The Child Who Was Never Born

By: Martin Hudaceka

I am the human being denied the right to breathe,
And I cry not for myself but the legacy they leave.
I am the voice in your conscience that cries from the bleak.
I am the words that the world is not willing to speak.


I am the gaze you will never see,
For I am the child who will never be.
I am the memory you cannot forsake,
I am the life they had no right to take. 


But I am the error, the unfortunate mistake
I am the cold shiver that keeps you awake.
I am the touch that you will not feel.
I am the spirit that you cannot conceal. 


They may tear me away,
And tear me apart,
But I had a right to life from before the start. 


I am the heart that will not cease to beat
I am the footprints without any feet.
I am the innocent you can't put to sleep.
For I am the tears that the fallen will weep.



"It is interesting that today many women are so educated beyond their intelligence that they no longer understand the way God

created them - with a womb to nurture life and breasts to nourish that precious life." ~ Nancy Campbell


“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5)


"The value of life has not changed; our culture has. We must turn from being a culture of death to one that values life.

When life is not valued inside the womb, it will not be valued outside the womb." ~ Unknown


"We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child." ~ Ronald Reagan


"Someone else's life should not be terminated because it interferes with yours." ~ Unknown
