Last week, LifeSiteNews reported about a popular video among abortion fanatics at the moment where a young, twenty-something girl from Scotland named Leyla Josephine recites a slam poem about aborting her self-described "daughter," characterizing the act as a sacrifice for the "right to choose," a sacrifice she claims would've been reciprocated had she been given the chance...Yea, right!
The poem, titled "I Think She Was A She," has made quite the rounds in feminist circles since being posted to Youtube a month ago. On Thursday last week, HuffPost Women lauded the entire video as an "unapologetic" work of feminist performance art.
In the video, the proudly-grinning Leyla Josephine, wearing military garb, begins her poem by describing what probably would've happened had her now aborted daughter been allowed to live. The whole episode sounds eerily similar to a mother grieving over a miscarriage.
"I know she was a she and I think she would've looked exactly like me," Leyla says. "I would've told her stories about her grandfather, we could've fed the swans at Victoria Park. She would've been like you too, long limbs with a sarcastic smile and a new pair of kicks...She could have been born."
Shortly thereafter, Leyla continues by describing her decision to abort with some of the most ludicrous lines of reasoning. According to the Glasgow native, her daughter sacrificed herself for the cause of "choice," and Leyla would've gladly returned the favor had she been given the chance.
“I would’ve supported her right to choose," Leyla says. "To choose a life for herself, a path for herself. I would’ve died for that right like she died for mine. I’m sorry, but you came at the wrong time."
As pointed out by LifeSiteNews, her logic makes no sense since her daughter made no decision to sacrifice herself, but rather had it self-imposed on her from above against her will.
In the old days, we called this infanticide. The very fact she refers to her daughter as a "she" indicates Josephine probably had a late-term abortion.
"I am not ashamed. I am not ashamed," she continues. "I’m so sick of keeping these words contained. I am not ashamed."
She repeats the phrase "I'm not ashamed" a total of six times; "this is my body" a total of three.
"Don't you mutter murder on me," Leyla later commands as she employs typical feminist tropes about deaths from back-alley abortions and coat hangers to self-righteously deflect the truth that she did, in fact, murder a baby.
Just a regular Robert Frost.
