It’s My Right by Chris Jackman
(Clinic Worker) Welcome to the clinic. Please come, take a seat.
I’ve just reviewed your test results – you’re pregnant – ‘bout 9 weeks.
(Women) What am I going to do? I can’t be pregnant again!
How can I face my family – my church, my boss, my friends?!
(Clinic Worker) In your situation, it might be wise to choose
to terminate the pregnancy. I would if in your shoes.
(Women) It’s my choice. (Clinic Worker) Such a simple solution.
(Women) It’s my life. (ClinicWorker) That’s my conclusion.
(Women) It’s my body. (Clinic Worker) Such an intrusion.
(Women) It’s my right... Isn’t it?(Clinic Worker) We can take you right now.
(Women) But I should think this through.
(Clinic Worker) Do you really think it wise to wait? You know what you should do.
(Women) But how formed is the baby?
(Clinic Worker) Mmm, just clumps of cells, at best.
Merely two teaspoons of tissue. Will this be cash or check?
*DIALOGUE BRIDGE: (True description of 9 week pre-born child)
“A pre-born child between the ages of 8-9 weeks has everything present that will be found in a fully developed adult. Her heart has been beating for more than a month, the stomach now produces digestive juices, the kidneys have started functioning, and fingerprints are
already evident. The baby responds to touch and will curl her fingers around an object placed in the palm of her hand. Recent studies indicate that even at this early stage, a pre-born child experiences pain.”
It’s my right...It’s my right... It’s my right... Isn’t it?
