    I’m no fan of rap by any stretch of the imagination, but a friend on another Pro-Life site told us about this, and I thought I’d pass it on.

    Here’s an incredible opportunity to get the pro-life message on MTV. Even if you don’t watch it, millions of young people do and you have the chance to get a video on Total Request Live that shows strongly the pro-life message. It’s already been shown on BET.

    It’s called Can I Live by rapper Nick Cannon. The lyrics are down below. It’s a true story about how his mother wanted to abort him, but chose life. The video shows his mother lying in the abortion clinic, next to all the instruments, and Nick pleading (sort of like he’s a spirit) for her not to kill him, saying “that’s a life inside you, look at your tummy/what is becoming Ma, I am Oprah bound/ you can tell he’s a star from the Ultrasound.” In the end, she jumps off the table and runs out of the clinic, with Nick thanking her for the gift of life.

    HERE’S WHAT YOU DO! GO TO http://www.mtv.com/onair/trl/vote/
    AND SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM, WHERE YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO TYPE “OTHER” VIDEO. SELECT “OTHER” THEN TYPE IN UNDER Artist Name: “Nick Cannon” and UNDER Video Title: “Can I Live”

    VOTE AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE (YOU CAN VOTE AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT), AND PASS THIS ALONG; WE NEED THOUSANDS OF VOTES TO GET IT IN THE TOP TEN, AND IF WE DO, IT WILL BE AWESOME!

    Here are the lyrics:

    NICK CANNON (f/ Anthony Hamilton) LYRICS

    Can I Live

    [Talking]
    Talking Ma
    I know the situation is personal,
    but it something that has to be told
    as I was making this beat
    you was all I could think about;
    you heard my voice

    [Verse 1]
    Yeah Just think Just Think
    what if you could Just
    Just blink your self away..
    Just Just wait just pause for a second
    Let me plead my case
    Its the late 70’s Huh
    You seventeen huh
    and having me that will ruin everything huh
    its alot of angels waiting for their wings
    you see me in your sleep, so you can’t kill your dreams
    300 dollars that’s the price of living, what?

    Mommy, I dont like this clinic
    hopefully you’ll make the right decision
    and don’t go though with the Knife Decision
    but it hard to make the right move
    when you in high school
    how you have to work all day and take night school
    hopping off da bus when the rain is pouring
    What you want morning sickness or the sickness of mourning?

    [Chorus]
    I Will Always Be a part of you
    Trust Your Soul Know His Heart Is True
    If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
    CAN I LIVE
    CAN I LIVE
    I Will Always Be a part of you
    Trust Your Soul Know His Heart Is True
    If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
    CAN I LIVE
    CAN I LIVE
    [Verse 2]

    I am a child of the King
    ain’t no need to go fear me
    and i see the flowing tears so know that you hear me
    when i move in your womb that’s me being scaring
    cause who knows where my future holds

    yo the truth be told you ain’t told a soul
    yo you ain’t even showing I just 2 moths old
    through your clothes try to hide me, deny
    me went up 3 sizes
    your pride got you lying saying ain’t nothing but a migraine
    it ain’t surprising you not trying to be in WIC food lines

    your friends look at you funny but look at you mommy
    thats a life inside you, look at your tummy
    what is becoming ma I am Oprah bound
    you can tell he’s a star from the Ultrasound
    Our Sprits Connected Doors Open Now
    Nothing But Love And Respect Thanks For Holding Me Down She Let Me Live…[Chorus]
    I Will Always Be a part of you
    Trust Your Soul Know His Heart Is True

    If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
    CAN I LIVE
    CAN I LIVE
    I Will Always Be a part of you
    Trust Your Soul Know His Heart Is True
    If I Could Talk I Would Say To You
    CAN I LIVE
    CAN I LIVE[Repeat 2]

    [Talking]

    Its uplifting for real y’all
    I ain’t passing no judgement
    ain’t making no decisions
    I am just telling ya’ll my story
    my love life
    I love my mother for giving me life
    we all need to appreciate life
    a strong women that had to make a sacrifice
    Thanks for listening
    Thanks for listening
    Mama thanks for listening

    Those are some dope lyrics! It’s very similar to Nas’ song called “Fetus” and also one of RZA’s songs called “Unborn Child”. There might be hope for rap if they stop playing the junk part of rap on the radio….
