ABORTION 2022

A woman's body does not
Belong, to the government.
Once again, this borders on
Personal harassment.

The woman's body is hers,
It's a personal choice.
The abortion issue ignites the
Woman and her voice.

A typical case of men trying
To control women.
It is a personal thing what
Can grow in her abdomen.

Do you really want another?
Suffragette movement?
Are you doing this for?
Your own amusement?

Abortion has no place
On a ballot.
It will end up in
The court of appellate.

If Roe-VS-Wade,
is overturned.
It is bad juju for
All concerned.

Let's not get the women of
America in an uproar.
The government should stick
To the faces on MT. Rushmore.

I am a woman, I beg you,
"Leave this one alone".
This belongs to the women,
Choice each to their own.

Single mom's make-up the
The majority of single parenting.
If you poke at this,
Beware the day of reckoning.

There are many reasons why
A woman would choose abortion.
If we upset this, it can throw
Our existence out of proportion.

I have very little to say about the idea of abortion. I do not think that any woman would let a pregnancy go very far, if she needs or wants to terminate it. You have made it abundantly clear, that it is a woman's perogitive and her body.
While your rhythm is a bit ragged here and thewre, I see no obvious flaws in this piece. ~ Geezer.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

it is worse than (personal harassment) you need something stronger. the government is intruding where they don't belong and acting like a dictator. imposing their morals on a woman who wants an abortion. good poem, it needs a bit of work. I know you are up to it.
