Back in 2007 I put an optimistic voice to “The Belly Song.”
“The Belly Song” celebrates life. And how it begins in a belly, so to speak. Here’s the video I made for a song. It’s part of my music for kids. But adults have told me they get a kick out of it, too. And I hope you’ll enjoy the optimistic voice approach. Feel free to let me know, either way. Here ya go…
I dearly love that I’m alive. Don’t you? And I don’t take it for granted. Well, not all the time anyway. I get to think, live, laugh, and love. And I believe it’s every person’s right to have those same gifts.
And every person started somewhere. It wasn’t in a hospital. Every person starts life in a mother’s womb. That’s one of the easiest things in the world to prove. Where things get muddy (for those who are easily confused) is how soon can we say a person is a person in the womb.
Personally, I have no problem saying a person is a person from their very beginning.
But maybe you can’t say for sure WHEN your personhood begins. You still know, without a doubt, WHERE it begins. And for now (despite the efforts of freaky so-called scientists) that’s still in a mother’s womb. And I know all it took for me to exist outside my mother’s womb was for everyone to leave me alone inside my mother’s womb. Mom and Dad and doctors and society let me get from point A to point B. No one chose to abort that life-affirming process.
Simplest biology lesson there is. Any questions?
I hope you’ll join me with your own optimistic voice and remember we ALL were belly babies. Once upon a time.
