This is the generation that will abolish abortion

$315 dollars ain’t worth the price of your soul.

First I will say that there is controversy regarding some of the songs and poetry by the artist, Common. I am in no way supporting his work or what he says in some of it. I do however think this song has some great insight and wanted to see what you all thought about it. It comes from a perspective of regret over an abortion, a father in pain from the decision he made.

So many times we forget the pain and regret that men go through after an abortion and only focus on the hurting woman. I love the fact that both Silent No More and Rachel’s Vineyard focus also on healing for men after abortion.

I would love to see a song like this that stressed the forgiveness and hope of Christ as part of the message.

    WOW! So, how long has this song been out? Why isn’t anyone talking about this? Why don’t they speak openly about their pain? Why don’t interviewers ask about these songs? Why is everything hidden in plain sight? I don’t understand how all these artists continue to release songs like this one and NO ONE is talking about them – it’s just the same old, same old media representing blacks and hispanics with the irresponsible, partier images!! Why aren’t these artists using their fame to create a movement of change for our people?? This song means nothing if it’s going to stay hidden and continue to be THE SECRET.

    Sad… Good for him for stepping out of the “norm” & writing about something that means something. I really pray young people hear this message & think twice about any bad choices they are facing <3

    @RosalindaL Common originally released this song back in 1997! He re-released it in 2008 on his “best of” album. I only found this song about 3 months ago but some of the lyrics are very telling. There are many pro-life songs out there but they get overshadowed by the “good” songs on a album which make it to the radio. I think the most successful pro-life song was Happy Birthday by Flipsyde closely followed by Nick Cannon’s Can I Live.
