Islam and the LDS are Closer Than We’d Like

We want to protect you,
especially certain parts of you
Please don’t throw yourself
down stairs or drink Cytotec to
kill your babies.

Your wombs want
life, Ms. Judillas of the world;
we want the lives that
your wombs will provide.

Be not selfish, like those American and
European women with their
abortifacient and feticidal ways—
They will surely die in a state of disgrace.

Filipinas (and women everywhere),
God has graciously entrusted
you with a sacred duty:
Motherhood. Lots of it.
It may indeed be your cross,
so woman up and bear it
(along with lots and lots of children!)
