Little Wee One

The second a person is born they have FULL rights of citizenship and protection under the law. What about the time before that PERSON was born. I have written a poem that describes this reality in America today. Please consider it.

Little Wee One
Poem by Rob Holston

I am a little wee one
down deep inside within.
I am the answer to the question,
“When does human life begin?”

The moment of conception
when two lives did twine.
I began my life down here.
It’s really quite divine.

I feel so warm, protected,
held close by your embrace.
I can hardly wait 9 months
to see you face to face.

When you and daddy did the deed
I sprang to life with lightning speed.
two cells united became one,
my little human life begun.

Take care of me dear mommy now.
I’m more than just a fetus.
Please don’t let immoral law
and government defeat us.

I feel no pain within your womb,
a place of sanctuary,
but if Planned Parenthood finds me here
things really might get scary.

I’m more than just a little blob
to seek and to destroy.
I’m actually your little girl,
maybe your little boy.
