Feel Protest-y Friday, Ani Difranco Edition
and if you don’t like abortion
don’t have an abortion!
and teach your children
how they can avoid them
but don’t treat all women
like they are your children
compassion has many faces, many names
and if men can kill
and be decorated instead of blamed
then a woman called upon to mother
can choose to refrain
This is from the newest album, ¿Which Side Are You On?. The full lyrics of this song have some women-as-mothers stuff that the Little Folksinger has been on about since she had her own child, and which I’m not particularly fond of. Regardless, I think this is still her best album in years.
The post title is a nod to “Feel Good Friday,” for which some people post music.
