$315 ain't worth your soul

Read this from Envoy Encore about how pop music (in genres from rap to rock, folk to metal) has been quietly conveying the emotional aftermath of abortion.


Phil Collins and Genesis put out a great song called "Mama" in 1983 that they say isn't about abortion, but when you listen to Phil Collins screeching the lyrics in what sounds like heartbroken agony over such a sinister background melody, you can't help but allow your mind to drift toward that topic.

"Can't you see me mama?
Mama, mama, mama please!
Can't you feel my heart?
Can't you feel my heart?
Can't you feel my heart? ooh
Listen to me mama, mama, mama!
You're taking away any last chance!
Don't take it away!
Can't you feel my heart?"
