Pro-Life Hip-Hop

Now, I must confess that I prefer Handel to Hip-Hop, but I'm all for using contemporary methods to transmit the timeless truths of our Faith. A friend has just alerted me to two hip-hop artists who have dealt with abortion in their work. This will be old news to their devotees - and perhaps to many American readers - but I'm sure some this side of the Atlantic will be interested to listen to the songs at this website. One piece, performed by chart-topper Nick Cannon, is particularly powerful:
Based upon his own life story, the song is sung from the prospective of a baby about to be aborted by his mother. Nick Cannon has put together powerful imagery and impassioned lyrics that add voice to the unborn pleading in the womb. As you
listen and watch you can't help but cheer as Nick's mother comes off the abortionist's table and leaves the clinic, however the most moving part is when Nick's real mom joins him at the end of the video.
The website, by the way, is called Death Roe and is for all of us in Generations X and Y (yes, that DOES include me) who are, by virtue of our existence, survivors of abortion:
On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion on demand. The decision is called Roe vs. Wade. We call it Death Roe. About one fourth of our generation has already been wiped out, and the executions continue at the rate of over 3000 a day. If you were born after that date, you are one of the unchosen.You are a Death Roe Survivor.

I saw this video a couple of years ago on EWTN's Life on the Rock, it's really moving and inspiring and I'm sure has made many people think about the true horror of abortion.
