By Stanley Collymore
You’re essentially a foetus without a soul
or any moral claims on the rest of us;
no voting rights that are knowingly
being infringed - in short, you’re
dispensable in every way and rightly so.
So why should anyone bother about
you, or care in the least whether
you live or die? Unless, that is,
they have a conscience that
forces them to see your
callous murder as the
that it really is.
