These are the rights that women built.

These are the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

These are the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the health care women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the clinic that provides the health care
That women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the closed door in front of the clinic
That provides the health care
That women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is the woman who needs help, outside the closed door
In front of the clinic
That provides the health care
That women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

These are the people who call it a win
When a women needs help
Outside the closed door
In front of the clinic
That provides the health care
That women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.

This is America in 2016,
Home of the people
Who call it a win
When a women needs help
Outside the closed door
In front of the clinic
That provides the health care
That women can’t get
Because of the threats
Made by the politician
Who’s fighting the court
That passed the laws
That protect the rights that women built.
