25 men voted to advance the bill
And a female governor signed it.
I asked myself
where my *right of choice* is?
To have or not to have a child
is the question of MY concern.
I may not have this child and
your judgement on this is spurned.
No, I am not a Marionette
and no, you are not the do-gooder.
To bring this seed into life
is not your decision to make, monsieur.
Womb: a female hormone responsive secondary sex organ
*Female*, the definition says.
*I* am your mother, your sister, your wife
I am a Human
25 bodies with penis and 1 body with a vagina
can't control the most personal decision of my life.
Do you know what it is like to be raped?
Do you know what it is like to have a relative commit incest on you?
The willingness to live dies inside you
And you expect me to bring a life
from the semen of my rapist
in my world of blues.
I want you to get out of my womb.
You don't own this.
If my uterus is a Paradise and
the seed inside me, a god's child,
you are the grim reaper
of the death of a body twice.
