Unborn Child by Seals and Crofts

UNBORN CHILD
(lyrics by Lana Bogan; music by James Seals, 1974)
From the album UNBORN CHILD (1974).

Oh little baby, you’ll never cry, nor will you hear a sweet lullaby.

Oh unborn child, if you only knew just what your momma was plannin’ to do.
You’re still a-clingin’ to the tree of life, but soon you’ll be cut off before you get ripe.
Oh unborn child, beginning to grow inside your momma, but you’ll never know.
Oh tiny bud, that grows in the womb, only to be crushed before you can bloom.

Mama stop! Turn around, go back, think it over.
Now stop, turn around, go back, think it over.
Stop, turn around, go back think it over.

Oh no momma, just let it be. You’ll never regret it, just wait and see.
Think of all the great ones who gave everything
That we might have life here, so please bear the pain.

Mama stop! Turn around, go back, think it over.
Now stop, turn around, go back, think it over.
Stop, turn around, go back think it over.

    As far as I know Seals and Crofts remain the only group to ever record a strong pro life song that did reasonably well on the charts. It was released in the wake of ROE vs WADE when pro abortion sentiments were strong.
    Back then I interviewed for a job at a radio station. The program manager asked me whether I would play Unborn Child. I said yes. I wasn’t hired.
    Today people, especially young adults, are embracing the pro life message like never before.Seals and Crofts are still with us. Maybe they’ll be inspired to bring back that wonderful song.
