Fetus!

HEADLINE:
SUPREME (PAPAL) COURT UPHOLDS FEDERAL BAN
ON SO-CALLED "PARTIAL-BIRTH" ABORTIONS:
“Impartial” Catholic majority votes against other justices

(to the tune of "Beat It!)
(For your singalong pleasure, download a midi file;
this site
gives you several versions to choose from.)

They told her, “Don’t forget the Pope we revere.
No partial-birth abortion can be gotten here.
That thing inside your womb could become our next Scalia.”
That fetus, your fetus.

Alito says an operation’s forbid,
And Kennedy does, too. You know he ain’t no Yid.
They’ve gotta be tough, cause they worship that kid:
Your fetus. Hey, you gotta give birth.

Your fetus, fetus.
“Bring it round and have it meet us.”
Bortions are gunky. God’s in control.
Doctors don’t matter. Cells have a soul.
Your fetus, fetus.
That fetus, fetus.

They’re out to get you if you plead with your doc.
“It ain’t about your health,” says Thomas. “That’s a crock!”
The Cath’lics are in charge, an’ your body’s in hock
To fetus, your fetus.

They really care about your embryo’s plight.
Your privacy don’t count, cause they have seen the light.
Judge Roberts’ Constitution says your unborn has a right.
That fetus — yeah, you’re gonna give birth!

Your fetus, fetus.
“Bring it round and have it meet us.”
Bortions are gunky. God’s in control.
Doctors don’t matter. Cells have a soul.

Your fetus, fetus.
“Women's rights cannot retreat us.”
Bortions are gunky. God's in control.
Doctors don’t matter. Cells have a soul.
Your fetus (fetus, fetus, fetus).
Fetus (fetus, fetus, fetus).

Mock on, mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau...

You're still stuck with the decision.

I would expect a much more incisive criticism from someone like you, Ex.

This poem's crap. Doesn't even really work with the song.

Dude, you are seriously whacked. I don't suppose you live in California. You and my husband would get along great.
