They’re intent on killing free-e-doms,
and it’s more than Roe v. Wade
They want state control of women
and they want us all afraid
They assault female autonomy
and it’s more than forcing birth
‘cause they see us as their property
and our lives do not have worth

When they talk about the “right to life,”
they mean fetuses unborn
After birth some babies have no rights
and the mother’s life is scorned
If they cared about life’s ”sanctity”
they’d end massacres in schools,
end the homelessness and poverty –
But instead they’re just plain cruel

We must start a revolution
to reclaim our civil rights
We will stop this persecution
And it’s gonna be a fight
We will not live in the Handmaid’s Tale
We refuse to be abused
We will not be terrorized by males
We’ll be free to live and choose!
