Sometimes music can move us in ways that words simply cannot. Here are some beautiful songs that celebrate life or tell of the pain of abortion.
There Goes My Life- Kenny Chesney
This song is about a teenager who finds out his girlfriend is pregnant. At first he thought his life was over but he soon learns that his baby girl is the light of his life.
Can I Live?- Nick Cannon
This song tells the story of how Nick Cannon’s mother almost had him aborted but changed her mind just in time
What it Means to be Loved- Mark Schultz
This song’s story is about how Schultz’s wife wanted to adopt children who are either special needs or ones who are not going to live long because they’re terminally ill. She simply wanted to show them a great Birthday or Christmas before they passed away.
Happy Birthday- Flipsyde
This song has a bit of a different message, it is an apology from a father’s point of view. He’s wishing the baby he aborted a Happy Birthday and asking for forgiveness.
To Zion- Lauryn Hill
