For The Women of South Dakota

I am sorry for the girls
of the Black Hills of Dakota

where a woman's right to choose
has been eliminated

where even if you're raped or
a victim of child abuse

you must stay pregnant
it's all your fault

I salute the fly-in doctors
of the Black Hills of Dakota

who risk a career and life
by offering all women choice

I deplore the government
of the Black Hills of Dakota

who take the US backwards
to Roe v Wade decisions

by law ignore and care not for
the danger of a woman's life

Please, progressive women, rally
against this law on International Women's Day

Let your voice be heard, for we are strong,
sisters united, determined to have our say.
