Songs of abortion 1992-1998

Songs of abortion 1992-1998
This article, two previous and several upcoming, are about songs that incorporate abortion in some way. Not all of them are pro choice, some are anti choice, but I feel it is good to be exposed to both sides. Choice is always in danger, and it is good to know what we are up against.

If there are any from this period that I have overlooked feel free to head to the pro choice forums and start a discussion.
