Michael Jackson, Defender of Life?

Michael Jackson was pro-life? 

Yes, according to a new, never-before-released song Jackson penned titled “Song Groove (A/K/A Abortion Papers)“.   The song, which is a bonus track on the 25th anniversary re-release of Jackson’s hit album “Bad”, hits store shelves this week, and media are scrambling to tell the story.

Catholic site Phatmass posted the complete lyrics here, and Slate magazine included a pro-abortion, anti-God screed here, calling the tune “a goofy mix of religiosity and anxiety about women’s liberation.”  Slate’s unlovable columnist Amanda Marcotte shocks with her callous disregard for the unborn child and her disparaging of all considerations except her own:  Jackson, she writes, “judges us…for having consensual sex with age-appropriate partners without feeling obligated to go through with every accidental pregnancy.”

In Abortion Papers, Jackson plays the part of a man whose girlfriend chooses to abort his child—even though he wants the child and believes that abortion is outside the will of God.  He sings:

Those abortion papers
Signed in your name against the words of God
Those abortion papers
Think about life, I’d like to have my child.
