Cherish all the wombs equally

They crossed the threshold of their bodies
To dictate the progress of their pregnancies
Wombs from good stock, respectable wombs
Unredeemable wombs, children’s wombs
Wombs that gave birth to children born outside of dignity
The dignity of life reserved for life inside the wombs
Wombs from well-to-dos, do-what-you-want-with-them wombs
Fallen wombs, wombs from impoverished backgrounds
Against the background of dignified silence and shame
Shame on them all
All of us
