He was bad but he was also apparently pro-life...

A posthumously released Michael Jackson “Pro-Life” song called “Abortion Papers” is hitting home for many listeners now that it has been released to the public.  In a previously-unreleased song, Jackson is heard taking a pro-life position and even goes as far as using the Bible to defend the pro-life position. Recorded in the 1980s, the song recounts the tale of a woman considering an abortion. Also known as “Song Groove,” the song  was released by Sony as part of the 25th anniversary edition of Jackson’s popular album Bad.

Despite the serious subject matter of abortion, “Song Groove” is an upbeat dance track that would have fit right in with other tracks on the album.

From verses and chorus:

Sister don’t read, she’ll never know
What about love?
Living a Christian soul
What do we get, she runs away
What about love?
What about all I pray

Sister confused, she went alone
What about love?
What about all I saw?
Biding a life, reading the words
Singing a song, citing a Bible verse

Those abortion papers
Signed in your name against the words of God
Those abortion papers
Think about life, I’d like to have my child
