A woman who wants an abortion
Will be punished for thinking such thoughts.
It’s a new form of right-wing extortion
That carries quite personal costs.
For most of the women involved
A vaginal probe there must be
To get the sound image resolved.
The lawmakers even agree
There’s no medical need for this law.
The aim of this shameful abuse
Is simply to stop or forestall
A woman’s freedom to choose.
The right’s against all intrusions
Into freedoms that governments take,
But they come to quite different conclusions
When it’s a woman whose rights are at stake.
