This song is by Shannon Murray.

It's 2006 and we don't give a shit

It's 2006 and we don't give a shit

That Roe v. Wade is crumbling

We can't trust the government

A piece of legislation is all that stands between our freedom

And your commandments

It's 2006 and we don't give a shit that we have no alternatives

But imagine a time before Roe v. Wade

When they'd pick up scared scared women on the corner and they'd

Blindfold them and put them in a car

Drive round in circles till they didn't know where they were

They didn't know where they were

And they'd take them to a room where some sleazy man

Would say hey I'm a doctor and he'd put his hands on her

And say honey if you don't have all the money it's ok

You can suck my dick

I'll let you suck my dick

And there's a history unknown

In 1969 the women of Chicago rose and said we're not gonna take this

They didn't take it to the courts they didn't picket in the street

They knew direct action was the only way choice is free.

They set up a clinic an abortion clinic

And no one was turned away just because they couldn't pay

They performed over 11,000 abortions with kindness and compassion

They were just housewives and mothers

They were just students

There were no hospitals there were no doctors there were no nurses

And there were no men

And nobody died, nobody died, nobody died

How's that for demystified

And there's a history unknown

In 1969 the women of Chicago rose and said we're not gonna take this

It's 2006 and we don't give a shit

It's 2006 and we don't give a shit

That Roe v. Wade is crumbling

We can't trust the government

A piece of legislation is all that stands between our freedom

And your commandments

And with or without the legal right we're not really free

No we're not really free

'Cause the capitalist medical industry will never take care of you or me

And the patriarchic medical industry will never take care of you or me

Never take care of you or me

And the abortion industry is just legalized brutality

Power taken, knowledge withheld

A medical mystery upheld by science and little white men in little white coats

Little white men in little white coats

So we can't leave this to the doctors we can't leave this to the lawyers

We can't leave this to the Christians we can't leave this to the president

If we don't decide the circumstances of our own lives

Then choice is just choosing to let someone else decide

And there's a history unknown

In 1969 the women of Chicago rose and said we're not gonna take this
