Can a 5-minute video about a teenager with a crisis pregnancy change the hearts and minds of abortion supporters? This song and video, by the former lead singer of the group Kansas, has the potential to do just that.

If you’re a child of the ’70s and ’80s, you probably remember the prog rock band Kansas for songs like “Carry On Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” John Elefante became the group’s lead singer in 1981, the year the band was the top-grossing concert act in the world. Elefante later went on to have a successful career as a producer, with a number of the albums he produced earning GMA Dove Awards and Grammy Awards. Elefante also continued to perform; he has produced and/or performed on more than 100 major label albums.

Elefante is out with a new solo album, On My Way to the Sun (great reviews on Amazon), and one of the album’s singles, “This Time,” shares the story of his adopted daughter’s rescue from the abortionist’s scalpel.

The song tells the story of a 13-year-old girl with a crisis pregnancy. Terrified and alone, she falls asleep in the waiting room of the abortion clinic, where she sees the life of her unborn child unfolding in a dream:

There was a birthday cake and three candles
She was living in another world
She saw the little girl become a woman,
living in a happy home
Then she was suddenly awakened
by a voice that called her name

The clinic staff escorts her to the back — she has second thoughts. The nurses tell her, ”Don’t worry, you’ll be fine.You’re still young, we see this all the time.” She cries out to God for help and asks for a phone to call her mother. “Find my baby a home!”

Right then the Lord began to speak:
“You’re not taking this one! She’s Mine!
She’ll grow up to seek My name.
You’re not taking her this time.
I started before time began.
Her name is written in the Book.
They didn’t have the power to take her life.”

The story is powerful and soul-wrenching.

Another really powerful anti-abortion song is the Kid Rock song called "Abortion." It is from the father's point of view after his child is aborted, and he imagines the life his child could have led. It is so sad I can't listen to it anymore because it makes me cry.

Look abortion is a form of human sacrifice and abortion clinics are abattoirs.

Nothing will change their mind, nothing will touch their heart.

Would that their mothers had followed their views and saved the world some trouble.

"can a song change the hearts of Abortion Supporters?"
Sadly, I have to say no.
Not any more.

They are not mere "abortion supporters" these days...
They behead Catholic religious statues in my Pennsylvania town, topple the Ten Commandments in Washington, chant "hail satan" at their rallies and "pray" to him to keep the Abortion Sacrament the centerpiece of their being...

They are in the end, Rabid Statists who encourage totalitarian control so long as its THEIR party, stooges, priorities and agenda that prevails...

They represent, even among the "nicest" ones, the Banality of Evil...affluent, "educated" Hip, Modern Progressives of high self esteem....the likes of which can be seen clearly in black and white film footage of well dressed German Women forced to walk through the Liberated Camps and witness the human cost of their "lifestyle".

They will (and historically, have) tolerated any atrocity done in their name, so long as they feel empowered by The Regime to live in happy oblivion to any "inconvenience" someone elses life might cause them.

No song will bend or buttress that which they do not already have within themselves.

Personally, I think they should be made to listen to "Bodies" by the Sex Pistols. I think it gives a good picture of abortion. Play loud.
