Rapper Eminem may very well have become an anti-Trump SJW, but at least he has enough sense to recognize the inherent darkness of abortion.
As LifeNews points out, while the media has praised the famed rapper’s latest album “Revival” for its anti-Trump focus, they have failed to note that his song “River” apologizes to an aborted child.
“The song is a detailed confession of an affair, an abortion, and the regret that came after,” reports LifeNews. “Whether fictional or based on reality, ‘River‘ is a powerful cry for forgiveness for the wrong he’s done to the aborted baby (the ‘little one’ mentioned in the refrain) and the mother.”
The lyrics tell the story of a serial cheater, “a sex addict,” who slept with a woman named “Suzanne.” It started as a one-night-stand after which he left her “deserted and used.” She became pregnant and the narrator rushed her to an abortion.
“We can’t bring her in this world, shoulda knew/To use protection,” he says in the song. “I made you terminate my baby.”
He then confesses that “the person who I’m turning into’s/Irreversible” and that his actions make him a hypocrite. “[I got] on my soapbox and preach, my sermon and speech.” His mistake was like “detergent and bleach is burnin’ the wound.”
As noted by LifeNews, Eminem uses raw language throughout, referring to the child as “my baby” rather than “fetus,” saying that she would have been his “daughter” and he “really would have loved her smile.”
“All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me,” says the refrain.
The media has largely focused on Eminem’s anti-Trump and SJW bent in the album; few have even acknowledged the anti-abortion theme. Rolling Stone only spoke of the song’s “superstar cameo” in Ed Sheeran, who sings the refrain. In their analysis of the album, Billboard did not discuss the abortion element until 13 paragraphs in: “He finishes off the record admitting an abortion through his shrewd wordplay, weighing a love triangle against a rectangle — incorporating his mistress into the equation with the future child and the baby’s mother.”
