A cry from the heart - Pro-Life song by Father Francis Maple.
We are very grateful to Father Francis Maple for allowing us to publish this rare video here. The video was found recently and a great deal of time has been spent in digitally remastering it and improving the sound and video quality.
The song was authored by Father Francis as a Pro-life song. Listen carefully to the lyrics and especially to the short interview at the end.
We hope to get a better quality sound recording of the song and post it here at a future date.

Mommy keep me safe, mommy keep me warm
Handle me with care, mommy help me to form.
I am ten weeks old, and I know the time will come
when you will give birth to me.
The gift you gave to me are a pair of bright blue eyes
So some day I will see you smile and love me.
I’ve already got my arms and a little podgy nose,
And at the end of my feet I’ve got five little toes.
I look forward to my life, ice cream and slimy snails,
teddy bears and little fairy tales.
Going for walks in the park
Running home before it’s dark.
And being tucked into bed with a kiss.
Where are we going today?
Am I in a boat or bus?
Why are we lying down?
Being drawn on four wheels?
And we go through the door
and there’s people dressed in green.
Everything seems so strange and so clean.
Mommy if they hurt you just let out a scream
and I know someone will come to help you and me.
Mommy what’s going on I am starting to cry
Come quickly they are forcing me to die.
They are killing me mommy, they are pulling me apart
My arms and my legs and now they’re at my heart.
And I won’t see the sky, or the grass or the trees.
and I won’t see the moon, or feel the breeze.
I love you mommy dear, you know I really do
But I only wish you could have loved me too!
