, the infertile community around you and around the world (in the US alone, there are 5 million women who suffer PCOS). Think about the child growing inside of you, that could bring hope, joy, and happiness for one of us. <3
